Current Local Plan policies


The Local Plan isn't one document. The policies and plans below make up the current Local Plan. Some of these are still in the process of being developed.
When a plan is adopted, it doesn't mean the land outlined in the plan will definitely be built on. In most cases, developers will still need to apply for planning permission and have their applications considered on an individual basis.

Adopted plans


Plans in progress

  • Places for Everyone plan - a long-term strategic scale plan for new jobs, homes, and sustainable growth. It will also provide housing and employment land targets and review the Tameside’s Green Belt.
  • Homes, Spaces, Places - a plan which outlines further detail beyond Places for Everyone, protects areas of land for certain uses and identifies other areas which can be used for new development in the borough.
  • Neighbourhood plans - any community in the borough can get together to create a neighbourhood plan which details an idea or a group of ideas for an area. Neighbourhood plans become part of the local plan if they're adopted.
