"Hi, I'm Lisa Hallsworth and I'm your Neighbourhood Officer for St Mary's. If you have any issues regarding your tenancy or neighbourhood please contact me via our Service Centre."

  • Neighbourhood project

    The BGreen Project is a pioneering initiative across 2 wards and 5 estates in Central Oldham. We are the major landlord in the St Mary’s and Coldhurst wards. As a result of a high number of void properties, the St Mary’s estate contained significantly lower than average property asset values. Following an area review, other housing related indicators were identified, which included fuel poverty, high levels of benefit dependency and health and education outcomes.

  • Neighbourhood plan

    Key Priorities

    Ensure demand on services is appropriate:

    We will make appropriate referrals to services.

    Reduce demand on GMP and challenge perceptions around ASB:

    We will work with our partners, customers and colleagues to challenge perceptions and influence change.

    Reduce high levels of unemployment:

    We will promote to all customers FCHO employment and training advice plus work experience, volunteering and employment readiness.

    Encourage /signpost to health and well-being opportunities:

    We will work with groups and partner agencies to promote health activities in the area.

    Develop community development activity:

    We will continue to work with existing groups, promoting the work they do to the wider community.
