Work to start within weeks on new-look Chester shot tower homes

More than £15,000 is to be spent on a new home for protected peregrine falcons which roost in the tower.

New-look plans have been approved to create a residential scheme based around Chester ’s historic 18th century shot tower and former lead works.

Cheshire developer Whitecroft Group was originally granted planning consent in August 2016 for 65 one, two and three-bed apartments at the Boughton site.

But the revised scheme will comprise 54 one and two-bedroom apartments, 15 two and three-bedroom duplex apartments and three four-bedroom townhouses.
