The deadline for objections to the Veolia appeal is almost upon us – anything not received by next Wednesday 4 October will be ignored. If you want to object, and I sincerely hope you do, the time to do it is now. And be certain, the objections will make a difference if we want to show the Inspectorate that we care.
Time is running short for our recommended way to object – by ‘snail mail’ letter; and some of you have had problems with objecting via the Inspectorate web site. So here’s a good way to do it…
EMAIL your objection to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be absolutely sure that you say right at the start that you want to OBJECT, or your letter may be put into a heap called ‘Comments’ which could be regarded less seriously.
And be sure also to include all the necessary references. Here they are again…
APPLICATION REF: L/1076/16
APPELLANT’S NAME: VEOLIA ES (UK) LTD
APPEAL REF: APP/Q2500/W/17/3181477
SITE ADDRESS: VEOLIA SITE, LONG LEYS ROAD, LINCOLN LN1 1DS.
Please don’t worry now about the technical details; there are experts aplenty working that route – just tell the Inspector why you believe Long Leys Road is absolutely the wrong place to put a waste processing plant. Talk about the middle of our ‘Urban Village’ residential area; all the heavy traffic with the danger to children and pedestrians on their way to school or the park; the noise, and smell, and disturbing lights at night. We can expect all this if the appeal is allowed to succeed. All this in the area of West Common, the ‘mini nature reserve’ at Hobblers Hole (by Whitton Park).
Please write now or it will be too late.
Many thanks – CHRIS TAYLOR.
