Planning committee considered a renewed application for the expansion of the Eastcroft incinerator.
The application was agreed.
I took no part, in the main cos I’ve explained the case for the incinerator with activists at previous Green Festivals so often, that I doubted that assurances of having an “open mind” when considering the application would cut any ice.
Incineration (with heat taken as steam to turbines and district heating schemes, metal being taken for further processing and ash for landfill) ranks higher than landfill on the re-use, recycle waste pyramid.
The other application for new care facilities at the Cedars hospital site in Sherwood was very interesting for the curves lines in one of the new main buildings.
Justified, because creating a beautiful place is part of helping people get well.
