The Challenge

This is not a “nimby” response – we are pro-agriculture and pro-farming and indeed we live the modern farming year in this village and are part of the cycle of activity.

Ben Burgess Ltd’s desire for a new site is not contested but their proposed site on farmland is simply in the wrong place.

 The Parish Council and the people of Swainsthorpe call upon the South Norfolk District Council to protect our village and the users of the A140.

We do not intend to give up this challenge to our environment easily and we will seek the support of every agency and organisation to scrutinise this proposal and we will continue to campaign against this highly unsuitable development.
