New businesses confirmed for castle quay 2 in Banbury

New businesses confirmed for castle quay 2 in Banbury

Castle Quay brings a waterfront food and leisure hub to the heart of Banbury.

Plans for the proposed expansion of the Castle Quay shopping complex (CQ2) have now been submitted by Hawkstone Properties on behalf of Aberdeen Asset Management, and are set to make Banbury town center a significant shopping destination with a dynamic mix of new catering and entertainment facilities. New businesses confirmed as moving into the extension of Castle Quay, will include well-known brands;

Zizzi,

Nando’s,

Handmade Burger Company,

Chiquitos,

Premier Inn,

The Light Cinema

and Lidl.

The news that a major food retailer is returning to the town centre will be welcomed by local residents and visitors alike, particularly as it will be run by Lidl, the UK’s fastest growing food store chain, which prides itself on competitively-priced food of exceptional quality.

CQ2’s new cinema will be run by the Light Cinema Company, a hugely successful cinema operator. The Light Cinema’s plans will be welcome news for Banbury’s film fanatics as the move will see CQ2 boast an 8-screen multiplex with over 1,300 seats. Known for having a different outlook on how the cinema experience should be enjoyed, The Light will offer a wide range of on-screen content including blockbusters, independent and international films, as well as broadcasts of live arts and sports programmes.

Keith Pulling, CEO, The Light Cinemas Ltd said:

“The Light chose Banbury as a developing town, currently without a modern cinema offering. The Light will be a premium cinema experience with a commitment to local community engagement, showing a broad range of films and events to appeal to all age groups,”

Premier Inn, will offer 117 bedrooms plus one of their in-house restaurant brands. Premier Inn is one of the UK’s most successful hotel chains, offering friendly and comfortable service and food at great prices. All rooms will overlook the canal.

An important feature of the CQ2 project will be the canal side location. Restaurants and cafes will offer an alfresco dining experience, adjacent to an attractive waterfront setting.

With the cinema, hotel and restaurants set to attract much higher numbers of visitors to Castle Quay, shoppers will also benefit from extended opening hours. The shopping centre will remain open late into the evening, allowing cinema-goers and diners to walk through Castle Quay, to the town centre, on their way home. The development will also provide an additional 240 car parking spaces for the town centre, including wheelchair accessible parking.

Cllr Barry Wood, leader of Cherwell District Council, said:

“This project has been a long time coming for Banbury and will breathe new life into the town centre. For years Banbury has been calling for a multiscreen cinema and since the closure of Somerfield in 2007 has been without a town centre supermarket. This development will address both of those shortages while the addition of new restaurants and a hotel will create a thriving town centre for visitors to enjoy during the day as well as long into the evening.”

Cameron Murray from Aberdeen Asset Management commented;

“We’ve been working on this complex project for a number of years, and are delighted that we can now start putting names to the food store, cinema, hotel and restaurants units. These are well known names and new entrants to the town which will offer a huge amount of variety for existing and new visitors to Banbury. With over £35 million being invested into this project, we believe it will have a positive benefit on the whole town centre, as well as Castle Quay Shopping Centre.”

The final planning documents have now been submitted to Cherwell District Council, and it is hoped will be approved within the next few months. This will allow the developers to be on site by autumn 2017 with the majority of CQ2 being fully open for Christmas 2018.
