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.

 

This plan is the second full year plan following last year’s five year Strategic Business Plan approved by Cabinet on 23rd June 2020 and the interim Strategic Business Plan covering the period from the MDC’s creation to the end of the 2019/20 financial year approved by Cabinet on 12th November 2019.
