Lost Landscape of Heroes

To Whom it May Concern

About the Project

The “Lost Landscape of Heroes” project organised by the Landscape Heritage Research
Foundation, is a part of the Isle of Axholme and Hadfield Chase Landscape. The project is
about working with local people to re-discover a lost heritage of military landscapes in the
area. The Isle played a part in all major conflicts in the 20th Century with the significant
features from WW2 being particularly obvious. With many of these remains being forgotten
and some now very much at risk, much of the military history and heritage is in danger of
being lost completely. Alongside the fieldwork and archival research being undertaken by
the project volunteers, it sets out to capture memories of the people and their experiences
before they too are lost and to record the heritage which remains.

Oral Histories & Reminiscences — ‘I Remember When …’

The memories of local people are a valuable resource. We need to record these memories
before they are lost to current research and future generations. We have a team of trained
volunteers to help record these memories, compiling them into a unique archive of local
history from the viewpoint of those who have lived there – in their own words.

We are looking for people who wish to share their memories along with any photographs,
documents or other memorabilia, with the project. For anyone who wishes to write their
memories, please fill in one of our ‘I Remember When …’ forms. We will use this information as a basis for our Project Discovery Day in March 2019. The information will also be lodged with archives locally.

Waste Planning Consultation

Andrew Percy MP
HOUSE OF COMMONS
LONDON SWIA OAA

5 December 2018

Re: Planning Consultation for the Old Peat Works at Reading Gate Swinefleet, DN14 SDT
A number of residents in Eastoft and Luddington have raised concerns about the application by 4R Group for an organic waste recycling plant at the above address. Even though it is in the East Riding, Eastoft and Luddington are two of the closest communities to the site and I thought residents might like to be informed about it.

I have today been informed that a planning application has now been submitted by 4R and details are viewable on East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s planning website:

www.eastriding.gov.uk/planning

You can find the planning application by entering Public Access and searching reference number: 18/03711/CM

You are now able to submit any views you might have about the application to the Public Access website.

Alternatively, you can send them in via email to: beverley.dc@eastriding.gov.uk or by post. If you prefer to write in, please address your letter to:

Planning and Development Management Team,

East Riding of Yorkshire
Council, County Hall,
Cross Street,
Beverley, HU17 98A.

When submitting your comments, please remember to include your name, address and quote the planning application reference number.
I have strong concerns about the impact the operation would have locally, particularly from a transport point of view, and I have submitted my own objection letter today. When submitting your comments, it is important to focus on aspects of the operation which would be unacceptable on planning grounds such as: highway and traffic concerns, visual impact, and noise and environmental concerns.
As our MP, I have no formal role in the determination of planning applications or appeals. Indeed, MPs are not even formally consulted on such matters. My comments on this application will receive the same weight as any other local person’s and that is why it is vital residents make their views known.

As ever, if you have any further questions about this please do not hesitate to contact me or my office.

Yours sincerely,
Andrew Percy MP
