The society is calling for an 'Independent Urban Design Study' of the town to take a fresh look at all the issues relating to modern place-making with the aim of creating a people-friendly place for Marple town centre. This should include meaningful public consultation.
The Minister was clearly interested in what we had to say and we are glad that he wants to be kept informed; we will certainly keep him updated.
