[QUOTE=DuncanC]Why is the A6 set to get busier? Hopefully the bypass to the M60 at Bredbury will get the go ahead which will eventually relieve the pressure on the A6 through Hazel Grove immeasurably.

The old golf course at Mirrlees is not green belt land. It is not a public amenity. There is no right of access to it. It is an overgrown wilderness on the site of an old factory.

If not used for housing it would make an excellent and much needed car park for Stepping Hill hospital.[/QUOTE]

Do you realise how many car parks the Grove already have. I wouldn't like to try to calculate how much pollution is being pumped out from hundreds of cars using them each day. And yet you propose another one. Then there's the white elephant of a car park built at the wrong end of the Grove that was built nearly 2 years ago but still remains almost empty. Yet another example of bad planning. Poorly utilised under promoted utter waste of space.

And as for the bypass.. that's been in the pipeline since I first moved here and that was over 30 years ago. So I'm not counted on that idea to improve the pollution anytime soon.

I never said Mirrlees was greenbelt but it was always an open space used for recreational purposes and is now a much needed Green space to be protected for the benifits it gives to the surrounding community. I'm not against sympathetic development such as the new homes recently built on the factory site of Mirrlees. Just any further development.

I don't see it as overgrown wilderness but a sanctuary for wild life, and flora that's been here for hundreds of years that provides each day much needed oxygen to our overly devoloped overly polluted area.
