What is the Board?

The Board of Directors are responsible for managing Stockport Homes, meaning that they set the strategic direction of the company and monitor our performance. 

Alongside this they set our budgets and approve strategies. The Board does not get involved in the day-to-day running of the organisation.  

The Board’s decision-making has a real impact on how we deliver services to customers, for example: 

  • Driving improvements in performance  
  • Supporting and approving proposals to build more homes in Stockport  
  • Agreeing how much is invested to maintain and improve housing  

To find out more about who the Board are, see the Meet the Board page. 

Board meetings

The main duties of the Board are conducted through regular Board and Committee meetings. The Board and Committees meet four times a year. 

Board members receive a set of papers a week in advance of meetings and are expected to read the reports and consider the main issues. They then come to the Board meeting with questions, comments and suggestions about proposals and reports. All meetings are open to the public, but you must let us know in advance if you plan to attend. Please contact the Governance Team for details of Board meetings dates.
