Sacha Gosine started this petition to The British Government

A new Statutory Instrument was laid before parliament on Thursday 5th September and is due to become law on Monday 9th September.  This will effectively allow the government to temporarily (until 31st December 2020) use car park D at Ebbsfleet International Station as a customs checkpoint and lorry park as part of its emergency Brexit preparations.  It will allow up to 393 goods vehicles to be on site at any time.  This order has been made by central government, without any direct involvement of local councils.  The main impact of this would be extra traffic in and around Ebbsfleet, Swanscombe and Greenhithe. There will be a dramatic increase in noise and air pollution, for example a HGV produces over 5kg of CO2 per hour at idle. That's more than 1965kg of CO2 per hour for a full car park and 47160kg of CO2 PER DAY! We are currently in a Climate Emergency!

As residents of Ebbsfleet, Swanscombe and Greenhithe we are extremely unhappy by this sudden move by the current British Government and fully and whole heartedly reject this law which is to come into effect on Monday 9th September
