Stop Veolia Action Group have released the following statement:
Veolia has lodged its appeal against the planning application refused in early February. It was submitted to the Secretary of State Wednesday 2 August, comfortably within its deadline of 23.59 on Sunday 6th.
Our understanding is that the company wishes to have this heard by public inquiry – also the preferred option of the County Council. This will take some time (typically five/six months) to organise, and is likely to involve lawyers for all parties wishing to be listened to seriously. If we go down this route, we’ll need your help to build a fighting fund; more on this later.
As soon as we have more information, not least the grounds on which the company feels an appeal justified, we will let you know.
You can be amongst the first to hear, and we’ll send you any information by email if you sign up on long-leys.org/subscribe.

Note: The Long Leys Residents’ Association has previously announced it will be opposing Veolia’s appeal.
Update 4 August 2017
The appeal details are now on the Lincolnshire County Planning website under http://eplanning.lincolnshire.gov.uk/ePlanning/loadFullDetails.do?aplId=53455.
