PEEL HOLDINGS INCINERATOR JUDGEMENT DAY
 

Star date: 18th January 2014

SALFORD AFFECTED INCINERATOR GOES TO COURT

Trafford Council's challenge to Peel Holdings' Barton Renewable Energy Plant, or the Davyhulme Incinerator, is to be heard at the Civil Justice Courts in Manchester on 10th and 11th February.

The incinerator, just a toxic breath away from Salford, has been fought all the way by the Breathe Clean Air Group which is also opposing an upcoming fracking-related permit application next door to the incinerator site.

It's been one hell of a fight by the communities of Trafford and Salford, Trafford Council, Salford Council and the Breathe Clean Air Group which have all opposed the plonking of Peel Holdings' Davyhulme Incinerator, or Barton Renewable Energy Plant, within polluting distance of residential areas (see previous Salford Star articles – click here and click here).

Now Trafford Council's challenge against the Davyhulme Incinerator is to take place on February 10th and 11th at the Civil Justice Courts in Spinningfield, Manchester.

"This could be our last chance to stop this dirty, waste incinerator within the conventional process" says Pete Kilvert, Chairman of the Breathe Clean Air Group "Although the plant poses as an electricity generating power station, its real purpose is to incinerate the Peel Group's waste from the Trafford Centre and other Peel developments. The term biomass is misleading in order to acquire massive grants of taxpayers' money from the Government".

The Breathe Clean Air Group has been campaigning for over three years to prevent the incinerator being built, with marches, petitions and lobbying. The Group states that the technology for the incinerator is out of date, its filtration system is inadequate and its very short chimney stack will not be able to prevent dangerous particles and heavy metals from polluting the neighbourhood, resulting in serious health impacts on local people in the short and long-term future.

First in line are Salford residents living near Eccles (see here).

"We are extremely grateful that a united Trafford Council has had the courage and the tenacity to take on the Government and this multi-billion pound corporation" adds Pete Kilvert "The BCAG campaign has clearly shown that the people of Trafford do not want this 40 metre high monstrosity polluting our community for the next 25 years."

Now Trafford residents are not just threatened by the incinerator but also permits for fracking on the site next door to it. IGas, the company that is beginning exploratory drilling on Barton Moss, is applying for planning permission for a similar operation in Davyhulme, also being opposed by the Breathe Clean Air Group

"The pursuit of profit seems to be greater than the need for clean and safe energy" says Peter Kilvert "The Government should be focussing on safe energy such as wind, solar, tidal, wave and hydro electricity. Exposing our children to dangerous air pollution will have serious health impacts in the near future."
