The Midland has been saved!
Following our campaign to save the historic Midland Pub, we are delighted to announce that common sense has prevailed, and the planners have agreed to move the unnecessary cycle path onto the other side of the A6!
Mark would like to extend his thanks to all those who supported him, by signing the petition, (paper and electronic), Raised the issue with the press, or helped in any other way. Special thanks to John Clark and Stockport and South Manchester CAMRA, Steve Cliffe and colleagues at The Stockport History Society, and Friends of Heaton Norris, for all their hard work. Also Thanks to John Fiddler, who, although situated thousands of miles away in America, put a huge amount of work into the campaign.
If we have left anybody out, our apologies, we couldn’t have done it without ALL of you!
It is Marks intention to organise a celebration once the Christmas rush is over, so watch this space for news!
Thank you all!
The Midland Pub to be demolished for Cycle Path!
Yes, you read that right!
Stockport Council have, today, 11th May 2016, applied for planning permission to build a link road between Travis Brow and the A6 Wellington Road North. Included in the proposal is a shared cycle/pedestrian path which necessitates the destruction of our Community Pub! According to the plans, there is ample room on the OTHER side of the new link road to accommodate another underused cycle path. (See Chestergate and New Bridge Lane to see what we mean!)
Please take the time to call in the pub and sign our petition to get this crazy scheme stopped! (And maybe enjoy a pint of our excellent Real Ales while you are here!)
