Major road schemes and issues
St. Peter's Church, Chester
Following the receipt of the structural report in February 2023, the church wall has now been judged to be in a potentially dangerous structural condition.
Due to potential significant structural issues at that section of the wall, resulting in public safety concerns, and in accordance with Section 14 of the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984, the street and both footpaths as well as the entrance to the Rows on the corner of Northgate Street and Eastgate Street have now been closed until further notice to protect the public.
