Town Hall talking ... State of the Borough debate

[Excerpt from Cllr Brian Millard's leader, Stockport Times - 23/11/06]

Last week I was able to report that the State of the Borough debate had taken place and had proved highly successful.

Common concerns which emerged from the debates included the rise in carbon dioxide levels, the amount of unwanted and unnecessary packaging from shops and supermarkets and ensuring that Stockport's parks continue to be safe and pleasant place for families to visit. The vast majority of the comments from residents focused on what could be done to ensure Stockport Council remains a strong leader on environmental issues.

There was a wide recognition of the strengths that Stockport has in this area, with residents praising the hard work the Council has done to promote recycling, the support it gives to Friends of the Parks groups and the beautiful public parks throughout the borough.

Many thanks to everyone who participated in these debates and made them such a success and if you have any thoughts on these topics or more generally please get in touch with my colleagues and I.
Councilor Brian Millard, Council Leader
