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:
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: email@example.com 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,
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.
