AONB under industrial planning siege

Whilst WBAGI are very focussed on opposing the Grundon waste incinerator proposal we also have to be aware and consider the implications of any other industrial planning applications that are being sought in the local area, within the AONB. These could potentially set a very dangerous precedent, and we all know that exceptional circumstances have to be demonstrated for any development in the AONB. And close to WBAGI’s heart is protecting the AONB from inappropriate development.
