Protect Gotherage Lane Park

*Update 9 March 2020* Following our successful campaign in 2016, Tangshutt Fields were classed as an Asset of Community Value. In January 2019 proposals were announced for 200 new houses in Romiley, which included Tangshutt Fields. These proposals came from the Greater Manchester Combined Authority. We opposed these plans and continue to do so. A public consultation about these plans was held, closing in March 2019. The Greater Manchester Combined Authority has not yet published its response to the consultation or any revised plans. We will continue to stand up for protecting our Greenbelt and our community spaces. 


*Original 2016 petition text*

Following rumours that a developer wanted to build houses on the farmer's fields next to Tangshutt, Lisa Smart and the Lib Dems launched a campaign to protect the play park on Gotherage Lane.

Our local community has the power to protect local facilities that we value. It means we can list, and secure, things like the local playing fields, the local pub or shop.

If developers want to come and buy these assets in the future we would have the power to stop them, to take them over if needed, protecting them for ourselves and for future generations.

Lisa said: "I want to work with local residents and local community groups to make sure the play park on Gotherage lane are protected. It's a great facility for residents of the Cherry Tree Estate."

I/we believe the park on Gotherage Lane should be declared a community asset to protect it for the future.
