Greater London Plan vs. Greater Manchester Plan

Compare the two plans for Manchester (1945 and 2021) in terms of their content and approach.

One of the most famous plans of all time is Sir Patrick Abercrombie’s Greater London Plan which was published in 1945. This was not the only plan published at the time; other cities, including Manchester, also published similar plans that year. These documents represented the cutting-edge planning thought in the UK at the end of World War II. Nearly 80 years later, in 2021, a new plan for Greater Manchester was adopted. Discuss the differences between the plans and focus on the theme of “housing.”
