Planzine - GMSF Special - Edition 17 (January 2019)


Greater Manchester's plan for homes, jobs and the environment now out to consultation

Greater Manchester's plan for homes, jobs and the environment

Greater Manchester's Plan for Homes, Jobs and the Environment (also known as the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework or GMSF) is a plan that ensures enough land is secured in the right places to deliver the jobs and homes needed to create thriving and sustainable communities right across the city-region until 2037. The last draft consulted on in late 2016 / early 2017 attracted 27,000 comments and parts of the plan have been drastically rewritten.

The revised draft of the GMSF was made available for comment over an 8-week period running from 21 January to 18 March 2019. This consultation is now closed and all responses received will be fully considered before moving onto the next stage of the plan.
