Thank you for your interest in Stockport. I am delighted that you are interested in the opportunity to lead Stockport into the future at this challenging but exciting time.

Stockport is a community of innovators, an attractive and vibrant borough, just ten minutes from Manchester. As a proud Stopfordian, I am passionate about Stockport and our many diverse communities who call it home. We are looking for an exceptional candidate who will put people at the heart of what we do, making sure the borough is the best it can be for our residents; tackling climate change as we strive to be carbon neutral by 2038, developing thriving communities, improving health inequalities, giving our young people the best start in life and improving prospects and arming our residents with digital skills.

We have made unprecedented investment in the borough in recent years and our £1bn regeneration programme is being delivered at pace, breathing new life into our town centre, providing new homes, creating jobs, attracting businesses and firmly putting Stockport on the map as a great place to live, work, play and connect.

Stockport is an ambitious borough. We have a strong leadership team and the right building blocks in place and I am confident we will continue to prosper. We are building a better and stronger future together.

Councillor Elise Wilson, Leader of the Council
