Who we are

Who we are

The GMCA is made up of the ten Greater Manchester councils who work with other local services to improve the city-region.

What we do

What we do

Greater Manchester is one of the country's most successful city-regions. Our vision is to make it one of the best in the world. We're getting there through a combination of economic growth, and the reform of public services.

The Mayor

The Mayor

Greater Manchester is a 'devolved' city-region with new powers and accountability that bring decision-making closer to local people. Our new mayor will be elected by all the region's voters in 2017. We have an 'interim' mayor until then.

Devolution

Devolution

Decisions made locally can better meet the needs and aspirations of people in the area. Our record of council co-operation, and the creation of the GMCA, has helped us lead the way on city-region devolution.
