We’re very excited to announce that Manchester City Council has been confirmed as the buyer of the Station South building (975-977 Stockport Road) and adjacent land.
It’s been a nail-biting few months since the owners of the building, Railway Paths Limited (RPL), put the building up for sale. While we’ve got a sturdy lease, the uncertainty of a new owner caused some obvious concerns.
Thankfully, we’ve recently been informed that MCC has recognised the importance of Station South to Levenshulme and the wider community in Greater Manchester. With the support of the council, we have been assured that our tenancy will remain the same and our long-term tenure is protected, so that we can continue to provide a community hub in our local area.
Working alongside the Council and Manchester Active, we are looking forward to further strengthening the sustainable future of Station South here on Stockport Road.
The Council’s recently published strategy puts active travel at the forefront of the City’s mission to create healthier lives for Mancunians. Their ambition to double the number of people who cycle in Greater Manchester by 2028 is aligned with our mission of making cycling accessible to all.
Alongside Manchester City Council and Manchester Active, we’re excited to continue to build on the investment made in Station South by so many people and organisations and even more so to have you along for the ride as we shape our plans for the long term.
Thanks for the messages of support and your patience over the last couple of months. If you have questions about MCC’s acquisition of the property, you can get in touch with us at email@example.com.
