The Government’s Localism Act 2011 introduced major reforms to the planning system that gives local communities new rights to shape and plan their neighbourhood.
Using this legislation we can develop our own Neighbourhood Plan and:
- choose where new homes, shops and offices should be built;
- have a say on what those new buildings should look like, influence the design and functionality of open spaces; and
- grant planning permission for new developments the community wants to see go ahead.
With this in mind, SOS-Save Our Slattocks welcomes local residents who are interested to join a steering group.
To find out more, come along to Thornham Cricket Club – 7pm – Wednesday 13th September 2017
The next version of the Greader Manchester Spatial Framework [GMSF] is due out in September followed by a second consultation period.
That isn’t that far away.
SOS – Save Our Slattocks group intends to submit comments/objections to this second GMSF consultation alongside your own letters and emails.
To help us do this we need YOUR help, our local experts.
Many of you will have local knowledge about wildlife; water courses/springs; local history; Stakehill Distribution Park; geology/geography; planning: to name but a few.
All these ‘snippets’ of local knowledge will help us put together a substantial, considered and well researched submission to the GMSF consultation.
Every little helps, so if you think you might have local information get in touch.
Please send information or contact me via email so that it doesn’t get lost in the general info on The Slattocks Telegraph:
