Mayor of Stockport visits development at former Cranford Golf Site in Heaton Mersey Stockport


The Mayor of Stockport, Councillor Adrian Nottingham has paid a return visit to view progress at Great Places’ £24 million flagship housing development at the former Cranford Golf Centre in Heaton Mersey, Stockport.

Cllr. Nottingham met with members of the project team to view progress at The Poplars development since attending the official start of the project in May last year. The Mayor also visited the recently launched sales suite and had the opportunity a look around one of the soon to be completed homes.

The Poplars, delivered in partnership with Breck Homes, will provide 106 new homes, a mixture of two, three, and four-bed affordable houses and apartments for social rent, shared ownership (available through Plumlife Homes) and a further five homes for market sale (through Cube Homes).

Following its merger with Equity Housing Group in 2020, The Poplars is Great Places’ inaugural development in Stockport, meeting its commitment to build much-needed affordable new homes across the borough.

Helen Spencer, Executive Director of Growth at Great Places, said:

“We’re delighted to have welcomed back Cllr. Nottingham for him to view progress on our flagship development to Stockport, our first in the borough since our merger with Equity Housing Group.

“Great Places is committed to addressing the housing crisis and The Poplars provides a range of affordable homes and options to buy and let for the local community in what is a highly sought after area.”

Mayor of Stockport, Councillor Adrian Nottingham, said:

“It was great to see the excellent progress that has been made in the 12 months since I last visited. This is clearly a high quality sustainable housing development in one of our many vibrant local communities, and with houses ready to be occupied in the very near future I wish our new Stockport residents every happiness and best wishes for the future.”

Dave Evans, Commercial Director at Breck Homes said:

“It was a pleasure to welcome members of the Great Places project team and the Mayor of Stockport Adrian Nottingham back to site for the first time since he officially started construction back in May 2021, the progress and transformation of the site since his first visit has been excellent and we now look forward to delivering the much-needed affordable homes to customers in collaboration with Great Places”

The first shared ownership homes’ sales launch will be from 26 May and will include 14  three-bed homes with the first handovers are expected in August and September 2022.
