PEEL HOLDINGS SERVES BARTON MOSS EVICTION NOTICE IN SALFORD
 

Star date: 18th February 2014

BARTON MOSS CAMP GETS EVICTION NOTICE

Peels Holdings, or the Peel Group, today served notice of eviction to the Barton Moss Community Protection Camp in the name of two of its companies – Manchester Ship Canal Developments Ltd and Peel Investments (North) Ltd. The case will be heard at the High Court at Manchester Civil Justice Centre on 21st February.

The eviction notice came during another dramatic day of what Salford residents called "disgusting policing" at Barton Moss Children's Day, that saw more arrests as the iGas lorries delivered to its exploratory drilling site.

At around 4pm this afternoon, bailiffs arrived at the Barton Moss Community Protection Camp, handing out `possession claims' or eviction notices to anyone whose hands they could put them in.

The notices, to `Persons Unknown', were served in the names of Manchester Ship Canal Developments Ltd and Peel Investments (North) Ltd, two companies owned by Peel Holdings, latterly the Peel Group, which owns the land that both the Camp and the iGas drilling site are on.

An accompanying letter from Wragge and Co solicitors stated the `the Claimants seek a possession order' on the grounds of `trespass'.

The case will be heard on Friday 21st February at the High Court at Manchester Civil Justice Centre and, the Salford Star understands that it will be contested.

The eviction notice came, sandwiched in between lorries arriving at the iGas exploratory drilling site this morning, and leaving late this afternoon. On what was designated a Children's Day at the Camp, Salford residents and visitors witnessed more aggressive tactics by Greater Manchester Police Tactical Aid Unit. One Salford resident who had never been involved in protest before called it "disgusting policing".

As a young person living around this area I'm more concerned with the destruction of the areas involved in this 'brilliant' source of energy. However temporary how would you like someone to come and destroy your home and leave you the pile of rubble and say 'we're done now you can return'. We need to definitely start thinking more enviromentally before salford becomes a concrete jungle.

Nick luddites were against progress just like your Pro Fracking Brigade it is just the old way of obtaining fuel by ill treating the Earth And the people who live on it, Scott sorry but Fracking is not True Progress it is just another good earner for the Torys Tax Dodging Party And if all you read on the Internet is lies how do you suggest we get the truth?

It is high time these energy luddites are silenced for good. Radioactive substances are not AN INGREDIENT OF DRILLING MUD, THAT IS JUST ANOTHER SCAREMONGERING STORY. wE NEED ENERGY SECURITY ABOVE ALL ELSE, MOST OF WHAT IS SAID ABOUT FRACKING IS ABSOLUTE DRIVEL, SINCE THE PRACTICE WAS DEVELOPED IN THE 1940'S millions of wells have been drilled but only a minute fraction of them have had any problems. Sorry about the capitals, caps lock was on and I didn't notiice.

So Scott every thing that . was dumped on the Moss in the past was recyclable/The Radio Active elements being used in Fracking are not / One well takes two million gallons of water to Frack Three Quarters of it are left in the Earth it is polluted with over 100 different kind s of poisons most of which are left in the earth rendering it useless and injurious to the people and animals alike/ If you are in any doubt about the dangers to the people in the vinicity of these wells I suggest you get on the Internet and read for yourself About the sickness and devastation that is being caused in Country's where Frackin is allowed/ If it is safe like you seem to assume Why won't France allow a French Company to Frack in France ) We do not have to poison the UK to get a so called cheap fuel/ The only thing that is going Cheap is the HEALTH AND WELFARE OF OUR CHILDREN( FACT) UK Company do any Fracking in France

People moaning about the policing, I feel sorry for the lorry drivers, if one stupid protestor jumps in front of a lorry to try and stop it and the driver doesn't see him/her, then what happens. The driver gets arrested for vehicular manslaughter and loses his job and lively hood. If you wanna protest yeah fine just let the lorries who are normal everyday people just doing a job do their job.

Greedy bastards - Peel Holdings - adding to their billions sitting in the Isle of Man along with their elaborate web of tax avoidance schemes. They don't give a shite about the people of Irlam so long as they are making a bob or two.

SALFORD COUNCIL IMPOSES ROOM CHARGES IN GATEWAYS

"For some of our most vulnerable and older people this club is a lifeline..." Councillor John Warmisham

Salford Council is being accused of letting down the old and the vulnerable after it introduced charges for community rooms in the Gateway Centre spaces it leases from the MaST LIFT Company, to which it pays extortionate rents.

At Pendleton Gateway, Salford Council's new huge room hire charges for groups like the Golden Girls line dancing class is threatening to isolate elderly people who use the activity to socialise and keep fit. Now the class may have to close or move.
