Local residents are being invited to give their views at public consultation events as the Merseyway Redevelopment plans are revealed.
Plans to redevelop Merseyway Shopping Centre are moving forward with the announcement of two public consultation events.
The consultation events will focus on the first stage of the centre’s redevelopment – the refurbishment of Adlington Walk. Adlington Walk is a covered area of the centre that links off the main mall to Chestergate and the Old Town.
Local residents are invited to offer their views on the proposals, which include reconfiguring and rebranding Adlington Walk to create ‘best in class’ community amenity and welfare facilities for the Whole Town Centre, located in the heart of Merseyway.
Plans include a new ‘hotel lobby’ style entrance to the centre, a new stair and lift core, the refronting of existing retail to create a contemporary uniform appearance and public realm improvements that will improve the centre’s links to the historic core of Stockport and to the new transport interchange being constructed with TfGM (due for completion in 2022).
Proposed facilities include a soft play space, new seating, buggy stores, high-grade toilets, parent and child facilities and a multi faith prayer room.
The drop-in consultation events will take place on Wednesday 22 May and Friday 24 May from 10am to 4pm in Arden Walk at Merseyway, with visitors encouraged to complete a questionnaire to share their views.
Representatives from Stockport Council, asset managers CBRE, architects AEW and Merseyway will be on hand to introduce the plans and answer any questions in relation to the proposed development.
