In December 2013, Maltby Town Council objected to to the Doncaster Council plans for a 79 metres high wind turbine at Fordoles Farm, Micklebring.
A month later they changed their minds and decided that it was a good idea.The public weren’t so keen however, especially as there had been no consultation with them about the plans.
Our ever loyal to the community (Labour Party) Concillor Amy Rushforth has now “led the calls for fresh protest on the basis that the council needed to support the residents” – Advertiser’s words in italics.
Well, “Quelle surprise” to quote a Rotherham ex Labour Party criminal, recently.
How many years has Amy Rushforth ‘served’ on Maltby Town Council ? Has she only just realised that she, and the rest of them, is there to represent the public in all matters ? What made her change her mind about a public consultation and have a new stance on this now that the official consultation closed on January 31st ?
Doncaster Council say that people can still make representations up to the point of the application being considered,
Apparently 10 councillors supported the motion with one against and two abstaintions. Not too difficult to work out who did what there, then.
What a farce.
Year after year, time after time, when it comes to MTC making a decision, that decision is made by the chosen few, prior to the meeting being openly held. Wake up people of Maltby, before this next election if possible, and realise what a fine example of hypocrisy and our town council is.
