Reject Plans for a Supermarket in Sale Moor
This petition had 1,562 supporters
Developers are planning to demolish our community car park to build a supermarket on it. We currently have a council owned car park with 90 spaces which is used to serve a shopping area of over 70 independent traders. Trafford council own the land and would appreciate the money gained from selling the land. The IMO car wash and a private residence will also be sold off to the developer should planning approval be given.
If this plan goes ahead it will cause unprecedented traffic congestion in an already congested one way system in the centre of our village. It will also increase the traffic on Temple road (the road directly opposite the planned supermarket) which contains two primary schools and already suffers from bad parking congestion at peak school times.
The local traders will be affected too and if our two greengrocers, two butchers, two bakers and other small traders close then we will lose the essence and heart of our village and will just be left with empty shops.
The current car park is where many local traders park to go to work and they will be displaced with the introduction of short term parking restrictions (1.5 or 2 hrs). Traders will park on surrounding residential roads which will be the only option and residents will get frustrated. Trafford council have already stated that they will introduce resident parking permit schemes and residents will be charged to park outside their own homes.
Within a mile radius of this site we already have Aldi, Asda, Sainsbury's, Tesco and M&S food. We have plenty of local supermarket shopping options and really value Sale Moor as an alternative to supermarket shopping.
If this supermarket comes into Sale Moor it will dominate and decimate Sale Moor. Please help us try and Save our village by signing this petition.
