  1. MK on Waste Incinerator

    WELL DONE ST DENNIS!: http://mebyonkernow.blogspot.com/2008/09/well-done-st-dennis.html

    St Dennis was the place to be on Wednesday night at the County Council-sponsored Public Meeting to discuss the proposed waste incinerator. Over 800 people attended the meeting and crowded into a massive marquee in the village.

    The county councillors certainly found out the views of local people and many from further afield – there was a range of fantastic speeches which, one after another, nailed the lie that Cornwall needs a single massive incinerator to be imposed on the people of St Dennis and the China Clay Area. Not in line with up-to-date planning policies … not an environmental solution … unsafe … a carbuncle … expensive … likely to undermine recycling … the list of reasons to refuse the application was endless.

    The representatives from SITA really had no answers.

    I was pleased to be able to present the democratically agreed view of Restormel Borough Council to the meeting as part of a double-act with Deputy Mayor Jenny Mason. It was a privilege to be able to speak up and be part of the fight against this inappropriate proposal.

    Now must be the time that Cornwall Cornwall Council finally sees sense and looks to come up with a more decentralised and sustainable way to deal with Cornwall’s waste.

    Well done St Dennis.
