I can’t believe it…

If you’ve read part one I mentioned a while back about an Agenda21 project which has recently started in my local town, right outside my house in fact…

In part one I explained that local residents received a rather disingenuous letter from the council which had very little in way of informative information regarding the cutting down of all the folliage and trees, and the reasons thereof.

The explanation given by the council by letter was that it was essential work needed so that the area out the back of us would not flood like it did in 2007.


(In 2007 it flooded because of poor maintenance not anything to do with the local countryside, they could of cleared it by not even cutting down a single tree before it flooded, not unless they wanted it to flood?)

I didn’t and still don’t understand the logic of cutting down trees in the prevention of flooding…

As it turns out the letter they sent out to us is not entirely the whole picture…

  Further up the hill from us there are plans to build a new housing estate and as more houses are being put up in that area the more waste water needs to be shunted downstream (apparently), I was informed by another resident (who now has a rodent problem in her house because of this tree clearing activity) that the area being cleared down hill (right ouside my house) is so the council can build a lagoon in the space that they’ve just cleared, because of the extra water run off by building upstream will create…

Or so they say.

If you are one to believe in the conspiracies surrounding the Agenda21 projects across the planet, you might very well believe that the powers that be want to force residents out of thier homes by devaluing the land so that prices fall and the oil industry can move in and set about buying up land and drilling wells.

You might think this is a ridiculous notion, but it has been already estimated by certain government agencies that the UK would need up to 465,000 small wells built to meet energy demands in the future.

Not only did they clear the land out the back of our house without really consulting the local residents other than an formal letter which doesn’t even mention a pissing lagoon, but they have not followed it up with a consultation with the local residents, or even a follow up letter.

What about our permission as taxpayers and people who live in the area, what about our views. Obviously our opinions don’t matter a shit.


I’m not suggesting that they didn’t make the plans public by putting them in the towns official administrative buildings. They do that as a matter of law,  but to mislead the local residents (who are obviously going to protest or not) by writing a letter which is confusing and doesnt tell the whole picture is quite frankly beyond.

Either way if they did inform the residents and I’ve been misled or the letter about a lagoon had escaped my inbox, its still fucking disgraceful.

They must think we’re all stupid.
