Over a 1000 trees have been chopped down BEFORE PLANNING CONSENT on the Garden Festival Site...some with nesting birds in them.We need all the trees we can get to help make oxygen so we can breathe in this polluted world ! Especially being opposite Ellesmere Port's toxic industrial estates.
This is what the property developers want to build.They are also planning to take some of the prom. Surely the council can keep the green space rather than allow more luxury flats to dominate the area? A third of the new luxury apartments in town are still empty!
We need as much parkland as possible in a city and this isn't good enough.A lot of schools have had their playing fields sold off and lots of people don't have gardens so it is vital we keep areas to relax in.
