  1. It looks to be an exciting and modern development, something to be proud of after 18 years of denial of access to the area, which is now an unsightly scar on the face of Stalybridge. I hope there will be plenty of positive comment at the Consultation as this development represents a plus for the town. There has been something of a revival of fortunes in Stalybridge recently, with the Summers Quay development and the ongoing work on the Police Station site. This is all forward-looking, Stalybridge can’t remain tied to the past.

  2. I agree that the site of the old clinic needs to be developed but a huge residential development there will be a blight on that area. My main concern is that more people in Staly ridge will need facilities such as doctors, parking, school places etc.The town is overstretched already

  3. I hope this proposal will be well thought out, relevant and affordable for people to use. We don’t want more empty, never been rented retail units like ones in Armeteries Square. Stalybridge need to be able to attract little Independants who can attract residents into their shops, bars and resturants.
