Vernon Kay – Tweeting with RAGE

Vernon Kay is encouraging people, via Twitter, to join the RAGE protest outside Montcliffe Quarry, on Thursday 24 November 2011.

One of the main concerns of the objectors will be the record number of HGVs which will be put on the roads around Horwich – with nothing stopping every single one going through the town centre of Horwich.

Other concerns include the fact that plans exist to turn the quarry into a one million tonne per year recycling centre.

The application is part of a large number of applications, at three contiguous sites, in rapid succession. So far four applications for the quarries have been considered –

  • One went to appeal – but was withdrawn by Armstrongs after the planning inspector asked for additional information.
  • Two have been approved, but subsequently quashed in the Judicial Review Process
  • One is currently in the Judicial Review Process and will be considered 14, and 15 December 2011.

The extension for Montcliffe will be considered Thursday 24 November, at 1pm, atBolton Town Hall

Thanks Vernon
