Revised spatial framework timetable to go before leaders next week

REVISED plans for the timetable of the publication and consultation on the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework (GMSF) will go before Leaders at next week’s Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) meeting.

Leaders agreed at June’s GMCA meeting that the Spatial Framework consultation would be delayed to make sure that it uses the most-up-to-date figures. This came after official population estimates showed slower projected growth in Greater Manchester’s population. This could mean there will be lower household growth projections when the figures are released in September 2018.

Greater Manchester Leaders will be presented with a report on the GMSF timetable at the next GMCA meeting on July 27. This will outline plans for the draft GMSF to be reported to the October GMCA meeting for approval before a 12-week consultation period.

After this consultation, further work will take place on the plan before a new draft goes before the GMCA for approval and another consultation period takes place next year. This plan will then be approved by the Combined Authority for submission to the Secretary of State for Housing Communities and Local Government towards the end of 2019 or start of 2020.

"The Spatial Framework is our chance to provide the homes and jobs we need to make sure everyone can grow up, get on and get old. We are determined to get this plan right for everyone and while delaying the plan was not an easy decision, it was the right one." -- Greater Manchester’s lead for housing, planning and homelessness, and City Mayor for Salford, Paul Dennett
