To whom it may concern

Please accept this email as my strong objection to the above application for the following reasons:

1.It is still located on the same site, in close proximity to residential housing and schools
Emissions from the incinerator will potentially impact the health of residents and our children, as well as potentially polluting the wildlife and plants on the Gwent levels.

2. The incinerator’s mass and scale will have a considerable visual impact on the surrounding area and views towards the Severn Estuary. The building would add no architectural value to the surrounding area as It would stand out against the Green landscape surrounding it.

3. The proximity to the new Eastern High School is of significant concern to all those involved with the facility.
It would be beyond belief to place such a noisy, polluting development so close to where children are situated for up to 7 hours per day.

4. The addition of 80 lorry journeys per day to the surrounding road network would be the straw that broke the camel’s back. Peak hours during ‘normal’ times are at grid-lock around the Lamby Way area. It will add even more congestion to a very busy road throughout Cardiff, which will further increase air pollution.

5. I'm also concerned by the damage that could be done to the local wildlife around the construction of the site.

As a resident of St Mellons I strongly object to this application!

Kind regards,

Piotr Stefanczyk
