Local feelings run high

One of the comments we received in response to last week’s post, Finally, in writing, how AI thinks it can wrestle 1.2 million tonnes from Straitgate, clearly and eloquently sums up what many local people think about Aggregate Industries' reckless scheme:
Who would ever believe an outfit as shabby and slapdash as AI could possibly follow the provisions they say they would in respect of the water table. Good grief I wouldn't trust them to dig my veg patch let alone a hydrologically sensitive part of our local enviroment. Can you imagine it? Unless they plan to excavate using hundreds of people each with a piezometer and a dessert spoon, they stand no chance in a million years of fulfilling this pledge.
