    To be genuinely sustainable, I think Manchester needs to adopt a more Steady State approach to growth, it needs to get it’s finger out with the Carbon Reduction Plan and it would be nice to see some strong leadership and lots more joined up sharing of skills and knowledge across the 32 wards, leading to a growing resilience amongst all citizens.
