Our Board

You can find out more information about what Stockport Homes’ Board is, what they do and how to become a Board member. You can also find out more about our Board members on our meet the Board page..

  • 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 is made up of three customers, two co-optee members and four independent members who all bring different knowledge and experience to the organisation. To find out more about who the Board are, see the Meet the Board page.

    The Chair is elected every year by the Board, and any Board member can stand for this role. Robin Burman is currently the Chair of our Board, and joined us on 26 September 2016.

  • Impact of Board decisions

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

    • Driving improvements in performance which has resulted in Stockport Council being rated as the top local authority for housing improvement and performance.
    • Supporting and approving proposals to build more homes to rent and buy in Stockport.
    • Agreeing how much is invested to maintain and improve housing.
  • Main duties

    The main duties of the Board are conducted through regular Board and Sub-Group meetings. The Board meets four times a year, and each Sub-Group meets 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.

    If you would like to see any board papers please contact
