A plea for help

Today I made two discoveries. Firstly I stumbled upon Sal Brown’s Excellent Adventures blog. This led to the second discovery. A very surprising discovery, because not only did I know nothing about this (and I do read the local paper, watch the local news and pick up local news feeds), but neither did my Mother, who lives very near to this area. Worrying!

With Sal’s permission, I’ve reproduced her post below.



Need your help again

In November last year, I posted about a company who wanted to quarry in a sensitive and beautiful part of the Peak District of Derbyshire. We suspected Glebe Mines would put in another application, and indeed they have. Here’s the original post.

If you objected last time, please write in again; if you meant to object last time but didn’t quite get around to it, please object now. Write to:

Ms S Smith, Senior Minerals Planner, Peak District National Park Authority, Aldern House, Baslow Road, Bakewell, Derbyshire, DE45 1AE

quoting Tearsall Quarry – Fluorspar Extraction Application NP/DDD/0208/0104

or email planning.service@peakdistrict.gov.uk

The original objections still stand, and if you’d like a letter template to send to the Peak Park, or if you’d like more information, please contact me via comments or email.

The Planning Committee meets in 9 days (note from TLC, this was originally posted on Tues Feb 26th – only a few days left now!), so please, get those objections in if you don’t want this:

to turn into something like this:

If, like me, you are unhappy about this proposal, please do send an objection quickly.
