Lady Godiva rides while Lancashire County Council tramples

Former campaigner's picture

7 December: Lady Godiva rode through Halton to protest at Lancashire County Council’s £123.3 million Heysham to M6 Link Road.

 Lady Godiva's protestA ‘naked’ Lady Godiva rode through the streets of Halton in Lancashire on 4 December to highlight the huge cost to the environment and to the taxpayer of the Heysham to M6 Link Road (see also here). 

Meanwhile Lancashire County Council trampled blithely on, as they submitted their application to the Independent Planning Commission (IPC) yesterday for a new public inquiry. The IPC will decide by 4 January whether to accept the application, and if they do there will be an inquiry next year.

We will be standing shoulder to shoulder with local campaigners from TSLM in exposing the flaws in this scheme, and the huge environmental and financial cost of the scheme.
