This year residents of two Oldham neighbourhoods, Sholver and Westwood, will work with Carbon Coop to explore how transforming power, heat and transport can benefit local people.  

Together the group will discover, shape, test and own plans & projects designed to transform their neighbourhood and energy system.

Through this opportunities for warmer homes, lower bills, greener ways of travelling, better health and new jobs will be brought to life. A citizen-led answer to building back better. 

To get the ball rolling we will investing into several projects driven and owned by local people.

Read about our plans on our community programme timeline. The project is funded by ICLEI as part of the Action Fund.
