A fairer city - a public consultation
Salford City Council is preparing a local plan which will be the main land use planning document for the city. The local plan will:
set out how Salford should develop up to the year 2037
identify the amount of new development that will come forward across the city, such as housing, offices, industry and retail and the main areas in which this will be focused
support the delivery of key infrastructure, such as transport and utilities
protect the city's important environmental assets
allocate land for particular uses or protective designations
set out the main policies that will be used to determine planning applications
All decisions about whether Green Belt boundaries in Salford should be altered will be made through the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework and not through the Salford Local Plan.
The Revised Draft Greater Manchester Spatial Framework sets out the overall planning strategy for the whole of Greater Manchester, and the Revised Draft Salford Local Plan provides more detailed policies for Salford.
The plans will look at things like where new homes should be built, where local jobs should be created and protect the city’s important environmental assets.
Next steps in producing a local plan
All of the comments received on the Revised Draft Local Plan and during the previous stages of consultation, together with any new evidence, will be taken into account in developing an updated version of the local plan. This will be the version of the plan that the city council would like to adopt, but it will be subject to a further period of representations and then a public examination.
