Local Plan Review

Oldham Council is seeking the views of residents as we prepare a new Local Plan. This will replace the existing Local Plan (the ‘Joint Core Strategy and Development Management Development Plan Document’), which was adopted November 2011.

We are seeking views, from 10 July until 21 August 2017. Consultation on the plan will follow this initial work which at this stage is seeking views about what people think the Local Plan should contain and what are the key planning issues for Oldham.

The consultation has now closed

Greater Manchester Spatial Framework

We are working with the nine other local authorities in Greater Manchester to develop a new spatial framework and the latest stage of work has just been published for consultation.

The consultation has now closed.
