Planning and regeneration Core Strategy 2012-2027

Manchester's Core Strategy was adopted on the 11 July 2012 and is the key document in the Manchester Local Plan. It was updated in March 2024, after the Places for Everyone joint development plan was adopted. It sets out the long term strategic policies for Manchester's future development and will form the framework that planning applications will be assessed against.
