CAMPAIGNERS against creating a landfill site at Hafod Quarry were praised for the quality of their evidence during last week's public inquiry.
The Hafod Environmental Action Group has been challenging the plan on a number of fronts for some time.
'Now, after all our campaigning, we just have to wait,' said group spokeswoman Pauline Smout.
'It was a very complex inquiry with many legal issues to consider, so it was difficult to judge whether it went well for either side.
'We are glad the planning inspectors were able to make a site visit, however.
'They could see our points, such as the fact that the newt fence erected to protect the Great Crested Newt colony effectively traps them on the site.
'The inspectors could also see the close proximity to housing of the site.
'At the inquiry we raised our concerns at the lack of an environmental impact study in the applications by Mersey Waste Holdings (MWH) and the fact part of the site is a protected Site of Special Scientific Interest.
'There is little more we can do now until the decision is made. However, we would like to thank Cllrs Jim Woodrow, Cyril Williams, Malcolm Hughes, Dave Bithell and Nick Colbourne for their support and indeed, thank you to everyone who has stood with us as we tried to protect the quarry site.'
