It will be a major surprise if planning permission were not to be granted.

Once planning permission has been given, a protest at the site should be allowed, for say an hour so the anti's can get their point across about global capitalism, and then banned thereafter in order to ensure the taxpayer doesn't get saddled with both the tax bill and the inconvenience of the last demo.

Wonder what West Sussex County Council will do - if they do grant permission - when the lawsuits start coming in when people's water is contaminated or their houses start falling down or the ground starts opening up?

No it is to line the pockets of a giant corporation. Do you really think they give a **** about your well being or mine?
