Small but mighty
Stoke-on-Trent is on a journey with a rapidly growing economy creating new jobs, delivering regeneration and housing growth. It is a city with a strong sense of civic pride and absolute commitment to delivering the best outcomes for our children and young people.
We are ambitious to grow, building on our industrial heritage, creating new communities, creating new jobs, attracting new businesses and investment. Over 1,000 new homes have been delivered in the city in 2019, 97% of which were developed on brownfield sites, we have a capital investment programme of over £700m, and in 2020 we agreed a 10-year masterplan for the city which includes a 10-acre East-West development site in the city centre – the largest site of its kind in the region, with exciting opportunities for a new hotel, new housing and a public transport hub.
In our Stronger Together Strategic Plan 2020-2024, we set out our strategic vision and priorities for Stoke-on-Trent City Council and the wider city. Stronger Together has been shaped by the political ambition of the City Council’s leadership, as well as the values and aims of the organisation. As such, it is as much a corporate plan for the council’s directorates and teams as it is a strategic blueprint for improving Stoke-on-Trent as a city.
Through our Stronger Together vision we will:
- Support vulnerable people in our communities to live their lives well
- Enable our residents to fulfil their potential
- Help businesses to thrive and make our city more prosperous
- Work with our communities to make them healthier, safer and more sustainable
- Ensure we are an innovative and commercial council, providing effective leadership to help transform outcomes

In order to help deliver our key strategic priorities we are currently looking to recruit to a key senior officer role, details of which are found on this site, alongside further information about our city and the council.
