Devastating impact of incinerator to local farmers covered on BBC Radio

BBC Radio Solent have today featured interviews with farmers Mat Miles from Hawbridge Farm, and Will Butler from West End Farm, both of whom will be significantly negatively affected by Veolia's proposals to build a massive commercial incinerator in the rural Wey Valley near Alton.

Mat and Will were interviewed by the BBC and talked about the necessary diversification of their farming businesses to include weddings, restaurants, and festivals, and how the industrialisation of the rural landscape will devastate their rural enterprises.

The BBC also had an interview with Ben Stanberry, speaking on behalf of the No Wey Incinerator Action Group, explaining why this proposal is so unacceptable to the over 5,000 residents and businesses who have made formal objections to the plans.
