Wheelabrator proposal imageWheelabrator, the company behind the application to build a massive waste incinerator less than one mile from Longparish and just a few miles from Whitchurch, now say that the site could run 24 hours a day with lorry movements averaging every 4 minutes!

At a previous public exhibition held in Longparish the company were speaking in terms of a 12 hour, seven day a week facility with around 280 movements of heavy (diesel) lorries accessing the site. But it appears the company has now admitted that the number will be far larger, with anything up to 400 lorry movements over a 24 hour operational day.

A spokesperson for the Keep Test Valley Beautiful – ‘No Monstrous Incinerator’ group, set up to fight the proposals, say they now have added concerns over noise and light pollution emanating from the site throughout the night.
