Ancholme Clean-Up Success

Good news on our campaign to clean up the River Ancholme in Brigg. Cllr Nigel Sherwood met with the Environment Agency this morning who have agreed to clean up the river bank shortly.

We will obviously continue to clean up the river until that tender is in place but this sounds very much like excellent news.

Conservatives Doing Better Up North than Down South!

I woke up this morning in a really good mood following a great weekend on the doorstep. Lots of leaflets delivered and some very good responses on the door steps, particularly from Labour voters, or should I say ex-Labour voters.

Burton Wind Farm Rejected - AGAIN!

I attended the Planning Committee meeting in Brigg today which determined the re-submitted planning application for the Flixborough Grange Wind Farm. Fortunately, despite the best efforts of a few Labour Councillors, the application was rejected. Every Conservative voted against the windfarm. This was the right result and credit must go to all those residents who worked so hard to oppose it. We did however see Labour at their very worst today. One of the Labour Councillors who voted to support...
