MIPIM VIDEO | Why 2024 is a transformational year for Stockport

Citing a prolific pipeline of homes, offices, community spaces, and even a new interchange, Stockport Council’s Caroline Simpson and Paul Richards elaborated on why this year all eyes should be on the borough.

Simpson is the chief executive of Stockport Council, while Richards is its director of development and regeneration – as well as the chief executive of the Stockport Mayoral Development Corporation. Together with their teams and private sector partners they have helped transform the town centre.

In addition to sharing the latest development updates, Simpson and Richards discussed the value of partnership and the council’s vision for the next 20 years.

Nice video. Its good to see the wider city region flourishing, particularly now Manchester is going all Blade Runner on us.
Amazing place to be part of all around!

Less shops in the town centre and still no mention of schools, doctors.Surely this should be a priority with all the new homes being built

Interesting video and content. I’m looking forward to the Merseyway ugly frontage disappearing and a welcoming entrance opening up to the new learning space, homes etc. That ugley 70s facade has to go, as long as it’s not replaced with the dreadfully tacky materials used for ‘Red Rocks’ (plastic rocks). Very exciting developments for the town centre though. Onwards and upwards. I can’t wait for the Trams to arrive. Many thanks for all the hard work.
