It's easy to understand that the college might want people to think that, as a way of persuading the council to grant planning permission. But in reality it's an extremely unlikely scenario, for the reasons put forward by Howard.

I suppose if you  want to throw out a scenario for discussion, this one is as good as any, but it won't close. There isn't enough capacity in Stockport to take the numbers of students that go to the Marple campus. If the supermarket doesn't happen, and we won't know for several years then they'll find some other way of raising the cash and scale back their plans for development of the site accordingly.

Good thread Victor  ;D

The loss of all the students will have a serious effect on Marples economy.

At the recent ASDA/CAMSFC presentation event the college principal hinted to a number of people that if the planning permission was not granted then the college would have to review it's position as to whether it was feasible to continue in Marple. What do forum members think the impact of the college closing would be on Marple?
