The Development Plan
Sets out existing policies used to determine planning applications.
The emerging Bury Local Plan is being prepared and will set out policies and allocate sites for future development. It will replace the existing Unitary Development Plan.
A period of public consultation on the draft Greater Manchester Spatial Framework took place from 31 October 2016 to 16 January 2017.
The 10 Greater Manchester Authorities have jointly produced plans to guide future minerals and waste proposals.
Supplementary Planning Documents provide additional guidance on the implementation of particular planning policies.
Bury Council is required to monitor the effectiveness of planning policies and assess how we are performing against the timescales set in the Local Development Scheme.
