Saturday 3rd November 2012
Meet at 2pm at Hasty Lane, near Manchester Airport, WA15 8UT
SEMA is organising a family friendly walk in the greenfields and woodlands of Sunbank in protest against Manchester Airport’s proposed plans for a ‘World Logistics Hub’.
These plans will lead to the eviction of local residents, the destruction of valuable greenspace and an increase in traffic congestion, noise pollution and carbon emissions from the Airport’s freight sector. The walk will be an opportunity for local residents and campaigners to come together to show their opposition to the expansion before the final decision is made on the application by the Planning and Highways Committee on the 22nd November 2012.
Join us to oppose these unnecessary and destructive expansion plans. We will gather at Hasty Lane, and then walk to Sunbank around the affected area. Our route will take us through the green space earmarked for destruction, with opportunities to hear from local people and see local wildlife in its threatened habitat. The walk will finish with warm drinks in the nearby Romper pub.
