Places for Everyone Joint Development Plan 2021


Places for Everyone is a long-term plan of nine Greater Manchester districts (Bolton, Bury, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Tameside, Trafford and Wigan) for jobs, new homes, and sustainable growth. It has been prepared by the GMCA on behalf of the nine districts.
 
The plan will determine the kind of development that takes place across the city-region, maximising the use of brownfield land and urban spaces while protecting green belt land from the risk of unplanned development.
It will also ensure all new developments are sustainably integrated into Greater Manchester’s transport network or supported by new infrastructure.
 
The plan is the result of a process that began with the publication of the first Greater Manchester Spatial Framework in 2016, and has been informed by the feedback received from residents, businesses and the development industry.
 
We have now produced what we consider to be our final plan, the one we want to submit to the Secretary of State.
 
Before we do that, we want you to tell us if you think the plan is ‘sound’ as set out in Government policy and whether we have complied with the necessary legal requirements. A period for representations is taking place between 9 August and 3 October 2021.
 
Following this we intend to submit the plan to the Secretary of State, together with all the supporting documents / background evidence and any representations received during this final stage of consultation. Independent Inspector(s) will then be appointed to undertake an independent examination into the plan.
 
You can read the plan and supporting documents in full and find out more information about the proposals by going to www.greatermanchester-ca.gov.uk/placesforeveryone.
 
Paper copies of the Plan are also be available to view at Tameside’s libraries from the start of the consultation. Visit https://www.tameside.gov.uk/libraries/Covid19#OpenLibs for opening times.
 
The public consultation on this plan will take place on www.GMConsult.org from Monday, August 9 until Sunday, October 3.
Representations can be made by completing the online response form at www.GMConsult.org.
