About Woodford

Woodford is a semi-rural, ribbon village in the Metropolitan Borough of Stockport in Greater Manchester, England. It lies just over 5 miles south of Stockport and a tad under 11 miles south east of Manchester on the A5102 road. Woodford is the most southerly point of the Greater Manchester region, close to the Peak District and South Pennines. Wilmslow is to the west, Poynton to the east and Bramhall to the north, Broadly speaking, Woodford consists of approximiately 550 residential properties (as of 2015), some retail outlets, a Church, a traditional pub, a golf course, a War Memorial Community Centre, working farms and open farmland. It also boasted (since 1924), until 2011 the famous Woodford Aerodrome. This will become a new residential development over a period of some ten years, work commenced here in 2015.

Historically part of Cheshire, throughout the Middle Ages Woodford was a hamlet in the parish of Prestbury. It was incorporated into the Urban District of Hazel Grove and Bramhall in 1939 and then into the Metropolitan Borough of Stockport in 1974.

SMBC Call for Brownfield Sites
Stockport Council has asked us to circulate their Call for Brownfield sites below:
Help us put our Brownfield Land to good use
We are currently developing our Local Plan, which will underpin the work required to ensure Stockport continues to be a great place to live, work and do business.
The Local Plan will cover a wide range of development needs for the borough which local people have told us are really important, including new homes, transport and infrastructure – ensuring local places facilitate thriving communities and the economy. It will also reinforce our commitment to protecting the environment and working together to address climate change.
As part of this work, we are looking to identify Brownfield Sites in Stockport that may be suitable for development. Even if you don’t own the land, we would be keen to hear about land you may be aware of, so we can plan to meet Stockport’s growing needs. These sites will be considered before we need to make decisions in respect of other land.
All sites put forward will be assessed against a range of criteria to make sure that they deliver the aims and objectives of the Local Plan. Following this assessment, we will publish the Local Plan document for consultation, which is likely to be in Autumn 2021.
Any suggestions can be submitted until 23 May 2021 at www.stockport.gov.uk/callforsites
If you have any questions, or if you need a printed or electronic copy of the form, email: local.plan@stockport.gov.uk or call 0161 474
