CALLING ALL RESIDENTS...HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO DO!!!
Our fight to stop the Eco Park incinerator at Charlton Lane continues.
All you need to do is 1.2.3.
But first you need to know this: more evidence is emerging that shows incinerators CANNOT be guaranteed to be safe because of the particulate matter (PM10s and PM2.5s in emissions) which is very difficult to filter out. Once particulate matter enters your body it never leaves, causing illness and in some cases death.
Now you need to:
1. Object to the Surrey Planning Committee by 23 September. Eco Park is back up for determination on 24 September, and Surrey Council want to rubber stamp the planning application. But there is now a very strong case against building an emissions-spewing incinerator in the heart of an Air Quality Management Area - our air quality is getting worse! Here's why (use these in your personalised objection):
(i). Spelthorne Borough Council has published air quality info for 2013, which shows the position has worsened since 2012, notably in Shepperton & Sunbury. An incinerator will make matters much worse.
(ii). Public Health England issued the 'Estimated local mortality burdens associated with particulate air pollution'. Spelthorne is 11th from bottom across the whole country for the highly toxic PM2.5. Emissions from the incinerator will include PM2.5s.
Donate to our fighting fund. We had hoped it wouldn't come to this, but we have now had to get lawyers involved. Which costs. We have a great case but we need your support and every penny raised will be used to fight the incinerator.
