I understand that an e-Petition request has been submitted to Stockport MBC but I would advise that the current wording of the Petition may not be acceptable to the Borough Solicitor (i'm responsible for e-Petitions at Rochdale MBC).

e- Petitions are a great way to get the Council to take notice and can result in the matter being debated at a Full Council meeting.  In other words we could force the Council to debate the sale of the campus with all Councillors present and to request they take appropriate action.  

The wording of any Petition needs to be asking the Council to take a specific action.  In this case I would suggest "We request the Council to support the residents of Marple to reject the development of the Hibbert Lane Campus.  Furthermore we ask the Council stands by it's Core Strategy and promotes this site be used for development of Scoial Housing if the site must be developed at all."

That's interesting UHL, I submitted an ePetition to SMBC several days ago but have had no response from them and I decided to proceed with the iPetitions one instead. How do you know about it when I haven't even had the promised response from SMBC after I submitted it? Even more curious, you seem to know the wording I submitted. How is that please?

I've done as you suggest by the way, let's see if I get a response to this one!

Few things are impossible to diligence and skill. Great works are performed not by strength, but perseverance. By perseverance the snail reached the ark.
The truth is marching on.

Have you got something that we can print off to pass on to people without Internet   Cheers

Do you mean petition-wise Miss M? If so, yes, here's a download that I hope lots of people will print and collect signatures. I know Sarah at Stationery Supplies will be keen to help out on this again and people without Internet access will be able to call in there.

Marple in Action's own web site is now on-line and can be accessed via:

www.marple-in-action.org.uk or www.marple-uk.com/marple-in-action

There is a downloadable poster to display in your window or garden if you support the campaign against the sale of the site to a supermarket.

The iPetition can be accessed through the above links or directly here:

http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/marple-in-action/

Please "sign" the electronic petition and share it with as many people as you can.
