I have long been interested in seeing more eco homes, including for those like me who want to downsize.
When the consultation came along I thought if Ryebank Fields was going to be sold for housing this could be a good site for such homes, with varying sizes and types of low or zero carbon housing, including a high proportion of affordable homes, with no or low car usage, plenty of green space, enhancing biodiversity and develop a real community.
I am a lifelong community activist. I have lived in the area for 40 years and want the best for Chorlton and other areas. I would like the chance to be involved in an innovative, imaginative and exciting development, as this could be. It could enhance the Chorlton Community and be a beacon for such developments elsewhere.
Setting up the Community Land Trust has also given us the chance to work on other projects that could be of benefit to the community.
