Macclesfield Town Centre Recovery Plan

Visit Macclesfield will be spearheading the Town Centre Recovery Plan this Spring. Before the shutdown, our town guide received an average of over 10,000 visits per month. The majority of visitors are based locally in Macclesfield and across North East Cheshire and are actively look for things to do, places to eat, drink, shop and want to know more information about local events.

The Visit Macclesfield website has been revamped and we’re currently updating listing to include more up to date information as town centre businesses reopen in April and May, as we all follow the Government road map out of shutdown.

In January 2021, Macclesfield Town Council’s ‘Town Centre Recovery Plan’ stated that there needed to be a ‘buy-local’ campaign and we are helping to push that message. The recovery plan also stated that

“Businesses and residents alike identified scope for enticing more people into the town centre via clear, accessible communications on such things as opening times, services and goods on offer, and indeed wider marketing of what’s going on in the town centre and reasons to visit.”

As our town guide website is currently the most comprehensive guide to Macclesfield businesses, we will be spearheading local efforts to boost footfall into the town centre and promote all the great things out town has to offer both Maxonians and visitors.

The New Macclesfield App!

We’re very excited to announce the new Visit Macclesfield App will also be launching in April. The app will be a new convenient way for Maxonians and visitors to access information on local businesses via their smartphone (both Android & Apple).

Marketing

We’re ready to support local retail and hospitality businesses with a comprehensive marketing campaign. This will include paid campaign promotions across social media plus a leaflet campaign covering over 30,000 households across Macclesfield and Bollington, as well as working actively with local press. Our team will be busy filming around the town centre from mid April onwards. If you would like to be one of the first businesses to feature on our video blogs, just email [email protected]

Adverting Partners

We currently don’t receive any funding from Cheshire East Council or Macclesfield Town Council. Our network is funded by the support of local businesses and in return they receive comprehensive advertising across the website and marketing material. We have a limited opportunity for local advertising partners. If you want your business or brand associated with something positive helping the town and want to reach more customers, email [email protected] or call us directly on 01625 919192.
