Stop the Tip – Save the Void
By Rachel Whalley
Oppose FCC Environmental Planning application to fill Glapwell 3 (known as Smithy Void) with 900,000 tonnes of waste material.
This site is now a unique wildlife habitat containing a rich mosaic of grass and shale. It would be nigh on impossible to replicate what nature has produced here. Leaving aside wildlife, the real threat from this application is to the health and wellbeing of local residents which is very serious.
The nearby M1 motorway is having a speed restriction imposed to try to reduce high pollution levels another 200 wagon (all diesel) movements a day from this site will only add to a that toxic mix.
