I am pleased to inform you that the above planning application has been withdrawn by Peel and Marshalls.
Following the 78 page objection document and other supplementary documents that our protest group drafted, the Planning Officers agreed that additional information and surveys were needed to to respond to concerns that had been raised in connection with the plant and its operation.
It is possible that a fresh application will be submitted in the near future by Peel and Marshalls. If they do, it will undergo the same planning process and consultation as last time.
I am hoping however that Peel and Tamar will have a rethink after the wave of protest about this application. In the end, over 1,000 residents have objected.
Tamar are developing 40 other sites, so it is hoped that they will concentrate on those instead of pursuing this at Fletcher Bank.
May I finally thank everyone that has taken the time to object; and especially everyone involved in our residents group – Ramsbottom Against the Waste Site – who have worked tirelessly on opposing this dreadful planning application. They do not wish to be named publicly, but they know who they are!
