CPRE’s response to the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework is still being finalised, but we broadly welcome a number of improvements in this version, such as the concentration of new development in city and town centres, the brownfield preference, a focus on and investment in integrated transport hubs, the creation of new Green Belt land and proposals to reduce the Green Belt loss originally proposed by half. Other important ambitions include proposals for a zero carbon by 2038 target, a linked policy of no shale gas exploration, and calls for air quality improvements.

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.
