Stop the A6-M60 Bypass: save Stockport’s beautiful Goyt Valley and green spaces
Stockport Council will decide in Spring 2017 whether to go ahead with a bid for up to £600 million from the Government to build the four-mile A6 to M60 Bypass.
The dual-carriageway will devastate one of Stockport’s treasures, the Lower Goyt Valley, as well as the beautiful Poise Brook Valley and green spaces in Offerton, Hazel Grove and Lower Bredbury.
Along the route, residents’ quality of life will suffer from noise, disturbance, visual intrusion and increased pollution.
The Bypass itself is likely to be plagued by congestion. Roads leading to it will be jammed at peak hours.
Yet many councillors including those from areas along the route intend to support the Bypass. We have very little time left to stop them voting to commit a terrible act of vandalism. Please sign this petition and ask your friends to add their support.
This petition will be delivered to:
- Stockport Council Leader: Alex Ganotis
- Executive Councillor: Kate Butler
- Lib Dem Leader: Iain Roberts
- Councillor: Mags Kirkham
- Councillor: Lisa Smart
- Councillor: Christine Corris
- Councillor: Stuart Corris
- Councillor: Laura Booth
- Councillor: Wendy Meikle
