Read somewhere  that the builder had still no signed the contrack .for the houses ..with the college .
The mills of God and the planning department grind slowly (with apologies to H W Longfellow). The developer would want to investigate the likelihood of getting planning permission before committing hard cash to the project.

Given the fashion for developing redundant buildings, the old part of the school would make quite a pleasant housing project in itself if the "modern" excrescences were got rid of.

When I took the dogs for a walk around 9:30 there was a group of people in the woods just above Marple station, near the tennis courts, with a fire going and music playing. It was the same music I had heard around 6:00am.

And its inconsiderate.  We thought it must be at a farm as we couldn't understand why the neighbours hadn't complained.  We live across the valley and could hear it.

Members of the ex-MIA contact group met with College representatives to gather information about their plans for the future and in particular for the Hibbert Lane site.

The following notes on this meeting have been agreed with the College.

The College are proposing to put the land out to tender in April to national house builders who operate in the North West, with a view to selecting a preferred developer in May. There will follow the submission of a planning application to SMBC and the usual 13 week process and a public consultation in autumn.

Any residential development will have to comply with local and national planning policy and be a mix of accommodation, with an agreed percentage of affordable housing to be determined by Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council, whose planning guidance aims for up to 30%.

The plans for Buxton Lane have not been addressed yet. The plans will be heavily modified from those previously submitted, with more emphasis on classroom accommodation to meet EFA approval. The College has applied to EFA for a £1.5m grant for a 10 room Maths & Science block on Buxton Lane as a Phase 1 development and is awaiting a decision.

The College is currently recruiting student and parent governors. The College Board of Governors includes a contingent of parent, student and professionals within their field of practice. If you would like to express an interest in joining the College Board of Governors then please contact the Clerk to the Governors for an application form.

Marple residents should notice that the College are currently recruiting new members to the Board of Governors. There is little direct representation of the Marple community on the Board, and this would seem to be an ideal opportunity for parents, students or any member of the community with an interest in the College's future and its role in Marple, to contact the College. The ex-MIA contact group will meet with the College again in a few months time, and relay any information that we gather from the meeting to the Marple community via this web site.

This information published in March relates to it. Expecting more details from Marple College soon too.

Just read the article about the planned improvements for Marple Sixth Form College on Buxton Lane in the Inside Marple magazine. It mentioned that some land on Hibbert Lane had been sold to fund this. Anyone aware who has bought the land and for what purpose? Not aware that this was happening but it seems to be a done deal now.
