Elton Parish Council Strongly Object to This Application for The Following Reasons:
Noise pollution – The noise from HGV's is already extremely high and to increase this above its current level is unacceptable. We do not believe that Encirc's solution to this issue is viable. Encirc's own noise assessment concludes that increasing HGV movements will have an adverse impact.
They are proposing to address this by increasing the height of the noise barrier to 3 metres and closing the current gaps but even doing this will still mean moderate noise levels and an increase in height of the noise barrier would not alleviate the noise levels experienced by residents during the night.
