York Residents Against Incineration

York Green Party have written a strongly-worded statement in opposition to the proposed £24 million incinerator in Tockwith (see earlier news story).

Green Party Councillor Dave Taylor called the proposals “ugly, speculative and dangerous.” In a letter to North Yorkshire Council he wrote “The safety of gasification incinerators is not proven, and I do not accept that their Environmental Statement is a robust model of the worst-case scenario. We have seen cases in this country and abroad where incinerators and gasification plants have been operating without their pollution control devices working correctly for long periods.”
