Plans to build the worlds largest milk-producing site at Aston Clinton have been critisised by experts.

Local campaign group Aylesbury Chilterns Resistance To Inappropriate Development, or ACRID for short, commissioned the report to back up their arguments against the proposals. It found the plans lack detail and clarity on how transport, the environment, employment and the local economy would be affected.

Clive Carlile, a member of ACRID, told us if the plans went ahead 1000 lorries a day would pass through the area. He hopes the findings will affect the District Council's decision:

''The resultant affect of traffic in this area of Aylesbury is absolutely horrific, and it's that that we needed to have absolutely established and indeed be able to confirm that when they assess this application they have to take this into account.''

Critics have said before that they're worried about the number of lorries going to and from the site, something Arla say they've  taken that on board and as a result will pay for new traffic lights and other measures:

"Part of the planning application will be looking to improve the roundabouts on Oakfield Road and King Edward Avenue and Bedgrove and Broughton Lane. Around 50% of the vehicles will travel on the A41 to and from London, the remaining vehicles will travel on 3 or 4 strategic routes, so we're keeping away from small villages"

A meeting's taking place tonight where you can get more information about the campaign against the Dairy. It starts at 8pm at Chiltern Archery Club, Buckland Village. To see the ACRID campaign group's website click here.
