Waste fa­cil­ity will have ‘a hor­ren­dous ef­fect’

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A WASTE trans­fer sta­tion will have ‘a hor­ren­dous ef­fect’ on a nearby vil­lage if con­tro­ver­sial plans to build it come to fruition, a coun­cil­lor has warned.

Chal­font St Peter parish coun­cil­lorKateSouth­worth spoke out against the ap­pli­ca­tion for the fa­cil­ity in Amer­sham.

She told the coun­cil meet­ing on Thurs­day last week: “It is go­ing to have a re­ally big ef­fect on Chal­font St Peter.

“It is go­ing to bring all th­ese heavy lor­ries with all the pol­lu­tion that goes with that and all the dan­gers on the road.

“I just think it is go­ing to have a hor­ren­dous ef­fect, and it is all ready bad for traf­fic (on the A40 Amer­sham Road). I want to make sure every­body is aware of it.”

The waste sta­tion pro­posed for London East Road, be­tween Amer­sham and Chal­font St Giles, would en­able FCC En­vi­ron­ment to de­liver its waste con­tract for Bucks County Coun­cil (BCC).

Waste would be loaded on to larger ve­hi­cles there to take it to an in­cin­er­a­tor.

The ap­pli­ca­tion is ex­pected to be con­sid­ered within the next three to five months.
