The land PREL are keen on developing is wholly unsuitable and near to the council incinerator. That land we find is owned by the former Conservative Councillor and Leader of Peterborough City Council, none other than Marco Cereste!! Although some source are claiming that new council leader Cllr Holdich has an interest, he could of course offloaded the parcel of land prior to becoming Leader. The cherry on the cake for the current Council Leader Cllr Holdich, is that his son in law a Mr Christopher Williams, is Managing Director of PREL. Just how cosy is that!?
UPDATE: Guess what another 'Public Meeting' has come and gone chaired by Cllr Turnip, sinking under the enormity of the task ahead he's now meekly suggesting "setting up a campaign website."
By the time that ever sees the light of day, a few thousand tons of slurry may well be on its way into the Horsey Toll site... What part of ...it's a done deal.... does he not understand? Cllr Turnip is also suggesting that Peterborough City Council needs to approve the scheme. Not so. The access to the site and the two traffic movements a day, can be facilitated by a blister roundabout, rather than an expensive reworking of the local road network. WE also understand the operators of the Horsey Toll site could easily swallow up tall he refuse destined for the Fengate site.
Pack up your tent, Councillor, the circus has already left town...but left all kinds of crap behind!
