Call for Active Neighbourhood Consultation to be extended

Levenshulme Community Association and Levenshulme Traders Association have jointly called for the current Active Neighbourhood consultation to be extended. There are multiple problems with the way the consultation is being run. We believe these problems must be corrected and then the consultation should be extended to allow proper community engagement.

The letter and concerns are reproduced below and have been sent on 11 January 2022 to: Levenshulme councillors (Zahid Hussain, Dzidra Noor and Basat Sheikh); Burnage councillors (Azra Ali, Ben Clay and Bev Craig who is also Manchester City Council Leader); Manchester City Council Executive member Tracey Rawlins; Andy Burnham (Greater Manchester Mayor); and local MPs Afzal Khan and Jeff Smith. Copied to the Levenshulme and Burnage Active Neighbourhood Project Team.

Destination: Bee Network TfGM Survey

Today is the last day of the Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) survey on the future development of the Bee Network concept.

TfGM say:

“By getting involved in the Destination: Bee Network Conversation, you can help bring the vision to life based on what’s most important to you. Topics include what you’d expect the Bee Network values and standards to be, how safe you feel travelling on the network, the GM bus of the future, and whether you’d like to see dogs and bikes on trams.

There are several ways to have your say. You can complete the Bee Network Conversation online survey, which will be open until 12 November. If you have any questions or need support to complete the survey form, please email: engagement@tfgm.com
