This evening (Wednesday 12th July) a petition was delivered to the Rochdale Council regarding our proposals for College Bank in Rochdale town centre.
We understand that some people have concerns about the proposals and potential redevelopment. There is also a significant number of residents who are pushing for change and a wider choice of affordable, high –quality homes in Rochdale Town Centre.
These proposals are still in the early stages, so we will be continuing to consult widely on the potential improvements and investment. With the input of the local community, we want to create sustainable neighbourhoods that best meet the needs of both current and future residents, and improve people’s homes and quality of life.
As part of this process, we are going to be talking individually to each of the 1,200 households in Lower Falinge and College Bank over the summer about what the plans may mean for them and to discuss any queries.
If anyone who has signed the petition would like to talk to us about their concerns before we visit them, then we would be happy to do so.
