Star date: 12th November 2018

SECRETARY OF STATE DISMISSES PEEL HOLDINGS APPEAL TO BUILD 600 HOUSES ON WORSLEY GREENWAY

This morning, the Secretary of State at the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has dismissed Peel Holdings' appeal against Salford City Council's refusal to allow the company to build up to 600 houses in the Broadoak area of the Worsley Greenway.

The Secretary of State agreed with the Inspector that "the proposals would impact negatively on the character and appearance of the Greenway". Noel Gaskell, from RAID, the community group that opposed the development, told the Salford Star "It shows what can be achieved when the general public put their minds to stopping developments that would cause huge problems to the residents."

After two Public Inquiries following Salford City Council's refusal to allow Peel Holdings to build up to six hundred houses in the Broadoak area of the Worsley Greenway, today the Secretary of State at the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government dismissed an appeal by the company.

"Overall he finds...that the developments would fragment and detract from the openness and continuity of the Greenway and would cause unacceptable harm to its character and its value as an amenity and open recreational resource" the Government statement reads.

While the report notes other factors too, such as housing land supply, air quality, highways and education, some of which were more significant than others, his overall conclusion was that Peel Holdings' appeal should be refused because of the 'harmful impact' of the development on the "character and appearance, and openness and continuity, of the Greenway".

The community in Worsley is delighted with the result...

"After more than four years of hard work plus two lengthy Public Inquiries and many fund raising activities, RAID have just been advised that the Secretary of State has refused the application by Peel to build hundreds of houses on Broad Oak North and South, on Worsley Road in Worsley" Noel Gaskell from RAID (Residents Against Inappropriate Development) told the Salford Star

"It shows what can be achieved when the general public put their minds to stopping developments that would cause huge problems to the residents" he added.

Other responses on the RAID Facebook site included...  "Amazing"..."Fantastic news!"...and "A triumph for common sense!"

Just chatting to a couple of mates the other night, and it seems that the two Torys in Kersal are putting the boot in a bit for their electors like the Garidos do in Worsley. I can only say well done, not for being torys, but for putting the boot in. Its a great pity we do not have a few more councilors not afraid to stand up for their electors, people like stormin, mary and joe used to be like.

As I have said many times, just because I hate the labour clowncil, it does not make me a Tory. I for one would turn Worsley courthouse into a residence for the homeless. However, you have to give it to the Garidos.These two old farts always come up trumps when it comes to fighting the Worsley mobs corner. They organise the troops, and they never give up. If the rest of us were as determined and organised as that lot we could get things done. Thing is, we never will be, and thats that.

SALFORD LADY MARGARET MCHALE TURNS ONE HUNDRED AT THE BROUGHTONS

Salford's Margaret McHale turned one hundred this week as her six children and relatives gathered for a huge party at The Broughtons Care Home. Born in Hanky Park, Margaret moved around central Salford, to Ellor Street, Warburton Street and finally to Littleton Road, as part of the slum clearances.

A proper Salford lass, Margaret worked on Lancaster Bombers during the war and as a machinist in Strangeways, and, as the family partied with residents and staff, there were a zillion anecdotes that will echo with loads of local families.
