To consider a report of the Corporate Director (Place) and Deputy Chief Executive.

 

The Greater Manchester Spatial Framework (GMSF) has been the subject to two previous drafts in 2016 and 2019 which have been the subject of extensive evidence gathering and consultation. This report sets out some background information in respect of the GMSF and why it is being produced. It refers to the strategic context which the plan sits within whilst referencing the plan making process to date.

 

The report explores the proposals in a Stockport context, in particular having regard to the need to proceed with the provision of an updated planning framework to support inclusive and sustainable growth.

 

NOTE: This item was originally considered by the Scrutiny Committee at its meeting on 5 November 2020, but has now been reissued with an accompanying addendum report that sets out a series of amendments to the Stockport element of the GMSF which seek to address a number of issues that are of paramount importance to Members.

 

The Scrutiny Committee is invited to comment on the report.
