We are a group of local residents and business owners who share a range of concerns about proposals by a company called ASH (Renishaw) Ltd to gain planning permission to use a site to de-comtaminate industrial waste (including hazardous materials), on Station Road, Renishaw, Derbyshire.
Our concerns include:-
People are fearful over the long term health implications of breathing in the emissions from a plant decontaminating hazardous wastes.
Above all we are united in the belief that Station Road is the wrong site for a hazardous waste decontamination facility.
The site is in the center of the village and is too close to residential homes and schools, as well as to incompatible businesses, the Trans Pennine Trail, Chesterfield Canal and the confluence of the rivers Doe Lea and Rother.
Access to the site (via Station Road and adjoining roads/country lanes) is also considered unsuitable and unsafe for the estimated 40 HGV movements per day carrying waste to and from the site.
We are raising awareness of this planning application so that members of the community are able to inform themselves about the development and, if they are concerned, provide them the opportunity to express their views to Derbyshire County Council who will make the final decision as to whether to refuse or approve planning permission.
We, the undersigned, oppose the use of bio-remediation, proposed as part of the planning application for the recovery of ash and ballast at Station Road, Renishaw, Derbyshire.
The Renishaw Against Bio-remediation petition to Derbyshire County Council was written by Lee Norton and is in the category Environment at GoPetition.
