The Stop the Incinerator campaign is a non-political cross-community campaign to oppose the regional waste site and incinerator proposed for Rivenhall Airfield, which is a site in open countryside with villages around it. These include Rivenhall, Silver End, Cressing, Bradwell, Coggeshall, Feering and Kelvedon. Witham could also be affected. The main issues are:

A second period of consultation is taking place and January 21st is the deadline to send in representations to Essex County Council regarding the Regional Waste Site and Incinerator planned for Rivenhall Airfield - less than 1 mile from Silver End. The Stop the Incinerator campaign is once again contacting local residents to encourage them to make representations. So far there have been over 600 objections from residents, councils and organisations to the planning application. The current consultation started just before Christmas and letters of complaint have been sent to Essex County Council asking why it consulted at this time and asking for a compensatory extention period, which has so far been refused.
The deadline for responses to the latest consultation is Thursday 22nd January - so there is still time to get objections in and to encourage friends and family to do so too.
Please find attached our briefing note again for information. (Click to download it as a Word Document or a PDF.) Since that was published, further discrepencies have been found in the HGV traffic projections from the developer - and all of them point to more than the stated 404 per day. For example, the loads each HGV would carry assumed in the eRCF date for inbound household waste are about double what an actual, large council refuse lorry can carry (real figures obtained from BDC).
We have distributed about 1500 leaflets in the short time available to parts of the villages around the airfield and a number of campaign supporters printed off the briefing notes and took them round too.
The latest updates are as follows:
We will keep you posted !
Thanks as ever for everyone's help and support and particular thanks for the many helpful financial donations.
Please act on this soon as thanks to ECC deciding to consult on the further planning application information over Christmas and New Year we only now have a few weeks to respond!
Due to the short time available, we are not going to attempt to re-leaflet the whole area, so please see advice in the Briefing about local leafletting. We will however be attempting to re-leaflet the whole of Silver End. If anyone can help with roads in Silver End, please get in touch.
Thanks as ever for everyone's help and support
