Breathe Clean Air Group #Trafford at High Court in #Manchester. Hearing finishes Tues 11th

High Court Hearing Continues Tomorrow - Tuesday 11th February 2014 - 10:30am - Court 41, Civil Justice Courts, Manchester

DAY ONE UPDATE • High Court Challenge Hearing into Davyhulme Incinerator
About 20 members of the Breathe Clean Air Group and the local community turned up at Manchester Civil Courts of Justice on Day 1 of Trafford Council’s Appeal against Peel Energy’s controversial proposal for a waste wood incinerator plant.

The purpose of today was for a Judge to assess if the Government’s Inspector came to the right conclusion at the Public Inquiry in November 2012, and if the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Eric Pickles, made the correct decision to allow planning permission for Peel’s dirty incinerator. Trafford Council, the Secretary of State and Peel were each represented by a barrister. Frustratingly, there was to be no evidence heard about the ill health effects of Biomass and burning wood and general waste.

    Well, if the people of Trafford start to suffer ill-health as a result of emissions from this incinerator, Eric Pickles can always blame the Environment Agency!
