It lies south of the River Merseyapproximately 10 miles 16 km south-west of Manchesterand occupies an area of about 1, acres ha. The depth of peat varies between 17 and 20 feet 5. Originally an unused area of grouse moorlandthe moss was reclaimed in the latter half of the 19th century for farming and the disposal of Manchester's waste.

Well, it is interesting, because the plans for New Carrington will take away some inherently sustainable aspects of the area and replace them with some fundamentally unsustainable characteristics.
The document proposes that sustainable development becomes a central guiding principle of the United Nations, Governments, private institutions, organisations and enterprises. Effectively, this means that plans should not be approved if they are likely to prevent future generations from meeting their needs.
Looking at some very basic examples, their ability to breathe clean air, access healthy, food sources with a low carbon footprint, and have clean water to drink. So, at a very high level, it is fair to say that we should not be building on a peat moss, which has the potential to be restored to sequester carbon more effectively, nor should we be building on Grade 2 agricultural land, which future generations may need to grow their food, nor should we be building on wetland which has the ability to reduce flooding and support clean water strategies for the future.
Many commentators, however, only focus on how sustainable the de and development of construction projects are, how sustainably sourced the materials used will be and how attractive the new neighbourhood will become. The section on Sustainability 4. Trafford suggests that delivery of the masterplan will result in sustainable transport, sustainable communities, sustainable society, sustainable economy, sustainable drainage and sustainable movements. Yet, there is no mention of what will be lost to future generations. In addition, the language used in the masterplan document does not bode well for future sustainability.
Should plans be approved on that basis? Trafford acknowledges that the New Carrington allocation area is not a sustainable location today. We will moss free phone chat line numbers get hung up in this blog about the fact that these are three separate neighbourhoods, each with their own distinct characteristics. It is important to recognise, however, that NONE of these neighbourhoods will become sustainable if the New Carrington Masterplan, as currently documented, is implemented.
The NPPF has a clear focus on sustainable development. So, what about the area covered by this Masterplan? With 5, new homes,m 2 employment space and 4 new major ro, it is clearly a ificant development. Yet in New Carrington, there is only one commitment and that is to the new road known as the Carrington Relief Road.

There are NO commitments to improve public transport for this, the largest housing development in the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework now known as Places for Everyoneno trams, no trains and no new bus services in fact, another bus service has been withdrawn from the area recently.
For more information on this, see our blog confirming the revelations from our Freedom of Information Act requests here. Peat is an irreplaceable habitat, so a mass extraction event to remove this precious substance cannot be offset by any amount of Biodiversity Net Gain to say nothing of the huge release of carbon into our local atmosphere. One of the many advantages of carbon sequestration via peatland is its own negligible carbon footprint.
There is no requirement for manufacturing of major technology or equipment and no ongoing use of fossil-fuel based power although we do recognise that restoration techniques might involve some initial machine-using groundwork and some installation of plastic dams or pipes.
Peat mosses require relatively low maintenance, perhaps some weed incursion control, but mostly it is over to the forces of nature and time to deliver the benefits. In comparison, most new buildings, however sustainably built, do not have the capability to capture carbon, and those that do cannot compete with the carbon sequestration capabilities of our peat mosses. In fact, such construction will result in a huge increase to carbon emissions locally more heating, more cars on the road, more waste removal. Furthermore, as this article suggests — it takes over 50 tonnes of CO 2 to build the average UK house!
Conversely, in addition to their superior carbon capture capabilities, the restoration of our peatland habitats would bring numerous ecosystem benefitssuch as water quality improvements, flood impact reduction, species recovery, biodiversity gains, wellbeing and climate cooling to name just a few. This wetland environment is a very effective tool which reduces the potential for local flooding take a look at the Carrington Lake of our website for more information and helps to dissipate polluted air, with the large areas of woodland on Carrington Moss also supporting carbon sequestration.
So, here on Carrington Moss, Trafford will be reducing the highly sustainable peatland area which could be restored to capture carbon more effectively and will replace it with housing and employment sites that generate extensive additional carbon emissions and do not have access to sustainable transport options.
The employment area in Carrington, located alongside the Medieval village, has ly had substantial areas of industrial and warehousing development approved over the years. This has resulted in huge volumes of HGV traffic on local ro and other pollutants being released from some of the business premises, causing well known, ificant and unacceptable, health and wellbeing issues for local residents.
Yet, the New Carrington Masterplan currently proposes to build a furthersquare meters of additional industrial and warehousing space so, no digital, no technology, no green or professional occupations, just industrial and warehousing sites.
This lack of diversity, and the resulting very limited career opportunities, means that many local residents will not have the range of employment options that they would need to find work locally. In addition, these new employments sites will bring yet more HGV traffic into the area because alternatives, such as rail freight or shipping given the proximity to the Manchester Ship Canal have not been proposed. The brownfield sites in the allocation area have already been granted planning approval.
The remaining land is either green belt Trafford plan to release hectares or Protected Open Land. The plans will decimate the existing agricultural and equine economy and local supply chains will be severely impacted by the loss of these businesses too. Furthermore, the development will fracture the wildlife corridor, ificantly impacting many red listed birds and endangered wildlife populations.
The active travel routes, that are widely used by large s of local residents, will also be extensively affected. There are, for example, over 1, horses stabled in this area, many of which are ridden across Carrington Moss on a regular basis.
Already popular prior to the pandemic, recreational use of the moss by cyclists and walkers has increased dramatically over recent months. All these healthy, active, outdoor pursuits will be severely constrained by the plans for development. They also invested heavily in a bore hole so they can produce their own water. They would like to do more and regularly review potential grant funding to explore opportunities to:. All of these are very expensive for a small business like theirs to absorb but they are keen to ensure they are as sustainable as possible.
Local farmers also aim to be sustainable and contribute to environmental improvements, such as hedge planting, ditch cleaning, soil quality improvements and they use the least amount of chemicals possible in all their activities. One farmer told us that, whilst they do use local horse and chicken manure, there are times when they need to use chemical fertilisers.
The farmers deploy GPS and weigh cell technologies to ensure precision application, only dispersing what is needed for that crop, in that location, so the environmental impact is reduced as far as possible. One of our local farmers hires out straw and hay bales for events.
They then recycle the used bales for their cattle bedding and then further recycle them as fertiliser on the fields. They are conscious that manufacturers in their supply chain do not always use recyclable packaging, and, whilst this is changing for some products, it is still especially true for the bale wrap. Like the Riding Centre, local farmers would consider increasing sustainability, if funding becomes available. They have also looked at renewable energy, such as solar panels on shed roofs, and improvements to water courses. They have recently taken up opportunities, through grant funding, to renew fencing, cattle handling facilities, more GPS systems, yield monitoring and livestock monitoring via CCTV, all of which improve the sustainability of their businesses.
Government funding schemes are evolving, and many are becoming more environmentally focused. Local farmers are following proposals such as sustainable farming incentives which will be simple actions most farms can achievewhole farm plans, crop management, livestock plans, integrated pest moss free phone chat line numbers, soil plans, etc. Local Nature Recovery initiatives, which Greater Manchester is piloting at a Regional level, would involve creating more woodland, wetland, restoring peat mosses, and supporting natural flood management.
The Carrington and Warburton Mosses would be ideal locations for these proposals. Yet, despite all these Regional and National initiatives, Trafford is willing to sacrifice our essential farmland, this Grade 2 agricultural land, for construction, even though there are urban areas in sustainable locations, that could be used to build homes and employment properties and it seems the amount of brownfield land is likely to increase post-Covid because of the recognised changes to working practices and personal habits that have become apparent over the past year.
We do not agree! The plan to build 5, new homes,m 2 industrial and warehousing employment space, and 4 new major ro on a peat moss and Grade 2 agricultural land is clearly NOT a sustainable strategy. Sustainability is more than just a concept. It is an intrinsic, high value, asset, with features that can and should be measured and monitored. Furthermore, the assessment of the potential sustainability of this location lacks credibility and this masterplan demonstrates a huge lack of knowledge about the area itself! Who will benefit? Trafford residents? We think not!

So perhaps what we should be asking ourselves is — are there other places in Trafford where we can:. Technically speaking, lowland raised bog always remains a peat bog in terms of the geological formation of the substrate the bowl in which the bog was first formed. The physical features of that can never change without massive geological and structural alteration to a whole landscape.
This would have a huge impact on local biodiversity, species survival and the essential work as a flood control mechanism that a peat bog provides!
Summarising the issues!
Our peatlands are critical for preserving global biodiversity, providing safe drinking water, minimising flood risk and helping to address climate change. In many parts of the world, peatlands supply food, fibre and other local products that sustain local economies.
They also preserve important ecological and archaeological information such as pollen records and human artefacts take a look at this nearby find Lindow Man. Some comments have been made recently to suggest that Carrington Moss is no longer a peat moss.
Whilst we recognise that, in common with many wetland areas around the world, there has been considerable decline, in both the area and the quality of our mossland habitat, we think these commentators are incorrect. They may not be aware of the wetlands survey undertaken, inby Hall, Wells and Huckerby available as a publication by Lancaster Imprints, The Wetlands of Greater Manchesterin which the authors concluded that. The chapter on Carrington Moss gives a short precis of the history of the area including the damage to the moss caused by encroaching industrialisation.
It is true that the ecosystem services traditionally provided by wetland habitats have been diminished here on Carrington Moss, but they are certainly not eradicated yet. The frequent sightings of globally threatened speciesof birds, wildlife and plants, when out and about on the moss demonstrates the value and importance of this essential habitat.
We are so lucky that our local green moss free phone chat line numbers is host and home to over 20 red listed birds, for example. This treasure chest of biodiversity brings so many benefits that we should be enhancing, helping these species populations to recover, reintroducing ly abundant flora and fauna and encouraging residents to take advantage of this almost pollution-free environment for their regular exercise regimes.
You may have also seen that Carrington Lake is back and the moss is once again protecting our local area from ificant flooding. This is its job! We are very concerned that the planned developments will bring a huge risk of local flooding because the amount of water currently amassed on the moss will exceed the capacity of the drainage systems, as has happened elsewhere.
Take a look at our video which talks about the impact of flooding on local residents here click on the image below. In addition, whilst there has been ificant damage to our peatmoss in recent times, and that has undoubtedly resulted in CO 2 being released into our local atmosphere, draining or removing the moss for development will result in a further, and much more immense, release of carbon, impacting not only the local environment but the health of local residents.
The peat will also need to be excavated from below all proposed building construction. This will release CO 2 into our atmosphere!
