According to the news today the Incinerator/energy generator planning application has been given the go ahead by Bradford Council. Have to admit, I didn't know anything about it. Not sure that it will have any impact on Burley.

Stray FM story today:
Incinerator fumes could reach Ilkley Moor
"Campaigners claim pollution from a proposed incinerator in Keighley could reach Ilkley Moor, as well as parts of Harrogate and Craven.
Bradford Council approved plans for the development in the Aire Valley in February.
The Aire Valley Against Incineration group say they're continuing their opposition campaign, despite the decision.
More than 7,500 people have now signed their petition, and they've asked the Secretary of State to call in the decision."
The pollution from diesel vehicles at street level is more damaging to peoples health & wellbeing, than a bit of smoke from this incinerator/energy generator.

Whose crap are they going to burn? If they are shipping it in from elsewhere then its an issue, but if its our own carcinogenic material then we should be breathing in the toxins associated with it, rather than sending it to some third world area like Doncaster and inflicting it on their populace. Maybe we could bury it and risk poisoning the water supply. I
Ive seen these installations in the heart of towns, they create energy from the detritus of the population, thats a good thing. If individuals in society took ownership of their personal waste, and minimised it, there wouldn't be an issue.
