Stop Perth Incinerator
Perth City Centre councillor Peter Barrett has certainly been busy over the last 2 weeks!
With a deadline set at midnight on Friday, Peter and his team amassed an amazing 2300 letters of objection and a petition of over 12oo. As well as door-to-door campaigning, the team also collected objections at Edinburgh Road Tesco (within sight of the proposed incinerator) and the town centre. The response from the public was incredibly positive - people were queuing up to sign! A Facebook campaign was also set up, with over 200 members.
The last 1000 letters were handed over on Friday morning, with many more flooding in via email until the last minute.
Well done Peter and the team!
