Chester Rows

A newly formed community interest company is to collaborate with Cheshire West and Chester Council to produce a guide for the 'Reimagining the Rows' project.

Chester Great and Small (GAS) is working with Council to produce a 'how to' guide to attract investment in the mixed-use development of one of the city's most historic features.
