Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

A KENT OPERATOR has been granted permission to base four trucks at a new operatingcen tre in Swanley as long as it meets strict environmental conditions including a curb on night-time movements.

The firm, DM Andrews Haulage, was given 28 days to make representations about the effect of the conditions on its business.

The company's application to base the vehicles at Wilburton Yard, Swanley was heard at a Dartford public inquiry before South-Eastern and Metropolitan Traffic Commissioner Philip Brown.

Despite objections from local residents the TC granted the application because the site was technically and environmentally suitable for use as an operating centre.

However, he accepted it might cause adverse environmental effects for the company's neighbours. With this in mind the TC imposed the following environmental conditions: • The firm's trucks must not use Russett Way when leaving or approaching the site; • Operation, movement, loading and unloading will be restricted to 6am-7pm Mondays to Fridays and 6am-2pm on Saturdays, with no movements on Sundays or public holidays except in the case of emergency call-outs: • A log must be kept of all vehicle activity during emergency call-outs outside the agreed hours and this must be made available for inspection.

The TC gave the company 28 days to make representations about the effect they would have on its business.
