I want to protest in the strongest possible terms about the location of the proposed lorry interchange on the old A45 At Levington. The Planning Inspectorate recently rejected an application for a lorry park at Innocence farm. The location of this ‘temporary’ interchange on the old A 45 is even less appropriate. No provision has been made to improve the junction of the A1156 with the old A45, and there will be a considerable danger to traffic over the period of operation of the site. I also consider it is likely the proposal stems from a desire by East Suffolk council to develop the currently Greenfield strip of land between Ipswich and Felixstowe running along the path of the A 14. It will clearly be easier to obtain planning permission on a brownfield site as regards the current Greenfield. The location of this lorry interchange at This site is unsuitable and should be refused. More appropriate sites are available on the A 12 northbound. Location on the A 12 northbound would be much more appropriate because it would result in far fewer overall lorry movements, reversals etc.
