Representation regarding the proposal to use Oulton Airfield as the main storage/operating compound for the project as follows:

The inappropriateness of the scale of this proposal and its activities concentrated in this location when other options had been previously identified.

The serious inadequacies of the immediate road network to cope with such large-scale activities. Local roads are predominantly very narrow, single-track country lanes with numerous very tight bends, small humpbacked bridges and fragile surfaces which can barely cope with current domestic traffic. The only road of any substance in the area is the B1149 and even that has many obstacles and shortcomings.

Serious concerns and strong objection to any proposal which would bring traffic through Oulton Street from either direction. The roads (The Street and New Road) are not able to cope with lorries or large heavy vehicles. There are no footpaths on either side of the roads. Additionally, many houses have no front gardens and their external walls abut the road. Heavy traffic passing through the village would be extremely dangerous and damaging for local residents and other road users resulting in a very serious and unacceptable health and safety risk. This would be seriously detrimental to the health and wellbeing of the residents of Oulton Street and Oulton village.
