The official text of the petition:
“We call upon Manchester City Council to hold a full public consultation on how to spend the additional Airport Dividend of £14.5 million. People who live, work and study in the city of Manchester must be able to say what their priorities are. While we want a cleaner and greener city, techno-fluff like “smarter bins” is an insult to people whose libraries and daycare centres are facing closure or reduction in services. £14.5 million is a huge sum of money that would enable, for example, community improvement wards of £30,000 pounds for all 32 wards in Manchester for 15 years.”

It’s really important that you only sign the petition
a) if you are eligible – you live, work or study in Manchester (not Greater Manchester – Oldham, Rochdale etc – that doesn’t count.)
b) ONCE (either online or paper).
“Duplicate signatures” detract from the credibility of the petition!
And please note, you do NOT have to think that “community improvement awards of £30,000 pounds for all 32 wards for 15 years” is a good idea in order to sign the petition! We ONLY put it in to give a sense of the scale.
