Demolition work is underway at the Borough Triangle development site in Hathershaw.
The area is a key project in the Fitton Hill and Hathershaw New Deal for Communities project area, between Ashton Road, Copster Hill Road and Schofield Street.
Developer Countryside Properties has drawn up plans to provide up to 300 contemporary homes, new shops and offices, with landscaped areas and open space.
The proposals have been commissioned by New Deal for Communities, Housing Market Renewal and Oldham Council.
Work to clear and remediate the site is expected to continue until January next year. Countryside's proposals will provide a mix of two, three, four and five-bedrooomed homes.
