There is anger in south-east Cornwall as the Environment Agency grants a permit for a massive incinerator at Devonport

It has already got planning permission.

The company behind the project says early building work will start soon.

Paul Carey, Managing Director of MVV Environment Devonport Ltd, said:  

"We are pleased that the Environment Agency has granted an Environmental Permit for the Energy from Waste Combined Heat and Power Plant at North Yard, Devonport.  Following the granting of planning permission by Plymouth City Council and the signing of the Section 106 agreement, which sets out a wide package of benefits for the local area, we are now able to move forward with this important project for South West Devon. We intend to start preparatory work on site shortly and will keep local residents informed."

The Environment Agency says it consulted widely and sought comments from many organisations including the Health Protection Agency, Primary Care Trust and Natural England, as well as people living in the area of the proposed incinerator.
 
Rep Chris James said:

"The permit sets strict conditions to protect the local community and the environment. These cover the way the facility is operated and the monitoring of emissions. When built we will enforce these conditions"

Joe Ellison speaks for residents in Saltash:

"There are quite a number of houses on the south side of Saltash which would be affected and within sight of it. Also the height of the stack is co-incidentally about the same height as the main secondary school, which could be effected by any emissions"

"The rates of recycling in Plymouth are absolutely pathetic. They're about I believe 28-30% and recycling or anaerobic digestion would be another way of tackling waste. But those haven't even been considered"
