Unanimous Support of Council Motion Condemning Pickles’ Decision
This is the motion which was unanimously agreed upon at last week’s Extraordinary Trafford Council Meeting by all elected representatives.
[pullquote align=”left|center|right” textalign=”left|center|right” width=”100%”]
RESOLVED: That the Council condemns the decision made by the Conservative Government Secretary of State in overruling this Council’s unanimous decision to refuse planning permission for the development of a Biomass Incineration Plant in Davyhulme.
This Conservative Government decision flies in the face of the thousands of local people who have campaigned against and opposed this Incineration Plant. The decision runs contrary to the definition of ”Localism” and belies any notion of local democracy and the strong wishes of our community.
In light of the above, this Council welcomes the decision of the ruling Conservative Group to put Party allegiances aside, and based on the legal advice they received, and with all party support, instructed the Acting Director of Legal and Democratic Services to appeal through the Courts the Secretary of States ruling, and through this action Trafford Council pledges to continue the fight to overturn this decision
