Station Square

It was announced in February 2023 that Rochdale Council had submitted plans to transform the appearance of Rochdale railway station and the area in front of St John’s. There are ambitious proposals for the development of the area including relocating traffic from in-front of the station which, along with additional street furniture, will produce a calmer and more relaxed atmosphere in front of St John’s.

A significant part of the application is the heritage statement. This lengthy document has on its cover a picture of St John’s. As the only Grade ll* listed building in the area, a great deal of coverage is given to St John’s and ensuring that heritage is protected.
