A Petition protesting against the extension of the licence for the Arpley Landfill Site was presented in the House of Commons yesterday by Warrington South MP, David Mowat.
The petition declares that "the people of Warrington have put up with the Arpley landfill site and the traffic, smells and other undesirable side effects which it causes for long enough." It urges that all reasonable steps be taken "to ensure that the site's licence is not extended."
The text of the petition will be printed in Hansard, Parliament's record of proceedings.
David Mowat said:
"This petition was collected by community leaders and councillors of all political persuasions. We are all united against this licence extension. We've put up with it for 20 years. That's long enough, especially when the Council will no longer be using it from next year."
