At a packed AGM meeting last night, we are pleased to report that Carole McCann was nominated as our candidate in the forthcoming local election to Stockport Council on Thursday 2nd May 2019. To find out more about Carole and the elections, please click here.
Of course a new candidate means that we also sadly have to say goodbye to Cllr Sylvia Humphreys who has worked incredibly hard for Heald Green for 19 years. Sylvia and her husband Norman have both been involved with the Ratepayers’ Association for approximately forty years and it was fascinating for all those present last night to hear about all the initiatives they have been involved in over the years, including the specially chartered train journeys to London from Heald Green station as well as trips abroad. Latterly Norman has served as the Treasurer for the Association but both Sylvia and Norman have decided that now is the right time to step back from their respective roles and hope to be able to spend more time with their grandchildren.
During the recent consultation on the latest iteration of the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework which proposed an additional 1700 homes in Heald Green, The Ratepayers’ Association convened a working group to prepare the Association’s official submission in response to the consultation. You can download a copy of the Ratepayers’ submission by clicking here.
