The Bolton Council in the UK has granted planning permission for the £250m redevelopment of Crompton Place Shopping Centre.

The town centre site will be transformed into a mixed-use scheme, which is located at the heart of Bolton Council’s £1.5bn town centre masterplan.

The Crompton Place Shopping Centre redevelopment is proposed by Bolton Regeneration, a partnership between Beijing Construction Engineering Group International (BCEGI) and Midia Group a regeneration specialist.

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

Bolton Council deputy leader 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.

“Now that approval has been granted, we look forward to working with Bolton Regeneration Ltd to progress the plans, and we will continue to keep the businesses in the centre updated as things progress.”

The project will feature soft landscaping, green roof terraces and rainwater collection in addition to a centralised energy centre, natural ventilation and solar collection.

Construction on the mixed-use scheme is scheduled to commence in 2021.

Bolton Regeneration director Steven Turner said: “We believe this development will significantly improve the town centre offer, broaden its appeal, complement existing attractions, and enhance the surrounding historic fabric.”
