Bolton Regeneration

A crucial part of the £1.5bn regeneration of Bolton town centre has been given the green-light – with the council granting developers planning permission.

The £250m mixed-use scheme will see Crompton Place Shopping Centre demolished and replaced with a thriving new district.

Brought forward by Bolton Regeneration Ltd – the JV between Beijing Construction Engineering Group International (BCEGI) and Midia Group – the scheme will deliver:

  • 110-bedroom hotel
  • 150 town centre homes
  • 10,500 sq ft of office office

  • Retail and food space
  • Bolton Works – a new events destination
  • Redesigned public realm

It’s a crucial part of the £1.5bn regeneration of Bolton which will be the focus of our Future Development Plans in Bolton Webinar – details of which can be found here: https://www.built-environment-networking.com/event/future-development-bolton/

Construction is likely to begin next year on the project, which was designed by Chapman Taylor.

Bolton Council Deputy Leader Cllr Martyn Cox said: “This is a major milestone for Crompton Place, which is a fundamental part of our £1.5bn town centre masterplan. 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.”

Steven Turner, Director of Bolton Regeneration, added: “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 commencing construction next year.”
