I see that work on this site is well underway and I doubt that Brad Met would pull the plug on this construction when presented with a petition from local people. But having said that I have signed the petition and I live in hope.

This is item 5 on the agenda

It is recommended that this development is approved - but is it really suitable for a valley location?

EFW Sites have extremely strict controls on them and all fumes etc are treated prior to exiting the plant. It's an eye saw down there anyway, can only bring more jobs and a bit of construction to the local area which is bound to be a good thing...

Written by David Bateman, Hospital Road, Riddlesden

Bradford Council has just made the devastating decision to ignore all the advice of the World Health Organisation and approve the waste incinerator at Marley – the first to be located in a valley bottom.

Now, from Gargrave to Bradford, we will all live, work or go to school within range of a facility creating 24/7 some of the most deadly chemical emissions known to science.

How could the people of Airedale and the surrounding area let this creep up on them?

Somehow, information that should have been freely available has been hard to come by (even councillors in adjacent but vulnerable wards had been unaware). Inevitably, those who had made themselves aware, did the research and protested, were called a minority. Bingo!

The outcome is Airedale is to be the site of a dangerous experiment. The developers cite 11 other plants already in operation. Not relevant, unless they, too, are located in residential areas in narrow valleys. As for the impact on public health in the 11 areas, a full assessment of that might take a generation and it won’t be good.

Looking to the economic future here, is this the way to encourage inward investment by non-polluting firms – enterprises that might actually bring real jobs and prosperity to the region? Is this the Northern Powerhouse we wish to belong to?

Clearly, a higher authority needs to look behind Bradford Council’s bland assertion that the benefits of the scheme outweigh the ‘identified harm’. This is not a matter of weights and measures. How can you weigh threats to human health against so-called benefits? There are no safe levels of dioxins in the environment.

Has Bradford MDC done anything to look for ‘identified harm’ elsewhere? According to Memorandum (Waste 28) on the parliamentary website, plenty exists.

The positive-sounding term ‘energy from waste’ is a planners’ fig leaf, given the dangerous location of the incinerator in a valley bottom. The Secretary of State for Local Government still has the power to overturn the decision.

You can write and make your views known to him or to your MP.

That's rather an extreme solution for something we didn't ask to be built in the first place and were not consulted about.

As it happens most of our weather comes from the Cowling direction (so we will not suffer from much of the fallout) but if you live in Ridlesden or Ilkley your health may not be so good in a few years time if this development goes ahead. The incinerator will burn industrial waste and it will burn waste from outside the Bradford area. It will be fed by up to 70 lorry loads of waste EVERY day and it is very likely some of those lorries will come through Silsden.

The incinerator will be built in the Aire Valley, which has high sides, almost all the other incinerators of this type are built on the east coast, none have been built in a valley, until now.

I thoroughly share your concerns Peter and those of everyone else. Not all incinerators are on the East Coast, Plymouth was landed with one a few years ago. It sits in the naval dockyard and at the bottom of a valley. It is also surrounded by housing on three sides. It was not welcomed by anyone except the city council (does that sound familiar!) and any concerns raised during the so-called consulations were more or less ignored. Data on the Internet, although a year old by now, shows that pollution levels in the 'fall out' areas are higher than is deemed to be acceptable. This is, of course, denied by experts from the city council. Silsden will avoid most of the 'fall out' due to the prevailing westerlies but it may be a different matter should the wind turn round from the east.

As an aside, if large trucks for the incinerator are to transit through Silsden, then they should be banned and sent the long way round, preferably through the centre of Bradford or via the roads where the councillors live who voted in favour of the incinerator.

Judicial review

The AVAI committee have unanimously voted to apply for a judicial review of the Marley incinerator. This will legally challenge the council's approval of the planning application. This action is being taken based on the opinion of expert legal advice that we have an arguable case and that the council have made errors in law. Only with the generous donations and support of our members and the...
