Two large student 'villages' to be built in Bolton town centre

The Bolton News: The University of Bolton The University of Bolton

TWO “villages” for up to 1,000 students could be developed in the town centre, The Bolton News can reveal.

The University of Bolton is in talks with Bolton Council to identify a suitable site for the two halls of residence to add to the growing amount of student accommodation available in the town centre.

There are a number of potential locations being considered, including land behind Le Mans Crescent.

Leaders at the University of Bolton say the plans would “enhance” the town centre.

They have been working with the council over the multi-million pound project for about six months and a feasibility study is being carried out to see if the idea is financially viable.

The council says the two villages would provide facilities for students — and encourage them to use the town centre.

A council spokesman said: “We are working with the University of Bolton to look at the options for an academic village in the town centre.

“Talks are at an early stage, and we are examining the feasibility and deliverability of such a scheme with the university and other partners.”

Cllr Nick Peel, cabinet member for environmental services, said student accommodation formed part of plans for the town centre.

And the plans — together with those for two cinemas and the refurbishment of the market — would attract more visitors to Bolton.

Cllr Peel said: “We have been looking at ways in which to increase the diversity of those using the town centre and more student accommodation in the town centre is part of that strategy.

“Students are more likely to spend money locally and that means there will be more money being spent on entertainment in the town centre.

“Students will add to the atmosphere to the town centre and I think with the different groups of people using the town centre and with the market, Market Place and Crompton Place Shopping Centre, which bring people into the town, more businesses will be attracted to Bolton.”

The University of Bolton currently has two halls of residence — Orlando Village and The Hollins — providing a total 700 bedrooms.

It is not clear whether they would remain as part of the potential new development.

The Pack Horse Hotel in the town centre was converted into student flats equipped with en-suite bedrooms and televisions, a gym and a common room complete with leather sofas, table tennis and football tables, and a big-screen video projector.

And the £9 million new Cube building will have 216 rooms and is marketed as delivering luxury living.

Work is expected to be completed by summer, with the first wave of new tenants set to arrive in September.

No details have been released on how the two new “student villages” would compare to the private flats.

A spokesman for the University of Bolton added: “We are looking at options for two new student villages which would enhance the town centre. Discussions are at early stages.”

'Students will add to the atmosphere of the town centre' really, have you seen the amount of discarded take away cartons, vomit, empty beer cans and bottles that are strewn over the pavement of Thynne Street outside the students Orlando Village? Its a disgrace, and supermarket trollies just abandoned near the entrance to the village, it this the 'atmosphere' our already broken town centre needs? The students need to clean up their act.

This will be a fantastic boost for Bolton and the Town Centre if it comes off. The Student economy really is under-exploited in Bolton and with over a thousand more of them based in the Town Centre there would be real opportunity for growth, especially in the leisure industry. With any luck the abomination that is Bradshawgate and its surrounds will be left to the thugs and a new vibrant area will grow where decent people can enjoy an evening out without the fear of attack or molestation.

The Pack Horse and The Cube will already provide virtually 1000 bedrooms. Add to this the new accommodation at the former George Howcroft pubs and it is clear that there is already more accommodation than the number of students from out of town studying at the University, the majority of the students there being local and/or part-timers. Therefore, the question must be asked:who are these new addition rooms and indeed all those provided by refurbishment of older buildings, actually going to accommodate?
A new Housing Benefit fiddle??

I am trying to be positive on this, as for a site, then the old Kay's foundry on Moor Lane facing the bus station has been left empty for some years and could compliment the apartments that have been built on its Spar Road side.

If it does go ahead for that area, then a good buy would be the empty Gypsies Tent pub and make it a viable business again.

I've been out around Oxford Road in Manchester up near the Uni. Have attended concerts, had meals and visited all the pubs - had a great night out with my wife and friends.

Am I presume that when certain people on here read "students" they are conflating that word with "Africans"? Apart from the obvious racism, if that is so, there are plenty of, ahem, British people who would come and study in the town if it wasn't such a depressing s-hole.
If you people really value your town then you should welcome the massive boost to the local economy that these students would bring.

Its new shopping the town needs before student accommodation, cinemas and more eateries.

Student villages wont bring people back from their shopping experience in Bury, Wigan and Manchester.

If anything it I one factors of bringing people into the town to spend money and CREATE jobs, rather than having people sponging off the state (like the thumb downer who reside on here). It will also mean more choice and a new shops, new entertainment which then has a knock effect that more money will be spent in the ton thus ever increasing circles and not ever decreasing circles!!!

Funnily enough Somalia is not part of the EU and if they have the correct Visa's then what is wrong with them entering the country?

How many have actually come from Romania and Bulgaria, since the job restrictions were lifted - not as many as you and many other thought - in fact it is very few, which is what I and many people of my way of thinking actually suggested - as I said its all down to history between the countries and history between ourselves and Romania & Bulgaria has never been good!

As it is, if you really want to see the figures the citizens that over stay their welcome and become illegal are from countries you wouldn't expect. The top 5 are 1. Ghana, 2. Kenya, 3. Australia, 4. United States of America, 5. South Africa!!!

Do you not understand the place is overpopulated we cannot take many more , wherever they are coming from of any age.

How many have actually come from Romania and Bulgaria, since the job restrictions were lifted - not as many as you and many other thought - in fact it is very few, which is what I and many people of my way of thinking actually suggested - as I said its all down to history between the countries and history between ourselves and Romania & Bulgaria has never been good! As it is, if you really want to see the figures the citizens that over stay their welcome and become illegal are from countries you wouldn't expect. The top 5 are 1. Ghana, 2. Kenya, 3. Australia, 4. United States of America, 5. South Africa!!!

Thomas (or should I say GeorgeX/Jim271/etc), whoever I vote for is a private matter between me and the polling box, and both legally and under the Brtish Constitution I do not have to say, as it is a private matter - would you disclose how much your annual salary is, if you were asked?

Now remember it was the working man, under the Chartist movement, that wanted the secret ballot and now here YOU are trying to destroy a British institution by demanding who people vote for!!! Why are you trying to destroy a law that was demanded, and won, by the common voter?

In act everything that is wrong with our political system is actually down to the Chartist movement and the working class man....


Chartism was a working-class movement for political reform in Britain between 1838 and 1848 which took its name from the People's Charter of 1838. The term "Chartism" is the umbrella name for numerous loosely coordinated local groups, often called "Working Men's Association", which peaked in 1839, 1842 and 1848. It began among skilled artisans in small shops, such as shoemakers, printers, and tailors, and handloom workers in Lancashire and the Midlands as a petition movement which tried to mobilise "moral force" but soon attracted men who advocated strikes, general strikes and physical violence, such as Feargus O'Connor, known as "physical force" Chartists.

The People's Charter called for six basic reforms to make the political system more democratic:
1.Every man over 21 who is not a criminal or insane should be allowed to vote.
2.Voting should be done in secret.
3.Candidates should not need to be rich or own property to become a Member of Parliament.
4.All Members of Parliament should be paid for doing their job.
5.All electoral areas should represent the same number of people.
6.Elections should be held annually.

Chartism was a continuation of the 18th century fight against corruption and for democracy in an industrial society


So really what we need is upheaval in the political system - the working class should basically lose their franchise and get politics back to a level playing field! Also if you have read what I have posted - strikes are part and parcel of being working class and yet many condemn them - another reason as to why the working class should lose the franchise!

Thomas (or should I say GeorgeX/Jim271/etc), whoever I vote for is a private matter between me and the polling box, and both legally and under the Brtish Constitution I do not have to say, as it is a private matter - would you disclose how much your annual salary is, if you were asked? Now remember it was the working man, under the Chartist movement, that wanted the secret ballot and now here YOU are trying to destroy a British institution by demanding who people vote for!!! Why are you trying to destroy a law that was demanded, and won, by the common voter?
I unlike you have the courage of my convictions ( UKIP) fully open to debate & sensible views. How can a person like yourself & others on here debate your corner if you don,t have one on display. You seem to just complain & moan about everything but have no ideas or thoughts yourselves about anything. Your fellow bores have also become boring & can only call what people believe in. You also bring up the UKIP name on reports that are nothing to do with a UKIP story & try to turn it racist. You are trying to inflame & stir up racism with your comments and need to be reported by the B N.
Thomas,

I have, in the past, actually congratulated you on your stance with regards to UKIP - although very misled (especially after seeing Nuttall's performance on Sunday Politics at the weekend!0

But to discuss anything one does NOT need to have allegiance with a political party and everyone has there own opinions which are valid enough, with the correct data and facts.

the problem is, Thomas, when you post something it is all very subjective and is NOT fact. even of the report about the coffee shop you are relying on what you think instead of facts - without actually knowing how much reliance there is behind the ratings and what the ratings actually mean. You see it by face value rather than between the lines and seeing the real truth and facts.

With regards to UKIP everything I have posted is factually correct - even to the point where I actually copy and pasted many of their policies which then you totally rubbished!!! How can you rubbish your on parties current policies? As with regards to the negative aspects of the party they are all well documented in various press sources not just in the UK but also from overseas!

It is not about telling people who they should vote for, which is what you do in a style, but its about presenting ALL information so that the many floating voters or non-opinionated can make a sensible decision from ALL evidence - in other words giving the whole picture rather than just a part of the picture.

I do the same with other parties, such as Labour and The Conservatives and LibDems, well no point with them as they have destroyed their on party!

From my point of view, I am on the outside of all the parties, and as such see every party from every point of view and as such can see the whole picture thus that what I strive to show here are the true facts and not just hear'say or subjective one-sided comments!

Not being critical of grammar as my keyboard skills can be poor, and I am partially dyslexic - but to be fair I only caught half the gist of what you tried to say - I even thought you were calling me by a name that isn't mine!

That is what I was getting at. I honestly don't care how people get their factually correct viewpoint across, but I do care about correct facts rather than subjective points of view!

Things are looking up!
why would I go into Bolton? Bolton is trying to much to be like other big university cities, what the council is forgetting, is that such a city exist only 10 minutes away, Manchester. So it will not really be much of a boost, why keep going to the odd few bars along bridge street, Bolton, when I have a whole city to choose from 10 minutes away. I should know, it's what I and many of my friends do.

I don't really see what the problem is with building more student accommodation in town, economically it makes sense.
As more and more people from outside the town are deciding to study at our University, it would be a much wiser and safer option to provide halls of residence for them.
Sure, there are houses available for student letting but speaking from experience, and after my share of dodgy landlords, I'd choose halls of residence over private letting any day.

But the comment I made regarding University being used as a back door for illegal immigrants has been removed.

University of Bolton openly supported Eden College when its status as an Student Visa testing centre was suspended due to allegations of cheating.

The same college which featured on Panarama few days ago.

But it appears U of B now have a vested stake in Bolton News.

To e fair, it wasn't only University of Bolton but quite a few of the Northern Universities supported Eden College.

Also you would be surprised as to who has a vested interest in Newsquest Newspapers a I bet even your private, company, and state, pensions have an stake in the company!!!
