Stradbroke Parish Council objects to the site and the use in terms of the lack of assessment of the impact on the Made Stradbroke Neighbourhood Plan as the majority of traffic for the airfield will need to pass along the evidenced pinch point in the plan and previously provided evidence that supports the capacity of the village to develop a substantial number of homes. This is at risk from the wider proposals that were and are integral to the factory at Eye. (The Plan and all supporting documents for the Stradbroke Neighbourhood Plan can be viewed at: https://www.stradbrokepc.org/neighbourhood-plan-documents )

The site has not been properly assessed and there has been a lack of due process in relation to the grant of planning for the poultry processing plant. This is detailed in correspondence of 19-25 September with MSDC DM team (see attached documents).
The EIA scoping for the site was withdrawn and the cumulative impact of the factory on the highway network was not considered. However the highway network was a material consideration in the called in application DC/19/01673.

To be clear Stradbroke Parish Council is NOT objecting in principle to the type of factory and use but to the lack of due process in appraising the site for this use and the lack of an EIA. We say this Local Plan process cannot retrospectively legitimise an illegitimate process.
The further point is that the airfield measured site is stated to be 63 ha, whereas the airfield site is considerably larger than this at 135 ha. The new factory was consented into the countryside without any reasoning given in the officer report and again the plan process should not simply regularise irregularities, the plan needs to scrutinise the policy in view of what has taken place historically and policies reviewed accordingly. This is because there is a risk of setting a precedent of encroachment into countryside without good reason and if that has already occurred the policy written retrospectively is weakened in effectiveness by the exception to the rule, retrofitting policy is not a sound basis of plan making.
Stradbroke Parish Council will also review all evidence at plan submission stage including the list of specific developments (as per list attached) which are directly related to the Eye airfield factory.
