Campaigners lose battle over Pocket Park on Station Road

A four year battle to save a pocket park opposite Trafford Park Station has been lost after developers won their appeal against planning refusal.

Councillor Mike Cordingley said it was sad that residents were losing a valued patch of green in such a densely populated area. "I still have concerns over these apartments even though the designs are much improved from the ones they started with. It's devastating that we won't see the summer blackberry harvesting, or hear the birdsong along here again. It's often patches like this piece of scrub that do as much for wellbeing in neighbourhoods as any amount of National Trust stately homes, and they are no less worthy of preservation."
