The Council’s bold vision for Stockport Town Centre and wider borough is embedded within the Strategic Regeneration Framework (“SRF”) which is intended to inspire, excite and engage with existing and future residents and businesses as well as developers and investors. It establishes a vision, masterplan and delivery strategy for how Stockport Town Centre West could be reshaped over the next 15-20 years as Greater Manchester’s newest, greenest and coolest affordable urban neighbourhood.

The SRF and supporting Supplementary Planning Document has been endorsed by the Council; and now represents a material consideration in reviewing and determining planning applications. At this early stage the masterplan is intended to demonstrate the scale of change and aid understanding of scale and massing, rather than prescribing the final form of development.
