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 SGMGB Management Committee has raised a number of issues with the Planning Inspectors who are Examining the Places for Everyone Spatial Plan. We have concerns about the significant changes that are being proposed by the GMCA, which mean that the Plan is considerably different to that which was consulted on in October 2021.
