Councillor Mark Weldon was lead Executive Councillor on the biggest incidence of planning corruption I have found at Stockport:

The Wharf, Marple

Marple Wharf, Uncategorised Posted on Wed, November 13, 2019 18:34:24

The Canal and River Trust put in a planning application to Stockport Council to build seven houses on the site of Marple Wharf. This planning application was refused by the local councillors.

These are the directors of the newly formed Wharf Project Company –

New Horizons, who provide the special narrow boat for the disabled boat trips, is also under jeopardy. What the planning doesn’t state is once the houses are built they will no longer have a mooring and have not been offered an alternative. 


Susan Ingham is a previous Stockport Council LibDem councillor.



Malcolm Allan is a Stockport Council LibDem councillor.



The local Community’s take on this project:

The Stockport Council planning application:


“Redevelopment of Marple Yard comprising the change of use and conversion of the former canal warehouse for a mix of uses including cafe (Use Class A3) with shared space for heritage and visitor display/information, community meetings (Use Class D1) and ancillary gift shop on the ground floor, and wellbeing and fitness room for floor-based activities (Use Class D2) on the first floor, demolition of outbuildings and structures; erection of 7no. dwelling houses (Use Class C3) and a storage building incorporating a waterway service station, together with associated landscaping, parking and alterations to access road. | Canal & River Trust Yard Church Street Marple Stockport SK6 6BN”
