Saving the Gateway to St.Just
This iconic view as you head to St just, Land’s End and Sennen could be lost forever if a proposed concrete crushing and waste disposal venture goes ahead. Despite being denied by local and regional elected representatives and despite strong objections by the ANOB Natural England and Historic England and despite having a World Heritage status and being site of special scientific interest it could still go ahead at appeal this coming Wednesday.
As well as being a perfect example of Cornish mining heritage I am told of equal value to Truro Cathedral, the surrounding land has been fallow for over a hundred and 30 years and is an established and beautiful wild place supporting a large diversity of native fauna and flora.. Our wild places are increasingly rare and increasingly valuable. Concrete crushing has devastating effects on the environment stopping the growth of all plants for up to a hundred years. If you feel strongly about this as I do your participation at a meeting on Wednesday could make all the difference. St. John’s hall at 10am.... If you are unable to make that you could leave a message here and I might be able to read it out
