Aughton in revolt?
We hope so. “This revolt is against the proposed “Substation on Sandy Lane” and will hopefully encourage other Aughton residents to support us in our objection to what we see as a blot on our beautiful rural landscape.
“We cannot know how this huge development will affect our environment but can only imagine unknown levels of noise and light pollution impacting both wildlife and residents negatively.
“We held a meeting last night ( we do that sometimes) and it would seem that we are fighting against the construction of a POWER-PLANT and not a substation. The enormity of this industrial construction is mind-boggling. This will absolutely have a devastating impact on our neighborhood, our property, wildlife, environment and our physical and mental health.
“The documented risks associated with living near such a structure include (not only) a doubling of the risk of childhood leukemia but the potential for explosion at the site as was seen more than once last year along the same line. This cannot be allowed to go any further . We want to protect our home and environment . NO to Sandy Lane “Substation” !! …..NO to Network Rail !!
