Fenced off cutting

The area around the railway cutting that accommodated the rail line linking the Glazebrook to Godley Line with the Ashbury Junction to New Mills Junction line has been fenced off. The cutting will be filled in and 60 houses are to be built on the site.
Bredbury Curve Development
In 2015 plans were put forward for the Bredbury Curve Development. Although recommended for acceptance the plans were rejected in March 2016 LinkExternal link but the plans were subsequently amended slightly and then approved.

The proposal involves the filling in of the existing railway cutting with inert materials and the construction of 60 dwellings with associated new highways, a junction with Stockport Road East, landscaping, parking and amenities.

The site was previously a railway cutting that accommodated a rail line which linked the Glazebrook to Godley Line to the Ashbury Junction to New Mills Junction line. The scheme is designed in such a way that a corridor will be retained along the northern corner of the site that will enable a future tram/train line to be constructed between the Ashbury Junction to New Mills Junction line and Whitefield Road and then onwards towards Stockport Town Centre.
