Appeal lost at Fife

Following consideration of all representations in this case, no matters have been found to outweigh the benefits of the appeal scheme.
Such benefits seemingly outweighed matters raised in a 400 signature petition, matters raised in 100 letters of objection, and matters raised by an NHS Fife consultant in public health medicine "that residents living nearby, particularly children, could be harmed by dust emissions”.

Yet again, mineral industry profits before negative impacts on local people.
