PLEASE RESPOND TO THE NEW CONSULTATION ON WASTE SITES

Latest NewsPosted by Cathy Sat, November 10, 2012 11:23:12

PLEASE RESPOND TO

THE NEW HERTS COUNTY COUNCIL CONSULTATION

ON PROPOSED SUBMISSION WASTE SITE ALLOCATIONS DOCUMENT

When: Nov 9th to Dec 21st 2012

Who to respond to: email spatialplanning@hertscc.gov.uk

Or post to Spatial and Land Use Planning CHN216, Hertfordshire County Council, Pegs Lane, Hertford, Herts SG12 8DN.

What are you responding to: This is a consultation on Waste Sites for the whole of Hertfordshire. New Barnfield is included as a potential waste site for many kinds of waste management, including “thermal treatment” (i.e. Incineration).

The document is called “Proposed Submission Waste Site Allocations Document”.

Why should you respond?

Although 6300 people objected to Veolia’s Planning Application for an incinerator at New Barnfield (consultation Dec 2011-Jan 2012),and 2000 people objected to New Barnfield being a waste site (consultation Feb-March 2012), New Barnfield is STILL included as a waste site in this latest version of the HCC Waste Sites Document.

So people need to object to New Barnfield still being listed.

EVEN IF YOU OBJECTED BEFORE, YOU NEED TO OBJECT YET AGAIN.

How to respond:

a. You can write a simple letter or email saying that New Barnfield should not be included in the list of sites.

If you objected to the Waste Sites document in Spring 2012, you can say that you still object to New Barnfield being included.

b. You can use the HAI simplified form (on our website www.hatfield-anti-incineration.co.uk).

c. You can use the official, more detailed, HCC form.

Look on www.hertsdirect.org. Search for Waste Site Allocations, and then click on “Proposed Submission Waste Site Allocations 2012”. There is a list of documents, and the response form is near the end. Or ask for one in a library of council offices.

d. You can use the official HCC on-line consultation response system.
