Salford Labour U-turn on Green Space

Salford Conservatives have slammed the ruling Labour party after a U-turn over green space.

The Labour controlled council approved only a partial Local Plan, which left out precious green space previously earmarked for protection.

It is understood the areas were omitted, leaving them vulnerable to development, following objections from a large local land owner and developers.
