CPRE Lancashire engaged with Burnley’s Local Plan Team during the various stages of the Local Plan progression.  In accordance with CPRE policy we wrote responses querying the assumptions used for the housing and employment projections, and advocated that the Local Plan with lower housing and employment land requirements should be adopted to steer sustainable development in the future.  We successfully made recommendations for a number of housing and employment sites to be saved from Green Belt release.

The publication of the next draft of the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework has been put back until October 2018, following revised population figures.  Greater Manchester leaders agreed to delay the publication and consultation on the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework, following the publication of new official population projections.
