The situation surrounding Pomona, a much loved wildlife area, and the only remaining area of real big greenspace on the Salford Docklands, raises some very big questions
Why such a rush ? Why have people been given such a short space of time to make comments and raise objections ?
Why no public consultation for such a huge project that affects so many people ?
Why the lack of Council publicity on how to object and make comments on the plans ?
The plans have been around since 2004 and there are major housing developments happening in other areas of Greater Manchester so why is the Pomona development being attempted to be rushed through without any real public consultation ?
The internet is abuzz with news of Cecil The Lion and people are shocked and disgusted, but should we also have the same strength of feeling about the Little Ringed Plovers, Skylarks, Lapwings, Otters, Water Voles, Bee Orchids, Kingfishers and Sand Martins who might be having their habitat destroyed at Pomona ?
There is very obvious and public strength of feeling regarding Pomona and this online petition, in just a few days, has collected around a thousand signatures!
