Single Statutory (Strategic Spatial) Framework

The Devolution Agreement establishes the need to develop a Strategic Spatial Framework across the Combined Authority area. Officers across the six authorities have commenced work on this with the intention to prepare the Framework in three stages:

  1. Interim (informal) framework pulling together the appropriate elements from existing Plans.
  2. Align and where necessary commission a consistent evidence base.
  3. Formal Strategic Spatial Framework.
