The Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, has launched a new initiative to regenerate town centres across the City.

The move reflects a new approach to planning and development, moving away from the "developer-led, green-field first approach of the past".

The Town Centre Challenge invites all councils across Greater Manchester to nominate a town to be part of the initiative.

The Mayor, working with each council, will bring together housing providers, public and private landowners, developers, community groups and other key stakeholders in a concerted effort to support local councils to unlock the potential in town centres, particularly to deliver viable housing markets and sustainable communities.

It is hoped that the initiative will be supported by a new housing deal that is under discussion between the Greater Manchester Combined Authority and the Government.
