A Neighbourhood Plan helps to shape what happens in an area for years to come. This plan will help to shape what happens in the Parish of Saddleworth over the next twenty years. These policies sit alongside those in other strategic planning policies, including the National Planning Policy Framework, Places for Everyone, the Peak District National Park Development Plan, and the Oldham Borough Local Plan.

The Neighbourhood Plan will be reviewed every five years and covers a period to 2044.

The designated area agreed with Oldham Council and the Peak District National Park is the land within the boundary of the Parish of Saddleworth.

Neighbourhood Planning gives residents the power to develop a vision for their neighbourhood and shape the development and growth of their locality. This plan allows them to have their say on what new homes, shops, offices and community facilities should look like, what infrastructure should be provided, and ensuring the highest possible quality of development.

Neighbourhood Planning gives a powerful set of tools for local people to use to ensure that they get the right sort of development for their neighbourhood and where the ambition of the residents is in line with the needs and priorities of the wider area.

Consultees on the plan were:

  • The residents of the Parish of Saddleworth, the Community and Residents' Associations, the children of local schools, Oldham Council and the Peak District National Park Authority.
  • The Police, Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, Churches of all faiths and denominations, local businesses and business groups and historical societies were also consulted.
