A new report from Greater Manchester Combined Authority shows that only 33 so-called ‘affordable rent homes’ have been secured through Section 106 agreements in the whole of Greater Manchester during 2015-16. Over the whole area, just 164 ‘affordable’ homes have been secured, 80% of which were home ownership.
