​Jobs and homes masterplan to be unveiled in the New Year

Press Release   •   Dec 21, 2018 16:41 GMT

The revised Greater Manchester Spatial Framework is due to be published in the first half of January 2019.

Bury Council has promised that all householders will be notified of the publication and given details of how the proposals will affect where they live and how they can have their say.

The GMSF is Greater Manchester’s plan for jobs, homes and the environment that is being jointly prepared by the ten Greater Manchester authorities. The plan will manage the way that Greater Manchester and Bury grows and develops over the next 20 years or so and it will identify the land required to accommodate the future jobs and new homes that are needed across Greater Manchester and the new infrastructure, such as transport, schools and health centres that will be required alongside this.

Councillor Eamonn O’Brien, Bury’s cabinet member for finance and housing, said: “We promised that we would keep local residents informed of when the revised plans would be ready, and that’s exactly what we’ll do.

“Every household in the borough will receive a letter from Bury Council in mid-January, outlining what the GMSF means for their area, whether that’s in Ramsbottom, Radcliffe or Prestwich. It will also explain how residents can view the plans and how they can have their say during an eight-week period of consultation.”
