It’s too large:

  • The plant would be one of the very largest in Europe, centralising waste for seven London boroughs

      • It’s built to meet forecasts of rising waste levels 30 years hence – but waste levels are going down

        •  
          • The plant will import waste – from where we do not know but North London has enough of its own
            • It’s in the wrong place:
               

              • Site of Importance for Nature Conservation (SINC) Grade 1 of Borough-wide importance

                •  
                  • The site is on a green corridor

                    •  
                      • It sits 80m from the nearest housing and 14 schools lie within a 1.5Km radius of the site

There is a better way:

 

  • Use existing waste sites effectively, including intensifying their productivity through investment

      • Build smaller plants, local to waste production, if and only if demand shows them being required

        •  
          • Work to reduce the levels of waste ending up in black bags – reuse, recycle, rethink
            • Simple?

              Yes but this is an £8 billion pound initiative, heavily resourced to deliver. A lot of money is at stake. To date the Pinkham Way Alliance has faced two public hearings for two major planning inquiries and a multitude of challenges. And yet more are expected. This is a David vs Goliath fight.
