I am playing devils advocate here.
If the land where the farm is being built on is owned, and it has no bearing on where they live, and the owner of the land has sold the land to the company who are developing the solar farm, or himself involved with the company, then it is their land to do what they want with, when they want to do it. There is really not a lot that can be done against it and you can bet their legal teams had it all sorted before it became public knowledge and they have the full weight of the law on their side. Kickbacks or not being paid in certain circles.
They could still get rid of the farm and the farm workers anyway and leave it barren if the farm does not go ahead which will create another eyesore on the landscape, or sell it on to another company and there could be something else built that is a lot worse than the original plans. For instance an industrial estate or an incinerator plant. How would the population of Sookhome feel then
How would you react If someone came into your property, ie your garden, and started telling you that you cannot plant your favourite flower, veg, trees and your not allowed to have a pond or garden furniture. Would you not kick up and say this is my land and i will do with it as i like
" be off with you " in polite terms. I know for certain that i would. As the law of the land says, your property is yours to do what you like with it.
Is this not the same thing but on a slightly larger scale
What would be better for the Warsop area. To have jobs and security for people ( no matter what company / industry are involved ) or have more shops / firms closing as there seems to be more of every time i come home. Then people have to travel or move away for work instead of staying local.
As pointed out earlier in this thread, i do not live there and should not have a say in whet happens there, but i do care and all my family are still there. I want to see the area developed and the town get back to being a thriving community as much as the next man, and those that know me i was involved when i was at home, loads of pointless meetings where lots get talked about and very little done. ( been there and got the "T"shirt so to speak )
, but do you really think it will happen when every time a company puts plans to do this people kick up and say they don't want it to
The work and other benefits that come with it then go elsewhere.
Should the people who say they are doing what they can for the area not be concentrating helping the development and not be more concerned with stopping it
Screw the padded room, give me a trampoline floor with bubble wrapped walls and a velcro ceiling.
