Quorum Estates submit appeal on Bredbury Park planning decision-
William Wragg, the Member of Parliament for the Hazel Grove constituency, has urged residents to let the Planning Inspector know their views on the proposed extension of the Bredbury industrial estate- after a last-minute appeal against the decision has been lodged.
After a long campaign, Bredbury and Woodley residents alongside their William Wragg MP ensured that the plans were rejected by the planning committee of Stockport Council. However, Quorum Estates have submitted an appeal against the decision- and the planning inspector will now determine the outcome.
William said: “Regardless of any appeal, the facts haven’t changed. Our area cannot accept the increased traffic, congestion, noise and environmental pollution that the extension of the industrial estate would bring.”
William added: “The loss of much-loved green space is simply too high a price to pay. Residents must have their voices heard, and I am encouraging as many as possible to respond to the call for evidence so we can show our united opposition against these proposals.”
Local Conservative campaigner, Tim Morley said: “Time and time again, residents have come together and objected against these plans, and this will be our last chance to do so. Working with William Wragg MP, and community groups in the area, I will continue to fight these proposals and I encourage all those concerned to respond to the appeal.”

- Damage the quality of the air residents breathe.
- Increase traffic in Bredbury.
- Damage biodiversity and arboriculture, with the negative residual effects on badger and nesting bird populations being of particular concern.
- Rob local residents in Bredbury, Brinnington and Woodley of vital green open space.
- Increase noise pollution.
- Contradict planning policies specifically relevant to Greater Manchester and Stockport
