Welcome to the Woodford Community Council Website


Woodford is a small village situated to the south of Stockport on the Cheshire border resting within beautiful open countryside.


Woodford Community Council gives residents a voice on matters affecting their community and liaises with Stockport MBC and other statutory bodies as required. It is run entirely by volunteers, financed by donations and governed by a written Constitution.

Disappointment for Woodford


It was disappointing to learn that the Secretary of State has decided not to call in the planning application, DC/053832, by Harrow Estates for the Woodford Aerodrome site. (Click here for details.) PDF attached This leaves SMBC free to finalise the details of the approval of the hybrid planning application, as well as the associated demolition and road development applications. It is hoped that the Council and developers will now work with the local community in managing the integration of this significant development into the village of Woodford.


Thank you to all those in the community, including local councillors and our MP, who helped the cause to limit the scale of development by writing to the Secretary of State and supporting the local community initiatives.
