Residents are encouraged to comment on community proposals to designate a neighborhood area and neighborhood forum for Chadderton.
And resident group, The new Chadderton partnership, has submitted the application.
The proposed neighborhood area covers the three Chadderton departments – Chadderton North, Chadderton Central and Chadderton South.
If approved, a neighborhood area and forum designation will allow The New Chadderton Partnership start drawing up a neighborhood plan for the Chadderton neighborhood or Neighborhood Development Order for a specific part of the neighborhood area.
Neighborhood plans allow communities to gain more influence and control over their local area to ensure they get the right type of development for their neighborhood. However, they can not influence or block development that is previously stipulated in the local plan or any future local plans.
Cllr Hannah Roberts, Cabinet member for housing, said: “This is an opportunity to have your say and I urge anyone with an interest in the future development of Chadderton to see the proposals and submit feedback.”
The proposals include the applications, a map, a summary of the forum members and the group’s constitution and can be viewed online at www.oldham.gov.uk/info/200585/local_plan/1825/consultation
Alternatively, hard copies can be viewed at the Chadderton Library. You can also see them at the Civic Center’s Rochdale Road Reception by appointment. Call 0161 770 4105 to make an appointment.
The board invites comments on the applications from today (Monday, November 29) to Monday, January 10, 2022.
