Improvements to depot area of Alexandra Park


The Cabinet gave consideration to a report of the Principal Regeneration Officer which sought approval for funding for the Alexandra Park Depot Site Project.


The report presented a summary of the detailed work carried out to date in bringing forward the Alexandra Park Depot Site Project to ensure effective service delivery and support the Council’s ambition to make Oldham a green and growing place. This investment, and the delivery of an eco-centre, marked the first step for Oldham’s innovative Northern Roots project which would work with local communities to investigate ways that Oldham could celebrate, protect and enhance its green spaces for the benefit of local people, the local economy and the planet.


Northern Roots would initially focus on the 160-acre Snipe Clough site adjacent to Alexandra Park and would investigate ways to enhance the sustainability and biodiversity of the site, to offer even greater opportunities for recreation and leisure for local people, and to use the space for growing and green enterprise projects.


The report made recommendations for capital funding for the project.


RESOLVED - That the Cabinet would consider the commercially sensitive information contained at Item 12 of the agenda.
