Wigan Council is working in partnership with the nine other Greater Manchester councils to develop the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework (GMSF), a new strategic plan for the city region which will run through to 2037.
The plan sets out how we will make Greater Manchester one of the best places to live and work in the world, and will ensure that we have the right land available in the right places to deliver the homes and jobs we need up to 2037.
It will also identify the new infrastructure, such as transport, schools, health centres and utility networks, required to achieve this. A revised draft of the GMSF was consulted on in early 2019. All responses received are currently being reviewed - view all responses (external link).
A previous version of the plan was consulted on in 2016 and all comments received at that stage have been taken into account in the 2019 draft.
