Environmental Permit issued….

Today the Environment Agency formally approved the Environmental Permit application for the Keighley Incinerator. This represents the final greenlight for Endless Energy to operate the incinerator, should they eventually build it.
Clearly this is very disappointing, but we would like to stress that there are still options available to us.
Following the news AVAI members met today to kick off the next stage of our opposition campaign. Over the last couple of months we have been liaising with our environmental lawyers, who worked with us to review our main objections and to write and deliver a letter to the Environment Agency reiterating our long list of concerns. This will form the basis for any legal challenge should we go down that avenue.
It is important to remember that this development was first approved back in 2013, and in those 7 years the developers, who have changed names and ownership several times, have managed to just lay a patch of tarmac and kerbing surrounded by some rather dilapidated ‘non’-acoustic fencing.

We are kick starting our fund raising to allow us to continue with our legal conversations and establish our route forward. All donations options can be found at http://www.avai.org.uk/donate/

Stay positive, stay safe and we will update you again very soon.
Thank you as ever for all your support.
