It's standard. They do it with wind turbines. A handout to the locals and a lump sum for the local playground etc. The agenda is to keep it as a local issue, as locals can be bribed, whereas the reality is that bad stuff is bad for everyone. Tarmac are currently doing it again at Thornborough: "a planning application has been submitted to North Yorkshire County Council by Tarmac applying to extend its Nosterfield Quarry. As part of it, it is proposing to ‘gift’ to an appropriate body in perpetuity control of the Central and Southern henges" (the landscapes of which Tarmac has already entirely wrecked, including a landfill site two inches away)
So no, you aren't very cynical. I am though!
