Barbara Keeley, has requested to speak at the Broadoak Planning Inquiry on Tuesday 17th June to put forward objections to the proposed development of 600 houses.
The Inquiry is taking place from 10th June to 19th June at the Novotel in Worsley to consider an appeal to allow the development of 600 houses on land to the north and south of Worsley Road and land at Aviary Field in Worsley.
Barbara has campaigned alongside local people against the proposals to develop the Broadoak area for housing and is calling for the green open land to be protected.
“This land is part of the Worsley Greenway, an historically important area of green open space used for walking and recreation and leisure.
Salford Councillors voted against allowing the original planning application and I know a large number of people locally object to the proposed development.
“Building such a large number of houses on this land would bring more traffic and congestion to one of the busiest junctions of the M60 motorway and on to local roads which are already heavily congested. It would add strain on to local services such as schools and GP surgeries. I believe the proposed development would have a negative effect on the quality of life of people in this area.
“I will be raising objections on behalf of local people at the Planning Inquiry. I will also ask for this green open space to be protected from development. I hope that the Planning Inspector and the Secretary of State Eric Pickles will listen to the concerns raised by me, residents and local councillors and uphold the decision to refuse planning permission to develop the land at Broadoak.”
