Oldham Council Planning Meeting

Meeting 1st July 2019 (For Development)

Meeting 14th November 2018 (Against Development)


This is a website is for people who are opposed to the destruction of Thornley Brook Valley & Ashbrook Valley.

It is being proposed by Russell Homes to forward outline plans for up to 265 new homes & a new link road between Lees New Road/Knowls Lane & Ashbrook Road/Oldham Road.


This development will have an negative impact on noise & air pollution, the abundant wildlife and the loss of a precious area for recreation for local people in Lees, Springhead & Grotton. Land that is at the moment OPAL (Other Protected Open Land) will loose its protected status & will no longer be natural open land.
