Residents of Whalley Range horrified as Manchester City Council arrive today with chainsaws to fell up to 400 trees as part of the Alexandra Park Development.
Residents have been writing and challenging the Council since the extent of felling became known in December 2012. Residents met with the Council in late December to raise their concerns and draw attention to a petition of now over 2000 signatures objecting to the felling. Despite this MCC appear to be intent on progressing with the plans.
Residents are gathering in the park today to challenge the council and plead for a delay in fellings until a better solution can be found. Please come and support us!
