Stockport and Stockport Council.

Our elected Councillors represent residents on Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council sitting on Full Council, Local Area Council and various Scrutiny Committees. Full Council regularly meet at Stockport Town Hall, designed by Sir Alfred Brumwell Thomas. The hall includes a ballroom which contains the Wurlitzer theatre pipe organ formerly installed in the Paramount and later Odeon Theater in Manchester. The war memorial and art gallery are on Greek Street, opposite the town hall. 

Stockport's most visible landmark is its Viaduct standing at 111 feet (34 m) high, and carries four railway tracks over the River Mersey on the line to Manchester Piccadilly. The viaduct built of 11,000,000 bricks, a major feat of Victorian engineering, was completed in 21 months at a cost of £70,000.The structure is Grade II* listed.

Beside the M60 motorway is the Stockport Pyramid, a distinctive structure designed by Christopher Denny from Michael Hyde and Associates. It has a steel frame covered with mostly blue glass and clear glass paneling at the apex and was intended to be the signature building for a much larger development planned in 1987. Construction began in the early 1990s and it was completed in 1992.
