Dear Friends of Bury Folk Members you are invited to attend the AGM.
27th February at 19:30hrs @ Elton Liberal Club
New George Street, Bury, BL8 1NW
All officers are willing to continue in their roles on the Committee. However, if anyone wishes to nominate themselves for a position on the Committee or has any matters that they wish to be discussed at the AGM then please notify the Secretary in writing prior to the AGM. Please could all members contact the Membership Secretary in advance to indicate if they are attending. Thank you.
If the housing crisis and lack of brownfield site figures quoted by GMSF and Government propaganda, are to be believed, it means we are in a situation where we can’t afford to build luxury for a few. ‘Density’ must be the new buzzword.
A trend for people living alone means we need to build suitable property. Local Planning Authorities suggest 23.5 dwellings per hectare (dph). Compare with 500dph in areas of London and recent new builds in Bury at a density of nearer 15dph!
Until a minimum density is reinstated, we will be held to ransom by developers building large family homes on greenfield sites, thus condemning the local community to a massive reduction in green space, clean air and a reduced quality of life.
Proposals have been made by the Greater Manchester Combined Authority to release wide areas of green belt land so that it can be used for development.
How can you help?
