Masterplan

Oldham Mumps by MBLA Architects + Urbanists

The eastern extension of metrolink through the Mumps area of Oldham will be a significant improvement in the infrastructure of the town. MBLA were part of the team commissioned to identify the potential effects of this development on the eastern edge of the town centre. The proposal to create a new  extension to the town  from the Parish Church to beyond the existing railway viaducts was centered on a new green spine, whose southern and northern edges were developed with a mix of residential, commercial and leisure uses. To the southern edge of the plan new light industry and commercial buildings were developed in a linear manner adjacent to the new metrolink route through the town. The proposals took great advantage of the topography of the area to provide excellent orientation and vistas from all the new developments either across the green spine or beyond to the Pennines.
