Stockport has been successful in securing a Townscape Heritage Lottery Fund Stage 1 pass for its GBP 1.8m Rediscovering the Underbanks initiative. This forms part of a wider ambitious programme of investment in the town centre. In order to develop and delivery our proposals for this uniquely interesting and challenging area we wish to appoint a Townscape Heritage Manager.
