Planning and regeneration Local Plan

The local plan review

Development in Manchester is at record levels: investment here is creating jobs and new homes are being built. At the same time, we want any future growth to support our ambition to be a zero-carbon city by 2038 or before.

To achieve this, we're reviewing our existing Local Plan and its key issues.

The 'Manchester Local Plan'

Our existing local plan sets out Manchester's approach to development and is used to guide decisions on planning applications across the city.

To make sure it fits our needs and ambitions for the next 15 years, the first step has been to look at what the new local plan should cover: we call this the Issues Consultation stage and the formal consultation stage finished on 1 May 2020. The next stage will be the draft Local Plan, which will have more detail on how the city will deal with the main issues it is facing.
