Manchester City Council is the local governing authority for Greater Manchester, the joint second biggest city in Britain (level with Birmingham).

Providing and maintaining services essential to local Mancunians, Manchester City Council has functioned in one form or another for more than four centuries. Today it is a modern, dynamic authority, regularly granting new permits for postmodern architectural initiatives whilst promoting the cultural and cosmopolitan allure of the modern city.

Despite having a relatively poor record of council tax collection at circa 89% year by year, Manchester City Council continues to provide a good level of service to local residents.
