Mark Hunter MP and the Lib Dem team are opposing plans by Cheshire East Conservatives to build 2,500 new houses near Handforth Dean, pouring even more traffic onto the A34 in rush hour.
Mark said “Instead of spreading new housing around the county, the Conservatives say they want to build this huge development on the greenbelt right on the Stockport border where traffic and other problems will cause huge problems at the Kingsway/Gatley Road junction. Lib Dem-led Stockport Council has been highly critical of the plans and I will fight the Conservatives to make sure local interests are protected.”
Councillor Keith Holloway added “The Kingsway junction is one of the busiest in Greater Manchester. The development the Tories want to build on the greenbelt would see it get much worse.”13 Comments
