If you are a local resident, have family in the area or once lived locally, are interested in the future of our environment and our longterm health and wellbeing, we would be most greatful if you took some time to contact AGADI and tell us what you think about the proposal and if you would be happy to support our campaign in whatever way you can...
...your assistance will ensure the protection and survival of your local environment from the resulting impacts of such an industry.
We look forward to hearing from you, and many thanks in advance.
