Local Plan consultation review

Oldham Council is preparing a new Local Plan for the borough. This will replace the existing Local Plan (the ‘Joint Core Strategy and Development Management Development Plan Document’), which was adopted November 2011.

Views were sought during summer 2017 on what people think the Local Plan should contain and what are the key planning issues for Oldham.

There will be further stages of consultaion as the review of the Local Plan progresses.

Greater Manchester Spatial Framework

We are working with the nine other local authorities in Greater Manchester to develop a new spatial framework. 

Data Protection

Details of our core data protection and commitments are set out in the council's primary privacy notice and service privacy notice for Strategic Planning and Information are both available on the council's data protection web pages.

Join our mailing list

The Local Plan helps to guide and manage future growth and development so we can meet the needs of the borough and its population. It contains planning policies that will be used as the basis for determining planning applications and identifies sites where developments should be built, as well as areas for protection.  If you would like to be kept informed, please join the Local Plan mailing list hosted by Objective consultation portal.
