Didcot residents horrified by waste digester

We hear from a resident near a proposed AD plant near Didcot that plans for a waste anaerobic digester have “horrified” neighbours in Milton Hill:

“This environment would totally change if this development went ahead with noise, pollution and traffic congestion.  This is a totally outrageous proposal with little time given to residents to fully consider such an impact on the community.”………

“The odours from the facility and the noise and pollution from lorries would be unacceptable. Our house prices would be devalued and I would seek substantial compensation should it go ahead.”   extract from the Oxford Mail 31 Dec 2013.

We know how they feel.

  1. As the owner of The Core Business Centre, the closest building to the proposed site, I am absolutely horrified about the proposal to site an AD plant in the middle of a cherry orchard, next to our office building and opposite the local primary school.

  2. We are pleased to read that you have gained the support of your MP, Ed Vaizey, for your objection to the Milton Hill AD plant proposal – our MP Fiona Bruce has not made a public statement. We don’t want to be against AD but feel such plants should be sited in appropriate places – where they will not affect the amenity of people.

  3. Jan 2014 update: This proposal was withdrawn by the applicant before the decision date – possibly due to the strength of the opposition of local residents.
