Are you prepared to pledge £10 or £20 to secure a cleaner, safer environment for your village?
Why so much money?
What is there in this for you?
You might think that North Yorkshire County Council would want to promote a greener, more sustainable future, and support the concerns of its residents on environmental issues. But four small parish councils, Cridling Stubbs, Heck, Whitley & Womersley in the Selby area have seen firsthand that the opposite is true.
We four councils, along with many local residents, numerous other bodies and our MP Nigel Adams, raised serious, well argued objections to the proposals by EPUKI about the unprecedented long term environmental, health, pollution and safety impacts on the Greenbelt and our communities around the Gale Common proposal. All local concerns, along with our pleas for greener, more sustainable extraction and transport options were rejected by NYCC planning. We believe the process and decision making was fundamentally flawed. Our legal position is established and the process of Judicial Review has begun.
If you live anywhere in North Yorkshire, this may be of concern to you.
Please support the campaign to hold NYCC planning to account.
If successful, we have a chance of a safer, cleaner, quieter North Yorkshire. With a council that acknowledges its environmental obligations to its communities. Greenbelt protection. Cleaner air. Safer roads. Less noise pollution. A LOT less HGV traffic from Gale Common through Whitley....
Fail, and NYCC will, quite possibly, continue to pass 100% mineral planning applications IN FAVOUR OF business interests and AGAINST the well-being of Yorkshire communities and residents, now and for decades to come.
