Proposals to build a green composting site in countryside near Eastry would be a blot on the landscape, say campaigners fighting the plan.

Protesters are also complaining that the scheme would create noise and unpleasant smells, as well as traffic problems in narrow access lanes.

Lord and Lady Pender, from Tilmanstone, have already written to the county council, also claiming the "scale and magnitude of the industrial proposal" would be an eyesore.

They said they vehemently opposed the plan, which they described as a large-scale commercial enterprise.

Little Mongeham Limited, based near Deal, wants to built the composting plant for business and local authorities in the Thanet and Dover district areas, as well as use the end product on its own farmed land.

According to its planning application, the proposals on land at Upper Venson Farm would "assist the recycling effort, reduce travel cost and environmental damage caused by transporting green waste materials and the resultant compost over large distances."
