Greater Manchester faces a London-style housing crisis unless action is taken - and soon.

Greater Manchester is the engine room of the Northern Powerhouse and one of the most successful economies in Europe over the past few years. With devolution gathering pace and the number of jobs growing, this is an exciting time for the region.

However, this success is under threat from a looming housing crisis. For over thirty years, not enough homes have been built to keep up with population growth. This means in many parts of Greater Manchester house prices have risen to unaffordable levels for many working people, and families are being forced to move further away from work, friends and loved ones. In many cases, people are looking outside Greater Manchester altogether, meaning our region loses out on spending on local goods and services, and other benefits to the local economy.

We think there is another way. That’s why we’re making the case for an ambitious housing strategy that matches the vision of the Northern Powerhouse.
