Create a feasible alternative for the site which:
_Gives the community a usable green space
_Provides connections from the marina to the city by foot and bike
_Provides sporting and recreation space for the existing community
is a reasonable financial argument for the alternate plan
_Provides shelter from noise, traffic, and air pollution
_Incorporates affordable residential space
_Provides space for small businesses
-Cotton Field Park is existing green space and not a part of the new development.
-Proposed green roofs would not be accessible to the public.
-No replacement of the cycle lanes along Great Ancoats Street after the proposed removal.
-Prioritises commercial property over much needed affordable housing.
