Mor Hafren: Energy Recovery Facility

Even though Energy Recovery Facility is a necessity , I am not happy with the proposed location due the following reasons:

1.Proximity to the new Eastern High School – due the fact that the long term effects of the effluent gases is not known and there may be lasting effects on the children due to the facility located so close to schools.
2. Ecology - the effect on the SSSI area will be extremely damaging. The wet lands are home to many wild life and birds.
3.Traffic - the inevitable increased traffic level from not only the construction of the facility but thereafter will have a devastating impact on the environment. The traffic is already significant on Rover Way and the surrounding areas. Many residents and visitors of Cardiff and Newport are effected by this and is already grid locked in rush hours.
