Locals invited to have say on proposals for new Greenfield Primary School

LOCAL PEOPLE can have their say on proposals for a new two-form entry Greenfield Primary School at two consultation meetings.

Greenfield Primary School

Oldham Council is proposing to build a new school which will help meet the demand for primary school places in the Greenfield area.

They are now welcoming comments on the proposed development before an application is submitted for planning permission.

There will be two meetings on Wednesday, July 5 in the hall at the present school site on Shaw Street, Greenfield, OL3 7AA.

The first meeting for children, parents, staff and governors will be held from 3.30pm until 5pm, followed by a session for the public and interested parties from 6pm until 7.30pm.

Representatives from the school, Oldham Council and Unity Partnership will be on hand to answer any questions people may have. Attendees will also be able to view updated project drawings.

Councillor Amanda Chadderton, Oldham Council’s Cabinet Member for Education and Early Years, said: “This consultation is a chance for parents, residents and interested parties to have their say and help us shape the future of Greenfield Primary School.

“We’d urge you come along on the day as we want to hear your opinions as they are important and matter to us.”

Plans for a new Greenfield Primary were first submitted early in 2016 but were then put on hold as Oldham Council reviewed Saddleworth and Lees overall primary school places plan.

Some objections have been raised by nearby residents, including the increase of traffic to the school, and concerns over access via an unadopted, unsurfaced road.
