Rochdale has one of the highest rates of empty business premises in the UK, Rochdale Online can reveal. Rochdale is sixth in a table of areas with the highest vacancy levels in the country with the percentage of properties lying empty rising from 16.1% to 21.3%, with 1,394 vacant units. There appears to have been a major decline in the past 12 months as it is understood Rochdale was not in the top 100 the previous year.
Mark Widdup, Rochdale Council Executive Director of Economy and Environment said: “Rochdale Council and Rochdale Development Agency are working hard with our partners in the public and private sector to encourage new businesses into the area.”
