Grand Central re-Development
Stockport Council and Muse Developments have signed a Development Agreement.

Phase One consists of a new 1,000 space multi-story car park and a range of highway improvements, due to be completed at the beginning of 2014. The new car park will meet increasing demand for parking next to the railway station and encourage more people to take the train. A temporary parking solution for commuters will be provided during its construction.

Phase Two has been masterplanned for the first commercial office building, new public space, a hotel and highway improvements by 2015.

Phase Three will include further office buildings, extension of the open space and further improved accessibility for pedestrians on a phased basis up to 2020.

The Council bought the site - known as Grand Central - last year to bring forward the office-led development, including hotel and improved car parking, as well as an attractive new gateway to the town centre.

Regeneration specialist Muse Developments were appointed by the Council as development partner, to deliver the project.

Councillor Iain Roberts, Executive Member for Economic Development and Regeneration at Stockport Council, said: “We’ve worked hard to make sure that it’s self-financing and at no extra cost to the Council-tax payer.”

I hope someone has told the rail companies,the trains are overcrowded now,if the car parking is increased then it will get even worse.oh unless the car park charges are so high nobody uses them.
