Council Leader thanks all council members and officers who supported recent LGA Peer Review

Stockport Council recently hosted a team of senior councillors and officers on behalf of the Local Government Association (LGA), who had been invited to conduct a “Peer Review” into the way the council operates and works with partners. This concluded on 4th November.

Speaking after receiving the initial report back from the review team, Cllr Mark Hunter, Leader of the Council and of the Liberal Democrats at Stockport Town Hall, said: “I was pleased to welcome senior colleagues from across the country as part of our recent LGA Peer Review and show them how well Stockport Council operates. It is always useful to have an independent assessment of our performance and progress.

“As they undertook their review they met with councillors of all parties and with our senior officers, as well as with representatives of our partner organisations, and I want to say a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who was involved in helping to achieve a successful outcome.

“Whilst we await the formal verdict in the final report, we have been given the initial findings and these give me confidence that the council is heading in the right direction and is led by a strong team, determined to make the most of the opportunities open to us, whilst also tackling the risks and challenges we will face in the future. ”
