Have your say on the future

9 Jan 2019 02:46

STOCKPORT Council is encouraging residents to have their say on a number of proposals in areas such as transport, street maintenance and libraries.

Some of the proposals come as the council looks to bridge a funding gap of £47m over the next four years as part of its 'Medium Term Financial Plan'

The local authority says the plan is needed because available financial resources are not enough to deal with increased demand for its services.

Council leader Alex Ganotis said: "We would like to encourage residents to get involved and have their say on proposed changes within a number of open and ongoing consultations.

"It's important we get our proposals right for the people of Stockport, and your input is really important to help us do so. Please take a look at our ongoing consultations and have your say on our future plans."

The current consultations, along with their closing dates, are:

Age Friendly Survey - Closes 19th December 2018

Stockport Local Assistance Scheme Consultation - Closes 21st December 2018

Admissions and Term Dates Consultation - Closes 31st December 2018.

Stockport Council's Approach to Fees and Charges Consultation - Closes 6th January 2019
