The revised Greater Manchester Spatial Framework proposals, published in January, suggest building 250 houses on and around Tangshutt Fields. This area includes well-used community facilities of Tangshutt Fields including, playing fields, three football pitches, a children’s play area, and outdoor gym. The site is adjacent to Tangshutt Meadow, popular green space, a nature reserve, community orchards and allotments, which are all hugely valued by local people. While there are brownfield sites to develop, Green Belt should not be built upon. Residents also have concerns over the safety of access roads on a site where children currently play. The attached petition, to be presented to Parliament by William Wragg, MP for the Hazel Grove constituency, is in opposition to this proposed development.
