Greater Manchester Council elections 1973 – 1985

by Iain Roberts on 14 November, 2010

Most people remember the Greater London Council (GLC), abolished by Maggie Thatcher back in the 1980s.  Greater Manchester had one too.  When it was abolished in 1985, the ten local authorities in the area started working together.

Today we have AGMA – the Association of Greater Manchester Authorities.  And, in almost a full circle, we’re soon to get a new “City Region” – like a separate authority for Greater Manchester, covering transport, waste, policing, the fire service, education, training and inward investment – but not directly elected (whether that’s the right thing we’ll leave for another day).

Here  are the election results for the Greater Manchester Council seats that fell inside the Stockport area.
