The Breathe Clean Air Group have been working tirelessly to prevent Peel Energy from building a waste wood incinerator in our already highly polluted area. We believe that the incinerator will put the children and vulnerable people within our area at risk due to the problems associated with pollution. There is much documented evidence concerning health risks associated with fine particulate matter, for more information on harmful pollution see our website: www.BreatheCleanAirGroup.co.uk
Wasn’t this thrown out by Trafford Planning Committee already?
Peel Energy has lodged an appeal with the Planning Inspectorate, despite Trafford Council’s Planning Committee’s unanimous decision to reject the proposal. Also Peel Energy claimed that they would consult with, and listen to, the local community. However their actions clearly contradict this statement, as the residents of Urmston have said a resounding NO to this proposal. Peel has chosen to ignore both the Planning Committee and the residents so is pressing ahead with their plans.
So what next?
With your help the Breathe Clean Air Group, along with its supporters, can continue to fight on your behalf to stop this waste incinerator being built next to a densely populated area. Our aim is to raise £12,500 to cover legal costs and air quality experts that we will need to help us win our case at the Public Inquiry taking place later this year. This is a huge challenge and although every penny will count, we have a long way to go to achieve the sum of money we need and unfortunately, not much time!
What can you do to help?
We are only a small group of local residents with homes, jobs and families and we are working entirely on a voluntary basis. So, we are asking all of the local residents who are opposed to the incinerator to make a donation towards fighting the next stage. We know and understand that times are hard and money is scarce, but if this plant is built it will be pumping out pollutants for twenty-five years. You cannot put a price on the health and well being of yourselves and your children.
Our promise to you!
We promise to do everything we can to fight Peel’s proposal. We want the people of Urmston to have better air quality, to enjoy living without fear of dangerous pollutants harming our health and to avoid living in an area that will suffer degeneration as a result of Peel Energy forcing this old and outdated technology upon us for the next 25 years.
