I would like to appeal to all the residents of the villages along The Wash to fight this silica sand proposal with every means at their disposal.
This is the most horrendous situation I can imagine for these beautiful historic villages. The thought of the traffic, pollution and destruction of the countryside is beyond my comprehension. There must be alternatives to this. It is cheaper to import coal from abroad than mine it here. I would like to know has this or any other alternative been looked into by Norfolk County Council. I think we deserve better than this.
