“This development in Trafford – linked to the neighbouring airport city expansion – is likely to prove controversial.
The plan allocates a large slice of land south of Ridgeway Road in Timperley and stretching round and down to Davenport Green as suitable for 3,300 mostly luxury homes and 50,000 sqm of office space.
It notes that this site includes some green belt, but says that thanks to urban development nearby it no longer feels like open countryside – and stresses sports fields such as those at Bowdon rugby club would be protected.
The location would be 'attractive' for families and could sustain an entirely new community, it says, noting that the land has 'long been identified' as somewhere that could support airport-related development.
Nevertheless nearby residents are unlikely to be impressed, having repeatedly opposed the development of green space in Davenport Green over the years.
The fields have long been viewed as an essential buffer between the airport and communities and were the subject of a long battle five years ago to keep them out of Trafford council's development strategy.”

Here is what is on the map for development.

We have installed a number of updates to the scripts that deive this website. 

Most bugs should now be sorted out.

The Planning Deadline is over – What NOW?

Well, first, you are still able to send in any objections, write to the planning department if you have not already done so, and encourage your neigbours and friends to send in their objections. Objections will be taken into consideration untill the application goes before the planning committe.  

As this is written (5th September 2016) the planning portal is now accepting "public" comments please visit HERE AND MAKE YOURS

This planning application will not be passed under “Delegated Powers” and it will have to go before Trafford Council planning committee, and this is very likely to be November (it could be October) Due to the complex nature of this application its could even go into the New Year 2017.

Many of the Councillors who sit on the planning committee are from outside this local area, and until the actual planning committee papers/agenda are served upon them, most will not be aware about this application.

All of the Councillor details are in the public domain, and you are within your rights to contact them to let them know what your feelings are.

This is not like writing to the planning department, where your reasons to object should soley be on planning grounds, you can write to the planning committee members and express your own personal feelings.

So please do contact all of the planning committee members, and this includes the reserves (substitutes)  with your concerns and if you have a copy, send them your objection letter.
You can also invite members of the planning committee to where you live to show them why you are objecting and let them hear your concerns.

With time running out, now is the time to start sending in the letters, and spread the word. That We need to let the planning committee know what is going on, and the disruption that this is causing to local community cohesion.

This item appears in the Jewish Telegraph August 12 2016

Eruv plan ‘damaging interfaith relations’

THE proposed Hale eruv will destroy strong interfaith links within the area, claims the son of the man who was renowned for building bridges between local Jewry and other communities. Mark Guterman, son of Henry Guterman, who received an MBE for his interfaith work, told the Jewish Telegraph of his “sadness” at the damage he believed is being caused to interfaith relations by the plans.
Behind the project are Rabbi Joel Portnoy and the South Manchester Eruv Committee.
An electronic petition was started by campaigners from South Trafford Against The Eruv, but was disabled by site administrators after “inappropriate content” was posted, despite reaching more than 400 signatures.
Mr Guterman, 55, said: “The arrogant ‘we don’t care as long as we get what we want’ attitude by unnamed funders of the project is ruining all the work my late father did for the community.
“These plans have caused hate-filled outbursts and are hijacking the proposals — which the eruv trust were warned about when they first announced plans in 2014 by myself and a colleague at meetings both publicly and privately.
“I’m not against the concept of an eruv, but I am against the trouble and divisiveness it is causing in this area.” The Hale-born property developer asked: “Why should we impose, and be seen to try and take over the area?”
The route of the proposed eruv, which will see the erection of 95 steel poles attached by a wire, encompasses roads in Altrincham, Timperley, Hale and Hale Barns, as well as sites on Green Belt land, the South Hale Conservation Area and the Hale Station Conservation Area.
Mr Guterman continued: “I grew up in Hale when there wasn’t a synagogue and there was a great community spirit between all types of people.
“It is wrong for these people who preach a message of religious peace to appear to not care about their neighbours.
“They are pulling apart all of the interfaith work that my father, who created countless interfaith groups, and many others, have done over many years to bring everyone together.
“It is fair to say that 90 per cent of the Jewish people that I have spoken to are against this, but they are afraid to lift their heads above the parapet.
“It was stated at the public meeting by the rabbi that it would only affect between 10-20 families, at best. I call upon the funders to show us who they are and listen to what is being said by the vocal majority.”
Mr Guterman continued: “I am convinced that this will pass the planning stages, initially or by appeal, but the damage it will do is being ignored by the funders who are ploughing on regardless.
“The petition which was taken down had been taken over by antisemites — which the eruv committee were warned about.
“Building a synagogue, mosque or church on your own land is fine — but when you encroach on your neighbours who don’t want it then problems will occur.”
