Andrew Gwynne, MP for Denton and Reddish, has joined with fellow Stockport MPs to support Stockport’s Future High Streets Fund bid.
The bid, submitted by Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council, proposes ‘StockRoom’ – a vision for the centre of Stockport, including repurposing the former sites of Marks & Spencer and BHS to create a community learning hub.
The proposed £14.5 million investment would be an integral part of the regeneration of Stockport.
Three Stockport MPs – Navendu Mishra (Stockport), Andrew Gwynne (Denton and Reddish) and William Wragg (Hazel Grove) – have written to the Housing, Communities and Local Government Secretary Robert Jenrick to support the submission for the Future High Streets Fund.
The Future High Streets Fund is a £1 billion fund to invest in towns across England.
Andrew Gwynne said:
“There are really ambitious plans for Stockport town centre, the benefits of which will be felt right across the borough and beyond.
“That’s why I’m supporting the bid for StockRoom because it’s yet another innovative idea which will bring people back into our town.”
