As concerns over the building of an Incinerator just 3.5 miles from Whitchurch Square are increasing, Wheelabrator the American company that intents to build the plant has announced a series of public ‘consultations’.
The proposed Incinerator is said to be larger than Battersea Power Station and would be placed in the countryside near the River Test just the other side of Longparish. Whitchurch would be directly under any emission output and there could be other effects such as greater HGV traffic, harmful emissions, possible health effects, property devaluations and a blight on the surrounding countryside and farmland.
These would all have to be mitigated in some way.
THIS IS JUST 3.5 MILES FROM THE CENTRE OF WHITCHURCH (and just 2.6 miles from the Parish boundary)
THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO HAVE A SAY
The Whitchurch Consultation is to be held…
TUESDAY 12th NOVEMBER, 5.00pm – 9.00pm
