Work To Begin

Mar 28, 2017

Oldham Council and Foxdenton LLP have today signalled that work will soon begin on their £100m joint venture regeneration scheme in Foxdenton.

The scheme will deliver up to 700,000 sq. ft. of employment space within a premium business park alongside up to 500 new homes on site, bringing 2,000 new jobs to the local area as well as much needed new housing. It will also provide a £5.4m annual boost to the local retail economy from new resident spending.

Importantly, essential infrastructure will be delivered ahead of any other development and will include a new link road connecting the A663 and B6189 with work set to being in May 2017 and lasting approximately 74 weeks.

Cllr Jean Stretton, Leader of Oldham Council said:

“I am delighted that after many years of planning we are now able to press ahead and deliver this regeneration scheme, bringing thousands of jobs and new homes to Chadderton and surrounding area.  With its strategic location near the M60 and M62 the business park signals that our Borough is truly open for commerce and will act as a catalyst for wider economic growth.

“The early delivery of the new link road and other infrastructure will kick-start this regeneration and I would ask residents to be patient while this essential construction work is undertaken and reassure them that we will be providing regular updates.” 

Mike Coulter, Foxdenton LLP said: 

“This is fantastic news for Oldham.  This £100m scheme signals the start of Oldham’s very own economic powerhouse, with thousands of jobs, much needed new homes and essential infrastructure all being delivered hand-in-hand to create an economic hub that will benefit the whole of the Borough.  

“We now have the green light and the essential infrastructure work will mark the first visible signs that work is underway on this iconic project.”
