This report argues that Manchester's Northern Gateway project should offer mixed, affordable and age-appropriate housing and amenities. An equitable development plan should be developed, through community-led engagement, to ensure that the benefits of regeneration are shared among new and existing residents. It suggests that new ways of working with residents need to be adopted which go beyond existing forms of consultation and include more open-ended, sustained forms of collaboration.
This report aims to help set the UK on a clear path to achieve the government's goal "for everyone to have five extra years of healthy, independent life by 2035." It proposes policy and cross-sector collaboration to narrow the life expectancy gap between the richest and poorest.
