SEMMMS Strategy

The South East Manchester Multi-Modal Strategy is a 20 year strategy covering an area to the south east of Manchester including parts of Cheshire East, Derbyshire, Stockport and Tameside local authority areas.

In Spring 2001 the South East Manchester Multi-Modal Strategy (SEMMMS) was accepted by the Government.

Since then the Local Authorities within the SEMMMS area – Cheshire East, Derbyshire, Manchester, Stockport and Tameside, together with Transport for Greater Manchester, have been working hard to deliver the various elements of the strategy.

The 20 year strategy was developed to deal with existing and predicted transport problems in the area and aims to:

  • Improve public transport
  • Improve the use of road space
  • Encourage transport change
  • Encourage urban regeneration
  • Improve highways
