Exploring public views on the Greater Manchester Combined Authority

Dec 2, 2016

Enventure Research will soon be undertaking a survey with members of the public across Greater Manchester focusing on the branding of the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA).


The GMCA is made up of ten local authority areas (Bolton, Bury, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford and Wigan) which have worked together voluntarily for many years on issues that affect everyone in the region, such as transport, regeneration and the attraction of investment. These local authorities now have a formalised relationship through the GMCA.


As part of its commitment to the partnership, the GMCA wishes to conduct a survey with members of the public which covers eight main topic areas; transport, housing and planning, health and social care, police and crime, business and investment, public service reforming, skills and employment and energy efficiency and low carbon. The findings from the survey will support the GMCA in refreshing its strategy for Greater Manchester’s future success.


The survey will be conducted face-to-face by Enventure Research’s experienced interviewers during December 2016. Fifty interviews will be completed in each local authority area, totalling 500 interviews overall. Quotas will be set on age, gender and ethnicity to ensure a representative sample is achieved. Following completion of the fieldwork, Enventure Research will undertake detailed analysis of all survey data, producing a comprehensive research report to support the further development of GMCA’s strategy.
