The council’s consultation on plans to develop parts of Littleborough has been extended – and the local authority will also be holding another drop-in event for the public.
The draft Littleborough station area Supplementary Planning Document seeks to ‘improve’ the area, particularly around key sites like the railway station, while ‘retaining Littleborough’s distinctive character’ and ‘village feel.’
The proposals include the redevelopment of brownfield land for a small number of new homes and the refurbishment of the railway arches and disused buildings for new commercial uses.
The document also suggests demolishing the ‘low quality existing buildings’ on Victoria Street and replacing them with new commercial units.
These units are currently occupied by small businesses including Hooson and Stuttard Opticians and Littleborough Podiatry.
The consultation will now run until midnight on Monday 6 December: share your views here.
A public drop-in session will be held at Littleborough Coach House on Friday 26 November from 10.30am to 1pm, so people can find out more and speak to officers about the proposals.
Paper copies of the draft Littleborough Station Area SPD are available for the public to view at:
- Littleborough Library, Hare Hill Road, Littleborough, OL15 9HE
- Number One Riverside, Smith Street, Rochdale, OL16 1XU
