Our £11.5 billion Affordable Homes Programme will deliver up to 180,000 homes (should economic conditions allow) - half of which will be for affordable and social rent. £715 million has been allocated to the North West, to deliver over 14,000 affordable homes.

Statistics are not available at Constituency level, but through the 2016-23 Affordable Homes Programme we have allocated over £242 million for affordable housing delivering over 7,000 affordable homes, including over 3,800 homes for affordable and social rent in Greater Manchester.
