Speculation of housing development in Slattocks

Rumours abound that developers are taking a closer look at land in the Slattocks.

SOS-Save Our Slattocks understands that until the next draft of the GMSF is published [expected June 2018], then the developers via their agents are just ‘testing the water’.

The questions that residents are asking are:

  • Are local landowners willing to sell?
  • Has Rochdale Council been approached for approval?
  • Is there a need for large-scale development in the area?

SOS-Save Our Slattocks believes that only very limited development is right for Slattocks & Stakehill.

We want the greenbelt and open space where we live to be enjoyed by residents and visitors for many years ahead and not become more clogged up and built up in the name of progress.

We’ll keep our ears to the ground and let you know when we have more information.

Until then, tell us what you think at our Facebook group “Slattocks Greenbelt”
