** HCC opposes proposed 90metre Waste Incinerator Plant in Blantyre **
See planning Application (HM/17/0260) for a huge 90m Waste Incinerator Plant on Whistleberry Road, Blantyre
HCC have already objected to this unwanted development due to feedback from the community at a public meeting and we need to make you aware of the impacts:-
This huge plant is only a few miles from Cambuslang East community
The emissions funnel will be 90m tall, 50% higher than the County Buildings
The emissions impact will reach a 6 mile radius distance
Modern incinerators produce harmful toxic fly ash
It’s a venture capital investment project with no ECO/environmental advantages (only for profit).
Huge lorries will come from all over the UK and the site will only employ approx. 20 people.
The incinerator will have to go into Home Reports for those selling their homes nearby.
Cambuslang’s pollution levels are already unacceptably due to high volume car and nearby motorway traffic, existing waste incinerators at nearby Dalmarnock (Polmadie) and Coatbridge.
Please object NOW to the proposed waste incinerator. Blantyre Community Council have made this easy to do. You can either:
1. Sign the petition and share with your friends - Petition
2. Print, sign & post the objection letter - Objection letter
Please make your voice heard!
