Cllr Fielding has annoucned that Travelodge will be joining Lidl at the Prince’s Gate development at Oldham Mumps, reinvigorating the hotel offer in Oldham town centre and providing a boost for local businesses as a result of the expected increased footfall.
Cllr Fielding said: “This is another significant step forward in our plans to regenerate Oldham Mumps – and it’s fantastic to see another well-known national brand investing in our town.
“Having a hotel right next to a major Metrolink stop makes sound economic sense and it also fills an important gap in the current offer in Oldham town centre.
“It’s also good to see that work is progressing on upgrading the wider environment around Oldham Mumps and all this is part of our long-term vision to revitalise this eastern gateway. We will add real value to the local economy, create jobs and provide a range of quality new homes, retail and office space in the area.”
