Make Stoke-on-Trent a greatworking city.
Our Mandate for Change to make Stoke-on-Trent a great working city includes supporting our businesses, boosting the local economy and making us a market leader in the green revolution.
When we launched our Red Carpet approach to inward investment, we mean business! We set up a single point of contact for investors, streamlined our planning process, offered tailored solutions to business growth, guidance to funding and access to supply chains, labour markets and networks.
We identified the number one priority as being jobs. Since then we've concentrated, quite rightly, on attracting inward investment. This is the best way to get a lot of jobs into an area in a relatively short period of time. It's also a really good way of diversifying the employment opportunities in the city.
Raising aspiration and improving attainment for all our children is a high priority. Supporting independence remains one of our highest priorities, actively contributing to promoting healthy lives across the city focusing on improving the health of the workforce and of those seeking to work, increasing life expectancy and reducing health inequalities.
Making sure that the city is a great place to live means that our housing stock has to be fit for purpose.
