What is it with councils?
Is it just my imagination or has the standard of local government got even lower?
And is this particular one going to search out and close any petrol stations in its area? Because I believe they store rather a lotof liquid and gaseous hydrocarbons on site.
In our part of the world we've had incomers from cities opposing:
A chicken plant that the locals wanted to provide much needed unskilled jobs.
Free public wi-fi to help regenerate a decayed town centre
5G because, woo.
Then there were the ones who moved into a house next to a pig farm and tried to get the pig farm shut down.
They also wanted to have a joinery closed because it was "heavy industry". (They lost that one and it is now a major housebuilding supplier but you would hardly know it was there.)
Councils seem very willing to listen to small noisy minorities so long as they are suitably middle class (and usually seem to have a lot of time to spare since they sold their house in London, bought a few BfLs and moved to the country.)
