Garston waste plans - BAD NEWS UPDATE

Today I heard the awful news that Jack Allen Holdings (the people who wanted to put the waste plant at Garston Dock right next to the Cressington Heath development and other housing), are launching an appeal.

The City Council planning committee said no to their planning application earlier this year. The law however means that applicants can launch an appeal against a decision, and it looks like they are doing just that. Appeals are not heard by the Council but are considered by the Planning Inspectorate. In fact the City Council will now need to spend time and money defending its case (the case that this scheme does not belong where the developers want to put it)

Details are very sketchy at the moment and I will blog again when I have more.

Suffice it to say that this organisation (JA) clearly cares nothing about Garston or the views of local people.
