Meeting to discuss the proposed incinerator

Post  richardbembridge on Sat Oct 03, 2009 4:08 am

Henry Fanshawe School
Green Lane
Dronfield

Monday 5th October 7pm

Dr Paul Connett, world-renowned expert on the dangers of incinerator technology, is flying in from the USA to brief local residents on the proposed Cyclamax plans.

Also featuring on Radio Hallam during the day, and on Radio Sheffield Breakfast Show live.

Later in the week, Derbyshire County Council meet with the Developer and Chesterfield Against Incineration in a pre-planning meeting. This is at Matlock at 2pm on Friday.

The final decision will be made sometime in October/November, so this really may be your last chance to object.

More details on how to object on website above.

Edit: this has genuine health implications for Dronfield residents and needs to be objected to in the strongest possible terms.

Planning meeting: Fri Oct 9th, 2pm, County Hall, Matlock

Thanks to all that turned up to Henry Fanshawe School recently. Professor Connett's presentation was both informative and worrying.

We must now act as a community.

The only real way to stop this incinerator is to lobby your local elected representatives.

This means your Dronfield Councillors, your NEDDC Councillors, your MP, and most importantly, your Derbyshire County Councillors - for it is this latter group that will be making a decision on our future.

Dronfield's County Councillors are John and Sue Allsop of 18 Green Lane. Write to them and tell them just how unhappy you are with the proposals. Interestingly, John Allsop is "Cabinet Member for Recycling and Technology" on the county council, and so he should have a special interest in the proposals to build an incinerator which will burn the majority of our waste without recycling it at all.

Here are the full contact details for John and Sue:

18 Green Lane
Dronfield
Derbyshire
S18 2LZ

john.allsop@derbyshire.gov.uk
sue.allsop@derbyshire.gov.uk

Finally, there is a pre-planning meeting this Friday, Oct 9th, 2pm at County Hall, Matlock.

The planning department is meeting with both Cyclamax (the incinerators) and Chesterfield Against Incineration (the protestors). This meeting will help the planners shape their decision that will be made formal within 6-8 weeks. This is our last chance to make ourselves heard.

Please do everything you can to attend this meeting - make yourselves seen and heard - if the Councillors realise the strength of public feeling, and that their jobs are on the line (we pay their salaries after all), then they may decide that the incinerator proposals are a bad idea.

Tomorrow (Friday), 2pm Matlock County Hall, is your last chance to let the planners and council know the true depth of feeling.

Please do all you can to be there.

Incinerator

This is very worrying, don't think someone else will stop it! if you don't want it here apparently Dronfield affected due to the North easterly prevailing wind ACT NOW
we all live in a beautiful area great schools parks and close knit community, my kids school teaches Re use Reduce Recycle so why should we let someone burn toxic waste above their heads.
Our kids can't speak out but we can

Look at the info on it and make your own mind the group Chesterfield against Incineration have lots of informative info and have given loads of time and effort into stopping this, not just for the health affects but the number of HGV's going to the site, economic affects and just what having as INCINERATOR says about us.


PLEASE PLEASE let your voice be heard

Incinerator

As you say, this is worrying. The prime consideration is obviously one of public health, particularly for the young and growing, but it will have implications for many other spheres, including the housing market. We are disturbed by this news as it casts a shadow over our plan to move to Dronfield and we will support actions being taken against the proposal.
An example of a chimney fall-out cone in action can sometimes be seen in this area. The plume from Fawley stack (Southampton) can be observed extending over W. Sussex under the prevailing wind.

rogerb - this is exactly one of the arguments we are putting to the planning committee - this proposal will cost the area a lot more than we gain from it. Economically it simply does not make sense.

Can I suggest you write a letter to kevin.finn@derbyshire.gov.uk outlining your concerns and the possible consequences of this proposal being passed? There are other things you can do - and these are listed on www.againstincineration.org.uk

Thanks.
