Following Novaro's link this afternoon I finally got off my rear end and mailed my local MP, Robert Goodwill and Jake Berry the Minister for Northern Powerhouse. In essence, I asked if they had/would also bring pressure to bear on any relevant Government Department to support the project. Whilst I anticipate a fairly (somewhat cynically) typical, non committal, MP's response I take the view that if one does nothing then that's the best one can expect ! Happy to share any replies.
mail12. Thanks for that link. It's great to hear about local people being employed. So many times in the corporate world one hears similar promises made yet unfulfilled. For me, a heart warming read on many levels.
Verde. Just wait for the planning application to be made then the opportunity to object will arise. I'm certain there's enough locals on this board to make you aware when the application has been submitted.
Golfer. Maybe just a comment to keep the Company in the public eye ? The Times ( as opposed to the Sunday Times ) have always been very supportive of SXX with many reports made on RNS announcements. That said The Sunday Times have never been less than supportive with a view on the Northern Powerhouse. Bearing the above in mind, McCrum is from the FT and a different publishing house. You takes yer pick in that scenario !!
Hi Sheps. Yep, still lurking and still an avid reader ( apart from the B word debate ! ). Many thanks for last night's reply. Good to hear that the local accommodation providers are benefitting. All the best. PB.
Casapinos. I recall attending a Planning Meeting at Scarborough in February 2015 where the application for construction workers' temporary accommodation at Stainsacre Lane, Whitby was approved. Since then I've heard no more. I'd be grateful if you could ask if the accommodation is still required or might it be a saving ?
... seems to be working overtime. We even got a mention in today's Sunday Times Homes Section (of all places) with the mine being one of the economic attractions of living in Scarborough. Keep up the good work guys !!
Couldn't see a great deal Stokey - by design the mine entrance road doesn't permit sight of the current works nor, in the long term, the proposed offices. That said, in the few minutes I was there a couple of civil engineering company vans entered and left along with a couple of 'spectators' who pulled up.
