CPRE has been meeting with community groups across Greater Manchester to provide advice on how they can best articulate on local issues.  Key points are to stick to answering the inspectors’ MIQs and follow the guidance provided.  It is important to be proportionate and courteous.

The examination starts on the 1st November.  For all information concerning the programme, examination news, and submission and evidence base documents please visit the external examination website
