I think no matter what you think of the incinerator saga to date, this weekends event (detailed below) will be worthwhile attending, even if it’s just to inform ourselves of the proposals. I really believe in looking at both sides of every argument and this is no exception. While everything I have seen does make me think it is not a well thought out solution, it is good to go to the event to see if any of our fears can be put to rest.

If nothing else, forewarned is fore-armed and better understanding of the solutions will provide for a more concise discussion over the facts.

The Details

    We’ve just had one approved by Staffordshire County Council for our town.

    A couple of points interested me. Firstly, why does the county council decide on planning for this when it is their responsibility to deal with our waste? Surely a conflict of interest. Secondly (here comes the political bit) the vote was 4 for, 4 against, chairman’s casting vote carried it. Our local MP said “I am sickened that a development of this magnitude can be approved on the say-so of one out-of-touch councillor from a different part of the county.He will never be welcome in our town”.

    Well him & the other 4 who voted for it, the 1 who couldn’t make up his mind & the 5 who didn’t turn up.

    Personally I’m in favour of our incinerator, it’s on an industrial estate, next to a landfill, seems the ideal place.
