​Letters going to all Bury households about jobs and homes masterplan

All 84,000 households across Bury are about to receive a letter outlining the revised regional plan for jobs, homes and the environment.

The letters will land on doormats over the next few days, following today’s decision by the Greater Manchester Combined Authority to approve the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework for consultation.

The letter will be tailored to each of the 17 wards in the borough of Bury, and will outline how the GMSF will affect the ward in which you live and how you can get involved in the consultation, which is due to run from 21 January to 18 March.

The GMSF aims to ensure that enough land is secured in the right places to deliver the homes and jobs needed to create thriving and sustainable communities across the city region by 2037.

  • Six drop-in sessions are being held across Bury for residents to view the GMSF plans and talk to planning officers about them.

They are as follows:

Wednesday 30 January – Elizabethan Suite, Bury (12-8pm)

Monday 4 February – Elton High School, Bury (4–8pm)

Wednesday 6 February – Longfield Centre, Prestwich (2-8pm)

Monday 11 February – Radcliffe Market Hall (2–8pm)

Tuesday 12 February – Castlebrook High School (4-8pm)

Wednesday 6 March – Elizabethan Suite (12–8pm)

  • Details of the plan and how to comment will be available online at from 14 January. Also, from 21 January, hard copies can be inspected at the Planning Division reception (Ground Floor, 3 Knowsley Place, Bury); at Bury Town Hall reception; at local libraries and at the Tottington Centre during their normal opening hours.

You can also be kept up to date with future consultations on the GMSF by registering your interest with the Greater Manchester Combined Authority - email or call 0161 778 7006.
