We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes. See all outcomes

We asked

The aims of this engagement were to: understand what uses Stockroom could have; enable participants to have their say on the types of things they might like to see in Stockroom; identify any perceived disadvantages to the Stockroom idea; capture the perceived benefits a development of this nature may provide.

You said

In total 1299 surveys were completed. A broad mix of age bands (17% under 35, 60% 35-64 & 18% over 65), those with  (37%) and without children at home (59%) (4% preferring not to say) and those who do (18%) or do not have (76%) a disability or long-term health condition (5% preferring not to say) completed the survey.

The idea of Stockroom was seen as exciting and a great opportunity to enhance learning as well as being a place to socialise. Stockroom is seen as having the potential to provide a multi-use community space and bring services and organisations together in one central location. The benefits of a development of this nature for the Town Centre were seen as being multi-faceted but with regeneration of the High Street the one most agreed with.

Participants also had the opportunity in an open-ended question to write anything which they saw as being a disadvantage to the proposed plans. 41% of participants left this question blank and 23% of those who gave a written answer to this question provided a positive comment rather than any perceived disadvantage. However, 20% of those making a comment felt that most or all resources will be taken away from Central Library. Also, 16% felt that Stockroom would take away from local amenities and facilities.

We did

Following the positive response to this survey, we are now consulting with people about moving the Town Centre library services from Central Library into Stockroom. The Proposal to move Central Library services to Stockroom consultation is running from 23 August to 18 October.

We asked

Between Wednesday 13th January and Friday 12th February 2021, we asked you for your views on the existing traffic calming measures along Windlehurst Road between the A6 (Buxton Road) and Broadhurst’s Bridge. 

You said

Part 1 of the response form focused on traffic calming along Windlehurst Road (A6 to Broadhurst’s Bridge) as a whole.

A total of 932 online and written response forms were received in response to the consultation. The results indicate that the majority (81%) of respondents agree that traffic calming on Windlehurst Road should be reviewed and removed in some sections. 

Part 2 of the response form focused on the traffic calming along Windlehurst Road within the following two sections: Section 1 - Between the A6 (Buxton Road) and Andrew Lane; and Section 2 - Between Andrew Lane and Broadhurst’s Bridge (Macclesfield Canal).

77% and 89% of respondents respectively for Section 1 and 2 identified that they believe traffic calming should be removed within these Sections. Furthermore, 80% and 86% of respondents respectively for Section 1 and 2 identified that they do not like driving along Windlehurst Road. Very few respondents identified that they feel more comfortable walking or cycling along Windlehurst Road.  

We did

The analysis of the consultation has found that approximately half of the responses received to this public consultation were from residents who live outside the High Lane area. It is considered likely that these residents utilise Windlehurst Road as a driving route and would not experience the impacts of speeding along Windlehurst Road to the same extent as the residents who live alongside or adjacent to the road who are directly affected daily.

Therefore, it has been recommended that additional analysis is undertaken to better understand the various perspectives based on geographical locations prior to any decisions being made regarding the retention or removal of the existing traffic calming measures along Windlehurst Road.

We asked

We asked for your views on proposed changes to a number of SEND support services in Stockport funded by the High Needs Funding block of the Dedicated Schools Grant (DSG).

You said

We had over 674 responses to the consultation from a range of different stakeholders.

We did

We are now in the process of considering the outcomes of the consultation and beginning to work up the proposals that will be further developed to be taken forward later in the year. For more information please email DSG@stockport.gov.uk
