Marie Louise Gardens Planning Application Approved

The latest planning application to build within the grounds of Marie Louse Gardens on Palatine road has sadly been accepted.

A development of two buildings which replace the parks gardeners lodge and use some land to the north will go ahead.

You can read the full story in a blog post by Councillor Martin Eakins (Lib-dem Wythenshawe and Sale East). Be warned that his clear fustration at the decision comes out as mildly bad language.
