Denton and Reddish MP, Andrew Gwynne, has responded to the consultation on the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework, the main planning document for housing, economic growth and infrastructure across the city region for the future.

Andrew Gwynne said:

“This is a once in a generation chance to help shape our local communities and the wider city region. The policies and proposals in the Spatial Framework will be used to determine planning applications across Greater Manchester for decades to come so it’s crucially important the plan is right and your voices are heard at this early stage.”

The key points of the MP’s response include:

• Opposing the Bredbury Parkway Industrial Estate extension on Greenbelt land in the Tame Valley
• Supporting the proposed additions to Greenbelt around Denton and Haughton Green
• Suggesting further additions to the Greenbelt at Dane Bank and Windmill Lane
• Supporting public transport proposals for Audenshaw, Denton, Reddish and Dukinfield.
• Supporting a Mayoral Development Corporation to regenerate Stockport Town Centre.

He is also encouraging all local residents to make their views know about the plan proposals. The consultation website is at:
