A major 100+ hectare development site at Innocense Farm, Trimley St Martin, has been rejected by the Planning Inspectorate following the intervention of Planning Direct.

The site was included in the final version of East Suffolk Councils Local Plan and associated with growth at the Port of Felixstowe.

Following instruction from campaigning group ‘KatKag’ (Kirton and Trimleys Community Action Group) Planning Direct’s Andrew Cann wrote a detailed case demonstrating that the virgin land was not required for development and the the promoters, advisors and councils case was flawed and no based on an understanding of the logistics business. Andrew Cann, a member of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, proved that the land would not be used for entrepôt or logistics use due to it’s location but would be unnecessary employment land in an area of rural beauty.
