Agency seeks views over incinerator
A DROP-IN session is being held about controversial plans for a Keighley waste incinerator.
The Environment Agency is to decide whether to grant Endless Energy Ltd a permit for the facility at the former Old Gas Works site on Aire Valley Road, which will use rubbish as fuel to generate energy. The plans have sparked protests, with Keighley MP John Grogan and Shipley MP Philip Davies among those opposing the incinerator.
The Environment Agency is seeking views from the local community and interested groups on the application in a public consultation which runs until December 13.
It is holding an event to tell people how they can comment on the permit application. The drop-in session is being held on Tuesday from 2pm to 8pm at The Victoria Hall, Victoria Park, Hard Ings Road, Keighley.
