WHY are we being held to ransom by Tata? Build 1,200 new homes in an already overcrowded, poor road access area, or they will just leave the existing eyesore sight to rot?

Profits are always at the front for these big multi-million-pound companies.

Wouldn’t it be nice for once if, after many years of the Winnington site being a blot on our landscape, they decided to help the environment by clearing the site and creating a huge woodland/ garden area with a business like Go Ape, kids play areas, outdoor fitness space.

Stratford in East London have made such a great example of this with their Victoria Park. I’m not even going to mention access over the river with Barnton Bridge!
