We’ve just heard that Natural England have granted the needed licenses and demolition work has started at Northern United!
From what we’ve gathered, only a few tiles have been removed so far, but we all know what happens to buildings when the roof is removed.
Yes, some of them are derelict already. No, they don’t conform to what’s considered to be ‘pretty’, but this isn’t the point. Removing these buildings is key to the development of 200 acres of Forest – OUR LAND – as it’s where the spine road is going.
The claims are that only one building contains bats, which apparently is utter rubbish. The maternal roost building cannot be taken down legally until September, but will be disturbed by the works – not to mention all the other wildlife there.
From 8am tomorrow, we intend to protest and make our opposition to this development heard! Come join us!
Bring banners, placards, warm things and anything useful you can think of. An info camp will also be set up and we intend to be a peaceful, lawful pain in the arse for as long as it takes!
