New housing versus industrial waste pile

Daily Mail: Could Cornish slag heap become a Unesco site?

"Dominating the local landscape, it has been part of life in this Cornish town for decades. Now campaigners are tying to protect this historic 'landmark' by declaring it a World Heritage Sight – even though it is just a massive slag heap. The Great Treverbyn Tip, or 'Sky Tip', is made from dumped china clay and was first created in 1936, but it is now under threat from plans to flatten it to make way for an eco-town." It seems anything is better than the prospect of new houses being built.
