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.
A transport renaissance in Stockport
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.
Transforming the daily commute
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.
