|Paul Hartley Stockport MBC Conservation Officer|
We will then welcome our speaker Paul Hartley. Paul has been a conservation officer with Stockport MBC for many years. When other councils dispensed with their conservation officers due to cut backs, Stockport Council had the good sense not to follow suit. Paul is known to many in Marple due to his involvement in our abundant heritage. He has spoken at Civic Society meetings in the past on Local Listings and the Oldknow's Legacy project. This time we have asked him to concentrate on conservation in general, including conservation appraisals and other conservation protection that might help us to better care for Marple. Can we extend conservation areas or create new ones for example? Come along to find out more and ask questions of our conservation officer.
We hope to see you at the meeting - family, friends and neighbours are welcome too (N.B. only members can vote for election of officers and committee members).
