No Wey Incinerator has received bumper coverage in many national newspapers today of the community's fight against Veolia's plans to replace a recycling centre with a massive commercial incinerator, in the heart of the rural Wey Valley near Alton.
Celebrity TV gardener Alan Titchmarsh was quoted supporting the campaign, but the news articles also focussed on the threat to rural businesses, including West End Flower Farm, who run a successful restaurant and events business and have farmed their land for a century, and would be only a few hundred yards away from the proposed development.
Articles were published in at least five national newspapers, including:
Daily Mirror - "Titchmarsh: Stop the Sincinerator"
Daily Telegraph - "Titchmarsh 'saddened' by towering South Downs incinerator"
The Sun - "TV Alan's fury over a plant... for waste"
