Labour Block Woodbank Nursery Consultation

Manor's Lib Dem team have been fighting for the consultation of residents

The planned consultation on the future of the nursery site in Woodbank Park – involving everyone with an interest in the park – has been further delayed after action from Labour Councillors.

The park serves people all over Manor ward and it is important that lots of local people and groups that use the park have a say in the future of the nursery site.

This is why Manor Lib Dem Councillors Sue Derbyshire and Daniel Hawthorne wanted the Council to issue a consultation document to ensure these key stakeholders had their say.

But Labour Councillors representing Edgeley, Cale Green, and elsewhere in Stockport, blocked the plan.  They wanted a costly referendum-style poll, but for just the neighbours of the Park.

Cllr Daniel Hawthorne said: “One consultation document for all interested parties would have been preferable – but councillors from Edgeley, Cale Green and elsewhere outvoted the Manor councillors present.”
