Please provide your comments on the environmental permit application received from East Kent Recycling Limited (Required)
I believe that the recycling plant has not been properly assessed on noise. This is based on the fact that there is planning permission for more residential housing to be built so the local population will be different and if it was already built and residents there now would permission be granted? The future of the area needs to be considered as it is rapidly growing. On the same note the area is surrounded by a site of scientific interest, SSSI, also oare nature reserve. I believe these to be sensitive sights. The amount of lorries involved on a day to day basis inside the area is not stated and therefore I do not think the noise has been properly considered. I understand that recycling needs to be done but the environment that is already there and we are trying to protect also needs consderation. I believe more exact numbers need to be given. For example it says that lorries can be working on sundays and bank holidays in exceptional circumstances. This could mean 7 day weeks. Exceptional circumstances needs to be specified. Also these extra days taken into consideration with the impact to the surrounding environment.
