Come along to the Ni4H Stand and meet some of the team at the Kinder Living Show – Saturday 2nd March 10am – 4pm and Sunday 3rd March 10am – 3pm, to see Ni4H displays and find out more, Parkside, Horsham.

Many thanks to all those who have walked miles delivering leaflets and flyers to over 10,000 properties and many thanks to over 1,042 people who have signed the online or paper petition to the Planning Inspector: ‘Dismiss Horsham Incinerator’.

West Sussex County Council (WSCC) is only defending one of the original 6 reasons for refusal, we can still present evidence and concerns to the Inspector by midnight on Monday 4th March about all 6 and any additional reasons. At the 3-week Public Inquiry commencing on Tuesday 29th October, Britaniacrest and WSCC will be represented by barristers with technical expert witnesses and reports.

A spokesperson for No Incinerator 4 Horsham Community Group (Ni4H) said:

“If you oppose plans for a Horsham Incinerator please donate money to Ni4H, so that the people can be represented at the Public Inquiry by a barrister, technical expert witnesses and reports, to enable us to robustly present our case against the plans and robustly analyse the case as presented by Britaniacrest and WSCC. Ni4H volunteers are doing all we can to keep costs down, but urgently need to raise £10,000 to proceed as a Rule 6 Party and continue fundraising until the autumn, to raise an estimated £30,000 to £50,000. Many thanks to everyone who has donated, we currently have £2,105.”

    My reasons for opposing the construction of an incinerator in Horsham have not changed.
    1. Evidence suggests it will increase the level of pollution in the vicinity and as I live around half a mile from the proposed site it will directly affect me and thousands of other existing and, from the new housing complex, potential residents.
    2. Despite assertions that vehicle movements will not increase that daily maximum will be subject to revision once the site is operational, and it means the overall number of heavy and large commercial vehicles are likely to increase.
    3. The height of the proposed chimney will inevitably dominate the skyline adversely affecting the current landscape.
    4. Incinerating waste is not the way to dispose of our rubbish as it adds to emissions that contribute to global warming . Far better to increase recycling such as that provided by the adjacent MBT facility run by Biffa.
    5. The company making the proposal does not, in my opinion, have a particularly good reputation and does not appear to want to go the extra mile to ensure profit is balanced against environmental considerations.
    6. The summary the consequence of allowing the creation of this facility to go ahead will be detrimental to public health, the local environment and to harmful emissions.
