Wheelabrator, a US company, is trying to persuade the Government to let them to build a “waste to energy” plant alongside the A303, just east of Andover.

They plan to operate round the clock causing noise, pollution and flooding the countryside with light. Hundreds of vehicles, mostly heavy lorries, would arrive or leave averaging one every four minutes. Those lorries will be travelling from up to 2 hours away, possibly more, as Hampshire already burns its own rubbish.

All this will add much to global warming at a time when we are reaching the climate change point of no return. The drivers won’t work directly for Wheelabrator   They will be told not to, but nothing will stop them using country roads avoiding blockages on the A34 and A303.

An 8 km trench will be dug past Andover to reach the National Grid.

The plant will cast a huge shadow over part of a nearby solar farm, reducing its green power output.

To us it just doesn’t make sense. To them it means money in the bank.

Longparish Community Association are hosting this appeal and in the unlikely event any money is left over it will be used to benefit the community.

This campaign will cost a lot. Funding environmental reports as evidence will each cost £10,000 or more.
