The Future of Greater Manchester - speech text

At a special event on Monday 7 January, Mayor Andy Burnham, alongside Deputy Mayors Sir Richard Leese and Bev Hughes, and the leaders of Greater Manchester councils, set out a series of bold and far-reaching new housing and transport proposals that showcase the region as a confident, ambitious hub which places its people at its heart.

In his speech at 11 Portland Street, Manchester, Andy said: “We recognise that some of the policies we are announcing today imply significant change.

“That’s why we will continue to consult and listen as we take them forward.

“But the time has come to make decisions, stake out our course and make this next 20-year chapter in Greater Manchester’s story even more exciting than the last.”
