Hurrah for the Environment Agency!

The plan for a 'super dairy' at Nocton has been withdrawn. The Environment Agency stated their concerns that groundwater (from which drinking water is taken) would become contaminated. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lincolnshire-12485392

Nocton is up-river of our swimming spot on the River Witham and we'd been concerned about the potential for water pollution affecting the quality of the river. This is good news for us and good news for those cows too. Thank you the EA. Let's hope we can now look forward to swimming in the clear green water of the Witham again this summer.

Yes, a triumph for The Big Society??!! Nah, just well established professional public organisation doing what we pay them to do and listening to public concerns....more like a legacy of the good old labour government I'd say if I was going to start ranting!
