    The Proposals put forward are incompatible with Development Plan, Local Plan, National Planning Frameworks 3 & 4, and the Ravenscraig masterplan.

    The character of a new area changed - forever.

    1,000 new build and affordable 2, 3 and 4 bedroom houses for local families - denied. ££1.9m of annual council tax lost - enough to fund 72 new teachers; 80 home care workers; re-open Kilbowie and restore Christmas lights.

    Pollution free new primary schools with safe routes to school - impossible. ¿ 1,000 new homes with local spend in local stores - lost.

    800 dirty diesel HGV lorry movements every day (1 every 100 seconds) trundling past our homes in phase one alone.

    Incompatible with Scotland's recently adopted UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

    Displacing existing North Lanarkshire jobs and competing against existing rail freight sites.

    More sustainable sites for rail freight that don't block Ravenscraig regeneration - available.

    Noise, light and air pollution, not to mention commercial vehicles resting up on local streets.

    Huge local environmental, biodiversity, ecological impact & loss of ancient woodland. Years of construction from 8am - 7pm.

    Local property prices plummeting.

    Some say it's a deal done behind closed doors.

    It doesn't have to be that way.

    A Scottish Government 'National Development' Regeneration Priority.

    Plans opposed by SNP and Scottish Labour Scottish Parliamentary candidates.

    Lets access the £50m Vacant & Derelict Land Fund, not leave regeneration to a flawed freightliner solution that blights Ravenscraig and blocks out more sustainable investment solutions.

    It's time for the new community Lanarkshire was promised, building back better from the pandemic, not massive industrial buildings at any cost to communities.
