Greg Stanton

Opposition Lead Member for Finance and Councillor for Didsbury West

Greg grew up and went to school just over the border in Stockport before moving to Didsbury back in 2009 – he immediately got involved in local politics having experienced what the Liberal Democrats were doing locally in the area.
As an enthusiastic resident and our Communities Spokesperson he can often be found at meetings of Didsbury Civic Society and West Didsbury Residents Association, and as a local business owner the monthly meeting of Didsbury Traders Association.
Greg is particularly passionate about developing a sustainable economy across Parrs Wood, Wilmslow Road & Burton Road with a focus on the right balance of day time and evening trade - to meet the needs of both local residents and those visiting.
He is a very firm believer in ensuring the Council meet their obligation to incorporate affordable housing in all new developments, to ensure nobody is priced out, and in active enforcement of licencing & planning conditions, to bring to an end to rogue licencees and landlords.
Most recently Greg has recently joined the Friends of Didsbury Community Wood team and is looking forward to the disused forest land on Wilmslow Road coming back into community use.
