Stockport Council gets it wrong again. Even the Airport City website says the project will include thousands of sq ft of RETAIL space! ie. it is NOT just about “international trade” as the FoI response below states it is. Is Councillor Roberts too busy Tweeting, working for Mark Hunter and engaged in other work he refuses to declare as an interest to do his job of Executive Councillor for Regeneration properly? I couldn’t possibly comment!

Dear Mrs Oliver,

I am writing in response to your request for information (ref FOI 7052).

The relevant Council Service(s) has searched for the requested information and our response is as follows.

Given that the Airport City development is specifically targeted at international trade, no formal consideration has been given to any potential impact on Stockport town centre.

If you are unhappy with the way we have handled your request for information, you are entitled to ask for an internal review; however you must do so within 40 working days of the date of this response. Any internal review will be carried out by a senior member of staff who was not involved with your original request. To ask for an internal review, contact in the first instance.

If you are unhappy with the outcome of any internal review, you are entitled to complain to the Information Commissioner. To do so, contact:
