Government allows development to go ahead at danger tip

CHEADLE MP Mark Hunter has slammed a decision by the government planners to allow a multi-million pound housing development on a former �danger� tip that spans areas in Bramhall and Adswood.
The decision by Ruth Kelly the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, has overturned years of opposition by residents and local politicians worried about the contents of the Adswood Tip, traffic issues and over-development.
It will enable developers Persimmon Homes to build 163 apartments which include 139 two-bedroomed flats and 24 sheltered units on the land at Midland Road and Geneva Road.
