Government Fails Local Communities Again

by jontwigge on 4 October, 2018

Greater Manchester Mayor, Andy Burnham, has said that due to an unexpected announcement from the government the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework (GMSF) is being delayed again.

The GMSF describes the number of new homes, and industrial land, required across the whole region in the coming decades. The new announcement means that the government is adjusting expected population figures again just months since the last change caused delays. With this new uncertainty the Mayor has no choice but to delay the GMSF plans yet again.

The initial report from GMSF proposed that Stockport would need around 19,000 new homes in coming years including 4,000 completely swallowing up High Lane locally.

Local residents will now have to wait even longer before they will know if their local communities will face large areas of development.
