Latest GMSF proposals announced on Monday 7 Jan

by Iain Roberts on 4 January, 2019

The latest version of the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework (GMSF) is set to be announced on Monday 7 January 2019 by Mayor Andy Burnham and the leaders of the ten authorities – including Stockport.

The GMSF sets out where new homes and business premises will be built over the next 20 years, and the infrastructure to support them.

We expect the latest plans to see a reduction in building on the Green Belt compared to the much-criticised 2016 proposals, but all the indications are that there will still be some Green Belt release.

An 8-week consultation on the plans will start on 21 January.

    Has anyone got any information or is this a rumour / false news

    This is not a rumour. Gatley Golf Club are currently in negotiation for the sale of their land to developers who include Peel Holdings.

    • Iain Roberts says:

      Sounds like you know more about it than we do, Alan. The councillors have not had any communications about this from the golf club, developers, Peel Holdings or the council.

    Presume that councilllors will support local residents in opposing sell off of a local amenity to protect the neighbourhood and to preserve wildlife.
