No one in the Long Leys community really needs reminding that Veola’s planning application for a waste transfer station was turned down in February 2017. But that is not the end of the matter as far as Stop Veolia is concerned. We do not know what Veolia will do next but we are watching for any sign of their activities. If Veolia decide to appeal the planning decision or submit a further planning application then we are ready to respond.
What we know
Since the planning decision there has been no contact with Lincoln City Council (as of 21 March 2017) and Veolia have not approached the ultimate owners of the land. They appear to have gone off the radar. We presume they are licking their wounds before trying again. If you do hear anything relating to Veolia’s plans please let the Stop Veolia campaign team know. You can find their contact details at stopveolia.org

The proposals were controversial in the local area as a 300 signature strong petition was delivered to the council in objection to the station on the grounds of noise, smell, vermin and pollution. The planning officer’s recommendation was to refuse planning permission. Veolia UK have been contacted for comment but have yet to respond.

The incident took place recently in Sutton, South London, which was seen as a fiasco. It involved the infamous Veolia ES (UK) Ltd once again and it became that the local residents suffered the most.
