Designated Thornham St. John’s  Neighbourhood Forum and Area

Residents in Thornham St. John’s made an application to the council to designate a Neighbourhood Planning Forum and Neighbourhood Area in Rochdale. The Council publicised the proposals until 6 May 2019 and received a significant number of representations which supported the Neighbourhood Area and Forum. On 13 June 2019 formally designated the Neighbourhood Planning Forum. The details of the Thornham St. John’s Neighbourhood Planning Forum and Area are available in the documents below.

No other organisation or body may now be designated for that neighbourhood area until that designation expires (On 13 June 2024) or is withdrawn.

View the Thornham St. John’s Neighbourhood Planning Forum website where you can track progress with the Neighbourhood Plan.
