Update – Campaign against the Incinerator


The planning application for a replacement incinerator at Bernard Road, submitted by ONYX - the multinational company responsible for managing Sheffield’s waste, is currently reaching a crucial stage.  On Friday 6th September the council report into the application will be made available. It can be downloaded from www.sheffield.gov.uk. Hard copies will be available at Howden House, Park Library, City Centre Reference Library, and First Stop, Town Hall.

Written objections can be made up to 16th September, to-
Les Sturch, Head of Planning Division, Howden House, 1 Union Street, Sheffield, S1 2SH.

On Monday 23rd September the planning board will meet to make a decision on the application. Members of the public can attend and speak for up to five minutes at this meeting. If you want to speak at the meeting, contact Les Sturch, in writing, before 16th September.

Sheffield Friends of the Earth will be represented at the planning meeting by Maureen Edwards. After the meeting we will be joining with other anti-incinerator campaigners to plan the next steps.
