Write to the CAA! Because like Dan sez, they've changed the fight paths on a trial period and it's fucking everything up good and proper. So the CAA need to know.
Won't use company headed paper though
Public Inquiry 2 -- the return of the Public kicks off on Weds 22 April at Dorking Halls. Please come if you can and show your support. See www.lhag.org.uk for more information.
In other news, the world has gone oil mad with this Gatwick find. LHAG are being asked for interviews all over the BBC. Bizarre world.
Catch up from week 1 of the Inquiry
It's fucking batshit. This alone should mean no drilling for fucking oil: Surrey Hills AONB
Area of outstanding natural beauty.
Rocket surgery it ain't.
Details from Friday;
Good quotes there from Mr. Nolan.
He sounds like a bit of a dick tbf.
HGV route In its evidence to the inquiry, Europa has described Coldharbour Lane as an established HGV route. Mr Nolan told the inquiry this was untrue because there was a width restriction of 6ft 6” on the road.
That quote is gold. Have they even driven down that road?!
Great comments from the mysterious Mr Nolan. Forensic
Is it on on Friday btw kabbes? Am wfh some might come and lend support.
I use to live on Boxhill. If I was still there I'd be protesting as much as possible. This area must be saved because of its amazing beauty.
Good luck to the protesters, lets hope you succeed.
Exactly, stunning countryside right on London's doorstep.
I used to do a bit of foraging up the hill too, lots of great free hedgerow food, and the wildlife was amazing. The views towards Brighton on a good day...too much to lose.
I went on a tour of Denbies on the land train with my lad at the weekend. The views from the top of the vineyard near the owners house are fucking stunning. You can see Leith hill tower right across to Kent and round to Box hill
I Googled the owner when I got home and he has a somewhat colourful and controversial past as the owner of Biwater
Wrapping up on Friday, likely all witnesses finished by end Weds and there will be a site visit all day Thurs.
Come along, that would be great!
We had a lovely walk a couple of weeks ago, Ranmore Common down through Denbies and over to the stepping stones, then in to the Stepping Stones pub. Behind Denbies there's a phone mast that's been made to look like a tree, was pretty convincing too.
I'll be there in spirit. If it was near enough I'd be there to protest for sure.
Can you ensure that there are no forestry operations on Thursday?
Fat chance! The only time they do it is on Inspector site visits, the bastards.
Sounds about right!
Really well done to you kabbes for taking on this fight, you, Mrs kabbes and all those in LHAG have done a tremendous job so far, even the strange Mr Nolan deserves some credit. Everything crossed that sense is seen.
Good luck, if I was still South of the river I'd love to take a trip out there
Lovely latest newsletter kabbes, I know your granny doesn't need to be told how to suck eggs and I really can't see how it will go in Europa's favour, but as Mr N acknowledges it still could go wonky.Everything crossed and if Sepp has had a hand in proceedings I'm well up for some direct action.
maybe some kind of rave Bahnhof Strasse
What they done?
the Inspector found in favour of Europa Oil and Gas's appeal
je suis the surrey hills.
Really struggling to think of a more inappropriate place to drill for oil. And there really is no way that large numbers of trucks going up the hill won't damage those ancient lanes.
Perhaps lots of cheap, old, but legal cars parked in spots to frustrate lorries, kabbes ?
Does that mean they're going to proceed?
Are there any links, or reports about whats going on at the moment?
