Leech calls for “Friends of Chorlton Baths” group to stop Council selling off Chorlton Baths to developers

Chorlton MP John Leech has urged Chorlton residents and community groups to support his plans to stop the Council selling off the Chorlton Baths site to developers.

He is co-ordinating a Community Right to Bid Application, but rules state he cannot submit the bid as an MP. Bids need to be supported by 21 local residents, or a local Community Group.

John said today, “I have written to over 500 people who have signed our petition opposing the sell-off, asking them to support the bid. I also want them to work with me to set up a “Friends of Chorlton Baths” group who could submit this application and eventually take over running the building.”

John added: “I have also spoken to officers of Chorlton Civic Society, and they are supportive of the plans. The response so far has been good.”
