Addressing the financial plan

1. Overview

The Executive is proposing a two year programme to continue to reduce spending. It's also to prepare for the council to be financially self-reliant in the coming years, when funding from the central government will cease.

This builds on the significant transformation, investment and reforms the council is well underway with:

  • Stockport Family - creating new teams of staff across the Borough to make life better for children and families who need our support most

  • the growth and investment in the borough which is now taking shape. It's transforming the skyline to bring new jobs and homes to the borough

  • the ambitious Digital by Design programme which is making progress. It has recently launched a new 'beta' website which is work in progress at the moment whilst we gather feedback on its content, look and feel
