Save Greater Manchester's Green Belt (SGMGB) Places for Everyone (formerly GMSF) Challenge Fund

Places for Everyone is Greater Manchester’s Joint Development Plan for housing, the economy and the environment (previously known as the GMSF). We believe that it needlessly proposes Green Belt and Protected Open Land for development, which will cause harm to the climate, the environment and people’s well-being, without providing sufficient affordable homes, sustainable transport, health care facilities or schools. It should be carefully assessed by the Secretary of State on behalf of the citizens of Greater Manchester. If you support this view, please sign the petition on the above link.

Note: “Brownfield land” means land that has been previously developed. “Buffer” refers to extra numbers added as a contingency in case more than expected is needed.

The first stepping stone in our challenge is to raise funds to allow us to instruct our planning experts to provide a forensic review of Places for Everyone (formerly GMSF) and prepare a robust and sound objection to the imminent consultation. Our response will then go to the Secretary of State and Public Enquiry, it is vital that our response is prepared by experts if we are to successfully challenge this plan and save our Green Belt. 

We know that times are hard and money is tight for many but donations of all sizes are most welcome. You can also help by sharing with family, friends and colleagues.
