This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was refused by Stockport Sports Trust.

Dear Stockport Sports Trust,

I trust you are fully aware of Cheadle+Marple Sixth Form College's intention to close the Hibbert Lane campus, and in the process deny people in Marple the associated sports facilities (indoor and associated green space).

Could you provide details of correspondence/discussions (together with minutes where available) that the Trust has had with any other parties concerning this ?

Could you also advise what plans the Trust has to ensure that the people of Marple continue to benefit from the much loved sports facilities provided so close to the centre of Marple?

Yours faithfully,

Neil Corrie

Martin Harriman,

Mr Corrie

Dear Martin Harriman,

Thank you for the timely reply. The local MP had cited you as an example of the type of organisation that should be subject to FOI and you have responded to earlier FOI requests.

It's regrettable that you are not able to answer this request and give local people of Stockport your take on this removal of Marple sports facilities.

It's also regrettable that in the very year the UK will be celebrating the London Olympics, it's likely that Marple folk will see bulldozers flattening their sports hall and gym.

I wish the trust all the best in the remainder of Stockport. It's been great having these facilities in Marple.

Kind regards,

Neil Corrie
