BRACKLEY: A CHICKEN processing plant has said its request for vehicle restrictions to be relaxed does not constitute an increase in activity.
Last week the Advertiser reported on an application by the Faccenda Group to keep more trailers at its site on the Buckingham Road Industrial Estate as well as the scrapping of rules which prevent lorries coming and going between 8pm and 6am.
Nearby residents blame the plant for putrid smells which blight the area and feared the changes would see a return of the smells after a relatively stench free summer.
A Faccenda spokesman said the changes would help manage vehicles movements and that they were not associated with an new contract. He added “This does not represent an increase in our business in terms of the number of birds we process, nor in the number of vehicle movements at our site.”
