Petition sheet – blank for you to download

The crucial things are these – we need the Manchester address that entitles the person to sign the petition’ to be the one that they write down –

“The petition scheme requires that petition signatories need to live, work or study in Manchester. If someone lives in Stockport but works in Manchester for example, they should put their work address or their signature will be disqualified.”

If you have a completed sheet that you want to get back to us, please email askthepeopleofmanchester@gmail.com

The deadline is Friday 15th November!

    Thank you for your letter via WordPress. I am surprised at the sense of prority of our councillors. Before I sign the form I reproduce below the full version of my letter to the Viewpoints. Perhaps you could say if we are in the same wavelength.
    Dear Viewpoints,

    I read with interest Jennifer Williams’ article on Town Hall’s plea for suggestions to spend £15m windfall to make Manchester the UK’s “cleanest, greenest city” (from Cllr. Pat Karney) [10th September, Page 4]. My this open letter is through your widely circulated Manchester paper, for the dear Cllr. Karney

    The idea of replacing the city centre bins with the ‘hi-tech smart bins’, like the so called ‘Smart’ phones, may be very attractive and youth-speak but is this the cure for the malaise that has in the Mancunians’ psyche by long ignoring needs of the locals who have given up any hope of improvements? Has it occurred to the Council that some bright coloured street bins and flower baskets are not deep enough to cure this malaise? Manchester, especially north and east fringe of the city centre where the Centre is planned to expand, is gradually looking like high-rise slums. People who live in these areas would need more than a few colourful bins and mangy flower baskets to have green consciousness. They need to live in a green environment to have respect for these superficial gestures. These two areas where there are still some open spaces could be converted to neighbourhood leafy squares and assigned to the local communities who would be thrilled to maintain it and bear the ‘green’ credentials for Manchester. Some of these open spaces (in Ancoats) are in danger of being sold off to build more buildings of dubious characters. If the Councillor wants to make Manchester ‘Green’ halt this madness and bring the local communities to the mission of greening Manchester. If Manchester wants to compete with London, be like Kensington and Chelsea which is strewn with little neighbourhood squares, then Manchester could shed its grimy Northern reputation.

    • Personally, I find that a compelling vision, and there’s people I am going to put you in touch with so that you can work together towards it!!

      Good to “meet” you – have seen your letters in the MEN!

      Best wishes

      Marc Hudson
