Sharon Hodgson has today handed over a petition from the Washington and Wearside Against Gasification group to the leader of Sunderland City Council, Cllr Graeme Miller and written to the Development Management Committee to reiterate her opposition to the planning application.
Sharon has supported the group whilst an MP and continues to as the Labour Party candidate in the upcoming General Election. Sharon passionately spoke against the planning application at the planning committee hearing in July.
Sharon said, "It is important people realise that, whilst we won the first round, we must be vigilant and prepare for the public enquiry taking place in February."
