Stop the Burghfield Warhead Assembly facility

Eastern Area Planning Committee consider MoD application for warhead assembly facility, 6.30pm, 4 March, Council Offices, Newbury; demonstration from 5.30pm. More than a thousand objections to the warhead assembly facility have been received by West Berkshire Council, which on 4 March will consider the Ministry of Defence's application to build a warhead assembly facility on a flood plain at AWE Burghfield. The Eastern Area Planning Committee have received a record number of objections, exceeding any previously received by the council. With a growing local opposition and media interest, AWPC urges the committee members to do the right thing, refuse the application and call for a public inquiry. Demonstration organised by local groups from 5.30 outside the council offices.
