Greater Manchester Local Plan

Oldham is a town in Greater Manchester, England, situated amidst the Pennines and known for its rich industrial heritage.

Oldham was one of the first towns to industrialize, becoming a major center for textile manufacturing, particularly cotton spinning and weaving. By the late 19th century, it was a global leader in cotton production. The decline of the cotton industry in the mid-20th century led to significant economic and social changes. Many mills and factories closed, prompting a shift towards other sectors.

Oldham’s Local Plan reflects a commitment to balancing economic growth, environmental sustainability, and social inclusion, ensuring that the town continues to thrive and evolve in the face of modern challenges and opportunities.
