The Covid-19 crisis has demonstrated that there is great resilience and innovation in the housing sector across Greater Manchester, it has also brought shortfalls and other priorities sharply into focus.

We have recently worked closely with “GH4GM” which looked at how Greater Manchester can do housing differently post the pandemic and took the form of 4 Summits involving housing leaders across the developer, social housing and local authority space. GH4GM’s work culminated in a report “Building Back Better Homes and Places Report” launched at a recent Greater Manchester All Party Parliamentary Group meeting.

On 3 December, partner, Jonathan Cox was part of the sixth and final meeting of the Greater Manchester APPG ‘Recovery Series’. During this meeting, they were provided with a timely opportunity to take forward, action and accelerate Greater Manchester's ambitions to build back better affordable, quality, health, accessible and low carbon homes and places. It concluded that there is a huge challenge ahead but also a great opportunity for Greater Manchester to do housing differently.

Read about the scale of the challenge and the plans on how to tackle it in the GH4GM report and action plan "Making the Vision a Reality - ‘Doing Housing Differently’".
