HPC RECOMMENDS TO REJECT POWER PLANT

HPC sent its recommendation to request SCDC to refuse the Power Plant application. We ask SCDC to do an Environmental Impact Assessment, which gives it a status in law. We have asked SCDC to consider the application in their Planning Committee if it is not refused outright. You can find our recommendation on the Noticeboard.

The Village (population 370) is in a valley and situated on the B1116 between the A12 and Framlingham but this road runs all the way to Harleston on the Norfolk border. As the B1116 passes through Hacheston it is called ‘The Street’, the name, like other villages, was given by the Romans as Hacheston was a fairly large Roman market town. Later Its authenticity was established as it is recorded in the Domesday book of 1086. It has been a farming community for centuries and is the grain basin of England. Running parallel with the village is the river Ore which has its source in Framlingham Mere. Meandering through the countryside, it eventually flows into the Alde and then into the North Sea. Once navigable, it used to transport goods by barge.
