Reminder: Whitwell Against Alkane Public Meeting

Just to remind you all that the next public meeting for Whitwell Against Alkane (Alkane Energy PLC) will take place on 8th September 2011 from 7:30PM at the Whitwell Community Centre.  As usual the bar will be open from 7PM.

As we all know, one of the concerns with Alkane is an increase in the levels of HGVs using the village – of course they assure us they won’t use the village, but we all know the drivers themselves will use whatever route they think is the quickest – and Alkane in the past haven’t answered if they will impose fines on drivers who do use the village, which here we think says it all.  With that in mind WAA have invited the people behind a campaign to stop HGVs using Whitwell completely to come and do a brief talk.

As well as the HGV issue, the following items will also be discussed:

  • Residents Liaison Committee
  • Chemical and pathogens
  • Wind Direction
  • The Rumour Mill
  • Review of 2010/2011

If you’re going to come to the meeting (and we hope you do, and urge everyone to try and bring a neighbour or three) then why not set out a bit earlier and come along to the Safer Neighbourhood Police Panel meeting the hour before at the community centre?
