Very many thanks indeed to the huge number of you who sent in your views about the proposal to develop the main pit at Roswell. The response has been absolutely amazing, with over 150 letters now posted on the ECDC website. We’ve also sent in a lengthy objection on behalf of all our members. The latest news on the planning application is that ECDC has declared they require the owner to submit a detailed Environmental Statement, which is likely to take several months to prepare. The application will go no further until this has been submitted.
