Thirty-two areas across Tameside are receiving a star rating as part of a plan to tackle anti-social behaviour, crime and unemployment. Social landlord New Charter Housing is rating neighbourhoods from three to five stars with each area having its own plan to improve the locality. The housing association said it is the first in Greater Manchester to adopt this approach.
Tameside star ratings:
Five stars - The neighbourhood is popular offering a good quality of life and access to good services. The main aim is to make it sustainable.
Four stars - The neighbourhood is a good place to live but experiences some problems that affect the quality of life. The main aim is to identify the specific issues to improve it.
Three stars - The neighbourhood has the potential to be a great place but is experiencing a number of issues affecting the overall quality of life.
