Rochdale Riverside retail and leisure development to go ahead
Rochdale Riverside retail and leisure development is to go ahead after councillors vowed to press on at a special meeting held on Thursday night (4 January).
The Council Cabinet had been asked to consider the future direction of the scheme, following Marks and Spencer pulling out of the development.
Councillors choose option one of four options considered:
1. Proceed as planned and start building.
2. Delay the decision on whether to proceed with the scheme until the M&S issue is fully resolved.
3. Delay the decision until an alternative occupier is agreed.
4. Abandon the scheme altogether.
