£50m Development Plans for Farnworth Market Precinct
Bolton Council has also agreed a deal with social impact developer CAPITAL&CENTRIC and outline planning permission to redevelop the former market precinct in Farnworth town centre has been approved.
The stars of BBC2 documentary Manctopia have been consulting on its outline vision throughout the year and are planning to deliver 12 family homes which will sit alongside 82 apartments, as well as 2,200 sq m of new retail, commercial and communal space.
A new linear park is planned, providing a landscaped green hang out space for all local residents to enjoy alongside. A flexible indoor space for community uses will sit alongside spaces for local businesses to locate such as café bars and indie retailers. The developer is also planning a community pavilion which will be available to hire for events and is looking to create a bustling new public square which could become a new central destination for Farnworth to host artisan markets, live events, art galleries and pop-ups for foodies.
