Slattocks Mayoral Hustings a resounding success

Slattocks Hustings for the very first Gtreater Manchester Mayoral election on 4th May 2017 was a resounding success said those local residents who attend.

“A big thanks to all those who were able to come along to Smalley Hall last night” said Gordon Tilstone, Chair of SOS-Save Our Slattocks.

Feedback is that you appreciated the opportunity to hear from and put some tough questions to the four candidates.

Thanks also goes to the candidates for sharing their thoughts/views.

So now I urge you to vote on 4th May for your Greater Manchester Mayor.

Callings Local Experts

The next version of the Greader Manchester Spatial Framework [GMSF] is due out in September followed by a second consultation period.

That isn’t that far away.

SOS – Save Our Slattocks group intends to submit comments/objections to this second GMSF consultation alongside your own letters and emails.

To help us do this we need YOUR help, our local experts.

Many of you will have local knowledge about wildlife; water courses/springs; local history; Stakehill Distribution Park; geology/geography; planning: to name but a few.
All these ‘snippets’ of local knowledge will help us put together a substantial, considered and well researched submission to the GMSF consultation.

Every little helps, so if you think you might have local information get in touch.

Please send information or contact me via email so that it doesn’t get lost in the general info on The Slattocks Telegraph:

Thank you

Good turnout at Rally

I’m proud to call myself from Slattocks after seeing the great turnout of locals at today’s Save Our Greenbelt Rally in Albert Sq Manchester. We can truly say we ‘pulled our weight’ today especially as we have a fairly small population.
Thanks to everyone – especially Joanne & Kevin our First Aiders and AJ for joining the stewarding team.And let’s not forget The Bono of Slattocks – Ian Briggs – for the sound track to the event. Also thanks to Kallum & crew for videoing the event. Well done to you all.
Let’s keep up the pressure -watch this space for news.
