To consider a joint report of the Cabinet Members for Economy & Regeneration and for Sustainable Stockport.

 

(Note: the report contains information ‘not for publication’ in its appendix that has been circulated to cabinet members only)

 

The Council’s ambition to deliver new homes, increase the long-term viability of the town centre, and regenerate Stockport’s Town Centre West area has led to the creation of a comprehensive Strategic Regeneration Framework for the area which will be delivered by the newly formed Stockport Mayoral Development Corporation.

 

To ensure that there is appropriate democratically accountable oversight and influence over the MDC, the Council and Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) have both formally agreed that the MDC will produce a Strategic Business Plan that specifies what activity the MDC will undertake and that that business plan will be submitted to the Council and GMCA for approval.

 

A Strategic Business Plan covering the period from the MDC’s creation to the end of the 2019/20 financial year was endorsed, subject to GMCA and Stockport Council approval, at the first meeting of the MDC Board on 9 September.  It was then approved by GMCA at its meeting on 27 September.

 

This report recommends that Cabinet approve the MDC’s Strategic Business Plan which will then formally guide the MDC’s activity and act as the document against which the MDC’s effectiveness can be measured.

 

Cabinet is recommended to approve the full MDC Strategic Business Plan attached at the confidential Appendix A for the period until end-March 2020.
