Urgent Help for Summer ’21

We now urgently need to raise funds for the second stage of the campaign! 

Powerfuel, the developers, will be dropping ‘revision documents’ into Dorset Council Planning any day now.  There is a short turnaround of approximately 30 days for us to comment and object.  The documents will be lengthy, complex and contain much technical detail. 

As in the first round of Planning, we again need to commission specialist consultants and also specialist environmental legal advice to scrutinise the documents and  lodge valid and effective objections.

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.

LATEST NEWS!!

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.

We anticipate that Powerfuel will resubmit their revised planning documents quite soon, and from that point we will only have 30 days in which to respond.

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