Incinerator Protest

On Monday, the Vale of White Horse District Council (VWHDC) will be considering its response to the proposed Incinerator between Sutton Courtney and Appleford. Some of the campaigners were in town warning people of the air quality and health dangers. They will be back on Monday to petition councillors.

The County Council is the real decision maker but the VWHDC is consulted, and will be considering:
  • The visual impact of the development with its tall chimney
  • The effect on traffic - a 10% increase is expected
  • The effect on outdoor air quality and the environment generally
