There are at least 59 anti-pylon and anti-wind groups in the South East. Huge numbers of these members made submissions on Grid 25. If the groups are serious and mean to convince Minister White that they have not gone away, they need to demonstrate a show of strength at this DCENR circus pretending to be a consultation. A lot of difficult questions must be asked and answers demanded.
By registering just five delegates each the South East community groups will ensure an attendance of 295, which will send the DCENR and the Minister a far stronger message than any amount of placards. When they cannot answer our questions, this mad energy policy will be exposed as the nonsense that it is.
Please talk amongst yourselves and ensure that each group sends at least five delegates to this final meeting before they shove the Green Paper down our throats. A poor attendance will allow the DCENR and the Minister to claim victory. Do not let that happen. Register and attend!
