Dear Mr Burnham

On behalf of the Greater Manchester Housing Providers (GMHP), congratulations on winning the election and becoming the first Mayor of Greater Manchester.

You have a unique opportunity to end the region’s housing crisis and a critical role to play in transforming Greater Manchester for future generations.

GMHP share your priorities and the collective role we play in communities across the city region means we can help you achieve the promises you have made. We want to work with you to grow the region’s economy and deliver the homes local people have said Greater Manchester desperately needs.

Together we can increase the supply of affordable homes, tackle homelessness and create jobs and growth as we invest and build throughout Greater Manchester.

Hundreds of thousands of people are rightly proud to call here their home. But with rising house prices, increases in private rents and growing homelessness, affordable housing in the region is beyond the reach of far too many. Our research has shown eight out of ten people in Greater Manchester believe there is a shortage of affordable homes in the region.

We’ve been campaigning for everyone in Greater Manchester to live in a home they can afford, and the public has spoken.

It’s now time for us to get on with the job and work together to achieve that goal, build homes and end the housing crisis. Greater Manchester expects and we can help.

Yours sincerely,

Greater Manchester Housing Providers

Local people want more homes
