A year after the new Labour administration ‘saved’ Stockport Market, Council figures show the market is in serious decline.
A report to the Council’s Scrutiny Co-Ordination Committee forecasts a fall in visitors by 9% over the last financial year.
The Labour group squashed a consultation into the market’s future, but have show no sign of a vision to revive the market. Instead, they seem to be managing its decline.
Paul Ankers said, “These figures are alarming. I am fond of the market, but other markets in Manchester & Gorton have been revitalized. The last LibDem administration had a plan but this Labour lot are just glad to be in charge but have no vision for Stockport.”be7 Comments
