Greater Manchester mayoral policy briefing

(7 April 2017)

Policy@Manchester has released an online mayoral policy briefing ahead of Greater Manchester electing its first metro mayor on 4 May 2017. 

The team has drawn on the expertise of our academics and external partners to develop some key recommendations and challenges for whoever is elected next month. 

The briefing focuses on five themes which have been identified as the key policy areas for the election, based on the candidates’ manifestos and the Manchester Evening News’ survey of over 10,000 residents in Greater Manchester. The themes are:

  • health and social care;
  • housing;
  • jobs;
  • inclusivity;
  • transport.

Policy@Manchester is sending all of the candidates a copy of this briefing, inviting them to submit their responses to the points raised and their commitments on the issues, which will be collated and published before the election.
