I am writing to express my grave concern about a proposal by Emsrayne Renewable Energy Limited to build a 49.99MW combined Heat and Power incinerator at New Mill End on the Lower Harpenden road on high value Green Belt land.
The road is already extremely congested and the proposed junction for the plant is an accident black spot where a number of people have lost their lives. It is the busiest B road in Hertfordshire and the second busiest B road in the UK.
These plants are currently under great scrutiny as operators are hiding their emissions of particulates, which aggravate breathing problems and heart and lung disease and increase mortality rates (see this article in the Times https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/def0f3f8-8a06-11e8-a0fd-e428ecc3ac12).
With air quality already under threat in this area from the airport and the motorway we really don't need the problem exacerbating.
This affects us and our children. We do not need more incinerators as there will be 9 Million tonnes over capacity by 2030
I urge you in the strongest terms to object to this proposal for the sake of all those living in Harpenden, Luton and the surrounding areas.
