Trafford Local Plan: Land Allocations

The Land Allocations Plan was to be the principal means by which the objectives defined in the Core Strategy would be translated onto the ground. The Council consulted on a full draft of the Land Allocations Plan for 6 weeks from 3 February 2014 to 17 March 2014.

On 25 March 2015, the Council's Executive agreed to delay the production of the Land Allocations Plan until such time that the production of the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework is further advanced.

Previous Consultations

Shaping the Plan (August 2012)

The Council prepared an initial consultation document called " Shaping the Plan" August 2012 . This document aimed to stimulate discussion as to what the Land Allocations Plan should contain. This document was accompanied by a further call for sites invitation, giving people another opportunity to complete a Site Submission Form , to suggest land for development and/or protection in their neighbourhoods.

A Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report - Consultation Draft accompanied the consultation document. This sets out the way in which it is proposed that the Council will assess potential allocations and policies in the Plan to ensure it is sustainable.

A Statutory Notice was placed in the local press, advertising the commencement of the consultation period.
