UK-based Wates has begun construction work on the new £45M Redrock Stockport leisure and retail development.

The development is part of Stockport Council’s £1bn ‘investing in Stockport’ programme and was marked with a ground-breaking ceremony.

Redrock Stockport will feature 7,000sq m of leisure, retail and restaurant space that includes a 360-space NCP multi-storey car park and a ten-screen cinema.

Eamonn Boylan, chief executive at Stockport Council, said: “I am thrilled that we have reached this landmark stage on Redrock Stockport, and that our vision of transforming this area of the town centre is becoming a reality. 

“The new cinema, restaurants and retail units will bring a new vibrancy to this area of our town centre making a great place to visit and spend time.”

Wates and Stockport Council are ensuring that local SMEs are involved in the project and that on-site training and employment opportunities are created.

Wates Construction North West business unit director, Tony Shenton said: “There is an anticipation growing for Redrock Stockport and for good reason; it is going to become a great asset for the town, the economic benefits of which will keep on building.

“As with all of our projects, employing a local supply chain will be a key part of our delivery of Redrock Stockport, as will our ongoing engagement with and support of neighbouring businesses.”
