Devolution is coming to Greater Manchester – or is it? The government has imposed a ‘super mayor’ to rule over a combined authority and what is clear is the absence of democracy in the process. This is the case both in the way the original decision was made as well as how the new structure is planned to work.
The People’s Plan for Manchester is gathering people’s views about a range of issues that reflect what voters actually want. This is your opportunity to discuss what a democratic Manchester should look like and help shape the People’s Plan.
After some short introductions, the event will break into groups around tables to probe the issues in more detail and to give everyone a chance to speak and take part.
