Response from No Incinerator 4 Horsham Community Group 26.6.22

Ni4H submitted a 64-page response plus appendices to the EA on 26th June 2022 with this covering letter.

Ni4H was encouraged by the thorough start to the EA’s analysis when Schedule 5 Notices were issued on 23rd August 2021 and 16th February 2022, requiring the Applicant to provide additional information in order to determine the application. Ni4H expected further Schedule 5 notices to be forthcoming.

It has been very difficult to engage with the EA’s consultation process – there have been missing documents, unreadable data, inaccurate information, errors and inconsistencies.

Ni4H Community Group is very disappointed and deeply concerned given the high ethical commitments set by the EA Chair and Chief Executive in The Environment Agency Strategy ‘Creating a better place Our ambition to 2020’. The EA has so far not lived up to their corporate pledge: ‘will go the extra mile for the people and places we serve’ to ensure that this consultation reflects the high standards of governance expected of such a senior agency of government and put right the current deficiencies identified before any final decisions are taken.
