Community Secretary’s Decision Challenged by Trafford Council
Tonight, over 200 people packed the Council Chamber at an Extraordinary Meeting of Trafford Council. The meeting was called to discuss a motion to quash the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government’s controversial decision, to grant planning permission for the Davyhulme Incinerator.
Speakers highlighted that Eric Pickles has contradicted his own policies on Localism, by ignoring the views of local people and their elected representatives.
Councillors, from all political persuasions, commended the dedication of the Breathe Clean Air Group over the last 3 years. Trafford Council have now served legal papers to the High Court, launching a Legal Challenge against the Secretary of State’s decision.
Everyone must continue to stand up for our community to improve our borough and not to destroy it. This plant has been rejected by the Local Residents, Local Councillors and MPs from all Political Persuasions, Trafford Council and Salford City Council and must NOT be built.
