From Allen Ensby

Representation

I object to this proposal on several grounds, examples of which (but are not restricted to)
Destruction of wildlife habitat
Increased traffic through rural villages
Noise created by 24x7 operation
Light pollution through night time operation
DIRFT is not far away and serves the same area and has plenty of scope for expansion for the next 10 years
Potential increase in local crime as seen byt areas around DIRFT
Increase in air pollution when we are struggling to meet EU guidlines on the matter
