We are consulting on our plans to transform the area of Oldham covering Vale Drive and West Street as part of our redevelopment project for the tower blocks.
In October 2018, we announced plans to demolish the two aging tower blocks at Crossbank House and Summervale House along with the bungalows at Flemming Place as they no longer met the needs and aspirations of our customers.
This will enable us to replace them with new homes that will better meet the needs of the local Oldham community.
The properties in the blocks are now nearly empty, and the demolition is expected to take place during 2020/21.
We are really keen to listen to your views and understand any questions and concerns you may have about the demolition process and the redevelopment of the site.
If you live or work locally, or you’d just like to find out more, we’re planning a series of consultation events where you can share your views about plans to transform this key gateway into Oldham. You can fill in our survey:Survey

We held our first consultation event at Richmond Academy on Tuesday 17 December 2019. We will be producing an update based on the consultation shortly. Some photos from the event are below.
