Mill regeneration wins award
The highly successful regeneration of Reddish's Houldsworth Mill has earned Stockport Council recognition from the British Urban Regeneration Association. The council has recieved the Award for Best Practice in Regeneration.
Work on the 19th century mill - a grade II* listed building - started in 1996 and created 35,000sq m of floor space. Formally opened by Prince Charles in 2003, the former cotton mill has been transformed into a mixed-use premise - containing flats, college, offices and health club.
