Stockport has received large sums of investment such as the £1 billion regeneration of the town centre designed to modernise, transform and improve the towns leisure, recreation and first-class connectivity.
There have also been huge investments into other areas of the town, such as the £42 million transport interchange which brought a new bus station and is now an important aspect of the town, increasing accessibility to people who reside outside of Stockport.
The most noteworthy development in recent times is the Red Rock leisure complex. This £45 million build hosts several attractions such as The Light Cinema, Berretto Lounge, Mangobean and The Gym Stockport as well as some big-name brands like Zizzi and Pizza Express.
