 FOODARI. Knockwood Lane, Molash. Application 16/01013/AS.

This company is now seeking to change conditions imposed on them regarding the number of HGV movements to and from their warehouse in this very narrow country lane. They want to increase the number in total from 30 to 80 HGV movements per week and also include Saturdays. Foodari have been breaking the conditions for 2 years with no enforcement by ABC. They have shirked their duty as a guardian of local residents. Foodari choose to ignore the conditions and the very strong feelings from residents who continually are distressed by all of the vehicle (HGV and Foodari vans) movements in Knockwood Lane at all hours of day and night. This site is completely the wrong one for this company and they could easily move to a site which would be much more in keeping with the needs. But of course they choose not to and keep ignoring the conditions!

You can see all the objections on the ABC website and leave yours there as well. Be quick, end of August 2016 is the deadline.                                                                                                                                              *****
