This week's Alton Herald highlights the massive support for the No Wey Incinerator campaign, with the number of planning objections sent to Hampshire County Council to Veolia's planned incinerator now over 2,000 and still rising.
Six weeks after the consultation period closed, HCC are working their way through the backlog of objections to be posted on their planning portal, so the final number of objections may not be known for some time.
The article also highlights the conclusion of the consultant's report prepared for No Wey Incinerator which stated "there is no justification for an ERF in this location and the harm arising from its construction would significantly and demonstrably outweigh any benefits. Had the applicant undertaken an assessment of alternative sites, it is hard to imagine that this site would even make it to the shortlist". You can read the full report from the consultants on our Latest Updates page.
