A plan to build hundreds of new homes in a Salford neighbourhood could pile pressure on local services, a councillor has said.

Peel Land has submitted an updated planning application to Salford council for 295 new homes on land east of Boothstown, off Leigh Road, next to RHS Bridgewater.

It's based on green belt land released under Greater Manchester's Places for Everyone scheme - a plan to build more homes around the region which has been adopted by all town halls apart from Stockport.

"It's a problem all over the country.
