The Parish Council object to this application on the following grounds:
- Inaccurate and inconsistent information provided on the traffic survey and duration, accident record, number of lorry movements every 10 minutes and why there is a deemed 82% reduction from the 2011 refused application when reducing the height from 2m to 1m is only 50%
- The flood risk and thereby possible contamination of the water courses from site leakage
- Particular concern is the volume of heavy lorries over a nine month period accessing a narrow road (2 lorries could not pass together) round a blind bend and adjacent to a listed building without foundations.
