Cheadle Square is situated within Cultural Quarter, the historic heart of Bolton and is a magnet for visitors thanks to its grand civic architecture and cultural attractions. Cheadle Square will complement the area’s many assets to create a vibrant destination. Set in the centre of the town centre Cheadle Square includes the former Bus Station, and some of Bolton’s architectural gems showcasing Le Mans Crescent, Bolton Town Hall and Bolton Museum.

Le Mans Cresent

Progress to Date

Cheadle Square will combine high-end residential and commercial developments adding to the significant investment that has already been made to the Octagon Theatre and creation of the internationally significant Egyptology Gallery at Bolton Museum.

Planning has been approved for developer Midia to convert the grade two listed former magistrates court into a boutique, 87-bedroom hotel and 17 serviced apartments. The hotel alone will bring around 100 new jobs to Bolton.

In September 2019, Bolton was named as one of a 101 places in the UK to share in the £3.6 billion Towns Fund, which aims to ‘support towns to build prosperous future’s’. 42 places across the Northern Powerhouse are among the pioneers of new ‘Town Deals’, which aim to boost towns through improving transport, broadband connectivity and providing social and cultural infrastructure.

Bolton is one of only four towns in Greater Manchester set to potentially benefit from up to £25 million and develop a Town Deal. The priorities for investment will be concentrated in Cheadle Square.

Development Highlights

“Le Mans Crescent is a wonderfully atmospheric location full of grace and elegance which people are often surprised about when they first visit."

“We are very pleased to have the opportunity and responsibility to lead this sensitive redevelopment which will bring a new dynamic to the town centre and put the building to a new, appropriate use.”

Alec Colbeck, Development Director at Midia.
