Thanks waterbutts and summerwine for your comments. One, of many reasons, we don't want this development to go ahead, is that within a few miles there are two other sites, not compost, which emit pungent smells and release bioaerosols into the air which damage health. The other sites are not particularly old but rumour has it that 'they' want to close the other compost sites as they are on smaller sites than the one in Ashington. The proposed site here is larger and has room for expansion.
If this scheme is allowed to go ahead, our local RHS will no longer hold it's annual show as no-one will have an allotment to work on or want to be in their garden.
