Assembly decision should not stand
I KNOW Barkway well, having lived there for 16 years and I still own an acre of ground at Buckland Road, Barkway. From my experience where I have now lived for more than 20 years, at Kneesworth, if the site has a resident warden as does the one opposite
I KNOW Barkway well, having lived there for 16 years and I still own an acre of ground at Buckland Road, Barkway.
From my experience where I have now lived for more than 20 years, at Kneesworth, if the site has a resident warden as does the one opposite Bassingbourn Barracks, there is no problem at all.
The notorious Mettle Hill site, at Meldreth, had no resident management and was an absolute disaster.
Regardless of any location, unless proper management is imposed together with a strict policy about disposal of rubbish, such a site should be fiercely opposed.
The imposition of any site by the East of England Regional Assembly should have no standing in law in any case as that body is not democratically elected and should not be making any decisions on behalf of the electorate.
Where such sites are proposed on the edge of settled villages they should be subject to the same planning procedure as they would be for any private individual.
