Protect Chorlton precinct shops & review Chorlton development plans
We would like shopkeepers to stay put until firm plans are in place otherwise the precinct will fall into further disrepair if it is mothballed.
We would like more effort taken to keep the current shops open in Chorlton before any work on the precinct begins. If they leave chances are they won't return.
We would like clarification about plans for the precinct.
GMPF purchased Graeme House and the precinct. The plans from 2017 indicated a retail led development with communal space and some residential space. In about 2020 Councillors indicated a desire to enhance the Chorlton 'brand' and protect our unique character and work closely with shop keepers.
In March 2023 we have learnt that shopkeepers in the precinct were not offered viable alternatives or supported in any way to remain open. They were told to vacate their units on 1st December 2023!
TJ Morris owners of Quality Save have said the shop will close in October and stated that they would 'love to stay in Chorlton'.
The most recent correspondence now stresses 'residential led' development with no mention of communal space or improved or increased retail units.
We want to know what is the overall longterm plan for our
Is there a maximum target for additional housing in the area?
Are we anywhere near?
Is there a target and plan to improve and increase facilities in Chorlton Cross.
