Residents and businesses in Heald Green and Bramhall are being invited to have their say on the proposed improvements in both areas.

As well as making it easier for motorists to travel around south east Manchester and east Cheshire, the new A6 to Manchester Airport Relief Road is going to improve district and local centres along the route by easing congestion and making them nicer places for everyone to visit and shop.

Stockport Council want to make sure that all the opportunities these improvements offer are felt by residents, shoppers and businesses.

Proposals have been put together about how we would like to invest in these areas, they range from improving public areas, installing new lighting to improving signage for visitors and providing better facilities for pedestrians and cyclists.

The locations for improvements were identified as part of the A6 to Manchester Airport Relief Road planning process.  Details of the proposed improvements for Bramhall and Finney Lane in Heald Green are now available online and we would like your views on these.

Information events are also being held giving you a chance to find out more about the proposals from the Stockport Council team and provide them with your comments.  The events are being held on:

  • Tuesday 4th July2017,  3 – 7pm at Heald Green Library
  • Thursday 6th July2017, 4 – 6.30pm at Bramhall Library
  • Tuesday 18th July 2017, 3 – 7pm at Heald Green Library
  • Thursday 20th July 2017, 4 – 6.30pm at Bramhall Library

The closing date for responses is Friday 21st July 2017.

Cllr Alex Ganotis, Leader of Stockport Council said “This is a great opportunity for local communities in Heald Green and Bramhall to have their say on improvements to their local centres.  I would urge everyone to get involved over the coming weeks.”

Work on the A6 to Manchester Airport Relief Road is due to be completed in spring 2018 with the improvement works taking place after this.
