Lache (sometimes The Lache) is a housing estate in the city of Chester, in Cheshire, United Kingdom, with a population of around 10,000. It is located approximately 2 miles (3 km) southwest of the ancient city, with good local transport links en route to Saltney. The main streets are Cliveden Road, which runs through the centre of the estate, and Sycamore Drive. The area runs almost continuously into Westminster Park and Saltney.
Lache has two churches: St Mark's (Church of England) on St. Marks Road, and St. Clare's (Roman Catholic) on Downsfield Road. There are a number of shops including a butcher, an off-licence, a hairdresser, a bakery, a Chinese restaurant, a grocer and a newsagent. There are two schools: Lache Primary School and St Clare's Catholic Primary, with a sports facility in between the two schools. There are also several playgroups, a local branch library, a large community centre and hall, and a youth club.
Lache is the home of Chester's own community radio station, Flipside Radio, which was set up in 2007 and broadcasts twice annually.
A new railway station has been proposed for Lache.
Lache forms part of the Cheshire West and Chester council area.
