The Breathe Clean Air Group 'disappointed' by go-ahead for plant at Lostock Gralam
11:30am Thursday 11th October 2012 in News
CAMPAIGNERS in Trafford have expressed their concern, after the Government gave the go-ahead to a controversial power plant in Northwich.
Proposals to build a sustainable energy plant in Lostock Gralam were approved last Tuesday, following a five-week public inquiry last autumn.
The Breathe Clean Air Group - BCAG – is campaigning to stop a similar plant being built by Peel Energy in Davyhulme.
It held a packed public meeting last Monday, which was attended by members of the Cheshire Anti-Incinerator Network (CHAIN).
Pete Kilvert, chairman of BCAG, said: "BCAG is extremely disappointed that the Government has seen fit to grant permission to operate the Northwich incinerator."
A public inquiry into plans for the Barton Renewable Energy Plant (BREP) in Davyhulme is due to begin on November 13.
Mr Kilvert added:"The enthusiasm shown by local people at our public meeting to attend the public inquiry may convince the inspector and secretary of state, Eric Pickles, that BREP should not be built."
