Following completion of an extensive £3million infrastructure project to provide Poynton with equal priority shared space  for pedestrians and road users it is intended that the  environment created will help to revitalise the local economy by making Poynton and the local area even more attractive in which to live, work and visit.

The innovative high quality scheme sets Poynton apart from other trading centres providing an opportunity for the village and its wider economy to benefit from the unique nature of the presentation of Park Lane and its junction with the A523 London Road.

Let’s Talk Shop Ltd is currently engaged in meeting with businesses operating in Poynton to identify the impact of the improvements and the aspirations for businesses operating in the village. The work follows an initial exercise undertaken in 2010 prior to commencement of the scheme and will help to draw conclusions as to the economic impact that the scheme will have on Poynton.
