Residents of Saddleworth and Lees have been asked to submit questions in advance of a public meeting about, ‘The Future for Saddleworth School’. The meeting will be held on Wednesday 16th October at 7.30 p.m. in Uppermill Civic Centre.
In addition to keynote speakers, namely OMBC Leader Jim McMahon, Executive Director for Children’s Services, Michael Jameson and Headteacher Matthew Milburn, other council representatives will also be present to address public questions, including Chief Executive, Charlie Parker, Director of Development and Infrastructure, Darren Jones and cabinet member for Education, Councillor Amanda Chadderton. Subject to her commitments at Westminster, Member of Parliament for Oldham East and Saddleworth, Debbie Abrahams, may also attend.
It is envisaged that the borough will present proposals for its preferred site for building the school on this occasion, widely thought to be the former pallet works at Diggle, a prospect which was openly discussed by residents at last week’s meeting organised by Saddleworth Parish Council. (See Saddleworth residents angry about the lack of consultation in relation to proposals for a new Saddleworth School )
To help ensure that all the key topics are covered during the evening, people are asked to submit questions in advance to email@example.com or by post to Saddleworth School Public Meeting Question, Lees Public Library, Thomas Street, Lees, Oldham 0L4 5DA. This will not exclude spontaneous discussion and response to the council’s proposals on the night, as an open forum will be also be included in proceedings.
