Annual Council Meeting confirms Liberal Democrats to continue leading in Stockport!

Following a strong performance in the Local Elections earlier this month, the Annual Council meeting this afternoon confirmed that the Liberal Democrats will continue to lead Stockport Council for the year ahead.

At those elections, the Lib Dems were successful in defending every seat they already held whilst also making 2 gains from Labour, leaving them just 1 short of majority control of the council.

Cllr Mark Hunter, confirmed as remaining the Leader of the Council until May 2026, said:

“It was an honour to be confirmed once again as Leader of the Council. Work has continued since the elections to drive things forward, making sure residents gain the full benefits of the feel-good factor that’s everywhere in our borough right now.

“Having recently been awarded The Sunday Times ‘best place to live in the North West’, we are determined to ensure that we make the most of this time in the spotlight to push forward with the further regeneration and development of the place we all call home.  The £1bn regeneration of the town centre, including the new Viaduct Park and transport interchange, will be followed shortly by the launch of the consultation on a Local Plan for Stockport, delivering the right homes in the right places whilst protecting our green belt.

“The positive vision we have for Stockport has been fully supported by residents at the polling stations and we’re looking forward to repaying their faith in the coming months and years.”
