The Central Stockport Area Committee represents the wards of Brinnington and Central, Davenport and Cale Green, Edgeley and Cheadle Heath and Manor.
At area committees members of the public have the opportunity to ask questions about any matters within the Area Committee’s powers (except on legal or confidential matters). You can view the Council Code of Practice and download a question card on the website. You can also submit a question using the online question form.
The Council has delegated £3000 to each ward to allow Community Groups and other non-commercial organisations to apply for contributions toward funding for projects within the community.
The fund is administered by the Democratic Services Manager in consultation with the Ward Councillors.
Area Committees have delegated powers to deal with certain types of planning applications, and Councillors have the power to call up applications that are ordinarily dealt with by planning officers, to be considered and determined by the Area Committee.
Members of the public also have the opportunity to address the Committee during consideration of a planning application for a total of 3 minutes. One person will be permitted to address the Area Committee for 3 minutes in objection to the application and one person for 3 minutes in support of the application.
If you wish to speak on a planning application it is advisable that you arrive 5 minutes prior to the commencement of the meeting in order to inform the Democratic Services Officer.
