Veolia application

The Parish Council has received a letter from Froyle Parish Council about the application that Veolia has made to demolish the existing Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) in Alton and replace it with an Advanced Energy Recovery Facility (AERF). The proposed Alton AERF would be located in the unspoilt countryside of the upper Wey Valley within 1 mile of the South Downs National Park. The building will be 40m high, with 80m chimneys, visible from miles away, compared to the max 15m height of the MRF, burn 330,00 tonnes of waste per year and emit a similar amount of CO2. They are asking for the Council and others to consider submitting an objection.
