Many opponents of the Cholsey Gravel Pit will be pleased to hear that the new leader of the County Council has removed the holder of the Growth and Infrastructure portfolio.
Lorraine Lindsay Gayle has been replaced by Hilary Hibbert-Biles.
Let’s hope she will look more kindly on our strong arguments against the pit. At least she won’t be seen as partial to her own division, which may allow her to be a little more objective.
Sadly (or possibly fortunately) our County Council is no longer in the driving seat as any future decisions will be taken by a Government Inspector.
ALSO Don’t forget the CAGE Public Meetings on 11th and 12th June.
