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.
