Re: Abingdon Weir at Risk from Hydro Project ?

Final 5 days to object to the EA If you have not done so already your support would be much appreciated . An objection is the only way we can ensure our needs are taken into account. Future generations of kayakers will thank you.
Details of how to do it are in this thread.
Thanks.
