Consultation

1. Call for brownfield sites 2021

As part of the work being done to prepare a new blueprint for new homes and jobs across Stockport (Local Plan), we'd like you to put forward brownfield sites that could be suitable for development.

The Local Plan will have to show that there's enough land to meet development needs from now until 2038. The call for brownfield sites is just one of the things we're doing to make sure we do not miss any opportunities to regenerate brownfield sites. We'd like you to send in details of sites you think are suitable and available for development, or that might become available in the future.

You do not have to own the land to tell us about it. We want to gather as much information as possible so we can plan to meet Stockport’s growing needs.

We'll assess any sites that are sent in to work out what potential for alternative uses they might have. This could be housing, employment or other uses. Any sites that are suggested will be assessed so they can inform the draft Stockport Local Plan which we'll be seeking people's views on in the autumn of 2021.

We do not need suggestions about greenfield sites, just brownfield sites. Ones which have already got buildings or other development on them, or which have had development on them in the past. It's important to note that agricultural buildings do not count as brownfield land, nor do residential gardens, parks or recreation grounds when they are in built up areas.

Tell us about sites that you think:

  • are brownfield, or previously developed
  • might become available for development now, or within the next 15 years

We do not need to know about sites that:

  • are greenfield
  • already have planning permission, unless you think it could be used differently
  • are entirely outside of the Stockport borough boundary

Tell us about a site

All submissions should be accompanied by a map with a boundary and 2 named roads to make sure that the site can be correctly identified.

You should submit your information by 11:59pm on 23 May 2021.

Complete a form for each brownfield site

If you have any questions, or if you need a printed or electronic copy of the form, email local.plan@stockport.gov.uk or call 0161 474 4395.
