Tameside Council and Tameside and Glossop CCG
Tameside Borough Council is embarking on a programme of radical change to meet the challenges of modern local government, public service reform and integrated health/social care. Fast paced improvement across the Council and the Tameside and Glossop CCG is being driven by a highly motivated, integrated leadership team, who are pushing the boundaries to dramatically change culture, modernise services and identify innovative ways to manage service demand.
Our Director of Growth has undertaken a review of the directorate’s services and is restructuring to align the resources with the Councils priorities.
Over the next few years a brand new garden village of 2,350 homes at Godley Green, a huge employment site at Ashton Moss and a business quarter will come to fruition in the borough. There are also plans to regenerate five town centres, bring forward major investment in infrastructure, develop the education estate, and deliver the aspirations of the Councils Strategic Asset Management Plan to utilise the Councils Land and Property to achieve Employment, Economic Growth and Housing.
Tameside Council’s overriding challenge is to guide these developments in a way that meets its aspiration to drive inclusive growth that benefits all of its diverse communities.
A new Local Plan will provide an opportunity to deliver high quality, sustainable developments that will really make an impact for current and future generations.
There are also schools and the corporate operational and commercial estates to build and maintain a Climate Change Emergency and the effects of Covid on the economy and the way we work to address.
‘It’s an exciting period for Tameside, there’s so much happening. That is why we think this is an exciting opportunity to join a new team with an ambitious and bold work programme – it is a great time to join us.
