Southampton Lib Dems say no to Biomass Plant
March 29, 2011 5:34 PM
Southampton City Council Liberal Democrat councillors are unanimously opposed to the proposed Helius Biomass plant.
We believe dependence on imported fuel makes the enviromental, carbon reduction, balance highly questionable and potentially negative in view of the volumes of material required, transportation impact and potential interruption of supplies.
In the absence of connection to Combined Heat and Power the benefit to Southampton residents and their environment is likely to be negligible.
The massing and design of the proposed plant is an eyesore and a blot on the landscapre for a significant number of residents.
We are therfore committed to campaigning against the scheme, including opposing the planning application."
