The planning committee has decided to let the planning application for the new dam to go ahead at the bottom of Coppull Lane.
At the planning meeting it was suggested that the planning dept had not notified residents of a part of the application. If this is the case I will launch a high court judicial review as the planning dept of Wigan Council can simple not rule rough shot over the law and notify people.
At the planning committee hearing the environment agency even said that if this dam was not built then people would die in Wigan when Wigan flooded. What a disgrace, how on earth could they say this when there is no evident that Wigan would flood never mind how they could prove that people would die. A resident after the meeting described the environment agency has being like terrorists. What a disgrace this government agency is acting in this way.
LABOUR, THE TORIES AND LIB DEMS VOTED FOR THIS DAM!
