Planning Permission granted for the redevelopment of Crompton Place, Bolton

Planning permission has been granted for the £250m replacement of Crompton Place shopping centre with a mixed-use, masterplan-led redevelopment of this strategically important town centre site, which lies at the heart of Bolton Council’s £1.5bn plans for the town centre.

The scheme is a key step forward in delivering an exciting vision for a refreshed and revitalised Bolton town centre and includes a complementary mix of uses in line with the current agenda for tackling struggling town centres.

Complimentary mix of uses includes a hotel, homes, office space, retail, leisure, dining and events space

The project is being brought forward by Bolton Regeneration Ltd., a partnership between Beijing Construction & Engineering Group International and regeneration specialists Midia Group, which is working alongside Bolton Council to realise the scheme.

Designed by Chapman Taylor, the mixed-use scheme for the site includes a 110-bedroom hotel, 150 homes, 10,500m² of office space and a mixed-use retail, leisure, dining and events space (dubbed “Bolton Works”) designed to accommodate independent retailers and food operators as well as providing incubator space for small business start-ups.

A comprehensive public realm design will provide a predominantly pedestrianised environment with user-friendly shared surfaces designed in line with current best practice.

The development will be seamlessly integrated into the wider streetscape and urban fabric to help reunite Bradshawgate with Victoria Square and improve the access and pedestrian flows within the town centre. It will also act as a formal backdrop to the town hall, completing the high-quality set-piece of the square and featuring a colonnade which shelters artisan cafés and restaurants.

Great emphasis has been placed on long-term economic and environmental sustainability through the complementary mix of uses, choice of materials, soft landscaping, green roof terraces and rainwater collection, as well as a centralised energy centre, natural ventilation and solar collection.

Bolton Council’s Deputy Leader Cllr Martyn Cox says: “These plans will create a destination which combine town centre living, retail and leisure in a top-quality environment. It means new homes, new jobs, and new businesses coming to Bolton. As the high street continues to face challenges, particularly from the coronavirus pandemic, this is a really significant development. “

Residential, Retail and Leisure facilities

Director of Bolton Regeneration Ltd. Steven Turner adds: “Today, our vision of a vibrant living, working and creative community at the heart of Bolton has taken a significant step forward. We believe this development will significantly improve the town centre offer, broaden its appeal, complement existing attractions and enhance the surrounding historic fabric. We look forward to commencing the next steps with the aim of starting construction next year.”

Chapman Taylor Main Board Director Tim Partington comments: “We are delighted to have passed this key milestone in the process of revitalising this strategically important site to create the basis for a lively, attractive and sustainable town centre. We look forward to working with Bolton Regeneration Ltd and Bolton Council to begin delivering this much-needed urban regeneration project in the coming months.”
