Landfill for Standish

I have received a letter about a proposed planning application for a new landfill site in Standish. The site is Stars Brow. This is just past the Severn Stars pub at the bottom of Preston Rd. It is just before you go into Coppull.

The site is a former sand quarry and landfill site, however, the owners think there is 3 years of more use in the site. They claim that it will stop flooding, however this is a green open space now and a secure site.

They plan to have 31 lorries per day going into the site Mon - Fri 7am - 6pm and 7am - 1pm on Sat. This is a huge about of traffic and will create hundreds of more lorries in Standish village. Obviously the smell will be an issue at times too.

Let me know what you think. I know one thing I guess the developers will have problems selling their new houses they want to build in Standish.

As soon as the planning application is in we will let you know.
