Stockport Local Plan Drop-in Events

by Iain Roberts on 6 September, 2017

From the Council:

Join the conversation about the Local Plan

The Council is inviting residents to join the conversation on the Stockport Local Plan, a plan for the future of the borough through to 2035.

There are big challenges and opportunities facing the borough. People are concerned about housing, both in terms of numbers and where they are built. We also know that while Stockport is a well-connected place, our roads are often very congested.

It’s not just about housing, jobs and transport though. People rely on services such as health, education, shops and enjoying our green places and spaces.

The Local Plan will set the rules for development and land uses which will have an impact on the way we live and work in the future.

You can take part in the consultation by coming along to one of our public drop-in events or by responding online.

Upcoming events:
Heatons & Reddish Area, Wednesday 13th September from 6pm to 8.30pm at Life Leisure Houldsworth Village, Broadstone Road, Stockport, SK5 7AT;
Werneth Area, Wednesday 13th September from 6pm to 8.30pm at Werneth School, Harrytown, Stockport, SK6 3BX;
Bramhall & Cheadle Hulme South Area, Saturday 16th September from 10am to 12.30pm at St Michaels Church Hall, St Michaels Avenue, Stockport, SK7 2PG;
Stepping Hill Area, Monday 25th September From 6pm to 8.30pm at Hazel Grove Civic Hall, London Road, Stockport, SK7 4DF;
Cheadle Area, Thursday 28th September From 6pm to 8.30pm at Kingsway School, Foxland Road, Stockport, SK8 4QX.

At these events, residents will also be able to learn more about the current and future transport priorities that are part of a review of the 2001 South East Manchester Multi-Modal (SEMMM) Strategy.

Residents will also have the opportunity to let us know what they think the current transport issues are across the borough and how we should address them.

The online consultation is available at www.stockport.gov.uk/localplan. It will run until 8th October 2017.

    I hope this more than a public relations exercise and the council act on public opinion.

      We shall see. As local Lib Dem councillors we’ve been publicising the issues and asking people to contribute over the last few weeks. We’ll carry on doing that, and we’ll be putting in a Lib Dem submission that draws on what residents have told us.
