This is a request to all of those who care about local food in Somerset to consider sending a letter or email in support of Peter Wright’s Public Inquiry into refusal of planning permission by South Somerset District Council to site a commercial glasshouse for production of protected crops on the edge of Barton St David, five miles south of Glastonbury.

Attached to this blog are Peter's request for support, a detailed proposal summary and a photo of the glasshouse he intends to recycle (see right).

Please take a moment to read the attached documents and write in support of Peter Wright. And please forward to your networks.

Just look at those wonderful greenhouses! They could feed so many people with healthy local organic food.

Now look again...I've often seen greenhouses like that used as garden centres, selling bedding plants in the Spring (and plastic tat coming up to Christmas!)  :(

If the application had been from a company like Dobbies, do you think they would have been refused?

SSDC just don't get it - they shouldn't be supporting NIMBYs; they should be supporting a business that could be feeding the people who voted them in, building local resilience. Well done Peter, let's all support him!
