Stockport Council are hoping to open up a new town centre hub including visitor information, local history displays, access to Council information and services, internet access with digital support, a shop and a library. The new One Stockport Hub would occupy the front facing unit in Merseyway which was until recently occupied by Argos. It will come under the banner of One Stockport, a Council initiative to support local business, the voluntary sector and people in communities as we move out of lockdown.
This would replace the current Central Library on Wellington Road, which as a listed building, the Council is hoping to repurpose once it can be made Covid secure.
As this is quite a major change, Stockport MBC are currently consulting local residents for their views on the project
