Facts and figures
I have not checked but 500 acres is a huge site, what are the using, mini racks 10U high with room to drive a truck through the gaps.
What this shows is just how much big business can do to sweet-talk politicians and planners. A small number of temporary construction jobs and then a (very) limited number of permanent is really pushing the economic benefits. Every time one of these big distribution centres or data centres comes up jobs is the big card that is used. The reality is that there are bugger all people in them, and those that are will not be that highly paid. Again, I don't know about this one but if you take the distribution centre, why the hell are they not forced to put solar roofs on them. We then have the total insanity of farmland being covered up by solar panels because the subsidies make it worthwhile.
All big businesses are doing everything possible to shaft anyone and everyone who is not part of the club. At some point the wheels will fall off and it will collapse. The trouble is that the arses in the club will all have their money and will not give a stuff, leaving the general public to pick the mess up.
