Operating Permit Application Planned Incinerator - Westbury. pdf icon PDF 278 KB

To consider a comment on the attached Operating Permit Application

 

Northacre Incinerator Facility
Northacre Industrial Estate
Stephenson Road
Westbury
BA13 4WE

 

This Council wrote a letter of objection to the development of this facility last year.

Application number EPR/CP3803LV/A001

Minutes:

The Economic Development Manager confirmed Council had previously objected to the planning development on the basis that increased traffic around Melksham would adversely impact on the town.  This application is for an operating licence for the site, and the report confirms there is potential for Melksham to be polluted. The Environment Agency is asking for comments, but will be carrying out their own analysis, taking into account concerns and comments received.

 

It was proposed by Councillor Hubbard, seconded by Councillor Brown and

 

RESOLVED that Council forward a response to the Environment Agency, enclosing our previous objections, expressing objection and deep concerns that this incinerator has the potential to pollute Melksham.
