On Saturday, 24th April the Warrener Street Car Park was officially reopened, following the successful public campaign to preserve it.
In September 2009, a number of residents and shopkeepers received a letter from a Manchester firm of property experts commissioned by Trafford MBC outlining the instruction to assess the existing amenity of Warrener Street car park and its immediate surroundings, which was at a cost of £5000 to the tax payer. One of the considerations of the assessment was to investigate compulsory purchase orders on the businesses in the immediate vicinity to redevelop the site. The redevelopment considered was a new supermarket.
Trafford Heritage Society conducted a survey of local residents and businesses to ascertain public opinion about the assessment. The overwhelming consensus was for the car park to remain and to remain free, as well as for it to be resurfaced. Trafford Heritage Society then coordinated a petition for local people to indicate their opposition to any redevelopment and to communicate their wish for the car park to remain open, free and for it to be adequately maintained. More than 3000 people signed the petition within a short time.
In November 2009, Trafford MBC then confirmed the site would not be redeveloped. To show their goodwill towards the residents of Sale Moor, the Council agreed to resurface the car park. This was completed in early 2010 and was officially reopened on Saturday by the Mayor Cllr David Higgins.
Sale Moor Traders Partnership provided a range of stalls and activities from local businesses and charities. The event was well attended by local people and council representatives. Matthew Colledge, Leader of Trafford Council said he was delighted to be at the opening and:
People are very pleased that their car park here in Sale Moor has not just been saved but its actually been refurbished as well and its of great benefit to the centre here, its a buzzing centre and we want to keep it that way, which is the whole reason why we have ensured that this work has been done to demonstrate were keen to preserve centres like this to future prosperity.
In response to concerns over future charging, Matthew Colledge said:
I just want to reassure all people; customers, residents and the community there will be no charging on this site. It will remain a free parking site
Trafford Heritage Society is very pleased the Council has listened to the views of the local community and hopes this will continue.
The Mayor, Cllr David Higgins, will do the honours at 10.30am and this will be followed by a host of activities laid on by the Sale Moor Traders Partnership.

Trafford Heritage Society supports the campaign to prevent this happening for many reasons including support of local shop owners, traffic concerns (the area is congested enough) and concerns that due process has not been followed.

We are also delighted to have support for our campaign from the Conservative party, who have told us that they do not support the building of flats on 85 Broad Road. They also told us they will support residents in “opposing unreasonable developments”.
With support from two major political parties, it is hoped our campaign will have the success it deserves.
"...The Labour Councillors for Priory Ward have been concerned about the deteriorating state of this house for some time. However, we have objected to the current planning application as the proposed development is far too large for the site, will cause a loss of privacy and amenity for neighbours and may set a precedent for further developments which will change the character of this area..."

We need your help!
We started a petition for 85 Broad Road. There are proposals at the council to demolish the house that is there at present and to build 13 bed apartments* with 9 parking spaces*. We’re objecting to this on the following grounds:
1. The destruction of an aesthetically pleasing house to build 13 apartments* will not enhance the area
2. The site is not large enough to accommodate sufficient parking for 13 apartments* and their visitors
3. This development would cause more congestion to an area that is already problematic in rush hour times.
4. The site is in a peaceful area with family houses nearby; a 13 bed apartment* would not suit the profile of the area
5. Family accommodation is needed in
6. 13 apartments will not complement the surrounding amenities, such as a school, as these apartments will not be suitable for families
7. We wish to preserve houses, particularly those over 100 years old
So far, there are petitions at:
Hugalls Chemists, Sale Moor
Petrol station, Sale Moor
PLEASE could you go to one of these shops and sign the petition?
There are also leaflets outlining how to object to the proposals are in the Sandwich Box, Café Moorish and Claire Haggerty Optometrist.
Thanks in advance
THS Campaign Team
* PLEASE NOTE:
Please note, it is in fact a block of 14 single and two bed apartments with 7 car parking spaces plus two disabled spaces. The developer lists it as 13 apartments (plus one) and 9 parking spaces, presumably to make it look less daunting.

We are more than happy to report that finally the Sale Hotel has gained listed status. Thanks again for all your support. Please read the article on the following link:

* No justification to demolish a perfectly good family home in favour of flats.
* Allowing flats here will encourage other developers to demolish houses of character in the area for similar purposes
* The proposed structure with 14 apartments on this plot is too large and would be over dominant from every angle.
* Surrounding properties would be significantly overlooked.
* Safety is a key issue - this would be opposite Moorlands Junior School, on a busy crossroads. This will seriously affect the safety of children going to and from school.
* Moving the access to the property from Broad Road to Temple Road has only moved the problem. The entrance would be opposite the School and at peak times will cause significant problems.
* The entrance would run adjacent to a family home which would cause noise and disturbance previously not experienced.
* Parking allocation is insufficient – 7 + 2 disabled spaces for 14 apartments are not enough.
* These types of development are slowly eroding the character of Broad Road.
We have the support of our local Labour Councilors who have already written to object and are keen to establish the views of the Sale Moor Ward Councilors, as many of their residents have children who use this crossing.
