Improving our public spaces

   Councils  

​Stockport Council

Stockport Council has actively looked at areas where they can invest to upgrade and repair public spaces and property, including over £3.5m of money invested in children's play areas and outside sports facilities, found in-part through unused Section 106 monies. They have invested £1m of additional capital funding to clear the backlog in potholes. In addition, they have invested £130,000 in cleaning and repointing War Memorials ahead of the Armistice centenary ceremonies. In each of these cases, the funding has helped provide lasting repairs and upgrades which should reduce maintenance costs in the future.
