I strongly object to this application of the Mor Hafren incinerator.
I believe this site is too close to schools, homes and a big residential area. The pollution will drastically effect air quality and will negatively impact local residents health, especailly that of children. Cardiff already has an incinerator, we don't need any more polluting our air. The amount of CO2 this incinerator will produce is not acceptable and shouldn't be allowed. We are in a Carbon Climate Emergency. We need to be lowering these emissions, not significantly adding to them. I'm also concerned about where all of this waste will come from. Waste produced in South Wales is not enough to sustain this incinerator for the planned 25 years.
The road infrastructure is not suitable or sustainable for the number of HGVs proposed daily. This will lead to more traffic on already congested roads, more air pollution and noise pollution to residents.
The site area is alongside an SSSI. The environment will be harmed by both the construction and daily operations of this application. This area is also prone to flooding. There are lots of reens here and the potential of leaks from an incident will cause harmful contamination and this will have a detrimental effect on the environment.
I strongly object to this application.
