We are still waiting for Provectus to make up their mind about submitting a planning application for the Hilltop Opencast scheme.
We understand that they have had discussions with the Derbyshire planning officers over the last few months and still have a large number of issues to resolve. It looks like it will be some months before they make a decision about submitting an application – so much for their original intention of putting in an application last autumn.
With County Council Elections coming up on 2 May 2013 we have organised a Hustings Meeting to give the two candidates for Clay Cross North Division an opportunity to give us their views on the Hilltop Opencast proposals.
Friday 26 April 2013
7pm for 7.30pm start
Holmgate Community Centre
A good turn out at this meeting will remind Provectus that we are still here and ready to mount a strong opposition to any planning application they may submit.
