Quote from: amazon on March 14, 2012, 08:19:18 PMWhat do you think of Stockport not getting city status .Certainly Chelmsford and Perth are way more worthy candidates than Stockport. Whoever put money on St Asaph must be very happy but it's still more important historically than Stockport.I'm not sure what the council spent on trying to get city status but whatever it was it was a waste of money. Seriously, apart from self-important idiots in the council chamber and hierarchy, who cares?PS, topic now merged into earlier thread for completeness.
What do you think of Stockport not getting city status .
I notice that Stockport, alongside Bolton, are to bid for City status this year - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-manchester-12414857Personally this sounds like an expensive waste of money. I would rather live in a small town where rubbish is collected, libraries and public loos are available and flower beds are not turfed over than see money wasted on this status bid.I note one of council leader Dave Goddards quoted advantage of Stockport is "Transport links". What planet is he on? Obviously hasnt spent half an hour queuing on the M60 when the Tesco roundabout screws up.What do others think?
I'm sure I am not alone in finding all these covered shopping malls somewhat claustrophobic! It is nice to come out of the overheated shops for a few minutes and see that there is still a sky out there - even if it is raining!
You must mean Stockport MBC, but I don't think local authorities designate areas as towns or villages. AFAIK only cities are subject to any 'official' designation. Good Luck to Stockport (we'll need it ;-)

If it was, London, Manchester and Glasgow wouldn't be cities!Dave, how often do you go to Stockport? How often do you go to Manchester or any of your stated cities?Have you compared them thoroughly, have you driven through Stockport and Manchester? Have you stayed in either overnight?Do you know what makes Manchester far better than Stockport.....................I know I do.Stockport has very little in comparison to Manchester. Manchester is a buzz with life but the same can not be said for Stockport sadly.
