In order for the waste management plant in Ratty’s Lane, Hoddesdon to go ahead, Veolia must obtain both planning permission from Hertfordshire County Council and an operating permit from the Environmental Agency.
As such, the Environmental Agency is holding a drop in session for residents affected by the incinerator to voice their opinions on the environmental impact of the proposal. Please feel free to visit and make your voice heard, the more residents complain, the more likely the permit will be denied.
The Drop will be held on 27th July 13.00 – 17.00 the Baptist Church Hall, Burford Street Hoddesdon EN11 8HX
Parking is on site and close by on the opposite side of Burford Street there is a public CP by the Pound Close playing fields, or alternatively parking is available at Morrisons.
Please be aware that the environmental agency will not be interested in issues such as traffic, congestion or the visual impact of the building, but will be interested in hearing views surrounding air and water pollution, from both the incinerator and the vehicles going into and out of it.
