Homes and property Manchester housing strategy

Our principles

  1. New Homes - With a growing population and changing lifestyles we need to provide additional homes that are affordable for our residents, in the right place, and of the right quality to meet future demand
  2. Pathways to home ownership - Providing homes that people can afford encourages them to play a bigger role in the city's economy
  3. A diverse and high-quality market rental sector - The private rented sector makes an important contribution to the city's housing, provided it is managed well
  4. Making best use of all our homes - We cannot allow homes to stay empty while housing is in short supply, and must use our social rented stock to meet need
  5. A strong sense of place - People need well designed and managed environment to achieve their full potential
  6. Green homes - green neighbourhoods - Energy efficiency is good for the city and can save households money and make people healthier 
  7. Informed choice for all - People need information and advice so they can take responsibility for their own housing and employment
  8. Contributing to health and wellbeing - A good well managed home is essential if people are to meet their full potential to be healthier, happier and wealthier
  9. Enabling housing services for those households most at risk - There will be support for vulnerable households that need help to manage their housing journey
  10. Contribution rewarded - There will be wider choices for those who raise their aspirations
