Stretford and Urmston MP slams High Court biomass decision
1:40pm Monday 24th February 2014 in News
STRETFORD and Urmston MP Kate Green has expressed her disappointment that the High Court has rejected Trafford Council’s legal challenge against the Barton Renewable Energy Plant.
Ms Green said: "I know that many people living in Urmston, Flixton and Davyhulme will be extremely disappointed that the High Court has rejected the council's challenge to the Barton Renewable Energy Plant. They will be very angry that the plant is allowed to go ahead, and I share their disappointment.
"Local people could not have made their opposition to this plant clearer, yet the Government and the High Court has completely disregarded their views.
“Air quality standards in the area are already being breached, and the last thing we need is for them to get even worse. I'll be watching our air quality levels in Trafford like a hawk, and the Environment Agency must guarantee it will do so too.”
