All Allerdale and Copeland Councillors have been invited by government to be wooed into a geological dump.
Copeland have not taken up the offer, presumably this is because (the handful of councillors on the Executive) do not need any more woo pitching, they are already dewy eyed and ready to be shafted?
Allerdale are being wooed on Monday 11 Nov at the Wave in Maryport.
Lets get there and show that Cumbria is not a willing community and that NO means NO!
Meet from 11 ish outside the Wave at Maryport, the meeting starts at 1.30pm (Anyone wanting to go in and witness the sorry shebang can register below – we are all “stakeholders” in this!)
Email to all Allerdale Councillors from DECC…
Further to my e-mail and invitation below. I am e-mailing to finalise details of the event at the Wave Centre, Maryport.
Thank you to those Councillors that have responded to the invitation. There are still a few Councillors who have yet to respond as to whether they will be attending or not and I just ask that you please let me know let me know ASAP if you can attend or not.
Please note : The event will now start with tea and coffee on arrival at 1.30 and start promptly at 2pm, and close at 4.30 at the latest.
If you are not able to attend the event on the 11th November, or would like to the opportunity to further engage, DECC are hosting an event for Local Authorities in Cumbria, the day after, on the 12th November in Penrith. If you wish to attend this event you need to register by e-mailing : firstname.lastname@example.org The events are likely to last all day and, once you have registered further details of timings and the venue will be forwarded nearer the time. Details of this event, and a National Stakeholder Event in London on the 14thNovember are included in the attached letter.
I have reattached the DECC consultation document to enable you to familiarise yourself with the proposals from DECC and hard copies of the consultation document will be available on the day.
In the meantime please contact me if you would like to talk through anything in connection with the event, or the Government’s proposals for a GDF.
Apologies from Radiation Free Lakeland, key South Lakes members WON’T be able to get to this and protest but we hope that others WILL. Even one banner makes the message resonate that No means NO!
