A £1bn investment programme is driving Stockport’s great leap forward. Stockport’s largest commercial landlord, Orbit Developments, is hosting an event in association with The Business Desk to look at what’s next for the town?
Stockport has undergone an impressive resurgence over the past 5 years with unquestionable success thanks to the confidence of local businesses and the local authority choosing to invest in the area.
A record number of businesses are now being attracted to and choosing Stockport over Manchester city centre as their preferred place to relocate their office to and the increased confidence has led to investment from commercial property landlords refurbishing office space to meet the increased demand.
The arrival of a brand-new leisure destination Redrock, transformation of the gateway to the town centre and arrival of brand-new office space at Stockport Exchange and the introduction of a Business Improvement District via Totally Stockport have all contributed to the economic revival.
However, the change can’t stop now. What’s next for Stockport to keep the momentum of positive change going?
Hosted by Orbit Developments and in association with The Business Desk, this breakfast event will see Michael Ribbeck, editor of Business News North West, leading a panel of influential speakers from successful companies and bodies based in Stockport, to discuss the changes that have taken place and what’s next for Stockport.
What do people and businesses want to see in the town centre and how can we make this happen?
Businesses are invited to join in at No 1 St Peters Square on Thursday 28th February, 8am – 10am for an interesting debate as well as a bite to eat and opportunity to network with local businesses.
