Turn Moss is green belt land bordering Stretford, Chorlton and the River Mersey. It is an area of meadowland well used and enjoyed by nature lovers, dog walkers and the general public.

Trafford Council want to lease a large area of Turn Moss to Salford City F.C. If the area is built on, the open aspect will disappear and the loss of habitat will affect the biodiversity of Turn Moss which include birds, bats, amphibians, mammals and possibly protected species that live in the natural habitat along the River Mersey corridor, will be forced away. The proposed lighting in the area will affect the wildlife. Ivy Green reserve has bat boxes and yet the bat survey was minimal and completed at the wrong time of the year.

If you would like to make an objection against this planning development, the deadline is: this coming Wednesday 18th April 2018.

You must quote the planning reference 93628/FUL/18 and write the words “I object” and include your full name and address or it will not count.
