No New Posts May 2016 Local Elections & Council Matters

This board is set up for discussing the May 2016 local councillor elections, when the two existing long-serving and experienced Councillors Alexander and Candler will retire, leaving the field open for new candidates of all parties and backgrounds. It also seems to be a good place to segrate threads about local council issues and topics that we might like to see our local councillors contributing to.

No New Posts Hazel Grove Elections May 2015

This board is set up for discussing the forthcoming general election and specifically the seat of Hazel Grove, which includes the Marple Area. With Sir Andrew Stunell OBE, incumbent since 1997, retiring it's likely that Hazel grove will be much more tightly contest than it has been in the recent past. Please let's try have a healthy exchange and try to understand the points of view of others as well as promoting your own. Rather than a political slanging match let's try to be positive about our prospective candidates to be our new local MP!

No New Posts Sale of Hibbert Lane Campus to Supermarket Chain

There have been rumours on this forum since 2005 that the Hibbert Lane College site is to be “sold to Tesco”. Until recently the rumours have been vigorously denied but they are now known to be true and CAMSFC have confirmed that they are considering bids from two supermarket chains and expect their Board of Governors to choose between them in October 2011. This section of the forum is for local people to have their say and all related threads will be moved here.
