About the Stockport Local Plan

1. What is the Local Plan?

Our Local Plan will set out the vision for future development in the borough. It will be used to help decide on planning applications and other planning related decisions for the next 15 years. The plan is a guide to what can be built where, known as a land use plan.

The plan will help us achieve the vision of the One Stockport Borough Plan, in which:

  • the people of Stockport and the communities in which they live are at the heart of Stockport
  • Stockport is a great place to live, where no one is left behind
  • Stockport is growing, creating and delivering a thriving future
