Marple South & High Lane

Councillor Colin MacAlister

Colin is an experienced campaigner and local business owner living with his family in the heart of the ward. He has dedicated 30 years of his life so far to being a councillor and serving our community. As the cabinet member for Economy and Regeneration on Stockport Council for the last year, he has been fighting to protect our local green spaces to make sure Marple South and High Lane remains a lovely place to live and work. Colin wants to continue making a positive difference to our area - taking action on anti-social behaviour and making sure we have sensible policies that work to tackle speeding.
