Locating in Stockport

1. Overview

From its prime location Stockport has become one of the North West’s leading and most successful business locations.

Offering a highly skilled workforce, exceptional connectivity, excellent education as well as a quality of life that is sought after by many, businesses in Stockport have consistently prospered and the borough has proven to be increasingly attractive for employers across many sectors.

To build on the town's strengths, Stockport Council and its partners are currently investing £1 billion into the borough through the ambitious Investing in Growth programme. This will see new developments taking place across the town; transport links further improved and our town transformed. Work on many of the projects has begun and you can find out more by visiting the Investing in Growth webpages.

The combination of the town's strengths and our regeneration work mean that Stockport truly is a great place to live, work and visit.
