MONTON INCINERATOR FAILS IN SALFORD BUT PEEL HOLDINGS PLANNING NEW ONE
 

Star date: 28th August 2012

NEVER MIND THE GREEN LANE INCINERATOR HERE COMES PEEL HOLDINGS WITH ANOTHER ONE!

The Planning Inspector finally chucked out plans for a `waste treatment centre' on Green Lane in Monton. This is great news – but a few miles up the road, Peel Holdings is planning a nasty new incinerator on the Trafford side of the Manchester Ship Canal which, campaigners claim, will have major health and environmental affects on Salford.

Will those who campaigned against the Monton plant now join the Breathe Clean Air Group?

Salford's councillors, residents, MPs, businesses and Mayor Ian Stewart all opposed plans for a `waste treatment centre' on Green Lane in Monton which were finally kicked out last week by the Planning Inspector on the basis that the proposed development did not fit with the development plan for the area.

"This particular development was incredibly unpopular among the local community and the planning inspector took this strength of feeling into consideration when making his decision on whether to uphold the city council's planning decision" said Councillor Derek Antrobus, Salford Council's Assistant Mayor for Strategic Planning. 

"There is a need for developments like this but it is essential we consider residents' views when looking at where they should be located" he added "In this particular case the site was not appropriate and we are pleased that the planning inspector has upheld the planning panel's decision."

The trashing of plans for the Monton incinerator is certainly good news for the city but now another monster lurks just across the Canal, where Peel Holdings is determined, despite the refusal of planning permission from Trafford Council, to force through its incinerator plans which, campaigners claim, will have an equally detrimental affect on Salford citizens.

"Whilst not trying to put a dampener on celebrations of a successful outcome, I have to remind the citizens of Salford and members of the City Council, that a bigger cloud is on the horizon" says Pete Kilvert of the Breathe Clean Air Group.

"Peel Energy wants to build the Barton Renewable Energy Plant on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal" he adds "It proposes to burn waste wood and other waste and its emissions are bound to include nitrogen dioxide, carbon dioxide, heavy metals including arsenic, dioxins, volatile organic compounds and fine particulate matter. All have health and environmental impacts. Salford is down wind of this plant due to the south-westerly prevailing wind. So it is forecast that Salford citizens will suffer ill health, disease and premature death."

The Breathe Clean Air Group campaigners are urging all those involved in seeing off the Monton incinerator to get involved with the Barton campaign.

In June, Trafford Council passed a motion condemning Peel for appealing against its decision to refuse planning permission for the incinerator. It read…

"Council deplores the recent action of Peel Energy in appealing the decision of Trafford Council's Planning Committee to refuse planning permission for a bio-mass incinerator in Davyhulme. This was a unanimous decision of the planning committee on the grounds of the perceived threat to the health of Trafford residents. The Council demands that Peel Energy reconsiders its decision to appeal the refusal and withdraws their appeal forthwith."

Even Salford Council is backing Trafford at the forthcoming Planning Inquiry, where Peel will try and overturn the decision, Derek Antrobus highlighting "significant concerns about the potential impact of the proposed plant on the people of Salford, due to its location and prevailing wind directions, and because of the facility's location in an air quality management area where standards are already exceeded".

Now campaigners who fought against the Monton plant are urged to join the Breathe Clean Air Group to help avoid another pollution threat from Peel Holdings.

"The future of Salford is at stake if the Davyhulme Incinerator gets built" concludes Pete Kilvert "Fears that emissions from the incinerator will cause health problems in Barton, Eccles, Weaste and Ordsall, could cause a mass exodus from the area, which could also devalue house prices. MediaCityUK is just two miles downwind of the controversial incinerator, and emissions could scupper plans for its further development".
