Minutes:

The Deputy Leader of the Council and Cabinet Member for Resources, Commissioning & Governance (Councillor Tom McGee) submitted a joint report of the Cabinet Members for Economy & Regeneration; Resources, Commissioning & Governance and Sustainable Stockport (copies of which had been circulated) setting a proposal to seek approval from the Cabinet to provide debt finance to fund the construction work to deliver the proposed redevelopment at Weir Mill and to dispose of land holding to facilitate the delivery of the scheme.

 

It was further reported that the proposal aimed to bring the mill building back into use and proposed the development of new homes within the town centre and would be a catalyst for further development in the area.  It was noted that the condition of the building was such that it was likely that the proposals before the Cabinet likely constituted the only viable proposal to retain the building.
