New homes to tackle 'housing crisis'
« on: 22:19:44, 06/01/19 »

More than 50,000 affordable homes will be built in Greater Manchester by 2038 under new plans to tackle the region's "housing crisis".

The revised plans come after huge protests over a previous proposal for 225,000 new properties.

Mayor Andy Burnham said 30,000 of the 50,000 new homes would be social housing.

He also announced a number of transport plans, including the expansion of the Metrolink tram system.

Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) has agreed to support the house-building using surpluses from its 300m Housing Investment Loan Fund.
