A trio of iconic buildings at the heart of the Wigan Pier complex are being given their best chance of a reboot in a long time. Wigan Council has unveiled a six-week tender period for bids to be made to redevelop the edifices, which have stood idle for many years, as part of the council’s flagship regeneration project. There has been significant interest from developers in the buildings, which flank the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, in the year which marks the 80th anniversary of George Orwell’s landmark book The Road to Wigan Pier. The erstwhile industrial premises comprise The Warehouse, known locally as the former Way We Were Museum, the one-time Orwell public house, and the Education Centre. They are central to the Wigan Pier Quarter regeneration area and have attracted interest from across the region as a destination for investment and new industries

Plans to breathe life in Wigan’s Pier Quarter are edging closer after the council received a number of “excellent” offers from developers during the bidding process. The regeneration of the pier buildings has attracted interest from “major developers” causing the town hall to extend the original bidding deadline by six weeks. Concerns recently raised about the future of Trencherfield Mill, which houses Wigan’s only working steam engine, were quickly quashed by the council earlier this month who said there are “no plans” to close the engine room in the near future. Coun David Molyneux, Wigan Council’s cabinet member for regeneration, said: “We have received some excellent and varied bids from developers to breathe new life into the iconic Wigan Pier buildings. “Many of the developers have experience in regenerating buildings of this kind both regionally and nationally.“Now the crucial work begins to decide which of the bids should be taken forward.

The Victorian Quarter will soon have a new bus station.


So it's the other HALF of the town that you need to worry about.
