What next?

Well the deadline has come and gone and we do hope that you all managed to get your objections in on time and that you found our website a good source of information.

We have been informed that during the initial consultation over 20,000 representations were received , we assume that this total was for the whole of Greater Manchester.

The GM Planning team will now undertake a comprehensive review of all the responses received and the evidence submitted so that they can produce a report on this in spring 2017. The comments which have been received and validated will in due course be in the public domain available to read.

This will be followed by:

  • Publication’ Plan consultation June/July 2017
  • Submission to Secretary of State November 2017
  • Examination and adoption 2018

We also have the inaugural Greater Manchester mayoral election which will be held on 4 May 2017.
