Greater Manchester Spatial Framework – Update

 

The Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) has announced the timeframe for the development and publication of the second draft of the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework.

 

The process will start in September with the publication of the responses to the initial consultation. This will be followed later in the year by the publication of data and associated sources of information, such as population estimates, which will help them to calculate the requirements for housing and employment. Some of this information is not yet available, for example they are waiting for the government to publish its national methodology for calculating housing need, which is expected to be released in the autumn.

 

The second draft of the plan will be developed in the new year, with the intention to publish it in June 2018. Following publication of the draft plan, there will be a 12-week period of public consultation

 

 

Christ Church, Woodford – Appeal for support

 

A few months ago thieves stole a large number of capstones from the churchyard wall. The extra cost of repairing this damage, after taking into account the amount covered by insurance, was some £4,000.

 

Woodford ChurchUrgent repairs to the Bell tower, following a structural survey, were also undertaken recently and cost a further £15,000.

 

The Parochial Church Council has therefore launched an Appeal for donations to assist in covering these wholly unexpected expenses. Full details are given in the accompanying leaflet – please click here.

 

Christ Church, Woodford, is a valuable and much-loved village asset. Please help to support it.
