Stockport is an unbeatable location. Under two hours from London and only 10 minutes from Manchester city centre by train, the town is also close to Manchester International Airport, and directly off the M60 Motorway making it a prime location for international business. Connectivity is the town’s key offer and it is a winning one.

Improving Stockport’s transport infrastructure

The centre of Stockport is undergoing transformational change, making it a great place to live, work and invest. In order to ensure that Stockport retains its unrivalled connectivity, plans are in place to revitalise the town’s transport infrastructure.

Living in a greener, leafier town

Stockport has a great mix of the rural and urban. The town centre is the hub of commerce and business, while outlying areas such as The Heatons, Marple, Hazel Grove and Bramhall offer great places to live in a greener, leafier setting.

It is the Mayor’s ambition for Greater Manchester to be the best place to live and grow up. Changing how we travel, by enabling significantly more people to walk and cycle short journeys will help us do this and to clean up our polluted air. Stockport town centre has so much potential to become a star attraction by becoming a cleaner, greener, healthier destination.
