WHY STOCKPORT TOWN CENTRE?
Churchgate Mews lies within a £7m regeneration zone, backed by Stockport Council and its partners. This is already making a big impact with many old buildings being brought back to life and a raft of incentives available to encourage the development of independent retailers and creative industry start-ups. Stockport is currently undergoing radical transformation, with over £1 billion dedicated to the regeneration of the town centre and dynamic growth.
In our opinion: “Stockport’s residential property market is ﬂourishing with the town declared one of North West England’s price growth hotspots with strong capital appreciation expected. The town centre has great connectivity, with authorities providing a clear vision and strategy with public sector support, which is resulting in increasing interest from developers and investors – all supporting a new wave of investment in urban centres, together creating great sustainable and healthier places to work, live and enjoy shopping, leisure and cultural opportunities”.
