We have objected to plans to develop part of the Reddish Vale Country Park, Stockport, for housing. Countryside Properties (UK) Ltd wants to build 99 houses there, on land north of Blackberry Lane.
The society, in its objection letter to Stockport Council, has pointed out that the land is green belt and public open space — one of the last green lungs in Stockport.
This country park offers opportunities for quiet enjoyment and games, and for children to play and run. Such open spaces in urban areas are vital for people’s physical and mental health and wellbeing.
This is the wrong site for house building. Local people desperately need this green space. We have urged the council to reject the application.
