The Railway Pub and Carpetright store would be demolished under the developer’s plans to create a 16,000 sq ft unit on the Great Portwood Street site.

Morbaine predicts the project, which would see retail space at the site increased by just under 2,000 sq ft, would increase turnover by £900,000 a year, according to a planning statement. 

The developer has been in talks with various potential occupiers for the Stockport site but no deal has been signed as of yet. 

Stockport Council is due to approve Morbaine’s plans when the authority’s planning committee meets on Thursday…..
