Council officers are investigating after a large amount of rubbish was tipped in a wooded area in Peel Hall.

An officer was called to the scene near St Elizabeth’s Primary School on February 28th to investigate an environmental crime at Gorse Covert.

And this week the officer opened 30 bags of rubbish. The officer said further investigations would be carried out to help identify the culprits after a letter was found with a nearby address.

John Paul Coe and the chairman of the local allotments group will be joining forces with Manchester City Council for a clean up operation this month.

Gorse Covert was the winner of a public vote in 2016 with the City of Trees team proposing to work with the local community to clean up the woodland, plant native wildflowers, install bird and bat boxes and introduce new plants attracting more wildlife.

This fly-tipping incident is on of three in the first few days of March which have include garden furniture dumped in Grindleton Avenue and bags left on Brownley Road

Just recently, I made a return visit to my birthplace but I was in for a shock ~ at the rear of my childhood home, there are about 10 concrete garages. The local shop- keepers once used them for storage but now they are in a sorry state. This is where we used to play as kids. Continue reading “YOUR VIEW: Not in my back yard”
