  • People asked to nominate a significant Stockport resident for their actions and efforts towards thier community
  • The council will name the square after the local hero nominated by the public 

Calling all Stopfordians, do you know a local hero or heroine? Do you want to let them know they are a treasure to their community?
People are being asked to vote for a community hero and help name Stockport council’s regeneration square.

Stockport Council is creating a public square to connect Prince’s Street and Redrock.  The council would like to name the square after a local resident whose life has held community significance.

The individual should have a connection to Stockport, but most of all their actions, living or in memory of, should hold meaning.

The deadline for submissions is midnight on 25 February.

Councillor Kate Butler said, “Regeneration is first and foremost about people and that’s why we want the people of Stockport to help us name this new square. We want to hear your story about someone important to you and why you think the square should be named after them. It might be someone everyone knows or simply someone important to you. You could even nominate yourself! What’s most important is the story behind your nomination.”

Alternately, there are standpoint machines in the town centre, which can be used to nominate Stockport residence.

They can be found at:

  • The lobby of the Light Cinema, Redrock Stockport
  • Merseyway Shopping Centre (covered mall between JD Sports and Holland & Barratt)
  • Stockport Tourist Information Centre, Stockport Market Place
