Anthony O’Connor Application – Making it Public – Take Action Now – Dealine for Objections “APRIL 7th”

For those who aren’t aware which is probably most people, Anthony O’Connor, the owner of the land next door to the Sky Properties site has put a planning application
in to change the use of his premises to a “Waste Transfer Facility”. Are you as shocked as we were?  See more details below.

Key Considerations:
• Stock pile of 40,000 tonnes
• 200,000 tonnes per year
• HGVs to support 200,000 tonnes of waste
• Dust
• Environmental impact
• Open from 6.30 till as late as 9pm
• Further Effect on property Values

We have received no consultation on this and had heard nothing about it until one of our vigilant members found it on the list of submitted applications at the Salford City Council website. What the application proposes is changing the use of the land to become a heavy industrial processing centre for demolition waste.

If this goes ahead, it is a foot in the door for waste processing and heavy industrial activity on Green Lane. This could support the Sky ECO dump proposal and also make it much more difficult to ensure that the Mitchell & Shackleton site and surrounding areas are re-designated by the council for more appropriate uses in future. If it’s inappropriate on the Mitchell Site, it’s inappropriate next door to it. Let’s get this stopped.

    I am an ex employee of the ROF that was once just down the road from the proposed site.. Having something like this in such an enclosed area and also so close to the M602 could be a disaster locally.. These incinerators don’t just do common waste but can also be used for Chemical wastes too.. so Toxic fumes could also be a huge health problem.
    One area that needs to be addressed is to the type[s] of waste to be incinerated..!
    And Guarantees for the future operations of such a site.

    With such a huge industrial sites, Trafford Park and Carrington it is amazing they are even considering locating any of these schemes between two residential areas. I hope the local councillors will be fighting on behalf of the local residents to ensure this and the incincerator schemes are scrapped. Power to the people.
