WORK to pave the way for Copeland’s planned new nuclear power station has been delayed – by a lordly intervention.
Have your say
well, he could donate the money to local development of a different nature; he doesn't have to be greedy and keep it. old poor max, doesn't have enough to play with...
Lord Egremont has every right to protect his assets or investments. I am sure that Mr Reed would was also take advantage of this unique investment if he was in the same position. You don't get anything for nothing and I hardly think Mr Reed is in a position to request Lord Egremont to forego what is due to him so that others can make a profit.
If it was a plebs land they would just issue a compulsory purchase order.
