SATEP                                 SPELTHORNE AGAINST THE ECO PARK

                                                                                       STOP THE INCINERATOR                                                          

 

Together we can stop the 'Eco Park' (that isn't Eco or a Park).  

 

It's an Incinerator and Anaerobic Digester, a potentially explosive combination that has never been co-located on one site before.  The incineration technology is unproven to burn household waste.  

 

The truth?  Eco Park is an experiment and Shepperton residents will be guinea pigs.  Why?  It's all about corporate greed and the health & wealth of residents comes a poor second.

You'll thank us when your house retains its value* and your family isn't being poisoned by cancer-causing emissions.**

'Dark day for local democracy' as Surrey approves riskier Eco Park incinerator

 

March 17: Today Surrey County Council ignored local people, technical experts and even its own consultants to give the go-ahead to a high-risk waste gasifier at Charlton Lane.

 

"This is a dark day for local democracy and very disappointing news for Spelthorne.  But if Surrey think they can dump this incinerator on us, they have underestimated our sense of community and pride.  We won't give up the fight -  NOW IT'S SERIOUS."

 

Once again, we need to pull together as a community.  The next step - and our only hope of stopping this - is a Judical Review.  Surrey are banking on the fact that the people of Spelthorne don't care enough to stop this.  We know better.  

 

Here's what you can do

1. Email your local Spelthorne Borough Councillors here and demand that they support residents with a Judicial Review. There is no better way for your taxes to be spent - once the incinerator is here we will be blighted by a chimney taller than Nelson's Column belching toxic fumes over our schools and homes. And by then it will be too late.  

 

2. Email our MP Kwasi Kwarteng and ask for him to demand that this Planning Decision is 'called in' by the Secretary of State, Eric Pickles.  

 

3. Email the Surrey Councillors and tell them what you think of their ill-judged decision.

 

4. Please donate to our fighting fund - see above. We had hoped it wouldn't come to this, but we now need to start getting 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.

 

5. Spread the word.  Unbelievably, local people are still totally unaware that a huge  incinerator is about to be built on the site of the tip at Charlton Lane.  Join our Facebook group, tell your friends, family and neighbours.  Together we can stop this.

And here's the report on house prices with an incinerator in the postcode expected to drop by around 18%* - an average of £64,000** in Shepperton once work on the site begins.
