Reasons to object (“material considerations”)

A material consideration is a matter that should be taken into account in deciding a planning application and can include (but are not limited to):    

  • Government policy (including The National Planning Policy Framework) 
  • Proposals in the Development Plan (i.e. the Central Lincolnshire Local Plan and the County Minerals and Waste Plan)
  • Inappropriate use of greenfield site
  • Nature & wildlife (inc. bats) conservation 
  • Heritage/ archaeological concerns 
  • Effect on listed building/ conservation area
  • Layout and density of building
  • Design, appearance and materials
  • Highway safety
  • Noise 

Please note that issues such as loss of view, or negative effect on the value of properties are not material considerations and should not be cited. 

Please think about, and express in your objection,  why it matters to you, your community and the businesses in the area that the planning application for this animal rendering factory should be refused. 

Nobody in the local area to Villa Farm wishes our beautiful environment to be ruined by the building of a rendering plant. To fight the planning application the community needs advice and assistance which inevitably incurs costs. We want to know we are approaching the campaign in a professional and credible manner to ensure we do everything possible to achieve a successful outcome.  A dedicated campaign bank account was opened and funds donated (approx £3,000) during the first campaign all went there. Legal and professional advice, when needed, will cost considerably more.

Now that the planning application has been re-submitted we must make a united effort to ensure that Lincoln Proteins’ application is not successful; with the help of local people, we will do everything possible to keep our environment as we want it.  It might be necessary to crowd fund again in the future.
