Rochdale calls for feedback on revised development plan

Rochdale Borough Council has removed controversial green belt development plans from its 15 year development plan and is now calling for resident views on the revised scheme.

The council’s original “Core Strategy” was rejected by government last year following a dispute over redeveloping green belt land in South Heywood. The new proposals have ruled out these plans, as well being updated to reflect the recently published National Planning Policy Framework.

Public consultation has begun on the revised “Core Strategy”, which sets out the council’s plan on how the borough should grow and develop up until 2028. It shows the scale of employment and housing needed as well as identifying where regeneration, environment and transport services should be targeted.

Residents have up until 10 September to respond to the council plans.
