The newly elected Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham and the recently appointed portfolio holder for housing, planning and homelessness, Paul Dennett, have announced that there will be a radical rewrite of the next draft of the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework (GMSF). A timeframe for this has not yet been outlined.
We are continuing to process all the comments we received as part of the consultation for the first draft GMSF, with a view to publishing them after the General Election on 8 June. Details of this will be available on our social media channels and website.
