Website Address:

More than 17,000 people live in Manchester city centre. It’s also home to some of the best shopping, theatre and nightlife in the country, making for a diverse and exciting place to live and work – both for residents and the 7 million people of the Greater Manchester area.

The Council's aims and objectives

The Mancunian qualities of innovation, hard work and enterprise made Manchester the first modern city and placed it at the heart of the industrial world. But during the 20th century, the decline in industry led people to leave in search of work elsewhere.

Nevertheless, the originality and creative heart and soul of Manchester have inspired a successful reinvention over the past 20 years. World-class sports facilities, expanding service industries and thriving universities brought new money and new jobs to Manchester. This economic growth has been led by one of the highest rates of private sector growth over the past 15 years and the creation of over 50,000 jobs across the city. However, in spite of this renewed success and pride, Manchester is still tackling social problems left by 40-50 years of economic decline.

As a Council our objective is to support the delivery of Manchester’s Community Strategy through the Manchester Partnership. The Community Strategy was refreshed during 2012/13, reaffirming our vision of Manchester as a world class city as competitive as the best international cities;

- that stands out as enterprising, creative and industrious
- with highly skilled and motivated people
- living in successful neighbourhoods whose prosperity is environmentally sustainable
- where all our residents can meet their full potential, are valued and secure

The refreshed strategy sets out how this vision will be achieved by focusing on three areas: Growth, People and Place.
