Tameside Metropolitan Borough Council (TMBC) is devising proposals for the redevelopment of the Tameside Administration Centre in Ashton-under-Lyne (centred on NGR 393865 399245). The current Administration Centre lies within the Ashton Town Centre Conservation Area and comprises two nineteenth-century buildings, which are both afforded statutory designation as Grade II listed buildings, and an eight-storey brick-built structure that was added to the site in the 1980s. It is oversized and in several respects inappropriate for the future needs of TMBC, which is proposing the replacement of the 1980s elements of the complex with a new building. This will inevitably necessitate considerable earth-moving works, with potential to impact on buried archaeological remains. In order to inform the design proposals, and acting on behalf of TMBC, Capita commissioned Oxford Archaeology North to undertake an archaeological assessment of the site.
