Responding to the Resolution Foundation's report in to home ownership rates GM Mayor Tony Lloyd said;
“Today’s report from the Resolution Foundation should be a wake up call for the Government.
“Greater Manchester has been singled out as having the sharpest fall in home ownership across England. To reverse this trend we know that we have to build more homes and ensure a better mix of housing that enables all of our residents to find a home they can afford in an area where they want to live.
“In Greater Manchester we are taking action with the powers we have but more must be done by central Government to enable us to build the homes Greater Manchester needs now and in to the future.”
