New constituency office for Jim McMahon MP

Date published: 31 March 2021


Oldham West and Royton MP Jim McMahon has announced he moving offices, to a more accessible location. 

He is relocating from Textile House on Union Street, Oldham, to Chadderton Town Hall.

From Thursday 1st April the constituency correspondence address for Jim McMahon’s Office is: Office Of Jim McMahon MP, Chadderton Town Hall, Middleton Road, Chadderton, Oldham OL9 6PP.

Speaking about the move Jim said, “When the lease at Union Street came up for renewal, we decided to reassess our needs.

We decided we needed a constituency office that was more accessible once we begin meeting people again.”

“I'm delighted that we have managed to lease vacant space at Chadderton Town Hall, which allows for full disabled access with a lift, free visitor parking and is on a main bus route - something we lacked at Union Street.”

“We have the added benefit that we increase the use of an important public building and keeps the rent we pay in the public sector rather than paying a private landlord elsewhere in the town.

"Importantly the location is central to most parts of the constituency too.”

“My office supports thousands of constituents each year and whilst my staff are still working from home for the time-being we will continue to support residents remotely during the lockdown.

"There will be a post redirect in place for the foreseeable future to ensure any correspondence sent to Union Street reaches us at our new address.”

“I would like to thank the GMB for supporting me as a new MP setting up a new office and for accommodating me and my team over the years.”
