Jobs, growth & the economy
Ensuring the success and prosperity of our communities has always been my number one priority. Unemployment in Cheadle constituency is now at a record low of only 1.4%.
We have a strong and robust local economy and, over the past ten years, I have supported many local companies to help attract extra resources and funding to our area.
I have also worked closely with businesses, councillors and MPs to create apprenticeships across Stockport which have given 11,450 young people a start in the workplace.
Stockport’s Lib Dem-led administration has frozen Council Tax for four out of the past five years, helping many local families in challenging financial circumstances as well as protecting front line services such as libraries.
