Great News!

Today we heard that the Planning Application for Manning’s Pit has been withdrawn! That’s a tribute to all the hard work and commitment that the community has put into opposing the application. So, to everyone who put a poster in a window, wrote a letter of objection, signed a petition, attended a march or protest, bought a cake from a coffee morning or just cheered us all on – give yourself a pat on the back.

However, delighted though we are at this news, let‘s not relax our guard just yet.


It’s too early to say whether the threat to Manning’s Pit has now totally disappeared or whether it will re-emerge in some new form. Hopefully, the situation will become clearer in the next few days. As soon as we know more we will let you know.
