Local Plans

In December 2020 SMBC councillors met to vote on whether to accept the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework.

The council voted to reject being part of the GMSF, so now the council will have to develop it's own Stockport Plan to cover housing, transport and infrastructure etc by the end of 2023.

The draft plan is expected to be out soon for public consultation.

Updated details can be found at 



The High Lane Village Neighbourhood Forum [HLVNF] has been successful in the referendum stage which saw the Plan being made. It contains policies in regard to any future developments in the village [Housing, transport, green and open spaces and heritage].

It will now be incorporated into the SMBC Local Plan.

Please look at the HLVNF page on this website for more information on how the Forum progressed through the process and got the Plan made.
