Greater Manchester strikes trailblazing new devolution deal

Statement from Cllr Mark Hunter, Leader of Stockport Council

“Decisions that will make a difference to the lives of local people can now be made locally, which is welcome news and gives Greater Manchester more control of what happens in our region, including Stockport.

"Giving local leaders the power and influence to make important decisions like this in areas they know best, will ensure local people are at the heart of this agenda.”
