THE company wanting to build a waste recycling facility on 1.8 acres of land currently occupied by Brycelands at Jack's Hill, Graveley, has temporarily withdrawn its planning application.
Greener Recycling Solutions (GRS) says the reason behind the withdrawal is because they 'recognise the application has given rise to concern in particular with respect to transport and nuisance.'
A statement from GRS said: "Although the application is being temporarily withdrawn due to some technical issues, GRS will take the opportunity to consult with the concerned parties and wherever possible accommodate suitable controls to address their concerns.
"It is in GRS' best interest to operate the facility efficiently and effectively without giving rise to any nuisance to nearby properties and intends to act as a considerate business to its neighbours and local residents."
