Bury Council is currently consulting on what is called its ‘Core Strategy’. This is an important planning document which sets out the long-term vision for the future development of the borough to 2029.
They have produced a Second Draft Publication Core Strategy for consultation to 30 November 2012.
The main changes in the second draft are:
– the provision of more land for ’employment uses’ at Gin Lane in Walmersley
– the removal of most building restrictions on what is called ‘Other Protected Open Land’
My understand is that the only area of land that this affects in Prestwich, is the land to the north of St Margaret’s Primary school (ie behind the school next to the Motorway). All the other areas are ‘Green Belt’ and would remain protected.
You can read all the plans on the Council’s Website here. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if I can provide any further information.
