Langtree submits 192,000 sq ft Oldham industrial plans 

The main phase of the £40m Hollinwood Junction project has taken a step forward after the developer lodged a planning application for 13 units off Junction 22 of the M60. 

Oldham Council appointed Langtree to deliver the Hollinwood Junction scheme in 2007. So far, remediation of the site and a Costa Coffee drive-thru have been delivered.  

The 190,000 sq ft industrial proposals form the main chunk of the development. 

The wider development, being delivered in partnership with the council, is also expected to incorporate retail, leisure, and up to 150 family homes.   

“Our ambition is to provide a variety of modern employment spaces that will provide room for local employers to expand and help attract new occupiers keen to benefit from the site’s location and the town’s skilled workforce,” said Josh Downes, senior development manager at Langtree. 

The developer is targeting a BREEAM ‘excellent’ rating and will utilise translucent fascia materials throughout the scheme to allow for maximum natural light within each unit. The proposals also include extensive landscaping, according to Langtree. 

The units will be accessed by the recently constructed roundabout on Albert Street, which services the Costa drive-thru. 

The site was previously occupied by a gas holder, demolished in 2020. 

Cllr Arooj Shah, Leader of Oldham Council, said: “Hollinwood Junction is a really exciting project and once it’s all finished it will be a great place for young people and families to thrive, and improve opportunities for Oldhamers.  

“This is another significant milestone in making our borough an even better place to live, work and raise a family – and it is brilliant that Hollinwood Junction is transforming the old gasworks into a space where Oldhamers can be proud to live and work.”  

Spawforths is the planning consultancy advising on the application, with the scheme being designed by Fletcher Rae.
