Stop the St Philip's Marsh Gas Plant

Stop the St Philip's Marsh Gas Plant

Please withdraw approval for the St Philip's Marsh gas plant.

Why is this important?

The gas plant is 90 m from a school in an area which already has dangerous levels of air pollution.
Bristol Council passed a climate emergency motion in November 2018 and has committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2030. By approving a power generation plant that burns fossil fuels the council is complicit with corporations that are driving the climate crisis.
UK Parliament declared climate emergency on May 1st 2019.

Reasons for signing

  • It’s incredible that Bristol City Council officers have even recommended this for approval, given the climate emergency declared by the council. Here’s hoping the councillors on the planning committee see sense and don’t approve it.
  • I don’t believe a power plant (that has been wearing down the planning department for years) is the right thing for a city centre area that contains a school with another (hopefully) being developed. I also think there are better, less damaging options for the environment.
  • What is needed is less pollution not more, it is as simple as that.
