Ebenezer Howard, founder of the garden city concept, had a vision of places where people could work, raise families, travel easily and enjoy green spaces, this will be renewed for the 21st century at Godley Green.

Tameside Council has submitted an outline planning application for Godley Green to unlock up to 2,150 new homes over the next 16 years.

The ambitious but achievable plan is to create a new sustainable garden settlement of beauty and great design that sensitively evolves around our existing communities and landscape.

Involving existing communities, stakeholders and young people in the development of Godley Green is extremely important to us. Your opinions, thoughts and ideas, have been critical in helping to shape the next stages of the Godley Green development.

Further opportunities to get involved will be provided through the planning process.
