Hodder's Wigan redevelopment plans approved

  • Comment

Wigan Borough Council has approved a Hodder + Partners’ £200 million scheme to redevelop the town centre

The project, which is backed by Maryland Securities, will transform a 15-acre site in Eckersley, around Wigan pier.

The work will include the creation of a new mixed-use urban village containing 300 homes, commercial and cultural facilities, a new hotel, cafés and restaurants.

Maryland, which is based in Cheadle, said the 92,903m² site would maintain and respect the heritage of the Eckersley Mills area.

The Prince’s Regeneration Trust and CABE supported the plans, which took three years’ worth of consultation with the local council.

Maryland managing director Jacob Jebreel said the firm was delighted to receive the planning approval and support from a wide range of groups.

He said the project would have significant economic benefits for Wigan and the surrounding region.
