Woodland area in Roe Green under Threat A planning application for 16 apartments on the 'vacant' land behind Mulgrave Road and Glen Avenue in Roe Green has been submitted to Salford council.

Plans for a four-storey block of flats in a 'protected' woodland behind the M60 have been revealed, 18 years after similar plans for the site were thrown out.

This area under threat was removed from the Roe Green/Beesley Green Conservation Area by Salford Council in 2019 which has made it easier for a developer to submit these plans.

In a time when there is a threat due to climate change trees are seen as a natural way of removing CO2 from the atmosphere. The development of this site will see the removal of well-established trees which have also acted as an acoustic barrier to residents on Mulgrave and Glen Avenues from the adjacent M60 motorway.

The plans show that access to this development site is from Glen Avenue.

If you wish to object to this development please write to Salford Council Planning Department quoting 20/75126/OUT as the planning reference. The area marked in red is the proposed site.
