Welcome to the Thornham St John’sNeighbourhood Forum website.
We created our forum because we share a common purpose and objective to protect and enhance our neighbourhood and to make it an area that is vibrant, socially inclusive, and generally the greenest, safest place to live, work and play that it can possibly be.
Forum members are individuals who either live, work or regularly pursue leisure activities (walking, horse riding, cycling, ornithology, fishing, etc.) in the Slattocks/Stakehill and surrounding area. Members of the forum are all connected to the daily life of the neighbourhood and are keen that any changes in the area are beneficial to all.
If you support our aim then please dojoin us and tell us what you think to help make the Thornham St John’s neighbourhood the best possible place it can be.
There’s no fee, no commitment and no onus on you to do anything. All we ask is that you share our vision of making Thornham St John’s neighbourhood a great place to live, work and play!
Shocked resident heard of the extent of proposed Greenbelt loss in the revised GMSF on Saturday 2nd February 2019 at a meeting in Thornham Cricket Club.
Many were shocked to hear that the revised GMSF plan is still looking at taking a large area of local Greenbelt.
The local allocation [GM 2 Stakehill] if it goes ahead, will see the building of 900 new houses and an extra 250,000sq metres of industrial units swallowing up the fields around Chesham Estate, Slattocks and Stakehill. The area stretches across to Chadderton leaving a ‘corridor’ of Greenbelt between Thornham Lane and the A627M link road.
