Consultations and surveys Our Manchester 2025–2035 survey: The city’s future, shaped by you

Help create a new ten-year vision for our city – one that takes us from 2025 to 2035.

Everyone who lives, learns, works, visits or does business here has a say.

Manchester’s come a long way in the last ten years. The Our Manchester Strategy, for the decade from 2015 to 2025, grew from ambitious hopes for the city. In 2015, we asked people to imagine their dream Manchester. The whole city was asked to shape the themes and priorities for the Our Manchester Strategy. Equality, inclusion and sustainability runs right through them.  

The people of Manchester achieved a lot and we’re growing towards that vision of a world-class city. We’re known for our sport, science, creativity, tolerance and warm welcome. This growing international standing is boosting our local economy too. And we’re outgrowing every other UK city.

But with setbacks like Covid and the cost-of-living crisis hitting so many, so hard, there’s still a lot to do. Our next ten-year plan for Manchester must tackle gaps in health, wealth and opportunity. 

What do you want to be better by 2035?

As we start to develop the next Our Manchester Strategy, we need to listen to you. We need to know your hopes for Manchester and the areas where you live or work. Our new vision, our city’s future, must be shaped by you – every resident, family, business and neighbourhood.

Together, we must focus our efforts for the next ten years.

Invest ten minutes of your time to be part of the new plan for Manchester.

Tell us about the things, people and places that matter to you.

The survey will close on 31 May 2024
