4343373046_a0708d3731.jpg?profile=RESIZE_710xIn an interview with Co-op News, Mr Burnham says the co-op sector could feed into the devolved region’s plans to build a new economy and go carbon neutral

After his keynote speech to Co-op Congress in June, Co-op News caught up with Greater Manchester’s Labour/Co-op mayor Andy Burnham to discuss the role of co-ops in his plans for the devolved region, and the work of the Co-operative Commission he has set up. With a new industrial strategy and an ambition to make the city region carbon-neutral by 2038, Mr Burnham wants co-ops to help drive the economic transition…

There have been cases of local authorities selling off valued public land and assets. Will the Co-operative Commission consider common ownership of such assets to protect them and use them in a way that adds social value?
