Here’s the presentation from the Slattocks Community Meeting on 2nd Feb 2019 at Thornham Cricket Club
Shocked resident heard of the extent of proposed Greenbelt loss in the revised GMSF on Saturday 2nd February 2019 at a meeting in Thornham Cricket Club.
Many were shocked to hear that the revised GMSF plan is still looking at taking a large area of local Greenbelt.
The local allocation [GM 2 Stakehill] if it goes ahead, will see the building of 900 new houses and an extra 250,000sq metres of industrial units swallowing up the fields around Chesham Estate, Slattocks and Stakehill. The area stretches across to Chadderton leaving a ‘corridor’ of Greenbelt between Thornham Lane and the A627M link road.

The Greater Manchester Combined Authority, which comprises the 10 local Councils, will shortly publish the much awaited consultation to the revised GMSF.
Every local resident will be able to comment on the plan between 21st January until 18th March, a period of eight weeks.
Comments can be made online [details to follow] or in writing.

Please come along to our local community meeting:
Read what MPs representing Greater Manchester constituencies have to so about the revised plan:
Anyone using the local lanes, footpaths and bridleways will have seen piles of fly tipping from time to time [see photos below]. Nobody likes it.
Usually it happens under cover of darkness so the perpetrators aren’t seen. We suspect most of this is done by:
– unscrupulous builders who don’t want to pay at Council tips.
– drug growers needing to get rid of old plants.
For some reason, ordinary household waste is dumped – why?
Are people using a company vehicle to dump their household waste?
Local tips have long opening hours:
Please take photos of fly tipping and a note of the location, then report it to the Council.

Many people have said there is a shortage of houses across England.
Some say its a crisis.
Have a read and make your own mind up.
Here’s a recording made at a recent ‘Ask Andy’ (Burnham) event.
In the clip we hear a couple of questions about housing and the Greenbelt in relation to the next draft of the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework [GMSF]

The need to get away from choked-up roads when we can is vital to protect our health and those of our families.
If there was ever the need to prove why local Greenbelt must be protected, then here it is.
But is the solution to introduce charging zones for traffic?
Take a look at the Greater Manchester Clean Air Campaign . The trouble with this is that it doesn’t include motorways.
