It is important to make your voice known to them and not the site operators.
Some people may remember the dire situation concerning large volumes of foundry sand being moved about on what is now known as “the mound” adjacent to Rattlechain lagoon and McDonald Close in the Temple Way area throughout the 1990’s. Many of those living there took the lull in operations as the chance to get out.
40 lorry loads -7 days a week of sand are stated to be being delivered to Rattlechain lagoon in order to weigh down the geo-textile membrane. This exceeds any previous operations at this site. They are conditioning you to what will follow in the future, should this mound ever be shifted-
THIS IS NOT ABOUT PROTECTING BIRDS- IT IS ABOUT PROTECTING THEM- AND IT ALWAYS HAS BEEN.
PROTECT YOURSELF- AND ALWAYS BEWARE OF GREEKS BEARING GIFTS!
