    Policy-makers and regulators have failed to take any measures to protect communities from wood dust, and have failed to commission any studies into the wider health effects of wood dust on residents exposed to it. Communities therefore have little choice but to do the research themselves, and to campaign for a regulatory system that prioritises community health and well-being over corporate profits. As the UK burns more and more wood in its power stations, more communities will be forced to live next to wood processing infrastructure and be exposed to the impacts of wood dust, noise and fire risk. Well done MEAG for working so tirelessly to protect your community.

    It is important that the Environment Agency gives serious considerations to the concerns of local people. As can be seen from the number of fires at waste sites, the Environment Agency lacks the resources to properly regulate waste management activities. The EA needs to get tougher on violations, regulation should entail more monitoring and stricter standards, the EA should carry out more inspections, be more transparent about their activities, and do a better job of engaging with waste campaigners.
