Middlewich development stops

Published: Tuesday, 19 May 2009

THE massive development by the side of the Big Lock on the Trent & Mersey Canal at Middlewich has stopped, as many of the houses and flats already built are still without buyers.

The development stretched from the side of the Big Lock pub right along the waterfront of the canal, with more development behind, but at the moment there is no activity whatsoever, though foundations for further properties have been laid.

If is of course all part of the current financial situation affecting a great deal of development, coupled with the collapse of the buy to rent market.
