Alistair Cameron, Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Spokesman for Tewkesbury, has written to the National Planning Casework Unit requesting that they Call-in the planning application by Grundons for the hazardous waste site at Wingmoor Farm on behalf of the Secretary of State and set up a Public Inquiry.

Alistair said: "The hazardous waste site at Wingmoor Farm receives waste from all over the country. It is therefore a planning application of national significance which should be considered through a Public Inquiry.

It is a highly controversial planning application which received over 1200 letters of objection and there are significant concerns over health and environmental issues.

I am also concerned that this is an inappropriate development in the Green Belt and that the development would last for over 20 years and would result in a huge loss of open space during that period.

In addition, I do not consider that the issue that this is a new planning application and not a request for an extension has been adequately addressed during the planning application so far."
