UPDATE 29/05/2011: The Council planning panel will be meeting in the morning of the 2nd June. We will be demonstrating outside the main entrance of the civic centre from 8:30am. After this we will be heading into the Salford Suite, where the meeting will take place.
We urge everyone to make best efforts to attend both the demo and the meeting. To attend the meeting, please let the Council know that you intend to do this.
Fill in the following form to register:
Application Numbers: 10/59092/OUTEIA & 10/59093/FULEIA
Alternatively, you can call this number to register:
0161 793 2602
We will be there to state our grounds for opposition. We appreciate any and all support you can give. See you there on Thursday.
We have fantastic news. The Council has decided that due to massive opposition to this application, it is necessary to reschedule the panel meeting where the final decision will be made. We have learned that the format of the meeting will be changed, so that all those who want to speak at the meeting will be given an opportunity to do so.
You may remember that we recently complained that Sly Properties were given the opportunity to do a full presentation to the planning panel without any objectors present. As a result we launched a barrage of calls, emails and letters to the council requesting that we also be given an opportunity to present our side of this argument in full. This request was denied.
In what can only be seen as an about-turn re-assessment of the situation, the date of the planning meeting has been moved to the 2nd of June and will occur in revised format. It is yet to be confirmed, but the meeting may now be held for the full day and objectors will be given significantly more scope to state their case.
Well done to everyone who’s been calling, emailing and posting letters. Our opposition to the incinerator remains absolute. We do not want it, do not need it and will not take it.
NOTES ON DEMOS: SATURDAY’S RALLY IS STILL GOING AHEAD. PLEASE CONTINUE TO SUPPORT OUR EFFORTS WITH YOUR ATTENDANCE.
THE CIVIC CENTRE DEMO HAS NOW BEEN TENTATIVELY RESCHEDULED TO JUNE 2nd (We appreciate that people may have already booked time off work for this and will have to change dates again, but despite the Council’s seemingly unorganised operations, we really need your support, stick with us. We will only stop this together).
