Council Leader requests that toilet roll factory plans are binned
Council leader Shaun Davies said: “It is clear that the outline application being made in respect ofthe site has caused considerable concern among residents and councillors.
“Having spoken with Cllrs Bill Tomlinson, Karen Tomlinson and Karen Blundell and my own Cabinet at length about their concerns, I have asked Council officers to suggest to the Government agency to withdraw this application.
“It is of course important to recognise, as many do including local councillors, that this land is designated for employment use and has been for over 40 years – but any development that may come forward in future must of course be appropriate and subject to a specific planning application and to consultation.”
Campaigner GT Everson commented ‘…thank you to everyone for the support, community spirit and solidarity that has been shown throughout this. So many people have helped in so many ways…’
