Yes GMs savvy local authorities know how to work with the private sector and large financial insitutions in order to improve the lives, living conditions ,and environment for their citizens. It`s almost reached the point where they are falling over themselves to invest in the area, and no doubt the parts of GM that are still left behind will catch up soon .

Time for the Greater Manchester towns to start getting serious investment. No more messing about.

Manc city centre needs to start pedestrianising and addressing its blue and green space issues.

Two areas that will really benefit from big investment and are ‘sleeper areas’ for Manchester due to their locations and transport links. Lived in both for many years. This a very good thing.
