Council Chamber

Elected representatives

Bury Metropolitan Borough Council is a rapidly improving Council, playing its part in a community, making its name in Greater Manchester and in the North West.

We have re-invented ourselves and have the following ambitions for our area:

  • The place to live in Greater Manchester
  • Area where people feel safe and secure
  • Healthiest borough in the North West
  • Popular visitor destination
  • Premier retail town in the north of Greater Manchester
  • Centre of excellence for education and training in the North West
  • Each township thriving
  • Area with first class services
  • Quality jobs for Bury people

Some of these ambitions are about doing what we do even better, for example an outstanding education and further education provision, whilst others are about improving in areas where we do not do so well, health outcomes being a primary example. We want to make the Bury experience better for our residents, visitors and those who work here.

Council constitution

The council constitution sets out how the council operates, how decisions are made and how the procedures which are followed to ensure that these are efficient, transparent and accountable to local people. Some of these processes are required by law, while others are a matter for the council to choose. Please note that the Constitution is currently being updated to incorporate revised information, including the Health and Wellbeing Board. The new version will be available shortly.
