Stockport Labour's Covid Recovery Budget 2021/22

Councils nationwide have lost £15bn in government funding since 2010. But we recognise how hard people have been hit by COVID.
That's why our COVID recovery budget has the third lowest rise in Council Tax in the North West and is investing in jobs and services, not cutting them.
Council Tax is regressive and unfair. The government need to fund councils properly instead of asking residents to keep coughing up to plug the gaps.

Stockport Labour’s Covid Recovery Budget announced.

  • Focus on Economic Recovery; Investment in Town centre development, affordable house building, school provision, walking and cycling schemes and a district centre covid recovery fund.
  • Support for our Communities; Funding to enable digital inclusion, increasing Open+ provision in our libraries, funding for extra mental health support and reducing health inequalities, increase Youth Services capacity to tackle ASB and a proposal for a new Hopes Carr/Covid memorial.
  • Tackling Climate Change; Funding for Solar PV installation, Electronic Vehicle infrastructure, orchards and tree planting and an investment in play areas, formal sports provision and maintenance.
