Seriously, what were Aggregate Industries and its consultants SLR thinking?

When, as a way of dealing with the water problems that would be created by quarrying Straitgate Farm, they proposed this?
The provision of water storage along the [eastern] boundaries of the site, to mitigate flooding and maintain groundwater flow, also offers the opportunity to create a priority wetland habitat and therefore enhance the ecology of the area.
Obviously they weren't thinking anything about Exeter Airport, anything about planes and people flying a few hundred feet overhead about to land on Runway 26, or anything about birdstrike.
