Circled by the Peak Forest Canal, Marple Village is less than one mile from the development and offers a range of local amenities for all your everyday needs. Alongside a selection of shops and restaurants, the village is also dotted with plenty of traditional pubs, and it boasts one of the country's few remaining independent cinemas.
It's a village surrounded by natural beauty, with endless canal tow path walks and numerous parks to relax in, including The Roman Lakes - popular with anglers, walkers, horse riders and nature lovers.
And if you like to up the pace a little in your free time, you can make the most of the local leisure and sports clubs too, including a swimming pool, football, rugby, cricket and golf clubs.
The above is taken from a housing development site advertising new houses in Marple and to me summaries why we do not need a superstore.
Apathy must be overcome and we must do all we can in a proactive cohesive way if we are going to beat the proposed application. Have any further meetings/gatherings to discuss who can do what been set up? One large group will be more effective rather than small groups of individuals.
