The Council has secured funding from the Innovate UK Net Zero Living Pathfinder Places fund to develop an Oldham Green New Deal Delivery Partnership.

The Delivery Partnership will include key organisations from the private sector, the Oldham Partnership, the Greater Manchester Combined Authority and Electricity North West, and will focus on delivering the £5.6bn of low carbon infrastructure Oldham needs to get to Net Zero which is set out in Oldham’s Local Area Energy Plan, part of the Greater Manchester Local Energy Market project.

The Delivery Partnership aims to roll out the Community Led Energy Planning approach piloted in Westwood and Sholver under the Oldham Energy Futures project, to ensure that the low carbon transition in Oldham is community led and driven by the priorities of Oldham residents and businesses.
