Very sorry to hear of this plan.   Please let us know if there's a petition, Dave.  But I fear it will be a losing battle.

There's an online petition on opposing the plan.

Here's the introduction:

The Government is seeking to create an additional Inland Border Facility in Guston to accommodate new custom and border controls commencing from 1 July 2021. Fields in the village of Guston, have been earmarked for this new customs checkpoint which will be sited adjacent to family homes. Local residents and our community are devastated with these plans which will be detrimental to village way of life, imposing noise, air and light pollution from the 1200 lorries that could use the facility.  Guston is a peaceful historic hamlet and an area of outstanding natural beauty and allowing a lorry clearance site in the village centre will slaughter of our way of life enabling the Government to rob community privacy and our residents entitlement to live peacefully.

And here is the link to the petition:

I've never liked the pushiness of, but I signed the petition anyway. Needs must!
