  • The Metropolitan Borough of Oldham is a metropolitan borough of Greater Manchester, England. It has a population of 228,765, and spans 55 square miles (142 km2). The borough is named after its largest town, Oldham, but also includes the outlying towns of Chadderton, Failsworth, Royton and Shaw and Crompton, the village of Lees, and the parish of Saddleworth. Although a 20th-century creation, the borough has Neolithic, Bronze Age and Roman heritage. It encompasses several former mill towns, which expanded and coalesced during the late-19th century as a result of population growth and advances in textile manufacture during the Industrial Revolution. Although some parts contiguous with the city of Manchester are highly industrialised and densely populated, about two-thirds of the borough is composed of rural open space; the eastern half stretches across the South Pennines. For its first 12 years the borough had a two-tier system of local government; Oldham Council shared power with the Greater Manchester County Council. Since the Local Government Act 1985 Oldham Council has effectively been a unitary authority, serving as the sole executive, deliberative and legislative body responsible for local policy, setting council tax, and allocating budget in the district. The Metropolitan Borough of Oldham has two civil parishes and 20 electoral wards. Noted as one of the more unpopular amalgamations of territory created by local government reform in the 1970s, the Oldham borough underwent a £100,000 rebranding exercise in early 2008. The town has no listed buildings with a Grade I rating, and the borough's architecture has been described as "mediocre". There have been calls for the borough to be renamed, but that possibility was dismissed during the rebranding of 2008. (en)
  • Oldham ist ein Metropolitan Borough im Metropolitan County Greater Manchester in England. Verwaltungssitz ist die gleichnamige Stadt Oldham. Weitere bedeutende Orte im Borough sind Chadderton, Failsworth, Lees, Royton, Saddleworth und Shaw and Crompton. Die Reorganisation der Grenzen und der Kompetenzen der lokalen Behörden führte 1974 zur Bildung des Metropolitan Borough. Fusioniert wurden dabei der County Borough Oldham sowie die Urban Districts Chadderton, Shaw and Crompton, Failsworth und Lees. Diese Gebietskörperschaften gehörten zuvor zur Grafschaft Lancashire. Von Yorkshire wurde der Urban District Saddleworth hinzugefügt. 1986 wurde Oldham faktisch eine Unitary Authority, als die Zentralregierung die übergeordnete Verwaltung von Greater Manchester auflöste. Oldham blieb für zeremonielle Zwecke Teil von Greater Manchester, wie auch für einzelne übergeordnete Aufgaben wie Polizei, Feuerwehr und öffentlicher Verkehr. (de)
