The exciting plans for the first phase of the transformation of Chester's historic Cathedral Quarter are to be displayed for people to comment on.

The Chester Cathedral Quarter partnership is keen for Chester residents and visitors to view the display boards and feedback their comments.

Rita Waters, Chief Executive of Chester Renaissance, said: "The people of Chester are a vital part of our consultation process and we want to encourage everyone to get involved in this exciting transformation of the cathedral."

The display about the project will be placed in the Cathedral Undercroft and the second floor of the Forum Offices on Monday, 15 March for two weeks. The display will then move to the Visitor Information Centre at Cheshire Oaks from Monday, 22 March.

Phase one of the transformation of Chester Cathedral is being led by a partnership of the Cathedral, Cheshire West and Chester Council and Chester Renaissance with the aim of attracting an extra 130,000 visitors a year to the city.

Cllr Richard Short, Executive Member, Culture and Recreation said: "We are confident that this project will result in a major increase of visitors to the Cathedral and city bringing considerable economic benefits to Chester and the whole region."
