Power Station development and its impact on West Leake


Tom Barton, Clerk of the Parish meeting issued the following statement :

"This is a huge application - 250 acres of buildings up to 40m high, creating over 7,000 jobs, making it larger that the EMG scheme next to the airport.

The effects on West Leake and the surrounding area are massive and I have been asked to emphasise this to all residents. In particular the transport assessments that highlight the increases in traffic that will make "crossing the road more difficult" and describe the impact on Main Street and Dark Lane as "significant". Not even the A453, M1, A50, A6 or side roads near the site are expected to have this level of change. There could be a 6,000 people commuting to the site by car and our roads cannot cope with that.
