Public inquiry; emails &letters.

NEXT week a crucial Public Inquiry takes place in Garston.

If the result goes the wrong way, the regeneration of our area could be stopped in its tracks.

Some years ago now a private company, Jack Allen Holdings, announced it wanted to put a waste processing plant in Garston right next to a housing development and off a very busy road.

We were outraged as was the community. The first plan was withdrawn in the face of local opposition.

Jack Allen then put in a second plan. We went to the city council planning committee to speak against it, as did many of our neighbours. The committee said no. The committee and officers believed that the regeneration of Garston would be stopped in its tracks if the scheme were to get the go ahead.

Sadly the law allowed Jack Allen another try with an appeal.

It has done so and that means a Public Inquiry starting on Tuesday at Garston Urban Village Hall on Banks Road (10am).

As councillors for Cressington we will be there and are asking to speak against the scheme. We know that other residents are planning to attend too.

We are appealing to local people to come to the Village Hall on Tuesday, or throughout the next four days, and show their feelings. We are determined to do everything we can to oppose this. Cllrs Paula Keaveney, Peter Millea and Richard Oglethorpe, Liberal Democrat Councillors - Cressington ward
