Councillor Elise Wilson, Stockport Council’s Executive Member for Reform and Governance, said: “We want to get as many residents as possible involved in creating new ideas that help people to join together and make our neighbourhoods even better places to live in. As a Council, we’re committed to communities and I’d encourage everyone to take advantage of this new opportunity.”

“If you and some friends or neighbours have an idea then we want to hear from you. Come along to one of our workshops to find out how we can help you bring your idea to life.”
