As we push for more brownfield developments, creating communities around areas like train stations seems like a no-brainer. Using the Rochdale Rail Corridor as a jumping-off point, Broadway Malyan’s Danny Crump and Rochdale Council’s cabinet member for economy Cllr John Blundell give a crash course on maximising the potential of these transport infrastructure hotspots.

Questions asked in this podcast:

  • Why should we be looking at transit areas for development?
  • What are the challenges facing developing in these areas?
  • What are the best ways to develop around transport infrastructure?
  • How is Rochdale, in particular, tackling these kinds of developments?
