Scheme Oldhams Estate Active Neighbourhood

Active Neighbourhoods prioritise people & place creating spaces for play, chatting & safer streets for those travelling on foot or by bike.

Scheme description

Bolton’s plans focus on the Oldhams Estate in Astley Bridge, where rat-running has previously been identified as an issue for residents. 

Residents are being asked to feedback what they like about their area, but also how it could be made better - and whether they would like to stop through traffic using their streets as a short-cut.

This scheme is part of a GM-wide project to deliver an Active Neighbourhood in every borough, overseen by TfGM, Arup and Sustrans.
