The following letter was sent to Swinefleet residents
13 August 2018
I am writing to you today to let you know that I am aware of the concerns in the Swinefleet community following the news that the 4R Group had submitted a pre-planning application to the East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) for the Swinefleet Peat Works.
I fully understand that residents are feeling anxious about this and I have been in regular contact with ERYC about this matter. I understand that up to now there has been no planning application submitted -previously the 4R Group had submitted a pre-planning application and the contents of this are confidential between 4R and the ERYC planning department.
If and when any planning application is submitted to ERYC, the application will be advertised and become visible on the ERYC Planning Portal.
It is at this stage when residents will be able to comment and object either online or in writing to the Council.
If you prefer to write, please address your letter (including the planning application number and your contact details) to:
Planning and Development Management Team
East Riding of Yorkshire
Council County Hall,
Beverley HU17 9BA
Online the planning portal can be accessed via:
It may be of interest to be aware that a petition counts as 1 objection only and is not counted by the number of signatories collected. I will continue to monitor this situation closely and I share your concerns about the planning application for the Peat Works.
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me or my office.
Andrew Percy MP
