PLANNING REF 16/00080/MMFUL PARK FARM & CARDEA POO & EXCREMENT FARM. CONSULTATION OPENS GET YOUR COMMENTS IN WRITING IN BY APRIL 17th (Planning has been known to close the comments postbag early! )
Welcome to Poo Farm ..........
The Stanground Conservative Councillors clearly sat on their hands as the huge Fengate plant near the Cinema multiplex was waved through Planning, and its pretty clear not a lot is being actively done this side of the local election, to halt the progress of yet another FOUR TANK STRONG Anaerobic Digestion Plant, and a permanent gas flare pipe to light up the surrounding residential developments.
The outgoing Cabinet rushed though Fletton Quays riverside disaster and with the inbuilt majority defeated the call in. But now we have a very slender chance of stopping this latest monumental folly supported by Stanground Conservatives (true some may publicly protest, but if that's correct how on earth did FENGATE ever get through? CLUE: Who owns the land?
They had the whole of the unpopulated Fens to locate this latest sewage gobbling, gas flarepipe monstrosity but it had to be placed in the middle of a high density residential zone, with a high proportion of young families. Tanker loads of this stuff will probably pass by your door....
Just watch the price of nearby property tumble, especially the new build this side of Morrisons on a reclaimed brownfield site...just don't double spit deep dig over your garden folks! Who know what lies beneath!
The outgoing local councillor (Chair of the PCC Planning Committee) is excited about dog poo on footpaths and taken to painting stencils on the footway, but little is being done about the prospect of tanker loads of excrement being trundled past St Michaels and Heritage Park Primary Schools or meeting the sewage tankers on the road during the twice daily school run? All bottlenecked by Kings Dyke....Cushty!
The smell will be on a par with the regular end of month burn (of old oil?) by the McCains chip factory, we have to endure but instead of monthly poo smells, expect the smell of digesting burnt off excrement, sewage silage smells on a daily basis.
The best we can hope for is strong winds over the Fens, and then the regular daily 'pong' will hit Hampton Hargate, which is in direct line of fire, and on higher ground.........
