Greater Manchester Housing Providers proved once again that they are at the heart of long term housing plans for the region, as they partnered the Mayors for Greater Manchester and Salford, Andy Burnham, and Paul Dennett at the launch of the much anticipated GM Housing Strategy.

Following over 12 months of genuine co-creation, numerous listening events and writing groups the Greater Manchester Housing Strategy was launched on Tuesday 18 June. The strategy sets out Greater Manchester’s plans to deliver 50,000 affordable homes – 30,000 of which will be social, by 2037. The strategy confirms our strong commitment for everyone in Greater Manchester to access a safe and healthy home.

Charlie Norman, Chief Executive of GMHP member MSV Housing Group said: “Building on the incredible partnership work in Greater Manchester and, as the late great Tony Wilson said ‘we do things different around here’, we are delighted to have been heavily involved in a progressive and forward forward thinking GM Housing Strategy. And I’m even more delighted to see that 30,000 of the homes planned will be social. In Greater Manchester we are taking charge of our own destiny, using our unique position with devolution, supportive politicians, mature partnerships and collaboration to get things done.
