The Council and democracy Our vision for Manchester in 2025


Our vision is for Manchester to be in the top flight of world-class cities by 2025, when the city will:

  • have a competitive, dynamic and sustainable economy that draws on our distinctive strengths in science, advanced manufacturing, culture, and creative and digital business – cultivating and encouraging new ideas
  • possess highly skilled, enterprising and industrious people
  • be connected, internationally and within the UK
  • play its full part in limiting the impacts of climate change
  • be a place where residents from all backgrounds feel safe, can aspire, succeed and live well
  • be clean, attractive, culturally rich, outward-looking and welcoming.

The task we've set ourselves is challenging. It will take hard work, collaboration, energy and commitment to achieve our vision. But Manchester is a city that gets things done. We will combine our efforts to deliver our priorities.

We’ll be tracking progress of the main features of the strategy year-on-year in the ‘State of the City’ report.
