The Council & democracy Our Manchester: a liveable and low carbon city

We'll have broad base of good jobs and diverse, good quality housing in clean, safe, attractive and cohesive neighbourhoods. 

We'll encourage walking, cycling and public transport with more investment in the infrastructure needed. 

We'll be a cleaner, litter-free city, recycling more, with better-quality parks, green spaces and waterways. 

We will harness technology to improve the city’s liveability, sustainability and connectivity.

We’ll invest in culture and sport – for residents' benefit and to increase the city’s international attractiveness.

Manchester people will be proud of their cultural institutions which will reflect and celebrate diversity and engage a broad audience.

Our artistic and creative community will benefit from more commissioning, production and performances.

We will have more volunteering and by 2050 we will be a one hundred percent clean-energy city, encouraging a low-carbon culture, with our communities are protected from a changing climate.
