Veolia - A proposal for a new Advanced Energy Recovery Facility in Alton

Bentley Public meeting

Veolia is seeking to apply for planning permission to redevelop its existing site near Alton.

 Veolia plans to redevelop their existing waste management facility on the A31 to an AERF – an incinerator that burns waste to generate electricity. Veolia are holding a public consultation events in Alton on the 2nd March, Holybourne on the 3rd March, Binsted on the 4th March and Froyle on the 9th March.  We are pleased to say that we have now been able to agree a public meeting and exhibition in Bentley with Veolia and this will take place on Tuesday 10th March, at the Kingsmill Pavilion in School Lane, between 1pm and 5.45pm.  

The new facility will be significantly larger than the existing waste management plant and in addition it will have two 90m chimneys each roughly the height of the Big Ben tower, upwind of the village. We are busy gathering information on how best to address this proposal, with a view to forming a working group with other local Councils.

It is important to make a response to have our collective voice heard and the Parish Council are keen to collect these responses, both positive or negative, so that we can go forward with a clear mandate from the community.  Please try to attend one of the public consultations, especially the one in Bentley.  Veolia have given a date for responses of the 16th March - please use their email option given on their leaflet - uk.alton.planning.proposal@veolia.com and copy in the Parish Council:  clerk@bentleyparishcouncil.co.uk.
