Rochdale town centre is undergoing a £250 million regeneration programme, which has transformed the area since it started back in 2011.
As part of this redevelopment, the old 1970s council offices and bus station have been demolished, to clear the way for a new shopping and leisure centre, boasting 24 shops, restaurants and a cinema, which is due to open in 2019. Work on the site, which is currently a temporary car park, will start work in autumn 2017 and you can watch progress through the webcam below.
The webcam is currently in place overlooking the area for the proposed Rochdale Riverside development - a new 200,000 sq.ft retail and leisure centre. The image below should update every 10 minutes (press F5 on your keyboard to refresh the webcam).
