ECO ISLAND? ISLE OF WIGHT COUNCIL – ALL TALK?

This is the second video in the ECO ISLAND? series and examines one small area in which our respected and revered leaders, and the contractors acting on their behalf, are pointlessly wasting resources and causing unnecessary damage to the environment regardless of their claims.

In fact far from being “Eco Island” the Isle of Wight council are responsible for allowing the Island to become an exceptionally wasteful and environmentally unfriendly place. To the casual observer, beaches may simply appear as barren stretches of sand – beautiful, but largely devoid of life or ecological processes. In reality, nothing could be further from the truth. Sandy beaches not only provide habitat for numerous species of plants and animals, they also serve as breeding grounds for many species that are not residential to the beach.

ECO ISLAND? THE 3 FOLLIES OF APPLEY

A classic Isle of Wight council cock-up.  The cost, both to the council tax payer and the environment, of installing this composting facility that is so ludicrously small it is pointless and unusable in a park of several acres, is a clear demonstration of how wasteful and out of touch they are.

This is ill conceived, probably the result of an overindulgent business lunch at the council tax payers expense, it isn’t fit for purpose and even if it was given where it is situated any residue would flow straight down the hill. It has been put here for the purpose of appearing to be acting in an environmentally friendly fashion and to impress the old boys network that awards Green Flags to public parks.

Note the token grass clippings that have been put in it,no doubt following orders from the top, to make it appear as if in use….. THEN LOOK AT THE REAL DUMPING GROUND!

ISLE OF WIGHT COUNCIL REJECT 10:10 CARBON REDUCTION AGREEMENT

David Pugh’s Isle of Wight Council  rejects the motion to sign up to the 10:10 agreement, a motion put forward by Cllr Geoff Lumley.

This action is particularly surprising given the way back in December 2007, the IW Council started labelling the Island, ‘Eco Island’ – which it would be reasonable to assume came with some kind of commitment to trying to achieve an Eco Island. (more…)

David Pugh Needs to go aswell!

We need informed independents, not idiots reading from a pre-determined script so they can sing in unison. Expose them and the damage they’ve done to our school system and our eco island image (the one thing that could resurrect the Island economy long term).

Get them out and watch how this island progresses/regenerates
