Who should attend?
Greater Manchester’s Plan for Homes,Jobs, and the Environment (the spatial framework) has been put together by Greater Manchester Combined Authority, which comprises the Mayor of Greater Manchester and the leaders of Greater Manchester’s ten local councils.
This plan is about providing the right homes, in the right places, for people across our city region. It’s about creating jobs and improving infrastructure to ensure the future prosperity of Greater Manchester.
The plan talks about jobs and homes, but it’s about so much more than bricks and mortar. It’s about reducing inequalities, improving the lives of our residents, and transforming Greater Manchester into the world-leading city-region we know it can be.
This conference will acknowledge that whilst quantity is important ofequal importance is quality.This conference will therefore concentrate on design quality, environmental issues and offsite solutions to allow us not only to deliver more homes but BETTER homes.
