Greater Manchester’s Plan for Homes, Jobs and the Environment: The Greater Manchester Spatial Framework Draft is open for consultation.
The Greater Manchester Spatial Framework, prepared by the Greater Manchester Combined Authority, centres around making the Manchester city region fit for the future and one of the best places in the world to live, work and visit.
Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham said:
“As we outline plans for homes and jobs, transport infrastructure, clean air and the environment, I want to highlight Greater Manchester’s commitment to put people at the heart of everything we do.
“Greater Manchester’s plan is a plan for the people, set to make Greater Manchester the very best place to grow up get on and grow old.”
Why We Are Consulting
Local people are the driving force behind Greater Manchester’s success. It’s important that you have your say on the future of the place you call home, and help shape its transition into a world-leading city region.
Following this consultation, we will review all the responses we’ve received and consider how we need to revise the plan in light of what you’ve said. Our current timetable is for a second phase of consultation to take place in autumn 2019, and for a final, agreed plan ready to implement in December 2020.
A number of events are planned across different Districts across Greater Manchester. This will be added to as the consultation progresses.
Consultation starts on 21st January 2019 and runs until and including 18th March 2019.
There are several ways to have your say on the plans:
- Online at https://www.gmconsult.org/
- By email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
- By post to Planning Team Consultation, Greater Manchester Combined Authority, 1st Floor Churchgate House, 56 Oxford Road, Manchester
