[QUOTE=OliverJohnstone]Since becoming a Councillor I have learned to try and lessen my rather blunt choice of words at times....[/QUOTE]

what are your thoughts on it?

I think there have been some positives but if that has been £200k's worth is debatable.

in principle, i think awarding a group of businesses a budget to promote the town is likely to get better outcomes than leaving it to the council. However, there are a lot of major issues in Stockport that can only be overcome by the council planning:

Parking issues (more is needed, it needs to be free/cheap & stop penalising customers)
Business Rates
Planning permission, landlords need to be allowed / encouraged to develop retail units to residential.
