Large freight hubs, warehousing and especially rail freight interchanges, in the hands of private investors, are being proposed all around the country – without any national strategy or concern for their siting or the consequences.
Very often, challenging the proposal is left with those affected. So (unless it is an ideal brownfield location), forming a local opposition group is a vital step. The term NIMBY may be wheeled out by the proposers and those who may benefit from these proposals. But in this area we already have an extremely busy motorway, two extremely busy strategic trunk roads, an industrial estate (with explosion zone), a childrens detention centre (expensive failure) – now a police station, a council depot, a busy railway line, a waste incinerator, two giant wind turbines – well over & above the normal trappings of a community – so such criticisms can be flicked aside. The area is prime agricultural land (class 2 & 3) and importantly we are within the Green Belt.
If you value the countryside, the environment, your health, the green belt principle, farming, the local roads & villages and your property, then join us to fight this monstrosity. If you would like to be involved more actively, please drop us an email – we’d love to hear from you.
We want as many people as possible to become an Interested Party to help us fight WMI.
This ensures you will receive formal notification during the Examination process and gives you important participation rights.
The deadline is 29th October 2018!
Snub The Hub are a team of local residents, we do not have the financial backing to match the wealthy people behind WMI.
Any donations, large or small, will be vital in helping our fight.
