Oppose the Alfreton rd incinerator
HELP US OPPOSE THE ALFRETON ROAD INCINERATOR
We - a group of residents, parents and business owners living, working in and caring about Darley Abbey, Allestree, Chester Green, Breadsall, Strutts Park, Chaddesden, Oakwood and Little Eaton - are campaigning against the planned incinerator on Alfreton Road, Derby
This site will affect Darley Abbey, Breadsall, Chester Green, Allestree, Strutts Park, Chaddesden, Oakwood and Little Eaton – as well as the tens of thousands of people who live, work, or attend the many schools, sports and social clubs in these areas of north Derby.
On October 12th, Derby City Council passed the application for the ‘Development of facilities to enable the testing of a new technology based on a pyrothermic conversion process utilising SRF (solid recovered fuel) and erection of external 20 metre high chimney stack for a temporary period of 18 months.’
In layman’s terms, this equates to the development of a waste incinerator; right next to several densely populated residential areas, a World Heritage Site, Darley Park – enjoyed by thousands of people every week – as well as a nature reserve and the River Derwent.
The full proposal – which has now been approved by Derby City Council - can be found here: https://docs.derby.gov.uk/ paserver/index.aspx?caseref= 10/16/01241
Until recently, a small group has been raising awareness and funds to gain legal advice against the proposals. Since permission was granted, a public meeting attended by over 80 local residents showed the concerns of many, and now a committee has been formed to fight this development going ahead.
WE NEED TO RAISE FUNDS URGENTLY – BEFORE DEC 1ST - IN ORDER TO STOP THIS DEVELOPMENT.
We need to raise a total of £15,000 to fight this planned development. However, the first steps of the campaign are to reach Judicial Review, for which we need your help to raise a total of £6000 by DECEMBER 1st. We’re getting closer to this initial goal. Please help us reach it before Dec 1st!
If we are going to stop this, we MUST lodge our legal challenge in the High Court by 1st December 2017. We have no time to delay and we need to pay our specialist environmental solicitors and planning barrister to prepare the application for Judicial Review. They must start work immediately.
ALL PROCEEDS from the event will go towards the legal fund for the Judicial Review
