SALFORD RESIDENTS TO DEMONSTRATE AGAINST BELLWAY HOMES AND SALFORD CITY COUNCIL
 

Star date: 14th September 2018

SALFORD COMMUNITY FLEXES MUSCLES OVER RAMPANT DEVELOPMENT

Saving Our Neighbourhood
Saturday 15th September 10am-noon
Campbell Road Playing Fields

Tomorrow morning, residents will be holding a peaceful, family friendly demonstration against the Bellway Homes development at Campbell Road Playing Fields, near Swinton, which is shoving up 241 houses on green space land. But it goes much further. The demo is also about Salford City Council's planning policies...

"We're joining forces with other neighbourhoods all over the city to say this rampant development of every bit of open space has to stop" says Carol Boyce of Saving Our Neighbourhood.

Last week, Saving Our Neighbourhood held a packed public meeting at Salford Civic Centre announcing a new group to unite all the Salford campaigns against rampant development, with direct action...or "we're going to have nothing left"...*

Tomorrow, Saturday 15th September at 10am, the group is holding its first protest at Campbell Road Playing Fields, where Bellway Homes is shoving up 241 properties, after all sorts of dodgy goings on at the Salford Council planning panel meeting which gave the development the green light. The organisers are hoping that campaigners against developments all over Salford will join them....

"It was clear at our public meeting last week that there is an appetite for holding the Salford City Council planning panel to account" says Carol Boyce, Chair of Saving Our Neighbourhood "They are charged with creating our future here in Salford and they don't have a plan.

"As people, we have power if we use it so even though the planning application by Bellway on our open space was railroaded through, despite massive local opposition, we're not stopping" she adds "We're joining forces with other neighbourhoods all over the city to say this rampant development of every bit of open space has to stop.

"It doesn't help the housing crisis and it destroys what quality of life we have and puts our health in jeopardy" she explains "We're holding a peaceful family friendly protest at the entrance to the Bellway site on Campbell Road Fields on Saturday morning at 10am - early enough so we can enjoy the rest of the day, football, festivals, whatever - to start what we're confident will become a citywide movement that forces the Salford City Council planning panel to make a plan that works for everyone."

Apparently, Bellway is expecting a big protest, so the organisers are hoping to make their expectations a reality...

This battle is over. They have won, but have a good day out anyway. At least you will know what a bunch of bastards our council are. The day of reckoning will come one day, the people will perhaps learn I hope.
