The Greater Manchester housing package supports the government’s brownfield first policy as well as helping small and medium size builders to build out small sites.

The government will supply a package of up to £68.25 million in addition to taking forward key Housing Infrastructure Fund (HIF) forward funding bids through to co-development stage.

The package will help the Mayor to deliver his ambitious plans for more homes across Greater Manchester; delivering 227,200 homes by 2035 backed up by Greater Manchester’s Spatial Framework and local plans.

Under ambitious plans, the package ensures that Greater Manchester will be able to capitalise on opportunities presented by large scale transport investment in the area, providing the types of high quality homes people want to live in and boosting economic growth across the Northern Powerhouse.
