Today we’ve launched a brand new video, bringing our town centre transformation plans to life.

The fly-through film outlines what we plan to do and where – including the redevelopment of Spindles Town Square Shopping Centre, the creation of a brand-new town centre park and a dedicated cultural quarter with new theatre.

Cllr Arooj Shah, Oldham Council Leader and Cabinet Member for Economic and Social Reform, said: “We have lots of exciting plans for Oldham town centre but we know it can be difficult to visualise just how everything will come together.

“We have created this new video to put everything into perspective; to show you our major projects and how buildings and places could look in the future.

“Some of the changes will start to take shape really soon, including the redevelopment of Spindles, which will see building work start on site early next year.

“Please take a look at the video and see for yourself - there’s lots to look forward to!”

The footage, which was shot across the town centre using a drone, outlines the plans featured in our Big Oldham Conversation consultation website.

The website www.oldham.gov.uk/towncentre highlights all our major regeneration projects and invites the community to feedback.

Thousands of people have visited the website and told us what matters most to them.

We’ve also been holding community consultations to speak to you in person, with the next one taking place on Saturday 11 December in Spindles Spindles Town Square, from 11am-3pm.

Your feedback will help us to shape each project to ensure it meets the needs and wants of the community.
