The land, which is in an elevated position, is a ‘L’ shaped parcel of land situated between houses fronting Wilkes Street, Hillside Day Nursery and houses fronting Ashdene Rise. It is an uneven and sloping site, part of which is a redundant tarmac surfaced car park and the remainder is grassed with some trees and shrubs, and grassed berms to the Sholver Lane frontage. It adjoins maturing woodland on its southern boundary.
The bunded area to the Sholver Lane elevation has been removed, and a new access road to the nursery premises has been created.
The land is located on Sholver Lane which can be approached directly from Ripponden Road (A672) or Wilkes Street which is also approached off Ripponden Road. It is within the established residential district of Moorside which is close to Saddleworth. Oldham and Shaw town centres are within 2.9 and 2.4 miles respectively and benefit from Metrolink park and ride facilities.
