A digital public consultation on plans for the second phase of the Rochdale Riverside development - renovating the brownfield site on Penn Street Rochdale - is being held until Sunday 14 February.
The detailed application includes proposals for 238 apartments, a 146-bedroom hotel and new offices on land adjacent to the Rochdale Riverside shopping and leisure complex. The new homes would offer ‘city centre’ style living at ‘affordable rents’.
The development is adjacent to the Rochdale Riverside complex and includes the site where Baillie Street health centre stood and the former site of the Pentagon Vauxhall dealership alongside John Street.
The project, part of the £400m regeneration of Rochdale town centre, is being delivered by Rochdale Development Agency on behalf of Rochdale Borough Council, in partnership with Genr8 Developments and Kajima.
The planning application was submitted in December 2020.
Genr8 says: "All comments will be shared with Rochdale Borough Council to assist it in reaching a decision on the planning application later in Spring 2021."
Due to current restrictions put in place by the government to safeguard against Covid-19, the consultation will take place digitally.
You can share your views via the feedback section of the consultation after reviewing the plans.
