What is Bury 2030?

A vision for our Borough

By 2030 no matter who you are, or where you live, people in the borough of Bury will have equal chances to be the best they can be.

Your invitation to shape our future

Bury 2030 started last year with a “Big Conversation” in which 1,100 people from around the borough gave us their thoughts, wishes and concerns.

This feedback has helped to produce this latest plan – but if it is to succeed, it must have widespread support from all sections of the community: residents and businesses, young and old.

That’s why we’re inviting everyone to join in and help us produce a plan that is truly backed by Bury.

Visit to read the plan and have your say

Improving Intermediate Care in Bury

We (Bury Council and NHS Bury Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG)) are seeking views from people living in Bury, local health and care professionals and other interested parties on the proposal to make changes to the way we deliver intermediate care services.

You can access more information and detail on the background to the proposal in a paper that was discussed at our Strategic Commissioning Board, a joint Bury Council and NHS Bury CCG committee, access the paper here.

To capture your views and feedback before any decision on the proposal is made, a period of public consultation will run for 6 weeks from 19th October 2020 until 30th November 2020 – click here to have your say

Hate Crime Awareness

Bury Council and GMP are carrying out this hate crime questionnaire to gain an understanding into people’s knowledge of hate crimes and assist both GMP and Bury Council to more effectively tackle hate crime and how anti-hate crime awareness can be improved.

  • Consultation on minimum licensing standards for taxis and private hire vehicles is to run from 8th October to 3rd December:

Clarence Park

Across the Borough of Bury there are 12 Green Flag accredited parks of which Clarence Park is one. Clarence Park was first granted the Green Flag award in 2005 and has achieved it every year since – 16 years running. 

To help us build on the Green Flag success at Clarence Park and to help shape future plans for the park, please spare a few minutes to complete the Clarence Park feedback survey.  The survey will run until Wednesday 18 November 2020. Please note that any future improvements at the park will be subject to securing adequate funding. 

Thank you for your continued support,

Kind regards, The One Community Team
