Richard Owen started this petition to Anglesey Council Councilors and

Further to the application above, please could you consider signing this petition for it to presented to the planning committee and for it to be recommended for Refusal. I and many of my neighbors would like for you to support for this application to be denied.

A very brief background to this subject is all of last year the campsite was operating on a temporary basis which was meant to be no longer than 28 days. They operated well in excess of 60 days and they also allowed camper vans in which was not permitted.

As I live directly opposite the field in question (I live next door to Rushmead) I had a major issue every day last summer with the camper vans and vehicles turning around in my entrance and screwing up the stone on my drive, one broke my post box. I tried to place large logs across my entrance to prevent this, however these logs tended to go missing, I can only assume for the camp fires that I saw on occasions in the field. There were between 20-30 tents and some campers here per evening on a regular basis which was ridiculous to see in an ANOB, almost looked Glastonbury like.!!

The influx of vehicles on our country lanes was immense and was very dangerous for the local children playing which range from 5 to 12 years old in the area.

The noise pollution all day, and running into 1-2am in the morning from groups of 18-30 year olds drinking until early hours, shouting, laughing, and swearing was ridiculous. This was affecting my sleep and had a serious effect on my work, and as I am freelance, my income is important to me..

Finally, the rubbish and littering and worst still the urinating against the hedgerow was evident at times.

There are plenty of local camping sites within a mile or two to this agricultural land, The Marram Grass is immediately next door and their sister campsite on Beach Road in Newborough. The application refers to land adjacent to Rushmead, it is in fact “Land adjoining the Marram Grass” there is a very small single track country lane between the land of application and Rushmead, myself in Annan and Pen Bont my other neighbor.

There is absolutely no benefit to approving this application for the area we all live in and love, and will cause major disruption and open a gateway to ruining the area through turning it into a commercial playground rather than an area where thousands come and visit each year for the natural beauty which it represents.

Having started discussing this with some local residents it appears they too and now afraid to go out when its dark as this land surrounds a number of local houses, the noise and shouting puts fear in them going outdoors. Some have advised me of Rats being present due to the influx of food being discharged over the hedges. following barbecues and camp fires.

Please support us, to keep our community tranquil and an area of natural outstanding beauty.
