Places for Everyone

We have ambitious plans to give people, communities and businesses hope and confidence for the future. We are a pioneering city-region that is open for business locally and internationally; a thriving, prosperous place that supports everyone to reach their full potential and ensures no-one is left behind.

The maps on this site show the evolution of the proposals contained within the new joint plan, ‘Places for Everyone’, which is a joint plan between nine Local Authorities – Bolton, Bury, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Tameside, Trafford and Wigan – which aims to bring these ambitions to life.

The maps allow you to understand the proposed boundaries of sites, as well as view important contextual information.

For historical purposes, you may also wish to view information about the GMSF and the maps created for it here on MappingGM.

What is this plan and why do we need it?

Our joint plan has been born from a collective ambition to build better, affordable, more sustainable homes so we can all enjoy happier, healthier lives with more opportunities for everyone who lives and works here.

We want to work together to make sure that our areas are dynamic, and attractive places to invest and do business.

To enable us to do this we need to build the right homes, in the right places so we can all live in well-connected and environmentally sustainable villages, towns and cities.
