Greater Manchester’s Plan for Homes, Jobs, and the Environment

Greater Manchester’s Plan for Homes, Jobs, and the Environment (the spatial framework) has been put together by the Greater Manchester Combined Authority, which comprises the Mayor of Greater Manchester and the leaders of Greater Manchester’s ten local councils.

The plan is about providing the right homes, in the right places, for people across our city region. It’s about creating jobs and improving infrastructure to ensure the future prosperity of Greater Manchester.

The plan:

  • sets out how Greater Manchester should develop up until 2037;
  • identifies the amount of new development that will come forward across the 10 districts, in terms of housing, offices, and industry and warehousing, and the main areas in which this will be focused;
  • supports the delivery of key infrastructure, such as transport and utilities;
  • protects the important environmental assets across the city region;
  • allocates sites for employment and housing outside of the existing urban area; and
  • defines a new green belt boundary for Greater Manchester

If you would like to have your say on the spatial framework, you can take part in the consultation here. The consultation closes on Monday 18 March, 2019 at 23:59.
