“During winter 2015/16 and spring 2016, we also asked local residents, businesses and land owners and developers to identify sites they think could be suitable for housing or employment development. This will help to determine whether there are areas of land available for development that individual districts or Greater Manchester are not currently aware of.
The sites submitted so far are available to view here so people are aware of all the ideas and proposals. These sites, shown coloured purple on the map, are promoted by owners/developers and have no endorsement as sites for future development by Greater Manchester and its constituent 10 districts. Decisions on whether sites will or will not be supported will be made as we develop the GMSF. The draft plan in October will provide the first opportunity to comment on the proposed spatial strategy and this will continue to be developed in the light of the consultation responses.
Call for sites – suggesting additional sites for built development
As well as the development sites that we have already identified we would like you to suggest any new additional sites for new housing, offices and industry / warehousing. If a site is already on the map then please do not submit it to us again. Sites of any size and in any location can be submitted.
We need you to draw the boundary of each site you are suggesting to us on the interactive map and then provide us with your contact details and information about the site using the online form that appears once the boundary has been plotted. The information we would like you to provide includes: the proposed use and estimated capacity of the site; the availability of the site and when it is likely to be developed; and whether the site is suitable and achievable for development. You may find the Greater Manchester Open Data Infrastructure map helpful in submitting your response.”
