Some photos from Hafod Quarry and Wrexham Guildhall:

Lawrence Isted is Wrexham's Chief Planning Officer. While councillors spoke for a minute or two each at the planning meeting, Mr Isted took it upon himself to answer every comment at length, usually with an exhortation for councillors not to revoke the planning permission. We have to ask ourselves - what's in it for him? And we bet he doesn't have a landfill site on his doorstep.

Two protesters with placards; the site is behind them with diggers in view.

Protesters at an early morning protest at the site.

Landfill is not a good option for anyone, including the people of Merseyside. Much of the waste being dumped at Hafod could be locally recycled and reused and raise revenue for Merseyside, instead of which Merseysiders are paying through the nose, or at least through their council taxes, to transport and dump their waste at a site which will be a toxic health hazard for years.


For anyone who wants to know what a Mersey Waste Transport wagon looks like, here is a picture of one.

Remember Tryweryn, the valley near Bala which was flooded to provide a supply of drinking water to the people of Merseyside. Liverpool has apologised for this, albeit 40 years late. Johnstown people don't want an apology for the landfill in 40 years time. They want it to stop now.

Erm, in the pic where you mention 2 protesters, and DIGGERS in view. If you look closer, you'll notice that there isn't a digger in sight at all! There are two dumpers, and about half a bulldozer. Stop making a fool of yourself, and get it right. Nugget!

Hey, you're right! Lucky you're there to check these details for us, anon. :o)
