Decision Expected On Waste Treatment Centre

Thursday April 12 2012



A DECISION will soon be made on whether a controversial waste treatment centre can be built in the Dearne Valley.

The plan looks to develop land off Bolton Road at Manvers for a plant that will process up to 200,000 tons of household waste a year.

The development is being proposed by 3SE, a partnership between Shanks Waste Solutions and Scottish and Southern Energy but nearby residents claim it could lead to increased traffic and bad smells.

Barnsley Council raised no objection to the plan during consulting - but the final decision on whether or not it goes ahead will be with Rotherham Council.

People in Wath have long known the aftermath of the toxic waste plant years ago, many cancers have developed in this area since. Along with miners that have chronic respirtory illnesses, it has become one of the unhealthiest areas in the Dearne Valley. I would like to ask the question whether or not there is any risks to peoples health should the proposals go ahead, What research has been done into this?.  What concerns me even more is all the new houses and people that have moved in from other areas and don't know of its past
