OnLine Petition – Save Our Greenfields!

We the undersigned strongly oppose any housing, industrial or commercial development on following sites that have been identified on the GM Spatial Framework Website or any other further expressions of interest in sites in the Tottington and Walshaw areas:- 1) Sheepgate Farm (4.1186 ha) 2) Land at Sheepgate Farm (6.785 ha) 3) Greenmount (12.515 ha) 4)Land at Holcombe Rd, Greenmount (5.0835 ha) 5) Walshaw Brook (11.6897) 6) Land off Bentley Hall Road (67.127 ha).  These sites represent virtually the last of the Greenbelt in Tottington & Walshaw and if developed on would put substantially more pressure on an already over-stretched highways infrastructure, local amenities and services.

We the undersigned also call upon Bury MBC to protect these sites and all other Greenfield sites in the Tottington & Walshaw area in its’ “Local Plan” and call upon Planning Officers and members of the Planning Committee to reject any such planning applications that would threaten to encroach on these Greenfield Sites.

  1. There seems to be an error on the form and I can not sign. I am asked to put an “@” within the address box.


    1. Sorry Rebecca, I’ve kept a record so you will be included in the petition. Hundreds of people have signed with just a few (including yourself) having technical problems


  2. I purchased my property for the wonderful views and the country side + paid a premium to live here , under no circumstances do I want to lose this and also feel we don’t need any more housing / traffic in Walshaw please note there are many wildlife in this area such as Protected bats and frogs.


    1. Hello, I’m sorry it did that to you. I’ve just tested it and it should be working now. No one else has said anything. If the problem still persists then try putting your address in the Comments box.

      Many Thanks
