This group has been set up to ensure everyone is aware of the potential threat of a proposed waste hub in Swinefleet, Crowle, Eastoft & surrounding villages at the Old Peatworks .
An entity called 4R propose to transport in and process human sewage, creating immense carbon footprint given it is coming from hundreds of miles.
There is no local demand for this highly controversial, toxic & failed waste produce.
Planning has been declined and 4R have lost an appeal on very narrow grounds, hence we must remain vigilant.
Closing date for objections 17th April 2020
Change of use of land and buildings to a recycling facility including erection of tanks and containment bays for bio solids treatment, waste treatment and waste storage facility with the final product used as soil improvers and fertiliser replacement (ADDITIONAL DRAINAGE INFORMATION)

The following is from the Keep Me Rural facebook page.
As you will note from prior posts, our nemesis 4r; have appealed the Planning decline, see attached.
As also noted by such as Vin, there is nothing really new in here other than they appear to propose to move more trucks up through Crowle & Eastoft, thinking that will dampen opposition.
They also note that ERYC Planning committee hearing was chaotic & biased.
They still haven’t explained who will pay £3mn to fix up Readingate, as opposed to the paltry £5k they are offering;
They claim they are an experienced, respected operator (apart from when they got convicted in Carlisle!);
They claim they are/have worked with the local community and want to be good neighbours (bit untrue that);
They still think this harebrained Traffic Management Plan cooked up by ER will work;
Hopefully AP can have this called up again by Minister, thus taking decision out of local hands. We don’t think we get any inputs but are carefully studying.
Might be time before the next Planning hearing to organise a noisy, but legal demo in the three villages, get Look North out.
Don’t be disheartened, this lot are chancers and not that good
