We believe the proposed factory will have a devastating impact on local businesses, leading to a loss of both jobs and income. No-one wants to stay in a B&B next to an enormous factory processing dead animals or get married in a village that stinks of rotting carcasses. We do not want to see the Norton Disney junction on the A46 become a danger to drivers and an accident black-spot (or hear of any more tragic deaths).
Below is a list of the businesses, immediately local or otherwise who have positioned themselves in opposition to the proposed plans to develop Villa Farm into an industrial site.

These lovely creatures are known to live in and around Hill Holt Wood which is only 250m from the proposed development site. Not only that, but 10 other species of native bat and numerous other wildlife whose existence locally will be severely impacted by having a waste processing facility as a neighbour, with its 24/7 lighting and operation interrupting establish flight paths.
