Stockport named North West’s Best Place to Live

A great boost for Stockport as it has been named the North West’s Best Place to Live in the annual Sunday Times Best Places to Live Guide.

The Times state that the town has taken the top spot in the region’ rankings when judges highlighted the changes taking place that are transforming the fortunes of the town centre.

The Sunday Times judges said ” the town in Greater Manchester is in the throws of a mighty metamorphosis that is turning it into one of the most exciting towns around.  The conversion of the vast Weir Mill into a new neighbourhood is well underway.

The new interchange project will link buses and trains around a new park while the historic streets around the Market Hall and the Underbanks are filling up with a joyous collection of funky independent businesses. It’s functional and family friendly too, with unbeatable rail connections, parks, sports clubs and good value houses up and down the property ladder.”

Looks like 2024 is going to be a big year for Stockport.
