As part of the Redrock Development a new square was created on the site of demolished shops on the corner of Brown Street SJ8990 : Brown Street and Prince's Street. Despite running a poll asking people for suggestions to name the new square after a famous Stopfordian the council chose to call it Suffragete Square instead.
Stockport Frog Trail

19 giant frogs were initially installed around Stockport and were around for three months from the 29th June 2019.

"The project is a collaboration between Stockport's Business Improvement District Totally Stockport, local artists, Stockport based businesses and community groups, supported by Stockport Council.

Organised by Totally Stockport, Stockport's Giant Leap celebrates the 1bn programme of investment and development that is regenerating the town, a giant leap forward for Stockport, creating exciting opportunities for business and a destination of choice for residents and visitors.

After the trail closed, 18 of the frogs were auctioned off raising 32,000 for Stepping Hill's Tree House children's ward LinkExternal link
