What we do

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.
