I was very disappointed to find out today that the Labour run Planning Committee has ignored local residents and 15 Wythenshawe councillors and forced through plans to demolish two cottages to make way for a freight terminal and 4 lane dual carriageway at Manchester Airport. Only Labour Councillors on the Committee voted for the plans.
I support a sustainable Airport, but this development is completely wrong. Perhaps this is why the Council didn't include the airport in their Climate Change plans! It also raises the question of what is the point of electing Labour Councillors if they can be so easily ignored by their Labour colleagues. Like the closure of Ewing School, this is another example of Labour ignoring the wishes of local people.
