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 Greater Manchester Combined Authority, which comprises the Mayor of Greater Manchester and the leaders of Greater Manchester's ten local councils.

This 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

The plan talks about jobs and homes, but it's about so much more than bricks and mortar. It's about reducing inequalities, improving the lives of our residents, and transforming Greater Manchester into the world-leading city-region we know it can be.
