New Lanark Embarrasment

“Not in my back yard” is a term often used to support deemed necessary social constructs. The following article however, outlines a proposed extension of a quarry that is not in MY back yard, but the WORLD’s back yard as it encroaches on a World Heritage Site.

The following front page article appeared Friday 8th 2013 in THE TIMES  Scotland Edition.. Historic Scotland has come under severe criticism for its ‘astonishingly poor quality‘ (John Campbell QC) regarding the written response to the Mexican owned mining company CEMEX proposal for Hyndford Quarry at the World Heritage Site of New Lanark Village on Falls of Clyde.

The most ‘trenchant criticism’ was made by John Campbell QC to Derek Mackay the planning Minister.
