An appeal submitted by developers to turn the former Daw Mill Colliery site into a distribution park have been condemned by localLabour Councillors.
Labour Group Leader, Cllr Adam Farrell said “We have always been clear as a Labour Group, we oppose the plans to develop Daw Mill and the land should be restored to green belt. Harworth Estates, who own the land, have shown a complete disregard for the views, needs and everyday lives of local people. They are putting profit before the people of North Warwickshire.
The plans to develop Daw Mill are wrong for a number of reasons. Not least because there is a condition of restoration from the 1990’s. The plans would cause untold disruption and pressure for our local communities and the infrastructure that servers them.
Labour in North Warwickshire remains committed to opposing development at Daw Mill. We recognise that there is cross party opposition and we’ll do everything we can as a group to help stop this development taking place, working with anyone and everyone that helps the cause – getting Daw Mill green!”
