Morris Fen Planning Committee meeting moved to 17th June

Those of you who have been helping us fight this naive council’s plans to convert prime Agricultural land into an Industrial site will not be surprised by this decision.

This time it appears as if they need a legal advisor to oversee the proceedings now.  Is this the same legal advisor who threatens and gags members of the public when engaging in the democratic process.

It is also interesting that the news to move the meeting has been decided minutes before the PCC break up for Easter.  A good day for burying more embarrassing news.

As we take a short break for Easter as well we will leave you with the children’s tale “The Emperor with no clothes”

I wonder if anyone is going to brave enough to tell our Emperor that the expensive designs he has paid for are …

Date of first planning committee suggested: Tuesday 7th May 2013 at 5pm.

More information to come – We would ask as many of you as possible to save the date and tell the council that we do not want this built on Grade 1 and 2 land.

Reminders – Next NLPG meeting 5th March – Thorney Golf Course 7pm start; Full Council 6th March at Council Chambers

We are still having our NPLG meeting on 5th March to update everyone about the delay to planning and what we have been doing recently.

We would also like people to come to Full Council on the 6th as it is the meeting where the budget is going to be discussed.  Clearly the energy park is the Cabinet’s secret weapon which will solve all of their financial problems.  Please attend to see if you agree.

Toneham Wind Farm – Important meeting 8th April at Thorney Parish Council (7pm)

West Coast Energy have just agreed to present to the Parish Council Monday 8th April at 7pm.   They will be using this opportunity to “reassure” local people.

Please attend to tell West Coast Energy that we will not:

Have our homes devalued, our health destroyed by unbearable sound and light pollution or our countryside devastated and local species slaughtered just so they can make a few million.

Virtually every other council across the country says no to WIND.  They respect the wishes of their citizens.

West Coast Energy are only here because they know Peterborough City Council are pro-wind.  Peterborough City Council appear not to care about the people of Thorney.  They are already planning to destroy Morris Fen with giant solar panels, an electric sub-station and another plan to further destroy Thorney with their own wind turbines in 2014.  If Peterborough City Council do not stop Toneham Wind Farm our historic village will be totally surrounded by Industrial sites which will destroy our countryside and community.  There is a chance that Thorney will become a ghost town.

Please attend this meeting and tell them that we will not let their greed destroy our community.
