21 February 2010Waste site - Planned relocation
Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Minerals and Waste Plan - (Proposed Submission)
Consultation 15 February 2010 to 29 March 2010
There are pages relevant to Chesterton which define an "area of search" for a replacement facility for the present Milton recycling facility at Butts Lane and a proposed waste siding at Chesterton.
Our main concern is the possibility that the new centre could be located in Fen Road which would bring a significant increase in vehicular traffic on what is already a very busy residential road.
The full consultation document can be seen on the County Council website by following the external link to Cambridgeshire County Council website.
A new area of concern with regard to the County Council as the Waste Management Authority has been reported to us. A recent Committee meeting at Shire Hall refused to take action to enforce their own planning conditions on an existing site despite evidence of nuisance arising from it. This issue has arisen from a tansfer station operation in Cowley Road which is within the defined area of search for new waste treatment facilities. No one likes such a facility near their homes and in this instance there are three homes in Cowley Road being adversely affected by poor practice producing excessive noise and dust.
