22/01/2024 - Draft Council Plan 2024-2027

The Stockport Council Plan 2024-2027 is our main strategic document for the council. It describes the key role the council plays in supporting the borough, through the provision and delivery of services that are essential to everyday life. The Plan also outlines our four big ambitions for the upcoming years, that will create opportunities for everyone within the borough.

 

The Council Plan accompanies the budget. It is a public-facing summary document that sits above annual Portfolio Agreements and complements the One Stockport Borough Plan. It is aligned with our medium-term financial plan and incorporates our key transformation activity.


The Plan explains that we have big ambitions for our Borough and our people, but we want to challenge ourselves to reach further to achieve our ambition of being the very best we can be. We know we are on the right track and our ambitions and priorities remain the right ones. This Council Plan, therefore, builds on our existing ambitions and steps up the pace of change and delivery.


The Plan is intentionally longer term and places transformation at the heart of our ambitions. Providing efficient and effective services continues to be at the very core of our Plan; and the Plan builds on the four ‘Big Ambitions’ and two cross cutting themes set out in the Council Plan 2023/4.

Wards affected: (All Wards);

Lead officer: Kathryn Rees

Notice of decision: 22/01/2024

This decision will be taken under urgency procedures.

Reason for urgency:
The Council Plan is the main strategic document for the council and articulates its ambitions. As such, it needs to be read alongside the budget documents which are due to be considered by the Cabinet on 30 January 2024 and the Council Meeting on 22 February 2024. As the budget must be adopted by the Council within a strict statutory timescale, it would not be possible to delay consideration of the Council Plan.
