Stockport Council is “an impressive organisation that works closely with local partners”

Speaking on the publication of the Local Government Association’s report into the recent Corporate Peer Challenge, Cllr Mark Hunter, Leader of the Council and of the Lib Dems at Stockport Town Hall, said: “In just the first few months of our new administration we sought an external assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the council, so that we would know where our strengths lie and where to target effort towards improvement.

“I am delighted that the week-long, independent assessment concluded that Stockport Council is in excellent shape. They describe us as an impressive organisation that works closely with local partners, carrying out a strong place-shaping and leadership role, delivering high performing services with strong financial management and in the interests of our residents. They highlighted our strong, collaborative culture and the strong and trusting relationships across councillors and officers, all at a time when no one party has overall control.

“These are things that have been built up over many years and cannot be taken for granted. With all-out elections in May there will be many new faces in the council chamber and many experienced members will be stepping down. I and my colleagues will ensure that we do everything we can to continue to deliver a bright future for our town and provide the highest quality services that our carefully managed finances allow.”
