To Whom It May Concern,

DNS/3214813

The incinerator hasn’t been proposed on a regional ‘needs’ basis and there isn’t sufficient waste to burn locally. My concern is that waste will be shipped over long distances to be burnt in the middle of the beautiful countryside.

Cefn Bridge is a crunch point literally and there have been many accidents there over the years. It won’t be long before someone dies and the increased HGV traffic for the incinerator will make this more and more likely.

The developers haven’t taken into account the fact that waste will have to be shipped over long distances and the infrastructure around Buttington won’t be able to handle this kind of industry. It should be on an industrial estate near bigger roads and better transport links.

The impact on areas of historical interest surrounding the proposed incinerator site have been neglected such as Cefn Digoll and Bausley Hill.

The incinerator will give an extremely poor impression to people visiting Wales. By putting heavy industry on this busy and currently beautiful border crossing, what first impression does this give about Wales?

Yours Sincerely
r lewis
