The Council is taking a detailed look at Stockport’s current and future transport priorities as part of a review of the 2001 South East Manchester Multi-Modal (SEMMM) Strategy.
To help guide the updated SEMMM strategy, the Council is asking residents to join the conversation and let us know what they think the current transport issues are across the borough and how we should address them.
Councillor Kate Butler, Stockport Council’s Cabinet Member for Economy & Regeneration, said:
“Being able to travel between where we live, work, study and have fun is a major factor in our quality of life and health. That’s why we need to find ways to improve the efficiency and capacity of transport networks and to get more people using public transport, cycling and walking more. We really want and need views from everyone, so I’d urge all local communities to take part.”
