Business Overview

Stockport is one of the North West’s leading and most successful business locations. Offering an exceptional workforce, first class connectivity, wonderful countryside on the doorstep and excellent education, the opportunities on offer for companies and residents in Stockport are undisputed.

Whilst Stockport is already a great place to live, work and visit, the Council is not content to stop here and is building on this to create more jobs and opportunities for all. Over £1 billion is being invested by Stockport Council and its partners into a range of ambitious projects launched across the borough which will see Stockport build on its strengths and grow. These projects will see;

•  Stockport town centre transformed
•  Local transport networks improved, making it easier to get in and around Stockport,
bringing jobs and opportunities closer
•  New housing developments built, ensuring that homes are available that meet the needs
and aspirations of all residents
•  Developments taking place to ensure that Stockport can continue to build its position
as a key business location
