FOR OUR NEW
We’re creating a new community at Stockport’s Weir Mill, transforming these beautiful buildings into a new place to live and hang out. Sat alongside the River Mersey and the town’s iconic viaduct, Weir Mill is part of the ambitious £1bn town centre regeneration plans being delivered by Stockport’s Mayoral Development Corporation.
Following a two-stage public consultation, which saw overwhelming support for our plans to regenerate the derelict site and restore Weir Mill, we have submitted a planning application to Stockport Council.
Weir Mill started off life as a water powered cotton works in the late 18th century, with the original water wheelhouse and mill building still standing today. Known to have inspired local artist LS Lowry, the mill is an enduring icon of Stockport’s industrial past.
The buildings have been used for a variety of businesses over the years, but are now in a state of disrepair. We have to find a viable long term use for Weir Mill to avoid it being lost forever.

Public consultations are little difficult to hold right now, but it’s important to know what the neighbours think of our plans, so we put together a special, socially-distanced consultation. With live music, craft food and drinks and reserved tables for Stockport locals to come and tell us what they think of our plans.
