Greater Manchester based Quorum is hosting a public consultation ahead of submitting an outline planning application for a new Bredbury Gateway flagship development creating more than 2,500 jobs and investing £80m in the local area.
The new Bredbury Gateway, on land next to Bredbury Industrial Estate, is set to supercharge the Stockport economy and provide a new destination that will attract innovative businesses to the Borough.
Quorum are holding a public exhibition to demonstrate their vision for Bredbury Gateway where interested parties will be able to view the plans, discuss the scheme with members of the development team, and provide feedback.
The public consultation event will take place this Thursday, 14th June between 2.30pm and 7.30pm at Stockport Sports Village in Woodley.
Paul Cook, director of Quorum, said:
“While Stockport has shown that it is open for business, there is a shortage of deliverable and sustainable sites for future strategic employment development in the Borough, which risks the area missing out on investment and job creation to elsewhere.
“Over the last decade, Greater Manchester has become a hotbed for new e-commerce, logistics and manufacturing schemes that have created thousands of highly skilled and well-paid jobs. Bredbury Gateway will strengthen Stockport’s foothold in these dynamic sectors and is a unique opportunity to create more exciting and rewarding career paths for the local population.”
£80m will be invested into delivering Bredbury Gateway, and the scheme is reported to boost the Stockport Economy by approximately £130.1m each year once open for business, being home to a range of businesses across the logistics, warehousing and manufacturing sectors.
In addition, a new pedestrian and cycle link, as well as a new car park will be delivered for Stockport Sports Village, addressing a long-term challenge of limited vehicle space for this community hub and enhancing its accessibility.
