Mor Hafren: Energy Recovery Facility
Received 26 November 2020
From Andrew Kennett
“I wish to strongly object to the proposed CF3 incinerator on the following grounds.
Far to close to residents and schools.
Visual Impact - The Visual Impact will be huge, the building itself (over 45m) will be more than 3 times larger than the nearest building the Aldi Distribution Centre.
This is an (environmentally protected) area called "The Levels" that means the areas around it is mostly flat.
• Air Quality/Health Impact - The emissions although likely to be within "safe limits" will already add to a heavily polluted (and deprived) area of Cardiff. The health assessment produced is also rather worrying for families Local residents are fed up with being the dumping ground of Cardiff.
• Air Quality/CO2 - CoGen will not have to report, capture/filter or pay for any of the CO2/Carbon that they release through the burning process. Cardiff has declared a Carbon Climate Emergency; this will make that Carbon emergency much worse. We estimate it will produce more than 200,000 tonnes of CO2 every year. Skyfill is not the answer to Landfill.
• Traffic - The local roads are already congested. CoGen give no clear reason as to why the waste can't be transported to site on the railway/freightliner site which is less than 50m away.
