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 Together - our transformation programme putting people at the centre of health and social care services in the Borough. This is by changing the way that social workers, mental health services, GPs and the Hospital work with our communities

  • 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
