What is the Stockport Local Plan?

4. Communities

Communities across the borough rely on a wide variety of services and facilities, including indoor and outdoor sports facilities.

It might otherwise be called our ‘social infrastructure’. The facilities which deliver this include such things as schools, health care uses, libraries, children’s day-care nurseries, Children’s Centres, Children and Family Centres, community buildings and other education facilities.

How we develop, promote and protect them is important. Maintaining and improving the necessary facilities can be difficult, so we would like to explore ways in which we can help ensure those important uses are able to be used by the public.
