1 April, 2008 – Altrincham wins award for town centre
Altrincham claimed a runner-up prize at the Association of Town Centre Management’s recent awards ceremony in London.
The town picked up the prize in the centre mix category, with judges acknowledging Altrincham’s developing retail, leisure, cultural, environment, business, employment and housing offerings.
Nick Payne, managing director of Nikal, which is developing the £150m Altair development, said: “This is remarkable and reflects the progress that Trafford has made over the past few years. Once all the developments are completed, Altrincham will enhance its position as one of the premier town centre destinations with a superb mix of facilities on offer.”
