About the GGRA

The Greenfield and Grasscroft Residents Association has existed for more than 25 years and has the following aims:

  • To serve the interests of our neighbourhood (i.e. Greenfield , Grasscroft, Friezland and Lydgate)
  • To raise awareness of local issues and increase participation in local democracy
  • To support our local environment and protect the greenbelt
  • To provide an effective voice for residents, defend their interests on public issues
  • To lobby Oldham Council and other bodies on behalf of residents

Our activities include:

  • A forum for advice and consultation
  • Representation on behalf of Greenfield and Grasscroft residents
  • Dissemination of news and information to local residents
  • Liaison with the Press
  • Attendance at public meetings

GGRA is affiliated to the Campaign for the Preservation of Rural England (CPRE) who provide advice and support on countryside and green-belt issues, e.g. planning, quiet Lanes, noise/light pollution and mobile phone masts.

Serving as a lobby group to represent the views of local people, GGRA is not affiliated to a political party.

Above all, GGRA serves to improve communication within our villages, helping to enhance our sense of community.
