Mor Hafren: Energy Recovery Facility

Received 27 November 2020
From Vaughan Gething MS/AS


Objection to Planning Application
Reference: DNS/3236340
Developer: Môr Hafren Bio Power

Dear Sir/Madam

I am writing in capacity as the local constituency Member of the Senedd for Cardiff South and Penarth to raise formal objections to the above mentioned DNS application.

I have been contacted by a number of constituents who have raised concerns over plans to build an energy from waste plant in the Wentloog area of St Mellons.

If given the go - ahead, the Mor Hafren facility will take commercial and industrial waste from the South Wales region.

I recognise the concerns expressed by local residents over the potential health and environmental impact of the plant and the volume of traffic entering and exiting the site.

I am concerned about the potential impact from lorry transport and would raise objections with regard to concerns about the rates and frequency of lorry journeys and the impact that this could have on air quality in the area.
