Former St Paul’s Church, Shaw Town Centre

Local Shaw and Crompton councillors are aware of the works currently taking place at the former St Paul’s Methodist Church, on Rochdale Road, Shaw. These works are part of the previously approved demolition consent granted in 2019.

“As part of ensuring that these works are carried out in line with the planning consent, we have asked Oldham Council’s Planning Enforcement to monitor the works and ensure that they are taking place lawfully and appropriately,” stated councillor Chris Gloster.

Council enforcement officers visited the site last week and sought assistances from the owners that they were complying with the requirements of the planning consent and are monitoring the site clearance along with maintaining a visual record of works taking place.

“These are the facts of the matter as we know them,” added councillor Gloster. “Lots of other things are being suggested which are just not true as some people try to make mischief in the community.”
