The Greater Manchester Spatial Framework was due to be published on 5 October 2020 with a special meeting of Bury Council on 21 October 2020 to agree the plan. Assuming that the plan had been agreed by all ten Greater Manchester councils then the public would have had a seven week consultation in November and December.
Publication of the plan was cancelled on Monday (5th), press reports blame a dispute between Tameside and Stockport councils around an industrial site at Bredbury Park….
Apparently the “Greater Manchester Spatial Framework, is currently being finalised and will be published once necessary final changes have been made.
Whenever it is published, GMSF will be wrong plan at the wrong time. We do need homes, but these should not be built on precious green belt countryside land. GMSF is based on out of date housing figures at a time when the Government is about to introduce a new planning and housing need system.
