Waste recycling planning application

Dear local resident

You will be interested in this if you live near the Old Kent Road or on roads leading through surrounding neighbourhoods to the Old Kent Road.
See information below from residents who live near the proposed waste recycling plant to be located on or adjacent to the gas works site on the Old Kent Road. They draw attention to what they say will be harmful affects for their neighbourhood and that the deadline for comments and objections to the planning application is 7th November 2008.

OBJECTIONS/COMMENTS should be emailed:
TO: Helen.Goulden@southwark.gov.uk, planning.applications@southwark.gov.uk
quoting: Ref Applications: 08/AP/2209 and 08-CO-0076.

WASTE MANAGEMENT PROPOSALS WILL IMPACT ON OUR AREA
For nearly 3 years, Southwark Council have been planning to build a huge waste management facility near our homes. Recently, they published their plans and we have realised the massive impact they will have on all of us. The Council’s own proposals tell us that they include:

On Old Kent Road:
* Removing the bus stops near ‘Toys ‘R’ Us’
* Removing a pedestrian crossing and narrowing the pavements near the site – increasing the risks to pedestrians (including children to and from school)
* Up to 1200 extra vehicles on surrounding roads every day – that’s 1 a minute!
* Even longer delays to bus journeys, and further to walk to the bus-stop

On Asylum Road:
* One of the main access roads to the site
* Noisy lorries using Asylum Road from 6am, 7 days a week
* Probable removal of all car parking on Asylum Road.
* Congestion – at least 15 cars queuing to use the junction with Old Kent Road.
* Greater than 90% traffic saturation on Asylum road.
* Risk of subsidence to properties along Asylum Road.
* Diversion of traffic from nearby roads (alteration to Commercial Way access)

WHAT COULD THIS MEAN FOR ME…?
* traffic congestion and extra vehicle noise and fumes pollution
* Industrial site pollution (Noise, Bio-aerosol/particle – SMELLS and GERMS)
* Danger to pedestrians and road users, car parking spaces removed
* Potential health risks of the site on local residents/workers/school children
* Negative effect on house prices

WE CANNOT LET THIS HAPPEN ! IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO COMPLAIN AGAINST THE COUNCIL’S PLANS, PLEASE E-MAIL THE COUNCIL URGENTLY BEFORE 07.11.08 [see contact details above]

Further information from us at: info@grenierresidents.co.uk

The Industrial Site will be run by a commercial company VEOLIA whose aim will be to make as much profit as possible and obviously increase its workload which will have drastic consequences for us all residents.
