Chorlton has been the subject of numerous strategies and plans. This Vision has drawn on their key themes and priorities for driving improvement in our district centre. The Vision statement has also been developed with the input of local community groups and residents.
The team behind the Vision carried out an outreach and engagement campaign in March 2022, attending a series of meetings and events and running a stall at Chorlton’s monthly market. The team talked to hundreds of residents, businesses and community groups to identify the issues that they felt mattered most. An extended network was reached through project and steering group partners and supporting print materials were distributed through the area. A colourful website outlined the draft Vision, its background and rationale, as well as acting as a conduit for online responses to a series of open questions. Accompanying social media promoted the project, with Facebook advertising purchased to raise additional awareness through the area.
Below are some of the background strategies, reports and consultation findings which helped inform the Vision.
