So the more that people and other groups get involved in spreading the message and shouting out about this plan and about just how mad, bad and dangerous it is, the more chance we have of stopping it in its tracks. We have produced a new leaflet which needs distributing, we don’t have much time to spread the word before the planning meeting on March 7th 2018.
