Work has officially started on Phase 1 of the multi-million pound ‘VisionTameside’ development in Ashton.


STATE-OF-THE-ART: How the new Advanced Learning Centre will look.

The new Advanced Learning Centre will provide state-of-the-art Sixth Form facilities and Digital and Performing Arts facilities in the centre of the town.

Phase 1 will also see the development of a new Advanced Technology Centre, at Tameside College’s Beaufort Road campus.

The centre will provide cutting edge learning facilities to support the growth of advanced engineering in Tameside.

Councillor Kieran Quinn, executive leader at Tameside Council said: “This new development is expected to bring further economic prosperity as 3,000 students and staff relocate into Ashton town centre over the next three years. Everyone at the council is looking forward to watching the new buildings go up over the next 12 months.”
