Please provide your comments on the environmental permit application received from East Kent Recycling Limited (Required)
I object to the environmental permit application on the following grounds: 1 Noise and pollution from the HGVs using a creekside track to access the site 2 The site is very close to a Site of Special Scientific Interest valued internationally for its bird life. The birds are affected by the noise and pollution coming from EKR. 3 HGVs accessing the site are a danger to pedestrians who use the same track which is a part of the Saxon Shore Way, a long-distance footpath. This is a major hazard which cannot be underestimated. Many people are afraid to use the path. 4 Most of the HG Vs access the site via the village of Ospringe on the A2. I understand that levels of pollution in the centre of the village are above the safety limit. EKR's lorries are making the situation worse.
