Save the Three Sisters Photo Call


Press Release

26th August 2020


More than 50 residents and local MP Rebecca Long Bailey turned out in the pouring rain today to pledge their support for the ‘Save Three Sisters’ campaign under threat from United Utilities.

Plans are well underway by United Utilities to commence work on sewer improvements which will ruin a significant part of a Local Nature Reserve in Ellesmere Park, Salford with the construction of a 9m storm tank, temporary car park and storage facilities destroying over 17 mature trees and disrupting local wildlife.

Work on site, scheduled to start next month by United Utilities, has been strongly opposed by most of the residents in Ellesmere Park and the surrounding areas, that the planning meeting has now been put back until 12th October.

Residents sang in unison to “Save our Three Sisters” this morning pledging to stop the works taking place on the Three sisters Nature Reserve.

Local resident and chair of the Ellesmere Park Residents Association (EPRA) Clare Ward  said, “We are not against the need to mitigate the sewer flooding which affects a small number of Ellesmere Park homes whose cellars are prone to the occasional sewer flooding. It is the location of both the storm tank and the construction of a temporary car park and storage area that concerns us particularly when there are other alternative locations. To destroy mature trees for the sake of short term gain seems completely unreasonable. The Three Sisters is an official defined  Site of Biological Interest  (SBI) in Eccles with a Roman road running through the site.”

Greater Manchester Parks Survey

A project called IGNITION brings together 12 partners from across Greater Manchester who aim to create a greener, healthier and more climate resilient future for us all. As part of this programme we are researching innovative ideas about how we can uplift our public parks and greenspaces.

Across Greater Manchester residents have access to over 450 public parks and greenspaces which we believe should be free and accessible for all Greater Manchester citizens to help keep us happy and healthy and to protect our natural environment.

If you live in Greater Manchester we would like you to share your thoughts with us by filling in this short survey to help us understand how you use your public parks and greenspaces and why they are important to you.    The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete.

We’d be very grateful if you could circulate the survey throughout your organisations and networks. This will help us get the views of as many Greater Manchester residents as possible.  

If you require further information please do not hesitate to contact Claire Drury at

Monton Consultation

Salford City Council have been working for some time on a scheme to improve the safety of the roads around Monton for both pedestrians and cyclists. The current need for “social distancing” and the demand by Central Government that local Councils improve provision for so-called healthy travel has provided an extra stimulus to the project.

The Council has just published a consultation exercise at:

There is an interactive map where you can comment on their proposals and make your own. We understand that funding has already been secured for this project; it’s not a pipe dream! If you want your say, log on today.

The consultation closes on 12th August.
