It’s noted that the InExcess Planning application has been withdrawn. Please see the Comment below from Carl Chambers, Managing Director of In-Excess UK Ltd.
The following is a helpful note from Sam Goold, re Planning Application 16/08573/FUL
In case you were not aware, the in-Excess storage facility has lodged a retrospective planning application for a huge turning circle on the site. This will enable larger lorries to turn in the woods and therefore use our village roads (including Farley and Pitton). The weight of objection from the last application is the only hope that we can have this application rejected, so please would you all kindly consider lodging an objection: You don’t need to write much if you would prefer – just filing the objection is key to any success in this.
Most worryingly is the lack of respect for the local countryside and the local residents as the ancient woodland has been contaminated by asbestos waste (not to mention the ugly nature of the work being carried out).
Any support would be gratefuly received.

Just for reference as it may not show on the website for a few days, please do use any of my objection if it helps (or there are some others already on line):
I OBJECT to this retrospective application which has been submitted to fall under the radar of the local villagers. A huge turning circle has already been built to enable large, over-sized vehicles to enter the site. As already opposed by local residents last year, these vehicles are not suitable on our small, narrow, deteriorating lanes. These lorries pose a risk to our countryside and more worryingly to the residents themselves as there are no footpaths in the area. There are already reported incidents of families and horses being put in danger by these huge lorries which are already using our lanes.
The addition of concrete hardstanding to provide turning circle for vehicles (outside of the cartilage of the existing business), galvanised steel security fence (7.5 ft high and bright silver), lamp posts (which are very bright) and gate does not respect or protect the ancient woodland that have ALREADY BEEN POLLUTED AND DESTROYED. The defined clear line and proposed grass bunds between business and the surrounding ancient woods are filled with builders waste and broken asbestos sheets – the Environment agency is fully aware of this contamination.
Trees have been felled without license and builders rubble deposited in the woods.
This application has blatantly lied under points 13. Biodiversity and Geological Conservation & 15. Trees and Hedges.
Furthermore, further to the original (rejected) planning application:
- Three additional barns have been clad with no permission.
- The two small cottages are now one big house, which is different in size and materials from the original planning application
