‘Business park has turned into a dump’
MARGARET PRYKE, right, who has been campaigning for action since 2000, said: “They (the authorities) have known about this problem for eight years.
“They have dragged their feet and they only started moving when I took my petition to the European Parliament in 2003.
“That’s four years ago and if they still haven’t made any sort of decision, it’s going to be another four years, and there will be treble the amount of lorries by then.
“My own view, and the view of other people I have spoken to, is that if the council wanted the land for building houses, it wouldn’t matter to them if it was greenfield or brownfield, they would use it.
“I feel that this problem with lorries has become so great that they ought to think positively about getting a lorry park, regardless of whether we have to lose yet another field.
“Residents in South Willesborough were promised a prestigious business park, but there is nothing prestigious about Orbital Park – it’s just a great big stinking dump.”
