GMCA

In July 2014 Greater Manchester secured £476.7m from the Government’s Local Growth Fund in response to our Growth and Reform Plan which gives the region access to funding as well as freedoms and flexibilities to help deliver our strategic ambitions.

It focuses on five key priorities:  

  1. Securing Greater Manchester and the North West’s place as a major centre for Life Sciences
  2. Enhancing further education facilities to create more apprenticeships and maximise skills investment
  3. Major investment in public transport and highways
  4. Reforming public services so that they reduce duplication and are designed around the needs of residents
  5. Providing effective business support services
