Yesterday morning there was a gathering on the Meadows for the South Manchester Reporter to take a photo for this week's paper. Loads of local people turned up, and a lot of people are clearly still on "cloud nine" over the result.
A number of people were asking me about a letter they have received from the Labour Party which suggested that the application had been refused and that the developer might appeal. I can't understand why the Labour Party have sent out this letter, because the application was not refused in the end because the club withdrew the application. This means that they cannot appeal the decision. Of course that doesn't stop them from submitted another application at some point in the future.
