What consitutes the "built" areas? Does it mean the existing buildings - library, council offices, bowling green, or the car park, or both, or neither?

That's all that was mentioned.  It was just a snippet.  A brief glimpse into what's going on.  I'm sure there will be more information on options soon enough.

But the council does own the library, the offices, the clinic, the senior citizens hall (although not the Scout hut) and the car park.  You could combine the library, pool and gym in one building to make it a "one stop shop".  Even more options if you could include  the police station and Scout hut at the same time.  The current pool site could be redeveloped as offices, maybe even the clinic and senior citizen hall.  This is all pure speculation of course. 

It could be a complex option due to the necessity to relocate and shuffle lots of facilities in one go.  But it would offer lots of options with a convenient location.

Although there's no news, minutes from the Friends of Marple Memorial Park's recent meeting unveil one of the possible options being looked at:

The initial response from councillors was very positive, however, one councillor was concerned about potential development in the park arising from ongoing consultations relating to the possibility of relocating Marple swimming pool. Apparently one of the options being considered is a total redevelopment of the “built areas” within the park.

Obviously there will be other options - no doubt redevelopment of the existing site is one of them.  And no one's saying that there definitely will be a new pool in the park area.  It just shows that various options are being considered.

Events / Music appreciation at Semitone Studios on Friday 21 September
« Last post by petereccles on Yesterday at 05:26:13 PM »
Want to know more about classical music

These weekly sessions are starting again on Friday morning 21 September from 10.30 to 12.00.  The people who came to the sessions in July and August seemed to enjoy them.  The sessions are all independent so it is possible just to drop in for the odd week.  This week I plan to look at some of JS Bach's Brandenburg Concertos.  I will say a bit about the background the pieces and how they came to be written and then introduce each movement we listen to.  We can share reactions to each movement after we listen to it.

The location is Semitone Studios, 130 Stockport Road (opposite the Texaco filling station).  The cost is £5 for each session.

Monthly Events / Re: Marple Area Committee Meetings [Until 10 April 2019)
« Last post by admin on Yesterday at 04:44:37 PM »
The agenda for the Marple Area Committee Meeting on Wednesday 26 September has been published.

As usual doors open around 5.30pm and the meeting starts at 6pm in the Marple Senior Citizens' Hall..

As mentioned below, the revised Garden House Planning Application will be considered so it is likely to be a busy meeting.
The Marple Wharf Development is not currently on the agenda but it is possible that it may added as an addendum.

There's a page about Marple AC that tries to explain in simple terms what they do and how you can get involved here:

http://www.marple.website/marple-area-committee.html



The page includes a map of the Marple Wards so you can see exactly where the boundaries of Marple North and Marple South and High Lane are. It also features a live feed from the Stockport Council web site at the bottom that shows links to the latest agendas issued, meetings held etc.

For ease, here is a direct link to the agenda too:

Local Issues / Re: Marple Neighbourhood Plan is out for public consultation

Shame on them. Thanks for exposing them Steve 😆

I'm not sure if it's exposing as I'm one of the four and it's not hidden. I thought it fair to inform accordingly..

Kind regards
