Planning permission has been granted for the £250 million replacement of Crompton Place Shopping Centre, a development which lies at the heart of Bolton Council's £1.5 billion town centre master-plan.

The development includes a 110-bedroom hotel, 150 homes, 10,500 square metres of office space and a mixed-use retail, leisure, dining and events space, dubbed 'Bolton Works' designed to accommodate independent retailers and food operators as well as providing incubator space for small business and start-ups.

It will be integrated into the wider streetscape and urban fabric to help reunite Bradshawgate with Victoria Square and improve the access and pedestrian flows within the town centre.
