NEW APPLICATION FOR LIDL WAREHOUSE AT M3 J7
What is CAGE?
CAGE (Clean Air Green Environment) is a campaign led by concerned Hampshire residents in response to the plan to build a gigantic distribution and manufacturing facility, operational 24/7, in the beautiful North Hampshire Downs.
The campaign is working to:
• Fully understand the potential environmental impacts of the plans.
• Spread awareness and share our learnings with interested parties.
• Lobby key decision-makers and influencers involved with planning and the future social and environment health of our country.
• Highlight the national importance of not only preserving, but improving our clean air and green environment.
Areas of current focus include: light, water, noise and air pollution; impact on health; road safety; effects on wildlife; visual impact; ecology and the loss of farmland; flood risk and drainage; emissions the effect on global warming.

Who are we?
We are a group of UK residents, concerned about the increasing trend of rushing through planning applications for monetary profit without appropriate thought to long-term environmental impacts. We urge our country’s planners to value the nation’s clean air and green environment in a time of critical climate concern.
The CAGE campaign was launched as a response to the Newlands Development proposal for a giant distribution and manufacturing hub in the M3, J7 area.
Based in Hampshire, the group has established several teams, looking at different areas of the proposal to provide the basis of an effective campaign. We will, where necessary, seek specialist advice so that CAGE can make considered observations to people living, working and passing through the area.
