It has taken over six weeks for Hampshire County Council to count and publish all the objections received to Veolia's plans to replace the community recycling facility near Alton with a massive commercial incinerator, but we now know that a final total of 3,300 objections have been received to the proposals.
This was reported in this week's Alton and Farnham Herald newspapers, below.
Campaigners from No Wey Incinerator believe this places this planning application in the top 10 "most objected applications" across the UK in recent years.
Objections were received from two district and borough councils (East Hampshire and Waverley), two town councils (Alton and Farnham), 17 parish councils, two Members of Parliament - Damian Hinds and Jeremy Hunt, the Campaign to Protect Rural England, the South Downs National Park Authority and Natural England.
HCC will now evaluate the representations received and consider the next steps. Please follow our latest updates page, sign up to our mailing list and follow us on Facebook to stay abreast of the next steps.
