The plan to build a mass burn waste incinerator in the corner of a country park in one of the most highly populated areas of the country is an act of environmental vandalism that will cause suffering and illness for generations to come.
Air pollution kills about 200,000 people a year in this country. It is a simple fact that burning rubbish for the next 25 years will increase pollution and this will result in more people dying.
The poisons that come out of the 311 foot chimneys build up in the body over time and there is no way to get rid of them - unless you are a woman who will pass on these toxins to her children, resulting in increased infant mortality, birth defects, restricted lung development
Air pollution is a major contributory factor in causing asthma.
These are facts that are being ignored simply to make money.
We have been trying to stop this incinerator from being built for over 4 years now and it has reached the stage where we will have to challenge it in the courts.
The final plans will be submitted at the end of January and we will then have 6 weeks to get our legal case to the judge, however, this first stage of the legal process will cost us about £10,000 (and for full judicial review it will be about £35,000 in total).
We desperately need your help in raising the profile of our campaign because the councils involved have done their best to keep this quiet.
Please can you help us?
Please sign our petition and if possible donate to our legal challenge.
Thank you so much
