The new Bury Local Plan will set out a range of planning policies that will seek to support or restrict development up to 2035 and will zone land for specific uses. It will replace the current Plan which was adopted in 1997. The Local Plan will sit alongside and complement the adopted Greater Manchester Minerals and Waste plans and the emerging Greater Manchester Spatial Framework (GMSF).

Whereas the GMSF deals with strategic planning matters that are of significance at the Greater Manchester level, Bury's Local Plan will, within the context of the GMSF, guide and manage future growth and development at the local level. The Local Plan will be used as the basis for determining future planning applications, which will need to be in conformity with it. Consultation recently took place on a draft GMSF which included proposals for an amended Green Belt for Greater Manchester and the identification of a number of strategic site allocations for housing and employment development These are issues that win continue to be dealt with through the GMSF process, rather than the Local Plan.
