A Community Manifesto For Levenshulme

Levenshulme Community Association is supporting a new project to develop a Community Manifesto for Levenshulme.

The first meeting took place on 27 September and identified a wide range of issues that people wanted addressed. We will hold monthly meetings leading up to publishing our Community Manifesto in Spring 2018.

The first meeting identified key priorities and areas to be addressed. This is a starting point, not a definitive list:

1. Community cohesion

2. How to communicate more effectively with different groups / communities

3. Public transport

4. Traffic levels and cycling provision

5. Personal safety, crime and policing

6. Antisocial behaviour

7. Older people’s issues

8. Youth provision and support

9. Landlords – private and commercial

10. A6 corridor – development, shopping offer, visual appeal, high rents, number of takeaways

11. Quality of housing

12. Recognition of the character and heritage of the area, particularly the architecture – promotion of the Conservation Area

13. Planning issues and enforcement

14. Clean air

15. Generating clean energy / local energy supplies

16. Green spaces – quality, support and use

17. Street trees

18. Playgrounds

19. Redevelopment of Old Baths

20. Public facilities including new use for Old Library

21. Employment opportunities

22. Business development and support

The next meeting will take place at 7.30pm in the Community Room at Levenshulme Methodist Church on Wednesday 25 October.
