A brief explanation of the background of this document and its relationship to other development plan documents being produced by the relevant nine Greater Manchester districts is provided below. Background - In 2014, the ten Greater Manchester local authorities agreed to prepare a joint Development Plan Document, the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework (GMSF), with the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) co-ordinating its production on behalf of the ten districts. In December 2020, Stockport Council took the decision to withdraw from the GMSF. Subsequently, the nine remaining authorities (Bolton, Bury, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Trafford, Tameside and Wigan), agreed to continue to progress a joint Development Plan Document for themselves, known as Places for Everyone, which will form part of each individual district local plans. PfE2021 provides the strategic policy framework for the districts including the overall scale and distribution of development, the spatial strategy, strategic site allocations and Green Belt boundary amendments together with a number of strategic thematic policies which will be used to manage development and determine planning applications in the individual districts. PfE2021 is accompanied by a Policies Map which shows the allocations and designations in the Plan. PfE2021 will cover the whole of Oldham borough except the part that falls within the Peak District National Park. Documents available for inspection - PfE2021 and supporting/background evidence documents are published on the GMCA Website (www.greatermanchester-ca.gov.uk/what-we-do/planning-and-housing/places-for-everyone/ ) on behalf of the nine districts. In addition, where open, hard copies will be placed in Oldham's libraries. Please note that due to coronavirus restrictions the number of libraries open and their opening hours are subject to change.
