New application for Knowls Lane (Save Our Valleys)

by samalhamdani on 3 August, 2020

The application to update the Knowls Lane planning permission has returned to the Oldham planning portal – at a very odd time.

Despite the judicial review on the initial application having been heard, but not yet reported, developers Russell Homes have decided to go ahead with their updated application.

It should be noted that with the updated application, the Ancient Woodland status that local resident Jane Barker has worked so hard to attain, now becomes part of the consideration of the application.

Residents have until August 18 to respond to the new application – go to the planning portal ( and search for Knowls Lane, or MMA/344723/20.
