Sur­vey on waste plant by MSP

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - News -

A pub­lic meet­ing will take place on Mon­day about the pro­posed en­ergy from waste plant at Carn­broe.

The event has been a r ranged by Ful­ton MacGre­gor, the Coat­bridge MSP – who re­cent l y con­ducted a house­hold sur­vey, on­line and by post, to canvass opin­ion on the lat­est plans.

It will take place at Carn­broe Pri­mary at 7.30pm on Mon­day; and will be at­tended by a rep­re­sen­ta­tive of de­vel­op­ers CoGen, “to an­swer the con­cerns of lo­cal peo­ple”.

Mr MacGre­gor told the Ad­ver­tiser: “This is a se­ri­ous topic of in­cred­i­ble im­por­tance to the peo­ple of Carn­broe and sur­round­ing ar­eas. There have been fur­ther ap­pli­ca­tions to vary the ini­tial plans for the site, and it’s im­por­tant that lo­cal peo­ple are able to ask ques­tions be­fore de­cid­ing whether to make rep­re­sen­ta­tions to the plan­ning process, and whether that be in sup­port of the changes or oth­er­wise.

“I am de­lighted that CoGen have con­firmed they will be send­ing one of their ex­perts to an­swer ques­tions and look for­ward to a pro­duc­tive meet­ing.”

He added of his sur­vey re­sults: “88.71 per cent of re­sponses were against [the plans]; 9.48 per cent have con­cerns.”

A to­tal of 443 house­holds par­tic­i­pated in the MSP’s sur­vey on the sub­ject.
