Viewpoints tour before incinerator decision

Hampshire County Councillors visited a number of viewpoints around the proposed site of Veolia's giant commercial incinerator in the rural Wey Valley, on Monday 7th February, while it was also announced that the planning application will be decided by HCC's Regulatory Committee on Wednesday 23rd February in Winchester.


The viewpoint visit occurred as a result of pressure from the No Wey Incinerator Action Group, highlighting the need for councillors to understand the potential visual impact of this industrial development in a rural environment, as this should be part of any site visit but did not occur when councillors visited the Alton site in July 2021.

The No Wey Incinerator team have been preparing for the committee meeting for many months and have a strong line-up of speakers to put forward our position that the incinerator should be refused.
