Shame on them. Thanks for exposing them Steve 😆

I'm not sure if it's exposing as I'm one of the four and it's not hidden. I thought it fair to inform accordingly..

Kind regards

Yes that's exactly right. Let those who have a mandate, those who have been elected deal with issues.  Not those unaccountable,  unelected, answerable to nobody individuals who seek to force their views on the rest of us.

Good morning all

Regarding this issue I think it's only right to inform interested people that of the Neighbourhood forum management team, 4 of the 6 Marple North and South Councillors are on this committee (Cllrs Allan, Blair, Macalister and myself).

Kind regards

I'll  take that to mean I'm not entitled to a view Howard, that prefer debate to be stifled.

That sounds exactly like what an ex-councillor who can't leave it alone would say.

Or in other words, leave everything to our 'betters' in local authorities to destroy Marple, as clearly in your opinion they know better than local people what should be the future of the town.

Or better still don't do, ignore it and let The Busy Bodies Charter wither and die.

An invitation to Marple Neighbourhood Forum AGM

Marple Neighbourhood Forum will hold their third Annual General Meeting at 10 a.m. on Saturday 15th September at the United Reformed Church on Hibbert Lane. The MNF would very much welcome additional members, particularly from the under-50 age groups, as they finalise plans and policies and begin the process of implementation. Experience of Planning isn't necessary; a passion for the future of Marple is all you need to contribute.

I sent a message about one of the maps (Transport proposals including proposed cycle network) which the draft says are available now on request but haven’t heard anything back. Can you help admin?

In fact I think all the maps listed might be quite important for forming a real opinion on the plan, so maybe make them public?

Hi @rsh, I've requested copies so that they can be shared with people in the community who are interested.

Marple Neighbourhood Plan is out for public consultation

Marple Neighbourhood Plan is out for public consultation

Since Marple Neighbourhood Forum was formed in April 2016 its members have been working hard on the development of a plan for Marple. "Our Marple Plan" is now at the stage where it is ready for Public Consultation and the Forum needs as many local people as possible to get involved by reading and commenting on the draft plan.

The latest document identifies a whole range of things that the Forum thinks should be covered in the Plan but there are six key issues that seem to be most critical and these are prioritised in the public consultation survey:

Six key issues for Marple:
  • Do we want another supermarket in Marple?
  • What about pedestrian access across Stockport Road and traffic in general?
  • Are we doing enough to promote tourism to our area via our industrial heritage?
  • Do we want to change the leisure and other amenities in Marple, and how?
  • Should we prioritise the opportunities for community hubs around our two stations?
  • What should we do about Goyt Mill and what are our options for residential or industrial use?
How Marple people can get involved:

The draft Marple Neighbourhood Plan is available to read via this link.

Please take the time to read the plan, then complete the survey and submit your comments.

The on-line Marple Neighbourhood Plan survey is available via this link.

There is an opportunity to make comments at the end of the survey but if you would like to go into more detail with your response please email further comments to info@ourmarpleplan.co.uk

You can also respond to the consultation in the Red Letterbox located in Marple Library.

The Marple Neighbourhood Forum's AGM is 10am on Saturday 15 September at the United Reformed Church on Hibbert Lane.
