Demolition of Crossbank and Summervale tower blocks approved


07/10/2020

We're pleased to announce that our plans to demolish Crossbank House and Summervale House tower blocks have been approved by Oldham Council. This is the first important step in our ambitious West Vale redevelopment project in the heart of Oldham.

We want to bring around 90 high quality, affordable new homes to the area and create a vibrant neighbourhood where people, families and businesses can thrive – find out more about our vision for West Vale in the development section of our website.

The demolition and clearance of the buildings in Coldhurst is anticipated to take place February – August 2021, and throughout this period we’ll keep local people updated on our progress.

What's next?

Following a tendering process, we will soon be appointing a specialist demolition contractor with experience and expertise in projects of this scale. We'll also continue to work with people in Oldham to help shape our plans for the new build development, before we submit our planning application to Oldham Council.

Get involved

Working with local people and understanding their views is central to the success of the West Vale redevelopment.

We want you to share feedback and ideas before and during the site redevelopment.

We will be engaging with local people about our plans in various ways in the months ahead. If you would like to get involved, please get in touch with us at westvale@fcho.co.uk.

Adding social value

Supporting the local economy and community is important to us and we want to create opportunities for local people and businesses through our work.

Suppliers which are keen to work with us on the West Vale redevelopment are encouraged to look out for opportunities advertised on our website and through our social media channels.
