4R Using Lockdown Tactic

Absolutely brilliant letter from our MP to 4R

Dear Mr Whyatt,

I am frankly disgusted that you are seeking to use a virus that is likely to kill thousands to sneak this application in. This is at a time when you know the overwhelming majority of local people do not want your operation anywhere near them. People are rightly very stressed and anxious at this time and I am appalled that you wish to add to the stress local people are feeling at the moment by bringing back your plans to bring truck loads of shit through our villages. You must also know that people who oppose you are now going to be at a huge disadvantage by not being able to organise their opposition to this due to the new conditions on daily life. It is as if you are seeking to use this pandemic to your own personal advantage.

My message to you on behalf of local people is this. Go away, we do not want you in our area. You should have got that message loud and clear from local people. Go away and find somewhere else for your operation. The community do not want you here.

If you haven’t got that message by now I don’t know when you will.

You should not be pursuing this at this time and I share the outrage of local people that you have picked this time to try to progress this application. It must be one of the lowest actions I have ever experienced in 20 years in public life.

Andrew Percy

This group has been set up to ensure everyone is aware of the potential threat of a proposed waste hub in Swinefleet, Crowle, Eastoft & surrounding villages at the Old Peatworks .

An entity called 4R propose to transport in and process human sewage, creating immense carbon footprint given it is coming from hundreds of miles.

There is no local demand for this highly controversial, toxic & failed waste produce.

Planning has been declined and 4R have lost an appeal on very narrow grounds, hence we must remain vigilant.

Proposal to increase traffic In Crowle and Eastoft

4R APPEAL

The following is from the Keep Me Rural facebook page.

As you will note from prior posts, our nemesis 4r; have appealed the Planning decline, see attached.

As also noted by such as Vin, there is nothing really new in here other than they appear to propose to move more trucks up through Crowle & Eastoft, thinking that will dampen opposition.

It won’t.

They also note that ERYC Planning committee hearing was chaotic & biased.

They still haven’t explained who will pay £3mn to fix up Readingate, as opposed to the paltry £5k they are offering;

They claim they are an experienced, respected operator (apart from when they got convicted in Carlisle!);

They claim they are/have worked with the local community and want to be good neighbours (bit untrue that);

They still think this harebrained Traffic Management Plan cooked up by ER will work;

Hopefully AP can have this called up again by Minister, thus taking decision out of local hands. We don’t think we get any inputs but are carefully studying.

Might be time before the next Planning hearing to organise a noisy, but legal demo in the three villages, get Look North out.

Don’t be disheartened, this lot are chancers and not that good
