Please provide your comments on the environmental permit application received from East Kent Recycling Limited (Required)
Faversham Town Council obects to this application for an environmental permit. Reasons: 1) The proposed larger lorries are too big for the access road. It would not be possible for them to pass each other on the road, which is also a footpath. 2) The access route is the Saxon Shore Way a designated long distance path used by walkers. 3) Existing light and noise pollution is unacceptable to neighbours, it cannot be increased. The proposed new buildings are taller and therefore the lights will be higher, which is not acceptable. 4) Traffic levels on surrounding roads including the A2 in Ospringe at saturation point, with existing high air pollution levels. 5) The proposed extended working hours for the site are intolerable for neighbouring properties. 6) The proposed pedestrian access across the entrance is not safe. 7) Outline Planning Permission has been given for the site at Oare Gravel Works, Ham Road. It is unacceptable for this proposed development to be approved next to 300 new houses. 8) The site is in close proximity to SSSI’s. The protection of wildlife and birds should be prioritised. 9) The extension of the site increases the risk of leakage into Faversham Creek which is not acceptable. 1
