1. Towns Fund

Oldham is among 101 pioneer towns selected to develop a Town Deal in the region of £25 million. The towns have been chosen because they have a proud industrial and economic heritage but have not always benefitted from economic growth in the same way as more prosperous areas.

The funding will come from the Towns Fund, a £3.6 billion government initiative which was announced in September 2019.  The Oldham Town Deal Board has been formed to develop the bid for up to a maximum of £50 million to support regeneration projects in Oldham town centre.  You can view the areas able to benefit from the bid on the map below:
