NEWS: Par Desalination Information 

Dear members,

We are forwarding an email from the Desalination Information Group (DIG) to you all. We know many of you are aware of the plans from South West Water (SWW) to install a marine pipeline as part of a desalination plant in Par.

We currently have an opportunity to object to an application for test drilling. Details are provided below and we encourage you to access the example objection via the link as even the test drilling process will impact our precious seagrass and maerl.

Many thanks


Dear Supporters,

Email number 2!

19th June Deadline for objections to test drilling!

You will recall that we discovered SWW had put in a Marine License Application to the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) to conduct `Geotechnical Investigations’ in St Austell Bay at the end of April?

When we plotted coordinates for the 18 different test drill sites, they appeared to head straight through the seagrass and maerl beds!!!

Lets stop this from happening!

Together, we succeeded in getting the MMO deadline for comments from the public extended from 28 to 42 days.This gives us until 19th June to submit objections.

Objection templates! You asked and we’ve pulled them together!

We know many of you really want to be sure your objection counts but will not have had time to read through application documents! So, we have put together several different examples to choose from to copy and paste plus Step-by-Step guides to make objecting easier!

Please click here to access example objections and instructions.

Tell your friends! The more evidence-based objections, the better!

Please do try to make your objection personal to you by adapting the examples. If you submit an objection that you think would work for others, please send it to us and we can upload it too.

Just to be clear, the desalination plant IS subject to planning approval.

We CAN express our opposition and influence the decision with the right information and knowledge!  

Please forward this email to any friends and family you think would be willing to submit an objection.

Many thanks for your continued support
