Registration to have your say on the Covanta application has now commenced on the Infrastructure Planning Commission (IPC) web site with a closing date of the 19th November. Copy and paste this link
http://infrastructure.independent.gov.uk/projects/eastern/rookery-south-energy-from-waste-generating-station/
Please note if you do not register as an interested party before the deadline - you will not be able to make any comments or representations to the IPC at a future date.

During this registration stage you will be asked for brief comments - at a later stage you will be given the opportunity to provide a more detailed written account of your views

Notes on the Application Form
Please note the application form is for each individual resident not 1 per household
You only have 500 words for your comments - so you need to be brief and to the point
The form states that if you do not make reference to a particular point or issue YOU are concerned about at this stage you will not be able to comment on that topic at any later stage - including the detailed written account - and/or any hearings
The form states your registration may be rejected if your comments are vexatious or frivolous. We would recommend keeping comments factual and brief.

The Society, as previously stated, whilst supporting local solutions for dealing with residual waste (that left after recycling etc), is opposed to this unsustainable giant commercial facility being sited at this location and will be both registering and making detailed representation. See previous item for details and document and respresentation libary for the outline issues we submiitted as part of WSDS registration. .

We would strongly suggest that residents in both Central Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire consider this application and register to make their views known as this facility will have a considerable impact on the wider area due both to the effect of transportation of waste by road, and as the location is used as an amenity used by people from the wider area.
