Meadow Lane plan views sought

Date Released - 30/03/2017

TAMESIDE Council is seeking the views of residents and businesses about a draft supplementary planning document (SPD) it has prepared for the area of Haughton Green around Meadow Lane.

Policies contained in the draft will assist developers and residents to design high-quality schemes, and will help the council make consistent decisions when assessing planning applications.

Cllr John Taylor, who leads on planning matters for Tameside Council, said: “We need people’s views because the SPD once adopted will help to guide future development for the area.

“Our intention is to create a better place to live and work. We need to be sure the planning guidance we take forward respects and enhances the character of the area covered by the draft SPD around Meadow Lane and helps to sustain an attractive and vibrant community.”

Comments on the draft SPD and its supporting material should be made during the six-week consultation period running to Monday, May 8.

 All the relevant documents can be found at

In addition, copies of the draft SPD and its supporting material are available at libraries, and the customer service centre and planning department at Clarence Arcade, Stamford Street, Ashton.

Comments should be made in writing, including the name and address of the respondent, and e-mailed to or posted to Planning Policy, Tameside Council, Clarence Arcade, Stamford Street, Ashton.

All comments will be held by the council and will be available to view publicly. They cannot be treated as confidential. Your personal information such as your postal and e-mail address will not be published, but your name and organisation (if relevant) will.
