Stockport to get state-of-the-art community hub

Posted on by in Weekly News

Willmott Dixon is helping Stockport Council to develop a state-of-the-art Community Hub supported by a £20M grant from the Levelling Up Fund.

The council has submitted a planning application for the scheme in Marple, which will deliver a two-storey building with a five-lane swimming pool, a ground floor library with a small cafe, a 60-station fitness suite, shared community spaces, and the relocated Marple clinic.

Councillor Colin MacAlister, Stockport Council Cabinet Member for Economy, Regeneration and Housing, said: “We have listened to what the people of Marple have said and this fantastic new facility reflects what local people have wanted in their area for a long time.

“I am delighted that we continue to move this forward. If planning is granted, this hub is going to make a huge, positive impact on the prosperity, health and wellbeing of the residents of Marple and the borough.

Anthony Dillon, Managing Director for Willmott Dixon in the North, added: “We’re proud to be working in partnership with Stockport Council once again, and to be playing our part in creating a vibrant and innovative community hub for the people of Marple.”

A decision on the development is expected in June 2024.
