STREETER CALLS FOR ROAD RETHINK
The new road, connecting the mine to the road system within Plympton, is expected to service 200 Heavy Goods Vehicles daily. Local residents, whose homes were not built at the time the original planning permission was granted in 1986, have voiced their concern about the negative impact this will have on their quality of life, and the safety of their children. Mr Streeter chaired a packed public meeting last Friday at which the anger of local residents spilled over.
In an attempt to find an alternative solution, Mr Streeter has suggested that instead of building an entirely new road, the lower part of the old Lee Moor road could be upgraded. This would protect the peaceful residential area around the quiet residential part of Plympton currently in the firing line, whilst also encouraging the exploitation of the mine and the promise of new jobs it would bring.
"We want the mine, but the 1000 householders whose lives are set to be shattered by this HGV hell do not want the road," said the MP. "The solution is to upgrade the existing road and I have called upon the Secretary of State to intervene to force this solution upon Devon County Council."
