Great Homes for Greater Manchester (GH4GM) is about delivering better housing for the people who live and work in Greater Manchester (GM). It brings together housing providers, investors, developers, planners, business, voluntary organisations and trade bodies who have a shared vision to create great homes for Greater Manchester.
GH4GM is a coalition which builds advocacy, communicates and promotes Greater Manchester’s housing aspirations, innovation and solutions and:
- works with the GM Mayor, GM MPs and Council leaders to support and deliver better housing for the people of Greater Manchester
- provides a strong voice – and build consensus – to make the case for more powers and fiscal devolution to deliver Great Homes for Greater Manchester
- helps to support, influence and deliver Andy Burnham’s key Mayoral Manifesto commitments
With its devolved powers, Greater Manchester can do things differently and become a beacon of housing excellence. The GM Mayor is committed to transforming Greater Manchester and pushing forward on an ambitious programme to spread prosperity to all parts of Greater Manchester. The Greater Manchester Housing Strategy sets out the Mayoral vision to deliver safe, decent and affordable homes for all and tackling homelessness.
The Mayor has committed to build at least 50,000 homes that people can truly afford. Greater Manchester has an unprecedented opportunity to build great housing and places and realise high ambitions for its people, places and environment.
