Greater Manchester Natural Capital Group: GMSF Consultation Event
The city region has ambitious targets to meet: 230,000 new homes and 200,000 new jobs over the next twenty years to house and sustain our growing population.
But a more prosperous Greater Manchester, with an increased quality of life for its citizens, is only possible through sustainable development – and, of course, crucial to this is a thriving ecological network of well-managed, well-loved natural space and green infrastructure.
You can join the Greater Manchester Natural Capital Group at this event on Wednesday 30th November 2016 from 10.00 – 13.00 at Manchester Town Hall, Manchester, M60 2LA
