Our People Our Place – The Greater Manchester Strategy

This strategy sets out the collective ambition to make Greater Manchester one of the best places in the world.

It is a strategy for everyone in Greater Manchester – residents, the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector, businesses, and civic leaders. But the vision it sets out will only be achieved through new approaches which are shaped and driven by our communities themselves.

This is the third Greater Manchester Strategy, and it builds on the substantial progress made since the first was published in 2009 and the most recent refresh in 2013. Previous strategies have delivered a strong drive for economic growth. This strategy builds on that experience and increases the focus on ensuring that the people of Greater Manchester can all benefit from economic growth and the opportunities it brings throughout their lives. It has been updated to ensure that the course we are steering is the right one, based around the key elements of living well in Greater Manchester.
