Vision Stockport is a community interest company (CIC) set up to help to create a more vibrant Stockport town centre for everyone to enjoy.
Like many town centres, Stockport faces an increasing number of challenges to compete with out of town retail and business parks and online shopping. However, there are real opportunities to create a new kind of town centre. A 21st century destination that can be enjoyed by residents, businesses and visitors alike.
Vision Stockport wants to encourage and support innovative ideas. To encourage groups to work together. Also to inspire others to create a safe, exciting and sustainable Stockport that we can all enjoy and be proud of.
With support from the council, one of the first initiatives Vision Stockport is developing is the proposed designation of the town centre as a Business Improvement District (BID). This has the potential to generate funds that that will be used to improve the offering within the town centre.
