the ropers own a factory?
Yes they own Churchill China in Stoke On Trent. There opinions on Alton Towers are exactly the same as residents who live next to their factory. They have to put up with Alton Towers just for the day, where as the residents who live near to their factory have had to put up with noise and smoke during day and night.
All this as gone completely out of hand now they are appealing against an appeal ! What will be next; an appeal against an appeals appeal :P :P
I must admit two wrongs don’t make a right but I think they should just put this one to rest because its just got way out of hand for nothing. The Roppers aren’t doing themselves any favours either because Alton Towers attracts alot of revenue for the village of Alton and businesses within the area. They are going to be the ones who loose out.
What with these new road plans been put on hold I think Alton Towers have a really good chance to play the Roppers at there advantage. If Alton Towers come off worse with this new court order then they could say no to a new road. Thus the locals wont be too happy with Mr and Mrs Ropper.
Alton Towers are doing there best with the modifications made to the park but in realistic terms its a theme park. They aren’t spread all over the country and there isn’t many of them in comparison to houses in the country.
Its just ashame the local people living next to his factory cant kick up a fuss, I do remember Central News last year when a reporter measured noise levels outside his house. He then went over to Stoke to measure the noise from his factory. Surprise Surprise the factory was over twice as loud as the noise coming from Alton Towers.
As for this new legal battle.Good Luck Alton Towers :P :P
