Councillor Kate Butler, Stockport Council’s Cabinet Member for Economy and Regeneration, said:
“Over the next two years we are committed to have an open and transparent discussion with Stockport residents and businesses regarding what land is needed to accommodate the homes, jobs, new infrastructure and local facilities we need from now until 2035.
“We understand that the issues in one area of the borough may not be the same as in others, so we want to hear from local communities about the place they live – what works, what doesn’t, what they need and what they’d like to protect.
“To enable us to deliver the best possible plan we need and want your views. We’d also like to make clear that no final decisions will be made until we have reviewed all consultation feedback.”
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.
