PEEL HOLDINGS SALFORD RACECOURSE REJECTED
 

Star date: 14th January 2010

PEEL HOLDINGS TOLD TO STUFF ITS SALFORD PLANS!!!

Following its Mary Burns Award today in the `We're So Green It (Really Is) Unbelievable' category, Peel Holdings has had another eco-snub. This time it's by the Department of Communities and Local Government, which has finally rejected the company's plans for a Forest Park and Racecourse, on the grounds that it is "an inappropriate development in the Green Belt and is in conflict with the Green Belt policies in Salford and Wigan".

The judgement adds that "There would be very clear and very substantial harm to the Green Belt"

Peel has six weeks to challenge the Secretary of State in the High Court over the decision...

@roger jones, just seen your comment on here from 2010, so how many quartly public meetings have you organised in the Eccles/Irlam areas over the last 2 years? Nobody from the coucil has discussed any of the "schemes" you mention with the resdidents of these wards in the last 2 years, we can't get answers to simple questions for gods sake. Oh well don't suppose we will hear from you now until before the elections in 2014, when once again like the rest of Salford' councilours you will promise everything the voters want and then deliver nothing.

If john Whittaker of peel holdings likes the north west that much why doesn't he live there especially round the irlam area. He probably doesn't like the congestion his company has given the area.

The whole relationship between Peel and the Labour run council stinks, almost everything they apply for gets rubber stamped with ease. No one seems willing to ask why one company now has such a stranglehold on the area, who sold them the land in the first place?? I suspect it was probably the Labour council as they seem to be in need of cash flow to bolster failing funds, what will they do once they have sold everything?? It looks like Peel will own enough of the surrounding area to apply for a postcode, the council can change the pink signs to "Welcome you are now in Peel" it will be there soon if this carries on. I would be cautious about Roger's good intentions, his track record doesn't put him in a very good light as far as being accurate with the truth. Also remember his party affiliation to labour as they created the master plan that proposed tearing the heart out of this area

I am not surprised by this Government decision, although I must admit that I would like to see a new racecourse located in an appropriate site within greater manchester. I would also like to see regular public meetings taking place to discuss such issues as farming on chat moss, green belt policy in salford, salford city reds development, port salford etc etc. After the national & local elections are out of the way, if no one else wants to do it, I intend to ensure that quartely public meetings are organised in the Eccles/Irlam area so that we can properly monitor these huge developments & try to ensure the maximum benefits to the local residents.

Oh dear, that's tragic. What am I going to do now? I've been raising this donkey in my back yard in the hope that one day I'd be able to race it at Worsley, and now you're telling me there's no chance of racing within the Salford boundary. He's looking at me now with doe eyes. He wants his daily hay. Oh well, it looks as though it's the knacker's yard for him. (Maybe I'll see the Peelers down there.)

The right decision, it was inappropriate use of green belt. It has dragged on for years now , hopefully that will be it.

For once common sense has prevailed,hopefully this will slow down Peel Holdings aim to develop every inch of land they own,in the sole interest of profit without thougt for anyone but themselves.

SALFORD RESIDENTS LAUNCH NEW SANTA PROTEST IN RESPONSE TO BELLWAY HOMES LEGAL THREATS TO STOP PROTESTS

Star date: 14th December 2018

AS BELLWAY THREATENS INJUNCTIONS AND FINES, SWINTON RESIDENTS RESPOND WITH SANTA PROTEST

"Saturday is the day for reminding Bellway that we have every right to peaceful assembly on a public footpath..."

Two weeks ago, Bellway Homes' solicitors wrote to the Saving Our Neighbourhood campaign - which is objecting to the company's mad construction of 241 houses off Campbell Road in Swinton - threatening injunctions and fines unless it wrote an 'undertaking' not to "interfere and/or attempt to interfere with Bellway's legitimate commercial interests".

In response, tomorrow at noon, residents will hold a special Santa protest at the site entrance..."It's vital that our community makes it clear that a threat from a multi-billion pound developer...will not scare us into signing away our democratic legal rights" states the group.
