Stop the siting of a Gasification Plant Washington Tyne and Wear
Why is this important?
We the local residents are opposed to the plans for a gasification plant being built on our doorsteps.
The increase in traffic to feed the plant would greatly compound Washington's congested roads, additional concerns are the litter, pests & vermin, air quality, odours, noise, safety, health, and effect on the environment that this development would bring.
The plant could be disastrous both environmentally and economically for Washington. There are proven technologies, better than incineration which can also produce energy with significantly less pollution.
We, the residents of Washington do not want this imposed on our community. We, the local population, our families and our children would have to live with the consequences for many years to come.
This would not only effect the residential areas of Washington, it will also impact local business, schools and neighbouring areas of Sunderland.
