Speakers from the Greater Manchester and Liverpool City Region Combined Authorities, and Warrington, Salford and Lancashire councils, will discuss what makes a successful partnership with the private sector at Meet the Authorities later this month.
Greater Manchester leaders and residents of at-risk buildings have said that the Government’s pledge of £200m to replace ACM cladding on private buildings stops short of addressing the problems they face.
Following local elections where the leading Conservative group lost control of the council for the first time in its history, Cllr Rachel Bailey has announced she will step down as leader in the coming weeks.
While Labour's overall hold across the region didn't change dramatically, there were some shifts in its control, with key battlegrounds in Trafford, Bolton, Stockport, and Wirral. Liverpool remained Labour-led, however Mayor Joe Anderson came under fire.
