Marple Leisure and Community Hub – June Update

Following our previous statement in February we are now pleased to share with you the LUF Engagement Report.

Marple Leisure and Community Hub – June Update

The LUF Engagement Report provides an overview of the engagement process completed by the Council prior to planning submission in early March. The report also provides a detailed analysis of all of the comments that were received by residents and how we have responded to them. You can also review the ‘We Asked, You Said, We Did’ information on the Council’s Consultation Website.

Further to the positive news last month that a Planning Application has been submitted for the development, we can confirm that SMBC Planning have acknowledged receipt and that this has been validated.

As part of the project, Greater Manchester Police will be moving into Hollins House in Marple Memorial Park.

As part of these works, staff from Hollins House will be temporarily re-located into Marple Library on the 1st Floor from the 17th June 2024. Unfortunately, during this period there will be no access for members of the public to the 1st Floor of the Library, including the public toilets. Public toilets are available in Marple Memorial Park. The Ground Floor of the Library will remain operational.

There will also be some restricted parking between Hollins House and Marple Library during this phase.

We look forward to updating residents as we progress with the exciting new development for Marple.
