The first of 2000 signatures have been presented to Aylesbury Vale District Council today - against plans for a mega-dairy near Aylesbury.

ARLA Foods want to spend £150m for a new facility at Aston Clinton with what would be world's first milk-processing plant dealing with 1 BILLION litres of milk.

Nigel Hayward from protest group ACRID told mix96, the signatures collected already is just the tip of iceberg "The anger shown at the meeting last week by so many people not knowing about the size of the development and the impact on the local population and the transport (infrastructure).. means we are expected to now quadruple the number of people signing up to oppose the application, by the end of the week".

Hear Nigel's full interiew here:-

 

ARLA say if they are given planning permission, they WILL try to reduce congestion on the roads with local improvements and say they'll reduce congestion on the roads with workers at the site being offered a new bus service.
