Stop the stink
The company behind Walley’s Quarry in Silverdale has applied for planning permission to expand their site in Stoke-on-Trent.
We don’t want them handling dangerous gases in our city, when they can’t be trusted to do what’s right. We won’t allow them to make our lives a misery.
The site is in Sneyd Hill but we all know the impact will be felt across the city.
Labour has demanded that the Council rejects this application.
You can sign this petition and get your voice heard. The petition was started by Councillor Jane Ashworth OBE, the leader of Stoke-on-Trent Labour Group, and it has already been signed more than 1400 times this week.
Lee Polshaw, the Labour candidate for Penkhull & Stoke, is determined that we will Stop the Stink, making it one of her top campaign pledges. Lee said:
“I’ve signed the petition and hope you will too. I can’t believe that after the abject failure of the Silverdale site they’re even considering expanding another site. The Council must reject this application”.
Lee and Labour colleagues will be joining the Stop the Stink march on Monday 21 June at 10am from Walley’s Quarry to Newcastle town centre (subject to COVID restrictions of course).
Join the march, sign the petition and Stop the Stink.
Vote Lee, Vote Labour on 1 July
