Victor,

We seem to be talking about different things here but I'll take your word for it.

Going slightly (only slightly) off subject, does anybody know the names of the Councillors who are/will be on the Executive on the 28th of May?

 

Just Heard the Executive is Cllrs;ALEXANDER,BODSWORTH,CANDLER,DERBYSHIRE,DOWLING,HAWTHORNE,HOGG,PANTELL,ROBERTS & WELDON.

Portfolios not yet decided but Derbyshire & Candler elected Leader and Deputy Leader respectively.

The Department of transport and SMBC have already "Paved the way" for any major supermarket by altering junctions,a so called cycle track and stregthening of Dan Bank. ;)


So you don't think the road to Stockport sliping into the valley should have been addressed then. Why is it a "So called cycle tack"?

Yes but the original poster was suggesting that the work was all done as a plot by the LA to help a supermarket bid.
Talk about paranoid.

If that was for the supermarket they wasted their money surveying on Carnival Day! That data would get ripped to shreds at any inquiry.

It looked like they were actually dismantling the sensor outside the pet shop just after the parade had gone down the road and before it came back up.

Maybe they did, but the morning of the Carnival is hardly typical Saturday morning conditions in the town is it. I certainly wouldn't want to rely on that.

27 June 2012 - Consultation Details (taken from SMBC web site):

Consultation Events – Friday 6 July 2012 10am – 6pm and Saturday 7 July 10am – 5pm
Cheadle & Marple 6th Form College, Hibbert Lane Campus.

Cheadle and Marple sixth form College and Asda have organised an exhibition for residents to find out about their plans for the Hibbert Lane and Buxton Lane sites. The College plans include a re-modelled campus on the Buxton Lane site for its students and the local community. The plans include refurbishing the Buxton buildings along with a new 6,000sq m teaching block and new sports hall. The site will be unified through a multi-use learning ‘street’ for informal and social learning and a new 3G all weather sports pitch and upgraded changing facilities.

Asda will present their plans for a neighbourhood supermarket on the Hibbert Lane site.

These consultation events are being run by the college and Asda, prior to the submission of a planning application. Should a planning application be made, there will be further opportunities to have your say.

3G sports pitch, what's not to like? Will be a massive draw for local teams.

Its interesting to note that the above statement, taken from MIA's web site, is not a truthful copy of the statement on the SMBC web site.

It omits the sentence "It is understood that the proposed supermarket will occupy a site smaller than the current college buildings."

This does rather make a mockery of some of the scaremongering claims, such as

To put this in perspective the size of the supermarket will be the size of 6 Football pitches and don't let them tell you any different ! 

Perhaps some people should have waited for the plans to be made available, rather than make up 'facts'.

Are you trying to say that Miss Marple and the rest of the meddling MIA have been telling 'porkies' all along???????

Oh dear.  We've had misleading information from MIA in the past, but until now it has tended to come from individuals on this forum, or talking to passers-by at the MIA tent in Market Street, and not from official MIA statements.   But this is obviously a deliberate attempt by MIA to conceal information, and it can only backfire on them, I'm afraid.

Dear Mr Clarke,
Cheadle and Marple Sixth Form College
I read that your company is planning to buy Cheadle and
Marple Sixth Form College, demolish it and build a supermarket.
As a resident of Marple, I am both shocked
and amazed. The shock is from learning that we now live
in a country that closes schools to open supermarkets.
My amazement is that a company such as yours that
spends so much to project a positive image would ever
dream about becoming involved in such a sad and
shameful story.
Given the rapacious nature of the big four supermarkets
chains, you may well choose to persist in the plan to destroy
an institute of education and build yet another of
your stores. But, be aware – you live in the court of
public opinion, and public opinion is strongly against this
loss of land that was gifted many years ago to the people
of Marple: ‘that their sons and daughters should be able
to learn and become good citizens’.
For your huge company to destroy a school and build
land gifted for education will be a public relations disaster
for ASDA. And be sure that the people of Marple will
make sure that the wider public knows. We will also fight
your plans – your money may buy good lawyers – but we
will fight nonetheless. And if you win? Well you will be
marked forever as the man who destroys places of
education to pursue yet another pound of profit.
Yours sincerely

Marple in Action
