This evening I joined hundreds of local residents on Chorlton Green for carols by the Christmas tree. The event was organised by the Save Chorlton Meadows campaign to keep up the campaign in preparation for the crucial meeting of the Planning committee on Thursday. Even Santa turned up to pledge his support for the campaign!
Earlier in the week I had passed on the bad news that the Planning Department was recommending approval of the application, despite the massive public outcry. We now need to concentrate on persuading the councillors on the committee that this development is not appropriate on greenbelt land, so close to home in Chorltonville and Redland Crescent.
