Terraced_housing_and_tower_blocks_eccles_greater_manchester.png?profile=RESIZE_710xStudy calls for new council powers and help for workers in gig economy struggling to find homes

Manchester’s leaders should be given powers to cap private rents in expensive areas after house prices quadrupled in 20 years, with people in the “highly volatile” gig economy particularly struggling to find a home, a report has warned.

Of young renters across the wider region of Greater Manchester, 48% had to cut back on essentials to cover their housing costs, compared with 33% across England, according to research from the RSA (Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce) commissioned by One Manchester, a housing association.
