As reported in the Area Committee thread, the planning application for 92-94 Church Lane was recommended for refusal by Marple Councillors, but it will now go to the Planning and Highways committee for a final decision. This is on Thursday 22 November at 6pm and it can be watched live or on catch-up via the council's webcast system using this link: https://stockport.public-i.tv/core/portal/webcast_interactive/385295

I am not particularly clear why it is considered an eyesore.  It just looks like a shop to me.  It has a frontage.  It has signs.

It's not the best shop in the world but it's open and - presumably - makes enough money to keep it open.  Compared to some other shops nearby, there is nothing wrong with it in my eyes.

An eyesore to me would be derelict, overgrown, rotting, falling down.  Neither the shop building nor the car park fit that description.  Certainly i can see no justification for compulsory purchase.

I still think it's a great shame that the eyesore shop and car park on the corner of Hibbert Lane (Chirch Lane Stores) is not being included in this scheme.

Have any of the councillors looked into the option of the council using their powers to forcefully buy it?

The latest plans for this development are up for consideration at Marple Area Committee on Wednesday.

Here (hopefully) is a link to the application:

http://planning.stockport.gov.uk/PlanningData-live/applicationDetails.do?keyVal=OQ22Y9PJHUW00&activeTab=summary

These links sometimes expire so if it doesn't work search the portal for DC/065826 |  Demolition of existing buildings and erection of mixed use development comprising 20 apartments and A1 retail floorspace (Amended Plans).

Still a shame they can't incorporate the ghastly off-licence as well.

To resurrect this topic - there are now revised planning application documents on the Stockport Planning website:

http://planning.stockport.gov.uk/PlanningData-live/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=summary&keyVal=OQ22Y9PJHUW00.

There seems to be hardly any change from the original. Disabled places and bin locations have been shuffled round in the car park. but the basic structure of 3 storey apartments and a shop seems unchanged. The consultation expiry date is now 18th July. This could be a cunning plan by the developers to retrigger the consultation process with only a short period to respond.  I don't know if previous comments still stand, or if they have to be re-submitted.

So - please make your feelings known to Stockport Council!

Thanks Admin ,  👍🏻
The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubt.

Can anyone give an update on this proposed development, there hasn't been any new forum postings and no signs onsite of anything starting soon.

According to the Planning Portal the status is still just "registered". It doesn't show that it has been either granted or refused.

I suspect this means that they're having a rethink but I'm not certain of that.

To see follow the link below and search for DC/06582

http://planning.stockport.gov.uk/PlanningData-live/

I've also heard a rumour that there is to be a new retail outlet on the site of Church Lane Garage but cannot find anything to confirm this.

I agree that Marple is in decline. It is no longer the viberant town that it was twenty/thirty years ago. It has become run down and has to many charity shops. The charity shop in the old blockbuster shop looks scruffy!!
If you look at the regeneration of Poynton- in my opinion this has been a success and people travel to go there!! We need to encourage more specialist shops to open up in Marple - encourage the existing shops to open later. The Wednesday half day closing is out of date. Marple has the potential to be a great place that people choose to visit.
Umm, Market Street is a pretty good "centre". Unfortunately, the "improvements" over the last 30 years have made it a mess with cheap, tatty shop fronts replacing the C19 ones. The people responsible for the trees, the herb beds and the benches do their best but are fighting a losing battle.

I was only wondering the other day what the Portas money had been frittered on.

I lived on Market Street as a child when many of the properties were lived in by the shop owners and again in the early '80s when I lived over my father's shop and was the only resident in the street. I'm glad to see that more of the flats above the shops are occupied again.

The row attached to the Bull's Head and which carries a plaque giving the age of the properties - built in the year of the battle of Trafalgar! The row was sheduled for slum clearance just before the second World War - saved by Hitler and not many can say that! It's a pity that no-one saw fit to try and get Market street made a conservation area before the "developers" (hollow laugh!) got their sticky little paws on it.

Don't look for the light at the end of the tunnel -  stomp along there and turn the bl**dy thing on yourself!

yes it is in decline afraid what with Banks  closing and going part time . noticed the ladies knicker shop is closing as well .its not very inviting at the moment Marple

Banks are closing everywhere.  There is nothing unique to Marple on that front.  There is a Lloyds closing soon near Piccadilly bus station but that doesn't mean Manchester city centre is dying.  Just that the business model of banks is changing due to the majority of people preferring to bank online.  I go into a branch once or twice a year.  I dislike branches closing but realistically I don't go in them.

You're right, Marple has been in a slow decline for years and really needs a kick up the arse to bring it in to this century! Market street could be fabulous and a place where people from outside Marple come to shop / eat and could really benefit the community with jobs etc.

When the shop on the right as you look at them from Market Street and which was a sweet shop called "The Bon Bon" closed and came up for sale, I remember my father (who at the time, was a big(gish) bug in the then Chamber of Trade) commenting that it would be difficult to sell it as a shop as there was a covenant on the property which restricted its use as a retail outlet. I was only in my teens so I can't remember the details but doubtless someone else knows.

Further to Market Street, I sat outside "All Things Nice", having coffee, a week or so ago and it struck me how tatty Market Street was looking with cheap-looking shop fronts (with a few exceptions). The general appearance of the street doesn't look exactly inviting to shoppers who don't know the area very well.

I found it quite sad.
