  1. Plans to revamp the children’s play area at a popular Cadishead park will start in summer, Salford City Council has announced. The council has been working with the Friends of Lordy Park for several months in drawing up the plans to make the site easier for wheelchair users and people with pushchairs. It currently does not meet modern access standards. Councillor David Lancaster, lead member for environment and community safety, said: Craig Havern, chair of Friends of Lordy Park, said: Final details on the funding are still pending, as grants and other funding options are being finalised.

  2. Swinton Civic Centre was lit up in green to mark this years World Wildlife Day this evening. Earlier today Salford's Wild Life Champion, Councillor Lewis Nelson, made a plea to the public to get more involved in helping our local flora and fauna flourish in the City. Meanwhile an army of some of Salford's finest photographers got out into nature alongside their amateur counterparts to snap some glorious photos from within the City. Glen Bradbury took a trip to Salford's new Wetlands in Kersal and managed to take these snaps of some of the feathered visitors to the city, huddled together. We are told by Salford Ranger Team that they have counted 16 Herons on the wetlands which is a new record for the site and clearly shows it has quickly become a thriving ecological habitat. Meanwhile, Tom Nolan managed to snap these truly magnificent photos whilst on his travels around Salford Crescent. Despite the close proximity to Manchester and a more urban environment, the wildlife is still very much a feature in our city. The detailing on the Kestrel's feathers is outstanding. Steve Purcell caught this cheeky little ball of fur snacking on an earth worm on his travels around Peel Green in Eccles. Salford's squirrel population is ever present and their acrobatic escapades up in the tree canopies are a sight to behold. There are lots more photos to be found on our new 'Salford Nature' Facebook group which covers all aspects of nature in Salford, from its wildlife to its stunning scenery, it's parks to its urban back garden oasis and allotments. The Wildlife is very much present in Salford and in the coming months we aim to help showcase our stunning local beauty spots and the plants and animals which call them home. If this past year has taught us anything it is the importance of protecting what we have for future generations to behold and enjoy. Get out there and explore what Salford has to offer.

  3. Salford's Mayor (Paul Dennett) and wildlife champion (Councillor Lewis Nelson) have taken part in urgent meeting with bosses from the RHS Bridgewater this morning after the society caused outrage after revealing it had culled nine roe deer at its site on Leigh Road, which they say had become trapped between fences. The Mayor has now confirmed that there are no active plans in progress to cull any further roe deer at the site, but critics have said there should be no plans at all, active or inactive. Additionally the RHS has pledged to enter into a new community engagement process with the local community committee and local councillors on decisions pertaining to the remaining herd. All future decisions will now have to be green lit by the community committee before being allowed to commence. The RHS had culled what is now known to have been nine roe deer after they became trapped between fences, in order to stop them damaging shrubs, plants and trees at the 156 acre site which so far has cost in the region of £44m with an investment by the local council of £19m. To say this has caused a huge backlash is an understatement as Salford has not seen such a display of anger since the days when iGas had planned to bring hydraulic gas fracturing (Fracking) to Barton Moss. Countless numbers of people have been taking to social media to condemn the actions with many pledging to boycott the gardens before they even open in May 2021. The RHS has now said that tranquilising was considered not to be an option as it can have adverse effects on the deer but some on social media have been quick to point out that being shot dead through the head was a far worse effect for them and one for which they had no chance of recovery from. Netting was also said to have not been possible due to the coronavirus regulations and the amount of people that would be required to carry out such an operation, although commenters on social media were quick to point out that even during the height of the pandemic, construction and planting was still taking place on the site. We have spoken privately with one wildlife campaign group this morning which has told us that the response by the RHS is not good enough and does not go far enough to ensure the future safety of the herd, they are currently in talks with other groups and pledging to take action when the gardens open to the public in May 2021, with protests outside the site planned. A joint statement from both Mayor Dennett and Wildlife Champion Councillor Nelson reads as follows: Meanwhile a petition set up by local resident Sam Sykes continues to grow, with now almost 7,000 people signing, the anger does not seem to have been stemmed by this latest announcement.

  4. United Utilities proposals to place a storm tank on an area of land at the Three Sisters nature reserve have been turned down by a city planning panel yesterday (15th October). Representatives from the Ellesmere Park Residents Association made an impassioned plea to save the beloved site of biological importance and diversity, stating the devastating impact the work would have on local wildlife and fauna. They were backed by local councillors Sharmina August and Mike McCusker alongside Salford and Eccles MP Rebecca Long-Bailey who gave strong arguments in objection to the application. Councillor McCusker motioned to refuse the application which was quickly seconded by newly appointed Salford Wildlife Champion, Lewis Nelson. The voted ended almost unanimously with 9 for refusal and just one abstention. It is hoped that the Utilities company will take this show of support as an indication to seek alternative proposals for the area, However, UU can chose to appeal the decision and even ignore it completely due to having a national mandate for large infrastructure projects. We understand that the Council is seeking a tree protection order as a safeguard.
  5. Cadishead Councillor Lewis Nelson has been appointed as Salford's first Wildlife Champion. In this role, Councillor Nelson will be responsible for championing wildlife across city and working with partners and residents to improve green spaces for wildlife. He will also take responsibility for creating a Salford Wildlife Forum, similar to that of the Salford Walking and Cycling Forum, that will allow residents to shape the priorities of the city in respect to wildlife. Lewis is one of the youngest councillors in Salford but has been directly involved in helping to protect the the local moss lands and its huge variety of wildlife since an early age. He was a regular face at the Barton Moss anti-fracking camp and has stood against proposals which would see over a thousand new homes built on Chat Moss. Since becoming a local councillor he has remained a keen environmentalist campaigner and has used his voice to champion the need to protect the green lungs of Salford on countless occasions, often putting himself at odds with his fellow councillors in his area. Despite tough opposition Lewis won his seat in Cadishead based purely upon his own merits and the hard work and shear dedication he has put into his local and wider Salford community, he remains committed to working hard to protect the local greenbelt as well as Salford's other greenspaces and its wildlife. This important role for Salford could not have been placed in a more safer and well suited pair of hands. Councillor Lewis Nelson said Pictured is Councillor Nelson visiting Dales Brown in Swinton.
