Woodford Neighbourhood Plan

Woodford Neighbourhood Plan 2019 is now part of the Development Plan for Stockport Council following the completion of the appropriate stages of the Plan. As a  recently made Plan, it is fully compliant with current national and borough planning policies and now carries weight in the decision making process on planning applications.

You can view the Woodford Neighbourhood Plan here.

A Flipbook version of the Plan is here.

Please click on the middle bottom right icon to be taken to a full screen flipbook version of the Plan. You can further magnify it using the far left icon.


The Forum was formally approved by Stockport Council on 17th October 2013. Woodford Neighbourhood Forum (WNF) was formed, principally, to encourage responsible development in Woodford whilst protecting the Green Belt. In 2018, it was redesignated by the council for a further five years until October 2023.

Please have a good look round the website, you will find full details of how the Forum began, its constitution, how it operates, what is going on right now and what plans for the future look like.

We would love to keep you informed via email, (being a resident of Woodford is by no means obligatory) so if you would like to receive updates, please complete the signup form. We can assure you that WNF will not part with your details to third parties.

Our Facebook and Twitter pages are also kept up to date with the latest news.
