Protect our green spaces from over-development

Protect our green spaces from over-development: The legacy of the local Labour Council leadership has made it difficult to prevent green-space development. The Greater Manchester Mayor has made this worse with the unacceptable delays to the spatial framework. Chris will continue to do all he can to fight against green-field developments and promote a brown-field first policy in Bolton West and Atherton.

Over the last four years, Chris has fought against local green space developments including Bowlands Hey, Hulton Park and Horwich Golf Course. He has also raised his concerns about the amount of green space put forward for development in the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework and the delays that have given developers the ability to earmark our local green space. Chris will continue to support residents’ fight against green space development.
