Closes 3 Jul 2024

Contents

This online survey splits the guide into each of the separate chapters. It gives a summary of the chapter and a link to the full version (PDF document). It also allows you to provide your comments on each of the chapters.    

The chapters are as follows: 

  • Introduction: the purpose and scope of the design guide. 

  • A changing town centre: sets out the evolution of Stockport Town Centre and the key priorities for the future.  

  • Key components to successful town centre living: general design guidance to be applied to all future residential proposals. This includes factors such as responding to context and character, prioritising pedestrians and cyclists, and making sure development is green and sustainable.   

  • The Stockport assets: important features that make up the unique character of Stockport Town Centre, which should be protected and enhanced. This includes (and is not limited to), iconic landmarks, a rich industrial heritage and landscape assets.  

  • Character area guidance: the guide acknowledges that the townscape character of the town centre varies. As such, the guide splits the town centre into 12 distinct character areas and provides specific guidance for each of these areas.   

  • Conclusion: final comments. 

  • Appendices: character area appraisals, external references and the nationally described space standards.

All responses must be submitted no later than 3 July 2024. Responses submitted after this date, will not be accepted.
