Residents urged to give feedback on Stockports new Interchange Park

Stockport Council is calling for residents to have their say on what they would like to see in a new park being built at the heart of Stockport town centre.

The Interchange Park will be a town centre green space, sitting on top of the new bus interchange.

While some aspects of the park will be fixed for structural reasons, features and facilities will be informed by the consultation process.

The Park is part of Stockport’s wider regenerations strategy, and will be accessible from the A6, by lifts to the bus interchange below and via a new pedestrian and cycle bridge to Stockport Railway Stations.

Cllr David Meller, cabinet member for economy and regeneration at Stockport Council, said: ‘We’ve had some great feedback from residents so far, but we want to ensure their voice is heard and as many people as possible play a role in shaping the Interchange Park.

‘There’s three weeks to go for residents to let us know what they want to see in their new town centre green space. Whether it’s more plants and flowers or safe and well-lit places to sit and relax – make sure you log your views using our engagement portal. Your views will directly influence the final design of the park!’

Plans for Stockport Interchange also include an apartment scheme and a number of retail and café units.

Construction work on the new bus interchange has now begun, with the bus station operating out of its temporary base at Heaton Lane Car Park.

The consultation is running until October 13 and can be accessed here.

In related news, construction is set to begin later this year on a £2m project to regenerate Shoreditch Park, after the Council approved plans for the area.
