As of March 19, we are delighted to be able to tell you that the total number of objections to Veolia’s planning application for an enormous incinerator on the A31 near Alton, has now topped 5,000. This impressive figure represents the 3,300 submitted in the first round of public consultation, plus a further 1,900 recorded from the second round to date.
At present, we cannot be certain that Hampshire County Council has finished loading all objections. However, we do know that they have added a significant number received in late February and early March, beyond the consultation deadline of February 15.
A date for the Regulatory Committee to consider this planning application is yet to be set. Meetings are suspended for the next two months pending local council elections so the committee will not meet until mid-June at the earliest. As well as this mailing list, you can also follow developments on our website, Facebook and Twitter.
