Our place partnership with Oldham takes an important first step

Our plans to transform Oldham town centre with up to 2,000 quality new homes have taken an exciting step forward.

Works have started at Oldham Council’s Civic Centre – one of the many sites that are being released for redevelopment to support the town centre’s regeneration.

Phil Mayall and Cllr Arooj Shah, Leader of Oldham Council, visited the site to mark the milestone.

Cllr Shah, who is also Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Reform, said:

“This is a huge moment for Oldham’s future. Oldhamers tell me they want our town centre to be better, that they desperately need new homes, and they want more opportunities for themselves and their families.

We’re listening and we’re delivering on our residents’ priorities. We’re breathing new life into our town centre, building modern, quality new homes and creating new jobs, apprenticeships, leisure and greenspace in the process.”

Phil added;

We’re passionate about the incredible opportunity in front of us to reinvigorate Oldham’s town centre and we’re excited to be in partnership with Oldham Council to develop a plan that will deliver the best possible outcomes for the town and its residents. The site investigation works signal the start of this this journey to deliver transformative change for the town centre. ”
Harry Catherall, Chief Executive of Oldham Council, Cllr Arooj Shah and Phil Mayall, Managing Director

The regeneration of the Civic Centre is being made possible thanks to the redevelopment of Spindles. More than 700 council staff are relocating to offices within the repurposed shopping centre, freeing up the Civic Centre site for new homes.

Other sites that will be redeveloped through the Muse partnership include the former Magistrates’ Court, the former Leisure Centre and the Tommyfield Market site, which is also relocating into the new-look Spindles.
