Greater Manchester is proud of its achievements in recent years,
but we still need levelling up.

Greater Manchester’s Levelling Up Deal is a serious, positive offer to Government which will deliver a London-style transport network with affordable London-level fares, accelerating our plans for a net zero future with better, greener homes and communities: and better jobs and skills.

Pride in places across Greater Manchester’s 10 boroughs is driving how we rethink their role as attractive places to live, work and set up a business – moving us towards zero-carbon transport system linked to zero-carbon homes.

If Government supports us with the right powers and funding, our Levelling Up Deal would:

  • Deliver a London-style transport network with affordable London-level fares, moving us towards a zero carbon transport system
  • Remove one million tonnes of carbon from GM’s economy
  • Create attractive places to live, work and set up a business
  • Create opportunities for people to retrain, get the skills they need and create jobs right across Greater Manchester
  • Create a ‘Golden Triangle’ of innovation excellence within the towns and cities of the North, to drive UK growth

Greater Manchester has led the way on English devolution and we have a strong record of delivery and collaboration.

Our Deal could be a model for Levelling Up and Net-Zero delivery for the whole country. We want a real partnership between Greater Manchester and Government with clear responsibilities and proper accountability for local leaders.

With support, we’re ready to build a better Greater Manchester and in turn a Greater Britain.
