Council won't wait for new incinerator health study
IMPASSIONED pleas to postpone the Javelin Park incinerator plans until a new health study is completed have fallen on deaf ears.
Liberal Democrat councillors urged Shire Hall bosses to delay the proposal until the Health Protection Agency (HPA) publishes its findings in March 2014.
The HPA's current position states that 'well run and regulated modern municipal waste incinerators are not a significant risk to public health'.
However, prompted by public concern, the agency has begun a new study researching whether there is a potential link between incinerator emissions and health problems.
