Welcome

Welcome to the Rooley Moor Neighbourhood Forum website.

We created our forum because we share a common purpose and objective to protect and enhance our neighbourhood and to make it an area that is vibrant, socially inclusive, and generally the greenest, safest place to live, work and play that it can possibly be.

Forum members are individuals who either live, work, regularly pursue leisure activities (walking, horse riding, cycling, ornithology, fishing, etc.) or are interested in the Rooley Moor area. Members of the forum are all connected to the daily life of the neighbourhood and we know that sometimes the smallest of changes can make a big difference.

If you support our aim then please do join us and tell us what you think to help make the Rooley Moor neighbourhood the best possible place it can be.

There’s no fee, no commitment and no onus on you to do anything. All we ask is that you share our vision of making Rooley Moor neighbourhood a great place to live, work and play!

Our Neighbourhood Plan

Our Neighbourhood Development Plan has been submitted to Rochdale Council for consideration

The Plan was on the agenda for the Rochdale Township Meeting on the 23rd January 2019 and the Township Committee approved having the Local Planning Authority publicise the Plan for another six weeks and arranging an independent examination.

What happens next?

A public consultation is now open for comment and runs for a six week period from Friday 8th February to Friday 22nd March 2019.

The complete Neighbourhood Development Plan, Screening Report for Environmental Assessment, Basic Conditions Statement and other supporting documents are available to view on the Council’s website: https://consultations.rochdale.gov.uk/ and for inspection at Rochdale Central Library and Spotland Library.

A comments form is available which provides the opportunity to respond to the consultation.

Following the consultation process on the Neighbourhood Development Plan, the Plan will be forwarded to an Independent Examiner whose role it is to recommend amendments and whether or not the Rooley Moor Neighbourhood Development Plan should proceed to referendum, if 50% or more of those who vote in the referendum support the Plan it can be declared ‘Made’ by Rochdale Council and used to determine planning applications in the Rooley Moor Neighbourhood Area.

Please ensure that your comments reach Rochdale Council by 5pm Friday, 22ndMarch 2019 whether by post or email.
