Capital&Centric submits plans for 160-home Neighbourhood Bolton

Known for its restoration work, the developer’s first new-build project would see 160 homes constructed across four brownfield plots off Bradshawgate and Breightmet Street.

Capital&Centric acquired the 6.2 acres of land surrounding the town’s bus and train stations from Bolton Council in February for their redevelopment into homes.

Proposals submitted to the council form the first phase of Neighbourhood Bolton, a multi-plot community featuring one- to four-bedroom properties.

Approval would see the creation of Neighbourhood Trinity Gateway on one plot off Bradshawgate, as well as Neighbourhood Trinity Village across three plots off Breighmet Street.

Later phases would also see the introduction of workspaces.

Richard Spackman, development director of Capital&Centric, said: “We wanted to get the Neighbourhood concept spot on, with bold, contemporary homes, community amenities and workspaces set to totally change the feel of the area around Bolton’s train and bus stations.

“For us, this is all about taking the design-led approach you see in some of the exemplary city centre developments and bringing it to life in the suburbs…

“There’s places up and down the country that have these challenging brownfield sites in prime, town centre locations, crying out for a creative approach to regeneration”, he added. “We’re rising to that challenge here and delivering a neighbourhood with a sense of community, excellent sustainability credentials and a distinct design edge.”

The scheme is Capital&Centric’s second in Bolton. The developer is currently delivering a residential-led redevelopment of Farnworth town centre.

The Leader of Bolton Council, Cllr Nick Peel, said: “Pending approval, this scheme will provide a mix of sustainable urban homes and create a vibrant new neighbourhood in the heart of Bolton.

“Capital&Centric are leading developers with an outstanding reputation.

“They are already working to rejuvenate Farnworth and their involvement in this new project shows the confidence that they, and the industry as a whole, has in Bolton’s regeneration plans.”

As of publication, Capital&Centric’s planning applications for Neighbourhood Bolton had not appeared on the council’s planning portal.

Last week, the developer submitted plans for the office-led conversion of Neptune Mill in Manchester’s emerging Piccadilly East neighbourhood.

Bit of a transformation from commercial development to unit manufacturing and disposal that house building is. Good luck


Will be interesting to see which consultants they have used after numerous council events promising involvement of local firms in the towns regeneration.


another financial white elephant that will ultimately cost the council money

Trying to cram too many houses into one site, where’s the privacy?

Bolton is now a building site. The way forward for Bolton, is as a Manchester satellite with a grand town hall. The current plans are a start.

a wider plan for the town would serve better… with a sound financial delivery plan to back it up

The density seems very low for such central locations. Surely flats would be more appropriate.

Visiting Manchester after years of absence is truly eye opening. It’s becoming a proper metropolis. Some swanky hotels and very handsome parts of the city which I never even knew existed. Manchester was never known for a food scene but in a few years it going to a top F&B destination for sure.

Once more of the satellite towns get a taste of what the city is getting, you’re looking at a transformational city region, and I can’t wait!
