Greater Manchester Planning review.

on Sun Oct 23, 2016 9:14 pm
First topic message reminder :

The little publicised review into land use across GM up to 2035 has been published ahead of local consultation.
It identifies an additional 22,500 houses for Wigan up to 2035. This is in addition to the targets set in the current UDP and the additions authorised by the government inspector. Green belt sites have been idetified to help to meet the demnad for building land. Other changes include an industial zone on the M6 corridor from  Ashton to Standish.

A comment, since removed, from A MEN reader suggested that the Northern Powerhouse was a con and was a means of building tens of thousands of extra homes so that they could shunt the immigrants from London to the North.

A couple of years ago, developers were only building a house when they sold one. Who's going to build them? Who's going to buy them? Where's the money coming from?
I don't see any talk of mass building of government funded social housing.
But, if it is all going to be social housing, why are you all complaining? Everybody knows there isn't enough social housing as it is at the present. Social housing waiting lists are as long as your arm, and longer. Couples with kids living with their parents and grandparents.
Somewhere along the line them houses are going to have to be built, but not £200,000 to £300,000 houses, because there's enough of them already!

A Wigan councillor has vowed to maintain his opposition to the controversial GM Spatial Framework despite it costing him his cabinet place.

Coun Paul Kenny has been fired from the ruling Labour Party’s top table for attending a meeting of anti-GMSF groups last week.

If the Labour Party 'ruled' Wigan council, the government wouldn't be calling the tunes re. all this development.

The Conservative government says "jump", Wigan Labour councillors say "how high"?

It (For it see smith) tells the councillors how to conduct themselves, if they don't don as told, they are labeled as dissenters and victimised.

Residents who registered their opposition to a controversial jobs and housing plan have been thanked by Makerfield MP Yvonne Fovargue. The first draft of the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework had attracted criticism for proposing development on green belt land. And politicians across the region have echoed calls for it to undergo a significant re-write ahead of further public consultations.

Yvonne says that there has been no meaningful democratic oversight. The review was structured to bypass local democracy.
She should have been aware of this at the outset but I wouldn't be surprised if it emerged that she had been deliberately left out of the loop.The same can't be said of Andy Burnham. He will have played both sides again st the middle.

Andy Burnham has said he will re-write the GMSF should he become Mayor - he's a chancer of the highest order. The GMSF calls for more houses than are actually needed in Greater Manchester and more than we would need in future years with regard to the current growing population.

The majority of the new builds in GM will be to house the many immigrants currently residing in the massively over-crowded into the South East, and the many homeless immigrants not yet accounted for.
