The Wharf, Marple

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

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”

Planning Officer – Dominic Harvey

Stockport Council, forever secretive.

Vicki Bates, Stockport Council Monitoring Officer, at ease with financial corruption.

LibDem planning corruption, with a large proportion of the miscreants coming from the Hazel  Grove constituency – financial abuses.

There is no functioning fraud and financial irregularities policy at Stockport.  I have tried to report this for a decade, but keep being stopped by Vicki Bates, Monitoring Officer at Stockport Council, Michelle Dodds, Deputy Monitoring Officer, other senior council officers and councillors of the cabinet. 

This is an explanation of the rise in the cost of the toxic waste dump school, obtained after talking to a now dead Executive Councillor for Finance, Cllr Carter, in the town hall car park, as I was not allowed to question him in meetings.

As you will see from sheet 2, a figure of £1450m2 was adopted within the cost plan.

As you will see from sheet 1 for the increased floor area from 2600m2 to 3185m2 a cost of £1.050 million is given –

3185 -2600 = 585m2 x £1450 = £848,250 and not £1.050 million.

 Surely, it is in no way “vexatious” to question a financial irregularity of £207,750.  But it is at Stockport firstly under the LibDems and now still under Labour.

In addition, changing areas Sport England – £280,000 – additional 167m2.  Firstly, 167m2 x £1450 – £242, 150 and not £280,000.  Secondly, as far as I am aware there is didley squat there on the site and, of course, I am not allowed to check whether these are hidden inside the school as that would be “vexatious”.

There is no football pitch at the school site – another £75k abnormality Michelle Dodds and others won’t allow me to question.

I asked then LibDem leader of the Council Goddard, now Lord Goddard, chum of notorious gangsters and the person who had sick, innocent Mr Parnell imprisoned.  I have submitted the evidence countless times as I have done to you. This was his response:

Stockport Council Monitoring Officer Vicki Bates and her deputy Michelle Dodds claim it is “vexatious” to question these multi £m financial irregularities. Are these women fit people to hold public office?

Mr Parnell – what he needed

Stockport Council did this to Andrea Adams

Stockport Council did this to Alison Davies and her young son Ryan.

Mr Parnell only asked for counselling for his lovely, adopted daughters who had had a terrible time with their birth parents.

The Serious Case reviews of these two terrible incidents meant that Stockport Council in future agreed to help parents who came to them asking for assistance with children who had problems. Not what they did for sick, innocent Mr Parnell or his lovely family.

They framed and falsely imprisoned him for alleged assault with a sneeze, which CCTV they had showed hadn’t happened, and they refused to allow it to be shown at his trial – evidence exonerating him completely.,-arrests,-imprisonment-1.html

There was no ludicrous assault with a sneeze.

Cllr Mark Hunter, who are you kidding?

This hypocrite was instrumental in pushing the disastrous A6 MARR bypass through important flood plains and cutting down thousands of trees to build it, which each soak up 100 gallons of water per day.
