£13m plan for offices

[Excerpt from the Metro News, 26/01/07]
THE redevelopment of land next to Stockport's famous pyramid building is moving forward.
Outline plans for a £13.7m office development on the remaining land at Kings Reach Business Park have been submitted to Stockport Council, with a decision due next month.

[I had heard that the council had previously delayed the Gorsey Bank development (on land owned by the Council) until private developments had finished on the north side of the Mersey, to avoid an over-provision of offices. I wonder if these new proposals will upset the balance?
Work has started on Gorsey Bank in as much that the footbridge has been replaced (I don't know if it has been opened to the public yet) and demolition has started on the old factory buildings (most recently operating as a window blind showroom and a garage) on the east side of the Gorsey Bank site.]
