Protect our green spaces from over-development: There’s a need for more affordable homes, but not at the expense of our green spaces. The last Labour Council alongside Manchester’s Mayor wanted to build on green fields with their delayed GMSF plan. But I’ll oppose inappropriate development and make sure new developments are brown field first. With the roads, schools and health facilities they need.
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.
