Blackwood Pics + Eviction Alert + Wot U Can Do!

15-03-2004 17:40

The word from the bailiffs is that there will be an eviction on Wednesday 17th March...

The protest at Blackwood has been fought all through the planning stages for the last 12 years, it didnt happen yesterday or last month. This Welsh community are true fighters and have taken this fight to the High Court twice, they have done surveys, they have had a 4,800 signitured petition from local residents, they have done more than most other communities would in the circumstances. And although the local planning department of Caerphilly council is involved with processing this project, it has been sold the idea cos it involves outside money (outside of Wales). This is primarly for an MOD contractors factory that has been constructed in the centre of a civilian area, that now requires a dual carriage road access to make it viable (and to stop peeping toms, in the local community, seeing what they are up too 24/7). This road was going to cost £16 million, its now gonna cost £97million and its only 2 miles long... so its going to be the most expensive road in Wales soon!
