Nocton Dairies Limited

Early Day Motion 1037

Nocton Dairies Ltd planning application has come to the attention of MPs in Parliament.  An Early Day Motion has been raised by Eric Martlew (Right Hon MP for Carlisle - Labour), opposing the proposed dairy unit in Lincolnshire.  At the time of my posting, there were 29 signatories to this Motion.  You may wish to lobby your local MP to add their name to the Motion if you feel strongly about the proposed development.  See here for more information:
