For those residents wondering where all the wagons are coming from in the Moor Lane area, the attached pictures may help to explain. Again, vast quantities of peat are being removed from the peat yard, each movement releasing huge quantities of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. At least unlike last year, when thousands of tonnes were trucked to Somerset where it was used commercially, this time it is being spread on land owned by Lindow Lawn Turf, still releasing CO2. It makes you wonder where the peat will come from to restore the Moss.
Requests to CEC as to what conditions are in force on the site are met with vague answers that's only serve to confuse. The new conditions for the housing can't be in force as before any restoration/building takes place there must be a water vole report but we have been assured this hasn't been done.
If the 2003 conditions are being used (though these have been ignored since day one), then condition 30 states 'unless otherwise agreed in writing by the MPA no materials shall be imported onto the site for processing, storage or treatment other than for approved restoration purposes'.
In the meantime, keep breathing in the emissions, CEC must think it's good for us. (Meanwhile Newgate Kennels and The White House continue to subside).
