Planning Objection

Click HERE for Dorset Council’s planning page (you’ll need to click “Accept” to proceed to make your objection).

Powerfuel’s “Consultation response summary report” can be found HERE. It is a long document and may put people off. The documents show that the developer has concentrated on our previous Adams Hendry Planning Consultants Report, and there is a lack of response to other detailed objections. Please have a look and pick out items you wish to object to.


We need as many objections as possible; the more relevant they are, the more the planning decision must consider the weight of public feeling.

All new objections will be added to previous objections. Ideally, we are aiming to get a total of 5,000 (or more).

Please help us by taking the time to object.

SPWI and JCAI are working together to commission expert legal advice.

We now urgently need to raise funds! 


We are fighting for the communities of Portland, Wyke, Weymouth,  Osmington and beyond to stop a proposal to build a mercantile waste incinerator plant on the north-east coast of the iconic Isle of Portland and the Jurassic World Heritage Coast.  

The South West already has surplus capacity in waste incineration and a new plant is finishing construction in Bridgewater.  Government waste data (2019) records all Dorset landfill is small quantities of inert rubble.  Dorset is a County leader for recycling.  Wales has stopped all new incinerators from being built.

Did you know?

Do you know that this plant at £100m+ is designed to make only 15MW of power – the same as one 15MW wind turbine costing only £15m!

The proposed plant is so large it will probably have to import waste from far beyond Dorset. It will emit totally unacceptable amounts of greenhouse gases and pollutants, whilst generating an additional 80 lorry journeys a day through our streets.

5th July 2021 Stop Portland Waste Incinerator and Jurassic Coast Against Incineration (affiliated with the Portland Association) have come together to challenge this crucial stage of Powerfuel’s planning application to build a commercial waste incinerator at Portland Port.

We urgently need to raise £45,000 to commission the expert legal and environmental advice needed to do this.

Please donate what you can to help us.  Your continued support is much appreciated, and gratefully received…..
