Plans to build a multimillion-pound bus station below a new park in Stockport have been given the go-ahead.

Part of a £1bn investment in the town centre, the plans also include a residential block and an upgrading of a section of the Trans Pennine Trail.

They were passed at a meeting of Greater Manchester Combined Authority.

The region’s mayor Andy Burnham said they “demonstrate a clear ambition” for the town to “become a key urban centre in South Manchester”.
