Update on Holcombe Mill Site, Bridge Street

At the recent Council meeting at Bury Town Hall, I asked the Leader of the Council to update Ramsbottom Councillors regarding the Council’s consultations with the owners of the former Mondi Paper Mill site on Bridge Street, Ramsbottom in terms of the potential future development of the land.

I was advised that there has been no formal approach to the Council in relation to the redevelopment of this site since April 2013.

You will recall my update where I advised that the land owner sought views on the redevelopment of the site for a mixed use (housing and industrial) scheme.

(Pre-planning application proposals are confidential and therefore the details of theproposals are commercially sensitive and cannot be released).

However, it is understood that the site is once more on the market.
