2 Mr Michael Symes 97 Trafalgar Road, Horsham, RH12 2QL Object 19-MAR-2018 I object to the proposed incinerator as I believe it discourages recycling and it is not the answer to reducing pollution.

Dioxins in the air are harmful and ash waste is also dangerous.

3 Dr Richard Coldicott St. Mark¿s House, North Heath lane, Horsham, RH12 5PJ Object 19-MAR-2018 In relation to planning application WSCC/015/18/NH,  I would like to register my objection to the application by Britaniacrest Recycling Ltd to build a recycling, recovery and renewable energy facility and ancillary infrastructure on Langhurstwood Road. I believe the siting of this major recycling and incinerator plant so close to the new Liberty Property Trust housing development and the existing housing in North Horsham is wholly inappropriate, when we know the increase in pollutant levels (albeit within present EU guideline) will increase the incident rates of asthmatic attacks for those with existing breathing issues. As the church minister for the Parish of Holbrook I have many worried parishioners who are concerned about the effects such a plant will have on their quality of life. Indeed at the recent event in the North Horsham Parish Council building, a member of the Britaniacrest Team conceded that if inhaler users just used their inhalers more often there would be no problem.  As an asthmatic myself I think such an answer is not acceptable.  I agree with the need for better recycling facilities but a coastal location where the prevailing winds will carry the nitrous oxides away from shore is preferable.

As someone who has a Doctorate in Chemistry I know full well the affects that these pollutants have on breathing and feel the council must reject this proposal for the sake of all who might be affected both in the short and long term by this unwelcome proposal.

Yours sincerely,

Revd Dr Richard Coldicott
Vicar of St. Mark¿s, Parish of Holbrook

4  Wendy Allen - Object 19-MAR-2018 I am writing to object to the plans for an incinerator at Horsham.  Waste is being reduced with more being recycled. It is not good forward planning to build an incinerator at this time. Concerns about air pollution are one reason and questions about the need for it are another. The size also seems excessive. There is feeling among MPs that we need a moratorium on building incinerators.

Yours faithfully,
Wendy Allen MA, MRSB

5  Jennifer Barraclough - Comment Made 19-MAR-2018 I'm not actually objecting to having an incinerator near my home. As I have the awful smell from the tip already where I live and the lorries clogging up the A264 I would like to know if any other sites which are more easily accessible have been looked at and for what reason they were rejected.

It seems ridiculous to me to put it where the tip site already causes local problems and other sites like Hop Oast are already taking large vehicles with easy access from the duel carriageway.

I acknowledge I'm coming to the problem without first getting the full facts but when the media seem so against the proposed site they don't seem to give a balanced argument.

Horsham and Southwater have suffered enough in the name of progress. Please don't denegrade our once green and pleasant area with the development of an incinerator. Our air pollution because of the unique geography is one of the highest already, coupled with the proximity to Gatwick.
No more please! Asthma incidence is too high. The health and overdevelopment issues out weigh any benefits. Stop!

11 Mr Daniel Stevens 86, Littlehaven Lane, Horsham, RH12 4JB Object 20-MAR-2018 Air quality and road infrastructure - objections are made upon. Y
12   Mr David Munden Henley¿s Barn, Station Rd, Warnham, West Sussex, RH12 3SP Object 20-MAR-2018 The size and scale of this building is totally inappropriate for the proposed site. It is the size of a small Power Station and because it is so large it seems Brittaniacrest havnt even attempted to landscape it into the surrounding countryside.
As my property is so close to the site I will look out of my east facing windows directly onto what can only be described as a monstrous carbuncle in what at present is beautiful Sussex countryside. The couple of industrial sites  that are in the locality have been symphateclally designed into the surrounding rural landscape.Not so this structure as it¿s chimney is so tall you¿d need a forest of 1000yr old Redwoods to screen it out.
The current Brickyard pumps out plumes regularly throughout the night, has any thought been given to the combined pollution this will cause if this is going to be running 24/7 as suggested  as I understand the infant mortality studies have not been conclusive and if there is any element of doubt then this  sort of plant should be kicked right into touch in this sort of location especially as there is about to be 2500 new builds and school  right in its shadow..
An industrial estate in a  coastal area would be a far more appropriate place and I¿m not taking the WSCC Chichester¿s approach of support for a site ¿just not in my back yard ¿this just logically makes more sense with a 20mile fallout range a good proportion of which would be out to sea.

15 Mrs Emma Alldridge 11, Kempshott Road, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 2EX Object 21-MAR-2018 I object to the building of the Britannia recycle and waste facility on the old brickworks.  I object because although it states it will recycle the size of the recycling plant is very small compared to the actual size of the plant.  The boiler rooms are double the size.  
Horsham does not need a waste facility of this size.  The waste that will be burnt here will decrease the air quality for the people and wildlife of Horsham.  Environmentally we should be changing the way we view waste and encouraging recycling not burning of waste.
The chimney will be visible to all areas in an area of natural beauty.  The wildlife surrounding the area will be affected and decrease in all areas.
The extra trucks on the road will increase the traffic to an area that is already planning on building extra homes and where the current main road cannot cope with the amount of traffic already it.

16 Mrs Beverley Evans Tillington Cottage, Farthings Walk, Horsham, Horsham, West sussex, Rh12 1wr Object 21-MAR-2018 Dear Sir,

17 Ms Angela Simms 4, Statuion Road, Warnham, RH12 3SR Concern Raised 21-MAR-2018 Hi,
I am a resident of Station Road, Warnham, and am very disappointed at the incredibly short time we are being given to look at this application.
Please could you consider an extension to allow any interested parties to have a proper look at this information. This is a planning decision that could affect Horsham for years to come and needs to be given adequate consideration. At the moment this process seems to only benefit those submitting the application who have had months to put together their planning pack.
Thank you,

18 Mr Philip Davey 32, Charrington Way, Broadbridge Heath, Horsham, RH12 3TH Support 21-MAR-2018 I fully support the application for a recycling and energy generation facility; WSCC/015/18/NH - Former Wealden Brickworks, Langhurstwood Road, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 4QD
It is time that we stopped sweeping our rubbish under the carpet of the countryside.
The ever growing mountain of landfill rubbish at Langhurstwood, Warnham will in time be a shameful monument to our foolish decisions to bury our waste. Future generations will come to pay the price of these decisions and the lasting impact they have on pollution and unnecessary wastage of valuable countryside.
The site is out of town and perfectly suited considering previous land uses in the area.
Access to the site has been proven over the many years of usage for land-fill.
The buildings should blend in well and be in a great part hidden by the enormous waste mountain that has been growing bigger and taller over the last couple of decades.
Now is the perfect opportunity to start to incinerate waste with the fantastic by-product of electricity production.
If the process proves successful for commercial waste, hopefully those in authority will start to use it to dispose of domestic waste too and produce even more electricity.

19 Mr Simon Coles 22, Wagtail Close Concern Raised 21-MAR-2018 My Name is Simon Coles, My address is 22 wagtail Close, Horsham, RH125HL.
My comments are that this area in Horsham is under immense pressure for housing. With the new housing being agreed the last thing that is needed is a renewable energy facility and waste burning. I understand these things are needed but so are houses and housing and burning of waste should not be together. I think that the extra smell, smoke and blight on the landscape at a time when the space and resourcing is better used for housing is not a very good idea. The increased traffic bringing waste to the plant will also put extra stress on the road system.

Simon

20  Philip Kemp - Object 21-MAR-2018 Dear Sam

We have commented on this planning application several times. Our objections and the reasons for them have been registered at other stages and versions of this plan. We won¿t be participating or commenting again.  The planning application process is just too tiring. If the council want to register and acknowledge our views about any part of this application then they already have it. Repeated applications, withdrawals and amendments are just designed to frustrate local residents who, like me are fed up of the whole process. It¿s a bad application and should be refused.
Yours faithfully

22 Mr Alan Goddard 24, Speedwell Way, Horsham, RH12 5WA Object 21-MAR-2018 I am writing to object to the proposed extension of the Brittanniacrest site at Langhurstwood, to process waste with an incinerator. I understand that waste has to be processed but use of this technology puts a blight on those residents' lives living in the vicinity. I am complaining on the following grounds:

1. Environmental hazards. The process causes air pollution, of which we have plenty already given the amount of kerosene fall off from Gatwick and the pollution from the increased number of cars along the A24. The chimney height will ensure that this pollution is spread far and wide across Horsham and neighbouring Mole Valley.
2. Residents health. The resulting pollution from site traffic and the incinerator itself would be detrimental to residents' quality of life.
is also a suggested link between children's health and the onset of asthma and allergies related to air pollution and this would certainly be a worry.
3. Increased traffic. The processing would require more site vehicles accessing the site leading to an increase in road and site noise, and potential surface damage to the narrow lanes in the area.
4. Increased noise. The resulting noise from site traffic and the incinerator itself would increase and be detrimental to residents' quality of life.

The plans for the site are no more feasible than they were for Capel, just a couple of miles down the road; why not learn from that experience.
Y
23 Mrs Liz Goddard 24, Speedwell Way, Horsham, RH12 5WA Object 21-MAR-2018 I strongly object to the proposed development of the Brittanniacrest site at Wealden Works, to process waste with an incinerator. I understand that waste has to be processed but use of this dubious technology puts a blight on those residents' lives living in the vicinity. I am complaining on the following grounds:

1. Real Environmental hazards. The process causes air pollution, of which we have plenty already given the amount of kerosene fall off from Gatwick and the pollution from the increased number of cars along the A24 and 264. The chimney height will certainly ensure that this pollution is spread far and wide across Horsham (north  and town and district) and towards neighbouring Mole Valley.
2. Residents health. The resulting pollution from site traffic and the incinerator itself would be detrimental to residents' quality of life.
There is also a suggested link between children's health and the onset of asthma and allergies related to air pollution and this would certainly be a worry. New homes being built just along the way would be blighted too.
3. Increased hgv traffic. The processing would require more site vehicles accessing the site leading to an increase in road and site noise, and potential surface damage to the narrow lanes in the area.
4. Increased noise. The resulting noise from site traffic and the incinerator itself would increase and be detrimental to residents' quality of life.
5. Out of scale for the area. Why does this monstrous thing need to be in Horsham ?......its not our rubbish or our industrial waste....so why dump it and burn it here !

The plans for the site are no more feasible than they were for Capel, just a couple of miles down the road; why not learn from that experience.

Y
25 Mrs Lauren Hughes 11, Stoneybrook, Horsham, RH12 1UN Object 21-MAR-2018 I completely object to these proposed plans. Not only will it be a complete eyesore but, and this is my major concern, the fumes and pollution caused will significantly affect the air quality in the surrounding areas. We have no idea about the long term health effects of these fumes and they could cause a serious issue for those with existing respiratory issues. I'm disgusted that we are being made to object to this once again, when many people have already done so. Y
26 Mr Richard Smith 17, The Marches, Kingsfold, West Sussex, RH123SY Object 21-MAR-2018 Whilst there has been a reduction to the height of the facility, it¿s capacity and chimney height has not changed.
The facility is not of a scale not appropriate for its location,  remains a blight on the landscape.
This past winter with the cold climate has only strengthen the evidence of the pollution, and odours that the existing facilities impact to their surroundings.
With plans for all the new housing, schools and businesses to be built in near proximity, it is astonishing that such plans have been resubmitted with minimal consideration of the concerns expressed by the local residents and other stakeholders.
Horsham District Council are encouraging growth in recycling, incinerators are ¿waste hungry¿ to fuel the facility which is counter to this strategy, a flaw in my view for the scale of the facility required. It needs to be substantially scaled down and located to a more appropriate site location for such a 24/7 facility, with better access and importantly away from close proximity to population to mitigate risks to public health.
Whole issue of  3R plants is in question by the Government based on the present performances of several of these facilities that have come into service.
Y
27 Mr David Rann 5, Revell Drive, Fetcham, Surrey, KT22 9PS Object 21-MAR-2018 You may wonder why as I live in Surrey that I am objecting to the plan,why? My grandsons live next to this, and it is bad enough now with all the smell.
As a lay person I have looked at the plans and can not see anything that is different. When mother natures takes a turn foe the worse, and that can happen any time,Horsham could be covered in all the pollution from the site, also you have put forward plans to build a new estate right on top of it, that does not make sense, yes they are needed but not in a built up area that Horsham is becoming.

29 Ms Caroline Debansi 7, Station road, Warnham, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 3SR Object 22-MAR-2018 Regarding the proposed incinerator ref WSCC/015/18/N
It would be a terrible decision to site a large chimney the size of the Statue of Liberty so close to the residents of Horsham and Warnham. There is currently a rapidly growing drive from both the general public and commercial companies to reduce the overuse of plastics and consumer packaging and to increase recycling.   This means that less and less waste is being produced.  This proposed plant is so huge that it will have to ship waste from the entire country to keep itself going.  it seems incredulous that those in authority would consider allowing a private owned company to profiteer from an non commissioned unnecessary development at the expense of the residents of Horsham and Warnham.  It is unrealistic to believe that there will be no significant change in traffic as the reality is that there must be an increase in cars and an even bigger increase in lorries bringing waste from across the country if the incinerator is to be sustained. This would cause additional road noise on top of the noise from the incinerator itself to nearby residents and road safety issues to what is still a predominantly rural lane.  nearby residents do not wish to have the outlook of their homes blighted by a gargantuan chimney puffing out gases fumes, dust and emitting light pollution.  It will dominate the area being visible from leith hill one of our local well loved and visited beauty spots. The proposers seem to believe that it won¿t be noticeable, but this is not true at all as anyone local driving the A24 from Robin Hood roundabout could see it would dwarf the houses in station road. What about the historic moat that is nearby? And the new housing that is being built literally across the road? The size of this building and it¿s huge chimney will totally dominate the landscape and have a negative effect on the surrounding countryside. It is an undesirable and unsuitable use of a very small plot of land. Please do not put a quest for the private profit of one family before the well-being of nearby residents whose quality of living in this environment would be substantially impacted, and the health of all Horsham residents who live in the fall out zone from the plume. Not only would this incinerator be a blight on the beautiful market town of Horsham It would also be a huge step backwards from the direction we should be taking to promote the reduction of waste production and a cleaner, environmentally friendlier source of energy production, a direction I hope the council will follow.

30 Ms Sylvia Baumgartner 1, Tullett Way, Horsham, RH12 3UD Object 22-MAR-2018 I refer to the above, and to my previous correspondence, where I not only said `No¿ to the planning permission request for WSCC/062/NH, but also voiced my concern that it seemed that the Planners are undertaking the consultation process, despite the extensive Objections and Reservations raised in the original process (as well as the second process).  To this end, I cannot understand why we (the tax paying residents of HDC), find ourselves with yet another request for planning.

What new evidence has really been provided, and how exactly does it stack up against every single concern and objection that was raised by the residence, unless the Council is unwilling to hear the residence.

It seems that the Planners are only focused on getting this Waste Incinerator plans passed, and we can only assume that this focus is financially driven, rather than what is good for the residence, the community, the environment and what is actually required in the Horsham area.  I submit my original objection below, where I said no to the Incinerator or Waste Plans.

To this end, I would like to ¿Say No¿ to the planning application for Reference WSCC/015/18/NH, essentially for most of the reasons mentioned in the email below:
Suitability of use for the area; ·   Layout/appearance/design of buildings;
·   Loss of light/outlook/privacy; ·   Traffic generation/access/highway safety;
·   Effect on historic features such as listed buildings/ conservation areas ·   Impact on natural environment including animals and their habitat;
·   Dust/odour/fumes; ·   Noise/disturbance;
·   Impact on trees/hedgerows; ·   Effect on landscape or character of area;

31 Mr James O'Loughlin 20, The Boulevard, Horsham, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 1EP Object 22-MAR-2018 I feel that the likely environmental impact from additional pollution is extremely undesirable. It represents both a health risk and in my opinion, the space could be used for other more environmentally friendly uses. Horsham is a growing town, the level of pollution from additional vehicles has grown exponentially and adding another source of pollution stands to further degrade air quality. Horsham should be focusing on driving positive growth from both business and residential means, and there are other industries that would do far better to improve the image of the town, the number of employment opportunities, all whilst ensuring that unnecessary increases in pollution through industry are minimised. The sorting and treatment of waste via ¿thermal sources¿ is not something I wish to have in/near the town I live. In addition, the height of the structure proposed also is entirely too tall for the local landscape and even with efforts to blend the appearance, I strongly believe the structure to be inappropriate and not in keeping with the surrounding area. Y
32 Mr John Evans 2, Graylands Farm Cottages, Langhurstwood Road, Horsham, RH12 4QD Object 22-MAR-2018 I Strongly object to the Planning application WSCC/006/18/NH Britaniacrest.
This is totally unsuitable for our area for many reasons.
1. Site line (outlook) of the chimney and smoke plume, with possible pollutants.
2.We live close to the proposed Plant and experience daily fumes, odours and dust from the Biffa Plant this will only get worse for us if this application goes ahead, I am at present commissioning a clean air survey close to our property the findings will follow, i I expect the air quality to be over the permitted directive. as my wife is an asthmatic this will be unacceptable.
3.The traffic will increase along Langhustwood Road I personally have seen a Britaniacrest vehicle depositing rubbish along the bypass and Langhurstwood Road . Please contact for further details Reg number and photo evidence.
4. There is no pedestrian walkways along langhurstwood Road making it extremely dangerous for pedestrians now.
5, we are concerned that the noise will be unacceptable as we already have a high degree of noise from the Biffa Plant which is a disturbance for us and our neighbours.

Would you kindly add my letter of 08/02/2018 regarding Planning applications WSCC/006//18NH and WSCC/028/16NH to this latest application.
Furthermore, I firmly believe that bearing in mind the  future LIBERTY TRUST development of thousands of houses which will be built nearby that, WSCC together with  HDC should seriously consider the closing down completely of the Wealden Works once and for all, because of emissions blighting the new development and nearby residential properties, plus the increase of extra heavy duty lorry movements giving  diesel emissions.

May be it is time to completely do away with this sought of traffic and polution in this particular area of West Sussex.

The noise levels and extra transport coming into the local community is not conjusive to our health nor our mental wellbeing when trying to already travel on busy roads to work.

I¿m writing to object strongly to this giant chimney.

Why put this  next to new massive housing estate where pollution from the bypass will be bad enough anyway from traffic.  This road does not need any more traffic especially huge lorries of rubbish.  Fresh air is not going to come out of this chimney apart from being an eye sore for the edge of Horsham.  Planning is a joke round here we have so many examples of bad decisions which have ruined Horsham.

Totally in the wrong place where people live.  The smell is bad enough from the huge mountain at Langhurst.

Wrong, wrong.

42 Mrs Anya King Glenwood, 56, Churchill Way, Broadbridge Heath, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 3TZ Object 23-MAR-2018 I object to this project on the following grounds - please note these are not in priority order:

Suitability of use for the area - Horsham has huge investment in home building and the town is very much a community area.  This development is not suitable to be placed so close to households and I am surprised Horsham are even considering it.

Traffic generation/access/highway safety - industrial traffic will dramatically increase which are not suitable for the roads that lead in and out of Horsham - especially the A24.  it will be dangerous as the roads are not designed to accommodate large vehicles on this scale, and heavily affect the local community in terms of increased traffic, will be highly dangerous to cyclists again due to the nature of the roads.

Dust/odour/fumes - the fumes will be intolerable and as it is being proposed to be located so close to living accommodation, will affect health.  There will also be odour - this is an outdoor community - and quality of life will be heavily affected.

Noise/disturbance - again large volumes of industrial vehicles thundering through the roads will cause a disturbance

Effect on landscape or character of area - Even though the new proposal sees a minor high adjustment in the tower, it is still very high.  It will dominate the landscape . It will end up being the marker for Horsham - "Oh we must be at Horsham - there is the incinerator tower"!!!!!  Very unsightly and not in keeping with the vision and expectation of the landscape of Horsham.

50 Mrs Gillian White 45, Treadcroft Drive, Horsham, RH12 4BG Concern Raised 24-MAR-2018 I am concerned about the damage to the North Horsham area that this will bring in terms of about the extra traffic and the safety of the road, the environmental damage that the incineration will bring in terms of fumes from the structure and the traffic, the over development of the the North Horsham area which could lead to flooding, the effect on the wildlife in the area that this development in addition to the Liberty housing one will cause  and visual impact on the area Y
51 Ms Kim Pompilii 143, Pondtail Road, Horsham, RH12 5HT Object 24-MAR-2018 This revised plan is still unsuitable for the residential area near to a nature reserve. It will be a blot on the landscape destroying the look of the local environment. It will also bring the prosessing of toxic materials into a residential area with a significant increase in heavy lorries running on diesal coming to and from the site impacting on the traffic which is already under pressure because of the significant housebuilding in the area.  There is no demand for this additional plant and it is an unwanted and unnecessary development in a residential area which is struggling to cope with the additional housing development and which would further ruin what is left of the free space in the area. This development will increase pollution and decrease air quality for local inhabitants and is a health hazard. Y
52 Mrs Jacqueline Birch Lower Chickens Farm, Dorking Road, Warnham, Horsham, RH12 3RY Object 25-MAR-2018 I strongly object to this planning application and ask that it be rejected in full based on the following:

(i) The size of the building and the chimney is excessive and will be way above the natural tree canopy to be seen for miles. It is not in keeping with the local countryside area and will negatively impact the views and landscape (including conservation and areas of outstanding beauty) and completely destroy the visual affect of the local and surounding area for many miles.
(ii) The pollution from the chimney will be toxic (due to the 24/7 burning of industrial waste and toxic materials) and hazardous in a populated area. The plume will carry for miles and have a huge negative health impact on the local population and the wider area.
(iii) Excessive lighting will be needed 24 hrs a day 7 days a week due to it's vicinity to Gatwick airport. This will cause a huge negative impact on light pollution in the local area and to local residents.
(iv) the additional noise due the plant running 24/7 will cause poor quality of life and have a huge negative impact on the local residents and wider area for miles, there will be no respite.
(v) Traffic in the local will increase due to the additional vehicles required to service the facility. The road infrastructure is not sufficient to cope with the additional burden of the increased vehicles. There has been a high rate of housing development in the area which is already causing a strain on the road infrastructure.

The facility will have a huge negative impact on the residents quality of life and local area causing Horsham to be a very undesirable area to live, this will result in the economic loss to businesses in the area. This facility is not part of the WSCC waste plan and therefore I would seriously challange WSCC motives if this planning was to be granted as there are no benefits to the area. Further the introduction of this facility is contrary to central governments recycling plan where it has already been evidenced that the current incinerator facilities in the UK are not running to capacity therefore why do we need more to be built to the huge detriment to the local area, residents and the environment including the decline of wildlife and areas of beauty.

53 Mr Ian & Mrs Jane Smith 3, Westons Close, Pondtail Drive, Horsham, RH12 5JA Object 25-MAR-2018 25 March 2018

Dear Sirs

We live in Westons Close which is very close to the A264 opposite Langhurstwood Road.

I wish to object to the proposed Incinerator at the Brickworks off the A264 close to Warnham Station for the following reasons:-

1.  Pollution from the 7 day a week road traffic from the tipper lorries delivering waste to the proposed Incinerator.
2.  Making the roads around the area very busy, especially along Langhurstwood Road.
3.  Pollution and odour that would be created by the Incinerator near the populated area of north Horsham, surrounding areas and eventually the proposed Liberty Development of 2,500 homes.
4.  We are very concerned about the actual size of the Incinerator building and chimney/flue which would be illuminated at night and would create light pollution and be out of character with the surrounding countryside and the Horsham area generally.
5.  Noise pollution from heavy goods vehicles approaching, entering and leaving the Incinerator site.
6.  Noise pollution from the Incinerator itself 24/7.
7.  There appears to be plenty of space for more landfill off Langhurstwood Road, ie. the old brickwork quarries making an incinerator unnecessary.
8.  There was a proposed Incinerator 10 years ago, or more, in Langhurstwood Road,  and this was rejected so why is there another much larger Incinerator being proposed now?
9.  We visited the latest exhibition by Britannia Crest in January and found most things the same as last year¿s application, apart from the roof design.  Also we have seen other projects similar to this, ie. off Beddington Lane in Croydon and they are built away from residential areas.

We were horrified to hear of this proposed Incinerator and cannot understand why this site has been suggested.  The impact on the immediate surrounding area and local villages would be extremely detrimental to the countryside and local population resulting from the huge size of the Incinerator and accompanying buildings, the light pollution, intrusive noise,  and the inevitable odour.   We therefore strongly object to this proposal.

Yours faithfully
Ian and Jane Smith

55 Mr Jane Brockwell 47, 47, Broome Close, Horsham, RH12 5XG Object 25-MAR-2018 After attending the exhibition that Britaniacrest had in Roffey, which was only available for a very short amount of time and having seen all the details that they had on display i wish to object on a number of grounds.
There is no need for an incinerator when the recycling rates are increasing in the area, so will it turn out that we have an incinerator built in the area which will become redundant by the time it is completed.
The area is not suitable on a number of levels, Langhurstwood Road is not a very big road that already takes lorries going to the landfill and brick works, considering there are no pavements this makes walking along this road hazardous and the amount of dirt that comes off the lorries covers the verges, cars and blocks the drains.
Access from the bypass onto Langhurstwood Road is already busy and this is a very fast road, so when a large lumbering lorry comes either of or onto the bypass it could be dangerous.
How do we know that the steam that will come out of the chimney will not smell and does not harm the ozone and environment.
The proposed site is on the edge of lovely countryside and there will be a very large building on the site with an extremely high chimney which will be seen for  many miles.
There will no doubt be an impact on the wildlife.
Y
56 Mr and Mrs Simmans 1, Dutchells Copse, Horsham, RH12 5PD Concern Raised 26-MAR-2018 We live in North Horsham and as such are already affected time to time by smells and HGV traffic from the current Incinerator facilities.

North Horsham is now going to have significant housing developments very close to the proposed site ¿ fumes, traffic as well as the danger of hazardous materials being blown over large populations of people must surely make this proposal a very unsafe and foolish proposal. It makes no sense to have increased fumes / accidental spillage / HGV Lorries / Noise / night lighting / hideous buildings and chimneys in this area where more and more people are going to Live.

I understand the plan is to build a commercial waste processing plant ¿ thus it is not designed to process local waste but to process waste imported from a much wider area. Building this near a large population is not the right thing to do ¿ as it is serving a wider area it can be in a more remote location where the risks and disturbance will not affect a large number of people.

This will increase traffic in what is already a congested area in rush hour and with the planned Housing Developments is going to become massively congested all the time! Having large lorries importing waste from other parts of the South East is going to severely affect this.

The site is going to be large and unsightly ¿ affecting local villages and residents ¿ the chimney in particular is going to be visible from a long distance away.

There is always a risk of accidental spillage / fumes of dangerous chemicals from a plant of this sort ¿ building it this close to large numbers of residents is not right.

It is not far from Warnham Nature Reserve and is planned to be in the valley of the stream (Boldings Brook) that feeds the reserve and then goes on to run around and through Horsham. This is a key local amenity used by large numbers of Horsham residents and putting this stream at risk is unacceptable.

We need to put Commercial Incinerators in locations positioned well away from large populations and where the risk of spillage or fumes are not going to endanger people or the environment.

Kind regards

Andrew Simmans

58 Mrs Elizabeth Allcott 58, Tillets Lane, Horsham, Warnham, West Sussex, RH12 3RD Object 26-MAR-2018 I strongly oppose this application and ask WSCC to reject it fully.

The proposed facility is far too big and will obstruct views in conservation and areas of outstanding beauty for miles. It is not in keeping with the local area/ environment and will look completely out of place, negatively impacting the local countryside and local residents views and neigbourhood. The size is excessive and can not be unseen or hidden in any way.
The facility will be generating toxic fumes from its excessively sized chimney causing health concerns in many local communities, local wildlife will be negatively impacted and because of the excessive polution coming from this facility Horsham will become an undesirable area to live in when currently it is ranked as one of the highest in the country leading to a decline in the local economy and businesses.
The facility will generate additional traffic to an already overused road network, due to the volume of additional lorries bringing rubbish to feed the facility.
Light pollution will increase to unaceptable levels and local communities will be forced to endure the lighting from the facility 24/7 due to its proximity to Gatwick Airport, this  along with the noise the facility will generate from the incinerator and vehicle noise will negatively impact the quality of life for local communities.
The facility is a private venture for profit and not part of local waste plans and is in volation of central Government plans for an increase in recycling, rather than burning.This facility will have a huge negative impact on the environment and the local communities and I can not see why WSCC would allow this planning application to be accepted and I respectfully ask that it is rejected in it entirety.

Proposal Recycling, Recovery and Renewable Energy Facility and
Ancillary Infrastructure
Applicant Britaniacrest Recycling Limited
Grid Reference 517406 134152

The Dorking & District Preservation Society Planning Committee is very concerned regarding this planning application for a recycling, recovery and renewable energy facility and ancillary infrastructure and continue to object to the proposed construction as it maintains a large construction set in a tranquil rural and agricultural area. The building once constructed is likely to still be visible from a great area of West Sussex and Surrey. The layout, appearance and design of buildings do not match the environment currently there on the fringes of Crawley and Horsham.

There will no doubt be a loss of light and increased pollution to the surrounding area that will affect those homes which are currently being erected for the residents to enjoy the countryside and fresh air available to all. Needless to say, the traffic generated not only during construction but also by the vehicles carrying in waste and taking away the spoil left by the constant burning will have an impact on the local countryside which could affect safety and access to all who will eventually dwell within the area of the site for the proposed incinerator.

Is the proposal of the applicant and the local authority to impact on our natural environment including animal and fauna to be contaminated by the incinerator chimney continually throwing out dust, fumes and putrid odour for the local inhabitants to become affected and cause health problems to both the young and the old in particular.

Today there are more results being distributed and advertised saying how harmful these monsters can be those who live near to an incinerator and the effect it will have long term to the landscape and character of the vicinity. As we know from scientific evidence the trees generally part of our landscape is becoming diseased and fragile - not only Elm but also Ash, Oak and laurel. We must care of land and conserve what we can ¿ think of the current situation with plastic and the Blue Planet has shown.

West Sussex is worth keeping and nurturing ¿ do NOT let it be harmed by monsters being built to rid us of our rubbish whilst we are all sitting back and letting it happen. Please consider the future as well as the present for all concerned.

Yours sincerely

The proposed site is near to the site where thousands of new homes are planned to be built. It couldn't be in a worse place. Who would want to live near such a monstrosity? How will an incinerator help with recycling targets? It will do the exact opposite. The roads are already falling to pieces. The additional heavy lorry traffic serving this proposed incinerator will only make that situation worse. The new housing development at North Horsham will already increase traffic greatly on the A264. The roads simply can't take any further addition particularly of such heavy lorry type traffic which will also increase pollution. This is a largely rural site and to have an industrial building of this height will be a serious blot on the landscape. The incinerator isn't needed and is certainly not welcome. Y

2) There will be increased light pollution from the air traffic lighting on the chimney
3) There will be air pollution from heavy vehicles transporting waste to the incinerator
4) The road network around the proposed site  is already heavily used  and the proposal will increase traffic to  this area. There will be more damage to the county's highways system from the frequent large vehicles therefore requiring more money from taxpayers to repair.

89   Mr Jon Durward 8, Nuthatch Way, Holbrook, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 5HN Object 27-MAR-2018 I strongly object to the creation of this incinerator site. My reasons for objection are several fold. The environmental impact through air polution, increased traffic to/from site, noise and visual aspect. The saturation of the locale through the North Horsham project combined with this incinerator will be too much for the area to holistically absorb. A recycling facility as there is at present without incineration is considerably better and in harmony with both central government and WSCC objectives, an incinerator of this scale and on this site is not. Having moved my wife and three daughters into the Horsham area just over one year ago, we are very happy here. One of my daughters and I are also asthma sufferers. This proposed development will no doubt have an impact upon our respiratory health. I strongly urge WSCC to reject this application based upon multiple grounds for objection from many concerned parties.

Respectfully submitted for your consideration.

94 Miss Hannah Louise Knipe 48, 48, Carter Drive, Broadbridge Heath, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 3GZ Object 27-MAR-2018 This incinerator is honestly one of the most embarrassingly poor ideas Horsham DC has had in a long while. Not only will the increased fumes from literal burnt waste (but also the increased congestion by large vehicles to and from it) eventually increase the risk of many individuals to respiratory issues, but this will result in a greater strain on Horsham¿s already stretched medical services.
Horsham are currently seeming to want to invest in a larger population with the mass building of houses, however what happens when this imposing structure is completed and potential new residents are put off and decide to move to a district who¿s council has more foresight that to build a dirty great rubbish incinerator?
Furthermore this is quite frankly insulting to the current residents of Horsham. After literally just reducing our refuse collections in an attempt to cut down on waste and improve recycling, you are deciding to build a waste incinerator. Is this not a highly counterintuitive action that will reduce people¿s willingness to recycle? Where will we be sourcing this waste from if you expect Horsham residents  to be producing so little that our bins only need collecting once a fortnight?  Will we be shipping in waste from worse offender towns? In which case they should really be the ones housing it if they will be the ones benefitting from this monstrosity.

Therefore overall I am objecting this obvious mistake on the grounds that:
-it is a very possible health problem waiting to happen
-it would be an unsightly stain on Horsham¿s classic countryside appeal
-it would put off current and potential residents
-it¿s completely against Horsham¿s new recycling policies
-it¿s apparently pointless as we don¿t create that much waste anyway according to HDC

Basically just do the obviously right thing, and don¿t embaress yourself by trying to convince yourself or anyone else that this would ever be sensible.

I am against the proposal for an incinerator to be built in Horsham.



We have the facts that show we need to do something different to reduce our waste materials as we are polluting the environment we live in.

We have facts that burning waste is neither economically or environmentally sound. I am aghast that this proposal has even manged to get this far.

Why are the council wasting time on a project which would damage not only the environment but also the people of Horsham and the reputation of a area of natural beauty. We should be investing our energy in education around reducing waste, including initiatives like recycling food waste to name but one. 

There are several studies which show that burning waste releases pollutants like mercury, dioxins, lead. Not only this but one can only assume that there will be lorry loads of waste coming in hour after hour with an increase in pollution from the lorries as well as further damage to the already dilapidated roads.  One of the reasons I moved to Horsham from London was to raise a family in an environment that would give them the best start in life. If you allow this monstrosity to be built, you will be responsible for polluting the air that I breathe that my family breathe and most likely if you live in the area your family,children and friends.

I am not a cynical man but I would question the ethics of any person or members of the council who would knowingly do this to the people they represent.  You work for the people of West Sussex and they have already said no to this. We are telling you not to build this, are you actually listening to the people of Horsham?? Please do not waste anymore of your time or our money on this project.

 

I have attached a report from the NTN in Australia it would make good reading for the council.

At present WSCC are leading the way with an increase of 2% for recycling, from 42% to 44% for 2016/17 - well above the national average and London so why allow an incinerator to be built when it can only lead to a reduction in recycling and tie the council up to incinerator contracts for years to come? An incinerator will have to be fed 24/7!

What of the air quality from congested roads, let alone the emissions from the chimney? Horsham Council already detail two areas of concern and Crawley has more.
Visual impacts - an industrial carbuncle on the rural landscape that will be seen by passing planes and from areas of outstanding natural beauty.
A chimney taller than Big Ben; the new slopping roof of the building does not hide its height or it's industrial form.
What about the new housing and schools being built by Liberty in the North Horsham development - they will receive the full effect of the smoke and the traffic - would you buy a house or want your children to go to a school there?

For these reasons I am firmly againstWSCC/HDC's published plans. The outcomes are extremely worrying:

- Increased pollution across Horsham putting lives of ourselves and our children at risk
- Doesn't help to meet counties recycling targets
- Light pollution from the air traffic lighting on the chimney
- Increased pollution from heavy vehicles transporting waste to the incinerator 24/7
- Increased damage to the county's highways system requiring more money from taxpayers to repair

100   Mr Matthew Horne 82, Hill Mead, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 2PX Object 27-MAR-2018 The new plan for an incinerator near Horsham has done nothing to address the concerns residents raised against the original application. Which leads me to suspect that Britaniacrest don't really care.

I object for a number of reasons:
1. We should be recycling, not burning our waste. We already have a recycling plant and Horsham itself has put a lot of time, effort and money into increasing household recycling and waste reduction. In order for the incinerator to be cost effective it will have to operate 24 hours a day seven days a week. It will reduce the effectiveness of our current recycling plant or worse make it redundant. In this environmentally driven day we must always place recycling above polluting the atmosphere.

2. The incinerator will require rubbish delivered from out of the area. This means constant increased traffic flows along the A264 and A24. Both roads are heavily congested at peak times already.

3. Air pollution. The incinerator will be burning industrial waste which will result in toxic pollution being spread over the town of Horsham and surrounds. Since the plant will be under the Gatwick runway landing flight path: low flying aircraft and down wash will mean spreading the pollution in unpredictable ways. There is no way at all for anyone to say it will be safe. What we don't need is a short term fix to a problem that can be solved better in other ways, while creating a long term health problem for the district. You don't need the council being sued 25 years down the line when the next generation grow up with health issues.

4. Eyesore, noise and smell. The tall chimney will need to be lit to prevent aircraft collisions. The increased traffic will cause non-stop noise pollution, which will have a serious effect on the local wildlife (they have a right to noise free nights too). And we'll have to contend with a new smell. I'm sure we'll become nose-blind eventually but I'm sure there will be visitors put off if we're known as a smelly town.

People choose to live in Horsham because it's a market town in the heart of the country. Shame that this reputation is slowly being wrecked by poor planning decisions.

As the mother of three young children, I am extremely alarmed that such a proposal could even be considered in such close proximity to a market town with such a rapidly expanding, young population. Increased pollution across Horsham puts the health and the lives of ourselves and our children at risk. Not to mention the light pollution that will emanate from the air traffic lighting on the chimney. Horsham will also suffer from the increased air pollution from heavy vehicles transporting waste to the incinerator 24/7, plus the inevitable damage to the county's highways system requiring more money from taxpayers to repair. What is the point of encouraging people to recycle and reuse their waste if we can just burn it with such impunity? Where is the incentive for manufacturers and retailers to modify and adapt their products and packaging to have less impact on the environment, if we continue to build incinerators? And what message are we giving to our children for the future, to place such little value on their health and well-being, whilst also demonstrating that it¿s fine, in 2018, for us to knowingly and intentionally pollute their environment? How can we possibly expect them to grow up as responsible custodians of their planet, when we set such a poor and lazy example?

The impact of the A264 and A24 on air quality is already noticeable, let alone wit additional traffic travelling to this site and the air pollution released from the incinerator.
I'm also worried about the increased traffic at what is already a very busy roundabout, and very close to the planned new housing development in North Horsham, which will also result in increased volume of traffic in this area. The infrastructure in the area is not equipped for all this traffic.
There are a number of other concerns and all of these will impact upon anyone residing in the new North Horsham housing development, which would also be unfair on the future residents.

107   Mr Kevin Tuck 127, Bennetts Road, Horsham, RH13 5JY Object 27-MAR-2018 Dear Sir / Madam,

I am writing to express my concerns and my objections to the proposal for construction of a new incinerator in the Horsham area. I think this is a very bad idea both in principle and for a whole plethora of reasons.

Firstly, why do we need a new incinerator when there is already over-capacity in the country? Surely a new incinerator will work against the Council's commendable policies on recycling, as it will reduce the perceived need to recycle.

Another important issue is the wear and tear on Horsham's roads and the increase in traffic congestion due to the number of lorries that will necessarily visit the site. Horsham has many roads that are already in need of repair and which, due to budgetary constraints, the Council is evidently struggling to maintain. The current great increase in building of new homes in the area will also add pressures to road usage. Exacerbating this by having an incinerator site as well that will attract many heavy lorries is extraordinarily contra-sensible.

Finally, the most worrying issue is that the health of adults and children living in the Horsham area could be compromised by the continual emissions from this incinerator. Who, honestly, would want to live under this continual particle plume?

Construction of a new incinerator in the Horsham area is just plain wrong-headed and I urge the Council to reject it utterly.

2) The risk of air pollution from the incinerator is too high, given the proximity of the existing built up area of Horsham and the proposed North Horsham development.

3) The lorry movements will put extra pressure on the increasingly busy A264 Horsham Northern bypass and the totally inadequate stretch of the A24 north of the Great Daux roundabout.

110 Mrs Claire Lyon 11, Trafalgar Road, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 2QD Object 27-MAR-2018 Horsham is quickly growing community with hundreds of new houses being built to accomodate its growing needs. A lot of the people moving to Horsham are starting families and will join the the thousands of families who already live here.

An incinerator in Horsham would drastically Increase pollution across Horsham putting lives of ourselves and our children at risk. I have a two-year old daughter and I am pregnant with my second and the news of this planning application is extremely worrying. We moved to Horsham three years ago and have met many people since who have also moved here recently and we all agree that it was because it has so much to offer. I can't imagine people will feel the same if we have an incinerator looming over us spitting out debris to rain down upon us.

Our county is already behind on its recycling targets, something myself and neighbours have been petitioning for and this will not help. By being behind on these targets is costing our council more and more money and rates have already gone up drastically in the last five years. Soon many people of this community will no longer be able to afford such rates.

There are also so many other factors to take in to account such as:

- Light pollution from the air traffic lighting on the chimney
- Increased pollution from heavy vehicles transporting waste to the incinerator 24/7
- Increased damage to the county's highways system

The incinerator hinders West Sussex County Council and Horsham District Council's plans, it doesn't help them.

117 Mrs Susan Taylor 23, Patchings, Horsham, RH13 5HJ Object 27-MAR-2018 The manufacture of clay bricks at the Wealden Brickworks resulted in massive excavations for the raw materials necessary..  The filling of these Borrow Pits was obviously needed on the closure of the Works to return the land to agriculture use.

Nobody in the local population envisaged that the creation of the Landfill Site would result in such a smelly blot on the landscape.

In my previous letters, I have complained about Brittania Crest Recycling Limited's inability to control the smell from the existing tip.  I am continually subjected to an unbelievable stench from this facility even though I live a good distance away.  Only last week at the end of the cold spell, we were subjected to our environmental space being polluted by the tip.

I feel that the Renewable Energy Facility is a change of use of this site which is totally unwarranted and does not follow the original intent of returning the land to agriculture use.

As regards the height of the Incinerator Chimney, it is obvious that this Plant will produce massive amounts of ash.  The tremendous height of the Chimney is needed, to reduce the parts per million to below international standards at ground level.  Common sense tells me, that hundreds of thousands of tonnes of rubbish burnt each year, will pollute my garden regardless of any scientific statistical calculation.

I feel my human rights to clean air and environmental space in my garden, to being free of unwanted carcinogenic material, is being ignored if this planning application is approved.

My previous letter also stated my concern of the affect on schools, hospital and other housing in Horsham that fall within the plume of this Chimney. This chimney has been forced to be so high, it needs safety lights to prevent accidents from low flying aircraft.

The proposed development includes a 95m-tall stack, which will dominate the surrounding landscape to a hugely disproportionate level, exceeding in height both Big Ben and the Statue of Liberty.  While those landmarks at least benefit their "local" community via tourism, this one appears to be part of a development intended to serve a wide area of Southern England by burning their waste, not just that of the surrounding area.

And yet it is the surrounding area who suffer the detriment, both of the permanent eye-sore of the stack, but perhaps more importantly, the inevitable noise and air pollution that such a development will generate.  With my own children attending a village school within a mile or so of this proposed development's site, my concern over this latter issue is not for my own health, but for that of the next generation, who have no say on this particular issue.

I would therefore strongly object to this proposal on environmental grounds, as well as the obvious detriment to the character of the local area.

As such, we believe the proposal seriously compromises those qualities for us and thousands of others. It appears the general wind direction is biased towards the South, i.e. Horsham town centre and other conservation areas/buildings and are extremely sceptical that odours and dangerous invisible gases and particulates are not going to have a detrimental impact on those areas. The quantity and claims of supporting reports and studies will mean little to the surrounding residence once its built and studies are either proved false, as is often the case, or rules are flaunted due to insufficient monitoring and policing. Why having attracted so many people to the area and built so much new housing would one want to ruin the charm and pride that folk have in their town and country side by effectively portraying Horsham as a big toxic rubbish dump. Who wants to look up from almost anywhere and see a large chimney let alone think of what we are breathing and eating. It will create a stigma that will be hard to overcome for years, not a legacy to be known for. Consider the community who need assurances about their ongoing quality of life over speculative commercial gain. There are undoubtedly more suitable sites for a proposal of this magnitude and impact.

Size is excessive and very tall -  will have major impact on Horsham and surrounding villages and potentially areas of outstanding natural beauty locally and Surrey.

Scale of plant suggests seeking waste from outside local area, encouraging commercial waste being transferred over great distance to feed a very large incinerator.

Proposals for waste development will be permitted provided that they are of high quality and, where appropriate, the scale, form, and design (including landscaping) take into account the need to: (a) integrate with and, where possible, enhance adjoining land-uses¿¿ (b) have regard to the local context including: (iii) the topography, landscape, townscape, streetscape and skyline of the surrounding area; (iv) views into and out of the site.
Britaniacrest proposal does not meet the criteria set out above.
Policy W19: Public Health and Amenity. Proposals for waste development will be permitted provided that: lighting, noise, dust, odours and other emissions ¿ are controlled to the extent that there will not be an unacceptable impact on public health and amenity.
Proposals will require aviation lighting as well as have a night-time noise impact on the neighbouring communities creating light pollution for the area.
2          Visual Impact of the development
Proposal does nothing to hide impact it will have on the rural countryside for which it will sit amongst, being totally over powering and intrusive day and night as it sits above the natural tree height canopy.
Intrusion of stack will be particularly intimidating at times when exhaust plumes are being emitted. Application documents state that the plume height could range from 6m to over 400m from the top of the 96m chimney.
3          Noise intrusion
At operational stage it is acknowledge in the application that at night, with low background noise levels, the noise exposure would be increased by 6dB at three locations. This would seem a significant increase in noise that local residents would have to tolerate.
4          The Environmental Arguments
Research increasingly indicates that incineration reduces recycling.
And, incineration plants in the EU are already being decommissioned because reduced availability of suitable waste has significantly reduced the amount of material available to fuel the burners.
Many countries now import material to incinerate.
With increased push in the UK to reduce our reliance on plastics and recycle more, many experts predict that within 5 years we will have solved the plastics issue. Industry is changing and will no longer rely on plastic packaging.
We already have surplus capacity for burning waste in the UK. Will West Sussex be left with a white elephant?

130 Mrs Jan Evans 2, Graylands Farm Cottages, Langhurstwood Road, Horsham, RH12 4QD Object 28-MAR-2018 1. Langhurstwood Road is a small rural road, with no street lights or pavements. It is currently used by Biffa, The brick works, Graylands Ind Estate and the offices. The traffic therefore is getting worse and worse. The current size of the lorries are huge and sometimes tehy have trouble passing each other. The added lorries that will be up and down this road will make it even more dangerous, noisy and add to the pollution.
2. There is nowhere for any vehicles to park in the case of a back load into the site.
3. There is a large amount of rubbish dropped from lorries currently and this will get worse. Because this road is dangerous the Council will only pick up the litter when the road is closed. This means there is a build up on the road, verges and our garden. Again this will get worse.
3. The photo's I have seen of the chimney, are not a true representation of what it will actually look like
4. The Chimney is going to operate 24/7, the noise will be heard all the time, along with the extra noise from the lorries. We will be unable to sit quietly in our garden and enjoy the peace we wanted when we moved here. Currently we cannot open our front windows due to the traffic noise
5. I suffer with asthma, and the added lorries and pollution will worsen my condition

This is my formal objection to the latest planning application for the Incinerator.
As a resident of Warnham, it will have a sever impact both visually and environmentally - including noise, emissions, traffic- on our lovely village and surrounding area.
Huge lorries will be trucking in commercial waste from all over the south east, creating yet more congestion on our over populated rural road network.
The 95m stack is taller than Big Ben and the Statue of Liberty and will be visible from a 15km radius- creating horrific pollution with untold long-term health implications.
This is totally unacceptable in such a heavily populated area- of which Warnham is also a Conservation area.
I am hugely concerned about a massive industrial scale incinerator and its emissions being produced 1 mile from my home and my child's school at Warnham.

I wish to object to the planning application listed above based on the following:
The A 264 road which leads to Langhurstwood Road is already a disgrace and frequently looks as if a Litter festival has taken place caused predominantly  by trucks Using the bio facility in the same vicinity One can only imagine the additional distress that will be caused to the environment if the planning application was to be approved  with the subsequent additional  truck Traffic.
Having recently returned from various locations I am ashamed of the current refuse in West Sussex generally and specifically on the A264.

The additional traffic is also likely to create huge traffic jams when linked with the new North Horsham housing and industrial development.  and theresulting  influx of cars.
I trust that WSCc will give due consideration to these issues and the beauty that SHOULD be seen in this county.

The fumes from this sites will have an impact on the whole of Horsham and the surrounding area depending on the direction of the wind.The hidden killer may be the fumes from the chimney which may be carcinogenic.Do we want to take this risk? This scheme should be opposed on health grounds, poor access, excess traffic and for causing localised rubbish pollution.With the new development and more lorries to the site the A264/A24 will grind to a halt.

There is also the question of lorries coming from far and wide and the extra pollution they will bring. As we know disel fumes are also a silent killer so why would Horsham want to increase the number of lorries in a concentrated area.
This proposal will also have an impact on the new development and make it a less attractive place to live. Proposed new schools are half a mile away. This will affect childrens health particularly as the prevailing wind is westerly.

Reference WSCC/015/18/NH - Incinerator Objection

Reference subject application I am herewith lodging my objection at the proposed application for building an incinerator in Horsham district. Labelling this a technology agnostic and not what is it is a deception of the highest order. It must be rectified immediately and the deadline extended so that the public are more fully aware what is being undertaken.

I fundamentally object to burning of material which is otherwise recyclable and would rather the planning department consider plan to cleanly re-process this waste rather than the making the ludicrous choice of approving this application. Is Horsham District going to be dispensing with recycling? Why would I  bother washing and separating recyclable material if you are just going to burn it? I will request council refuse department provide me another large waste bin and refuse to separate our household¿s recycling waste in the this event and will seek legal counsel should the council object to my request.

The increased risks in cancer, dioxin intake and general air pollution are well publicised and living, schooling and working in Horsham means my family and I will be exposed to this toxic mix on a near 24/7 basis. This is unacceptable.

I also offer specific comment on the following:

Non-compliance with West Sussex County Council¿s Waste Local Plan
The size of the incinerator is larger than that required for local use so apart from impacting the natural beauty of the surrounding area why is it so large? Are we going to be importing waste from the surrounding areas? Just how far out is the catchment area for this site and will it also process commercial waste? What types and what toxins can we expect to be exposed to?

Strategic Objective 11:
The roads in the surrounding area cannot handle increased heavy loads and the council can barely keep up with pothole repairs as it is without the additional traffic and congestion. How if this goes ahead will the council remain committed to this objective?

Policy W11: Character:
I remain sceptical that this policy can be achieved when the site will be in plain view of all the surrounding villages and possibly the west side of Horsham. Certainly the exhaust fumes will be seen by many more.

Policy W12: High Quality Developments:
Having viewed the plans this clearly has not been met.

Policy W19: Public Health and Amenity.
Given it¿s size the site will be require aviation lighting so that along with noise levels and light pollution the impact the local community will be sizeable.

Please confirm that this objection has been noted and link to verify.

151 Mr Ray Butler - Object 29-MAR-2018 Dear Sir/madam I write against the building of a tall incinerator at the former Wealden Brickworks, because;

1. Suitability of use for the area./Dust/ odour/fumes.    This would be sited not far from proposed massive development at North Horsham. The output or plume would affect the air quality for our new neighbours. The WHO say you should not build near people!

2. Traffic Generation.    Waste from other areas will be carried by HGV¿s around our roads and lanes belching out increased Co2 and Nox emissions.

3.Noise?disturbance/Effect on landscape  You have already developed so much of Horsham that it is losing its character. Even more large lorries and a permanently lit large tower will not enhance our lives one bit.
  It is quite obvious that this is unsuitable.

I understand that this is a private developer, for profit  and Horsham residents already funded a BIFFA treatment centre already!! THIS WASTE SHOULD BE RECYCLED NOT BURNT!

154   Mr Willem Human 13 Cook Way, 13, Cook Way, Horsham, Horsham, RH123US Object 29-MAR-2018 My wife and I are absolutely furious and we certainly do object to this planning application. We moved to Horsham 3 years ago away from London which is a big polluted city. I am an asthma sufferer and the clean air is one of the main reasons we moved to the countryside. Our kids are also at high risk of developing asthma during their childhood. Living next door to an industrial size incinerator has never been in our plans!!! This is simply outrageous. If somebody told us about the proposed incinerator being built in Horsham 3 years ago we would have never thought of moving into this area and buying our first home here using the government funded scheme Help to Buy.

The Horsham council has already let us down big time by promising a new school to be built in Wickhurst Green which still hasn't happened. The local Shelley Primary school is oversubscribed. One of our daughters had to be home schooled for 3 months because of that as my wife was not driving at that time and we couldn't accept a place in any other schools. And now we have to deal with another big problem - the incinerator which will burn everything that councils and private companies (and possibly other countries) pay them to incinerate.

This will cause an increased pollution from heavy vehicles transporting waste to the incinerator every day of the year. More lorries on our roads mean more road incidents as we all know how dangerously the lorries usually drive. My wife has nearly been killed by one of them on a big roundabout in Crawley recently. So I definitely don't want more lorries on our roads. You are putting our lives and the lives of our children at risk and if the incinerator is going to be built here we'd have to sell our house and move. This will cost us lots of money. This is simply not fair on us and the other local residents.

My wife and I demand that this application for the planning permission WSCC/015/18/NH is declined. Thank you.

157 Mr Steve Clarke 51, Sargent way, Horsham, West sussex, Rh123te Object 29-MAR-2018 As a relatively new resident of Horsham, I purchased a new build house for my family  in broadbridge heath, Horsham. When I purchased the property, at raised Horsham prices, I was not made aware of the proposed incinerator. The proximity and numerous effects of the incinerator will in my opinion reduce the saleability of my property and lower the value.
The pollution fallout from the incinerator will directly effect me and my three children. Broadbridge heath is a rapidly growing village in Horsham with over 1000 new houses. The smell and particle fallout will be breathed in daily by 1000s of children for generations to come which is unacceptable. I do not wish wscc to put my children¿s future health at risk.
The inicinerator is enormous and will be a blot on an otherwise beautiful rural landscape bordering a deer park and acres of green belt land.
It will lead to a massive increase in heavy traffic on roads that are already in disrepair. This will have to be funded by our council tax which I am not agreeing to. Wscc currently state that they cannot afford to build the proposed new school in broadbridge heath due to lack of funding. They were happy to agree to planning permission for 1000 houses but there¿s no money for all the extra children to go to school. Yet we are going to waste money on road repairs for an incinerator.
Horsham exceeds the national average for recycling. The incinerator is not for us, it will allow other failing counties to burn their waste. It will not efffect them, but it will effect us daily.
The aircraft warning lights on the tower will cause light pollution for those living near by.

I should object to the above application on the following :-


The World Health Organisation state that waste incinerator should not be populated.
                                                                                                         

The incinerator would be a white elephant before it is even commisioned.


The chimney would be 95m tall.


It would produce Co2 levels.


Waste will be transported by HGV  across county borders.

175  Brian and Janet Francis - Object 01-APR-2018 We wish to object in the strongest possible terms to the above planning application.

We live at Kingsfold which is on an elevated position above the proposed site for this incinerator.  The prevailing winds during the summer months are from the South, which would put our hamlet in direct line with the inevitable pollution which would be emitted from any chimney necessitated by such a "facility".  In our family alone we have several Asthma sufferers and inevitably there will be others with similar health issues.  Such a structure would surely lead to further health issues in the area.

We also live alongside the A24 which is well known as one of the most dangerous roads in Sussex.  The volume of traffic on this road is already high, a large proportion of which is huge lorries.  This road has needed improvement for many years.  It will be unable to cope with the extra lorries needed to deliver waste products to this proposed incinerator.

We also fear that any extra noise from this incinerator would funnel up the valley and cause further nuisance to the many people who live in it's path.

We hope you will take these objections into account and reject this application.

Brian and Janet Francis

I object to:

1. The citing of such a large scale Health hazard in close proximity to local residents, the numbers of which are due to rise substantially in the near future. Surely this breaches WHO guidelines?

2. The road access to this site in Langhurstwood Road is not suitable for HGVs. Even the current usage levels, for what is a country road, are deplorable and dangerous for local residents' vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists.  The road floods, is covered in mud and debris litters the hedgerows.

3. Doesn't incineration conflict with the WSCC's and Government's recycling policy?

4. This unsightly development would be a blight on the local landscape.

181  Wendy Allen - Object 02-APR-2018 Dear Sir,

I am writing to object to the plans for a new incinerator at Horsham. Burning rubbish is a retrograde step and pollutes the atmosphere which is bad for the health of residents. I understand it is so large that waste will be brought in from other areas to pollute our air. Since we already suffer from exhaust fumes from aircraft approaching and leaving Gatwick airport we have enough air pollution. Tall chimneys are all very well but they only spread the poisons further. The charm of Horsham is its country location which would be spoilt by the proposed incinerator.

I have recently moved to the area and so feel particularly strongly against the proposed development.

Yours faithfully,
Wendy Allen MA. MRSB

182 Mrs Wendy Fuller Badgers, Pondtail Close, Horsham, RH12 5HS Object 02-APR-2018 Due to HDC already agreeing to the large housing development in North Horsham, to which a large number of local residents objected to, and were overridden by HDC, so the last thing local people need is a renewable energy facility and waste burning incinerator. The traffic infrastructure already cannot cope with the large number of vehicles on the local roads A264/A24 and if Gatwick gets it's second runway, air pollution will be a major issue in the area. The local area does not need this kind of development and it will not be local waste that will be incinerated, it will be waste from far and wide.  At the moment Horsham is a very pleasant place to live and work, but it is slowing becoming an unpleasant place  due to all the developments being allowed by both HDC and WSCC. Y
183 Mrs C Porritt ., Barleycroft, Cowfold, Horsham, West Sussex, RH13 8DP Object 02-APR-2018 I write to formally object due to non-compliance with West Sussex County Council Waste Local Plan on 3 levels:

(i) Strategic Objective 5: To make provision for a new transfer, recycling and treatment facilities as close as possible to where waste arises.
If the monthly recycling figures for the area, as displayed at the amenity tip, are to be believed, around 75% of what Horsham residents bring to the tip is recyclable. So why does an industrial incinerator, of this magnitude, need to be built in a county that already has a good track record of recycling? This presumes that waste will need to be brought in from elsewhere to feed its appetite. And if the incinerator that's planned for Ford/Littlehampton goes ahead, why do we need 2 in the same county?

(ii) Strategic Objective 11: To protect and, where possible, enhance the natural and historic environment and resources of the County.
There's no protection or enhancement happening here, as the sheer size and scale of the incinerator will certainly ensure Horsham is on the map - but for totally the wrong reasons! The incinerator will be our legacy; our defining modern day addition to the "historic market town" local tourism badge we proudly promote.

(iii) Policy W19: Public Health and Amenity. Proposals for waste development will be permitted provided that: lighting, noise, dust, odours and other emissions are controlled to the extent that there will not be an unacceptable impact on public health and amenity.
In addition to the fact the incinerator will create light and noise pollution, vehicle emissions will increase county-wide as more industrial container lorries rumble on our roads to feed the incinerator. Many will have to come via Cowfold, which already has the worst pollution levels in the South East. What measures will be put in place to monitor such emissions in and around the site vicinity, especially with the cocktail of pollutants from aircraft added into the air mix?

(iv) Visual Impact of the development
The incinerator site will be visible from vantage points as far out as Lower Beeding, so it is going to stick out like a sore thumb, irrespective of the roof contouring or colour palette chosen. It's being built on the edge of a rural area - the Horsham boundary - far from any industrialised area - with telltale plumes of up to 400m from the top of its 96m chimney; and then lit up like a belisha beacon at night. The visual impact will be immense.

(v) The Environmental Arguments
You only have to watch/read the media in recent months to know there has been a step change in our attitudes to plastics. Consumer pressure will mean industry will be forced to reduce reliance on plastic packaging in a relative short period of time. And this will mean less waste to burn in incinerators. With EU incineration plants being decommissioned because of reduced availability of suitable waste to burn, many countries now have to import material to keep the burners going. So why is Horsham entering into dialogue to build one when it's clear demand is diminishing? Has there been any consideration made to future waste projections for the proposed incinerator facility? How are they planning to futureproof demand; or will Horsham residents be left to foot the bill for something that's not running at full capacity? As well as residents paying up for road repairs due to potholes contributed to by the lorries; increased pressure on local GP's due to rises in asthma; requirements to have radioactive processes in place in case of an environmental catastrophe from spillages of burnt waste and associated costs this brings. Is now really a good time to be opting to build such a facility? Fast forward a few years and no doubt it will be deemed regressive but by then it could be too late.

Y
184   Mrs Jane Smith Auclum Cottage, 17, The Marches, Kingsfold, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 3SY Object 02-APR-2018 I see from the resubmitted plans  that the height of the chimney has not been reduced even though the height of the building has.  There will be a permanent light on the top because of planes so that shows how high and intrusive it will still be. Such a facility needs a continuous feed stream to operate it, therefore 24 hour operation. Recycling targets are increasing all the time, therefore investment in a waste facility that works against recycling rate improvement is not sound and against Council policy. With the current state of the roads in terms of increasing traffic volume and road quality additional HGV traffic is not welcome. Such facilities as this are closing worldwide as there is not enough waste to feed them so why build one here in the wrong place, close to a rapidly growing town with a large housing development to come? Y
185 Mrs Susan Falvey 3, Quail Close, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 5ZJ Object 02-APR-2018 I objected to the first application over my very strong concerns about my family who live  in Langhurstwood  Road. My two grandsons spend a lot of time enjoying their garden and the surrounding area with their parents but sometimes the awful smell coming from the plant is unbearable and I¿m very concerned for their future health. Also we often have the smell in Quail Close in the summer months. Surely there¿s an alternative to this plan. Another problem is the noise from lorries going and coming to the plant which will increase astronomically if other towns are allowed to bring their waste to Horsham. Again a oroblem for families with children when walking during the day. This plan has to be scrapped. A new housing estate is already planned so the countryside is now under threat even more. Y
186   Mr David Adlam 13, Poplar Court, Faygate, Horsham, RH12 4AF Object 02-APR-2018 I and my wife live in a retirement village within a mile or two of the proposed incinerator plant.We OBJECT strongly to this planning application on the grounds of a real health risk to us and the rest of the retirement village which totals at least 400 people.Most of the residents have health risks like me with breathing problems and need a inhaler at least twice a day.This village is self contained and is very good for people like me but would never have moved here had we know about this incinerator with it's fumes and smoke etc.this also applies to all the other residents,it also to be noted that the prevailing wind is always from the west which means we are in a direct line to get the fumes etc. Y
187 Miss Alice Bradley 20, School Hill, Warnham, Horsham, RH12 3QN Object 02-APR-2018 I strongly object to this plan for many reasons. Firstly, I chose to live in a conservation area in the countryside which unfortunately looks directly onto the site. The chimney is truly ugly and unsightly in an area with no other tall buildings. The second reason for choosing to live outside of town is to be able to breathe fresh unpolluted air. This is something that I find hugely concerning as I suspect the effects of the fallout from these chimneys isn't fully known. In addition to this my partner suffers from asthma and I feel the plan would be further detrimental to his health.
It makes no sense to put such a structure firstly, so near to an airport and flight paths (I assume because of this it will be lit, just to draw a bit more attention to it) and secondly directly next door to a huge planned housing estate. I cant imagine families moving to the area would be impressed by such a structure right on their doorstep. Both the incinerator and housing estate will  bring in huge amounts of traffic to already busy roads not really designed for that volume of traffic, again adding to pollution levels in the area.
In a time when the population are becoming more and more aware of the environmental damage we are causing and looking to reduce our output of rubbish, recycle and find alternatives to single use plastics it seems totally outdated that a company thinks that the answer is just to burn it. We should be looking at ways to reduce waste in the first instance.

189 Mr Adam Wicks 77, Ropeland Way, Horsham, RH12 5NZ Object 02-APR-2018 I strongly object to the build of an incinerator primarily on the grounds that I live less than one mile from the proposed site, with a young family and I cannot accept any argument that will increase the levels of pollution in the area, however small, with unknown long term negative health effects.

Secondarily I feel that the proposed site is ill suited to such a facility which is designed to accept waste products from across the county/south east.  This can only have a detrimental effect on traffic in the area, and increase the burden on currently quiet country roads.

I have reviewed the application document and attended the public consultation meeting in Horsham. While I can see that clear efforts have been made to adjust the design to minimise its impact on the local area, within necessary technical limitations of such a facility, the main building is still significant in size and such a large chimney will be an eyesore.  As I see it, the proposed location is fundamentally flawed.
Y
190   Mr Allan Brown The Brighton Recycling Centre, Unit 1a, Moulsecoomb Way, Brighton, BN2 4PB Support 03-APR-2018 Having now fully viewed the plans for the proposed incinerator, I would like to express my support.  My understanding is that waste from West Sussex is now being sent miles to be disposed, often outside the district and is even going abroad. At the end of the day, it is the residents and businesses that are likely paying a premium for that and the situation is just not sustainable. We must deal with our own waste, and we therefore desperately need facilities such as this.

I have also looked at the proposed location for the plant, and it seems to me that it would be difficult to find a better one. Not only is out of the way, but secluded, and will be barely noticeable. So far as these types of facilities go, I even think the design will be quite nice to look at.

It is not often we see investment like this, and should give serious consideration to what appears to be a sensible solution for a problem that nobody else seems to be tackling effectively.

I would strongly urge WSCC to support this application.

191  Tony Martin 26, Bartholomew Way, Horsham, RH12 5JL Object 03-APR-2018 Dear Councillors,

I wish to object to the planning application for proposed incinerator on the following grounds:

¿ The total effect of incineration on the atmosphere is, at best, unknown and, at least, is known to increase CO2 levels.
¿ The effects on the environment and on the health of residents in the area is unquantified and a huge future risk given the extensive proposed building of residential accommodation in North Horsham  
¿ Additional HGVs will add further pollution to our town and the vast amount of litter all along the A264 from the M23 to Great Daux roundabout is evidence of the inability of the council to control this problem, without adding to it.
¿ The scale of the proposed development will be an eyesore on what is already a diminishing landscape.
¿ We already have the BIFFA treatment facility and risk becoming the dumping ground for the South East

I therefore urge the council planners to decline this application.

192 Mr Paul Hughes 17, Lemmington Way, Horsham, RH12 5JG Object 03-APR-2018 Dear Sir / Madam ,

I wish to object to the new Brittaniacrest application for the waste treatment plant in Horsham

May I start by saying that I am in favour of alternatives to landfill but this proposal is in the wrong place given that the gaseous exhaust is emitted upwind of residential areas

My objection is primarily that with the prevailing wind being westerly for 70% of the time ,particulates in the exhaust will be deposited on residential areas which include the recently approved development in north Horsham.

It seems to me that if an immensely tall chimney is required there must be a reason and that is probably for dispersal of potentially harmful particulate waste( e.g. from incinerated plastics) .If however the wind is light , that particulate waste will be deposited on residential areas.

It also has to be said that a 95m high tower is indubitably an eyesore.

As I previously said ,I am in favour of alternatives to landfill but this proposal is unsafe technology in the wrong place.If some way could be found of removing ALL harmful particulates before exaust exits the chimney I could possibly reconsider my objection

Yours sincerely,

Paul Hughes

Please consider this email as my formal objection to the latest planning application for the Incinerator.
As a resident of Warnham, it will have a sever impact both visually and environmentally - including noise, emissions, traffic - on our lovely village and surrounding area.
Huge lorries will be trucking in commercial waste from all over the south east, creating yet more congestion on our over populated rural road network.
The 95m stack is taller than Big Ben and the Statue of Liberty and will be visible from a 15km radius- creating horrific pollution with untold long-term health implications. The current site is already an eye-sore. When driving south on the A24 toward Warnham the view to the left was always quite pretty. Now all you see is a mountain of waste and industry blighting the landscape.
This is totally unacceptable in such a heavily populated area - of which Warnham is also a Conservation area.
I am hugely concerned about a massive industrial scale incinerator and its emissions being produced 1 mile from my home and my child's school at Warnham.
Best wishes
Steven Peskett

This is likely to be a huge white elephant as we are now looking at other methods of dealing with our waste.

The world health organisation advises that areas near a waste incinerator should not be populated and yet this facility will be adjacent to the North Horsham Development with the plume predominantly heading over nearby  conurbations.  The health of people is far too important for this to go ahead.

This incinerator will also be importing its waste from various parts of the country, yet causing more road pollution.
This is purely a financial project for  Britaniacrest to make a lot of money.

I am objecting to this proposed incinerator. The World Health Organisation says that waste incinerators should not be placed in populated areas - this one will be next to the North Horsham developments. This will result in increased traffic fumes from lorries etc and noxious fumes from the incinerator.

This is plan is purely for a private company to make a profit and not for the benefit of Horsham and its people.

There are already too many of these incineration plants and we are already recycling plastics at a higher level than before. We don't need this incinerator.

200 Mr Garrick Lloyd 15, Trefoil Close, Horsham, RH12 5FQ Object 03-APR-2018 The proposed incinerator is too close to local housing, will create more traffic movements increase in litter from rubbish trucks (which will increase in number as they will come from a wider area).  
There will be pollution from the plant which itself will also be a 'blot' on the landscape. The existing company have shown little respect for local citizens by creating litter/smells from the existing facility.
There are better alternatives for waste disposal.
Y
201 Mr Tony Felgate 66, Pondtail Road, Horsham, RH12 5HR Object 03-APR-2018 I question the value to Horsham of having this massive industrial complex placed in a rural community when it is more appropriate for the vast number of disused brown field sites throughout the county.  Chapter 13 section 13.1.2 is most significant in highlighted how little regard the proposers have for the Horsham region as it shows, quite clearly, that there is an adverse effect on the local area during building and during operation whereas the only beneficial results are regional.
This is most apparent when you consider the 95m high chimney (almost twice the height of Nelson's Column).  Massive earthworks, designed to hide the existing buildings but now highly obtrusive from Kingsfold and areas along the A264 north of Horsham, will be dwarfed by this chimney as it towers over the countryside.
Y
202 Mrs Jennifer Gammon 2, Coleridge Close, Horsham, WEST SUSSEX, RH12 5PB Object 03-APR-2018 I would like to object most strongly to the current planning application for an incinerator in North Horsham.
Firstly this is not a suitable location.  The World Health Organisation advises that areas near a waste incinerator should not be populated and not only would it be close to all the inhabitants of North Horsham but there is due to be a large housing development north of the A264,close to the proposed incinerator.
Secondly there is the effect of the transportation of waste in many heavy vehicles on our environment and roads. There is already a large amount of rubbish along the verges and central reservations which can only have come from HGVs transporting waste to the existing facility. Since the Council seems unable to control or prevent this, how much worse would it be if the number of vehicles were to increase!
Thirdly there is the visual pollution from the proposed incinerator building and the tall chimney. The Council should not allow the countryside near Horsham to be further desecrated.
Y
203  Susana Bailey - Object 03-APR-2018 I object to this planning application on health grounds. The plume from the chimney will fall over a widely populated area, and will be environmentally damaging as well.  We also already have a BIFFA treatment facility in North Horsham so we do not need a further incinerating facility.

Rather than an organisation making profits from the incineration of waste I believe resource must be used in a sustainable way and  reduce the use of plastics and recycling more. Incineration is not the way forward to protecting our future.  
Y
204  Noakes Chris - Object 04-APR-2018 Regarding the proposal for an incinerator in Horsham, I find it absolutely unnecessary and 100% object.

This is not just Horsham's problem but the surrounding areas too. Therefore I suggest you gain ideas and suggestions from innovators in this space and don't just default to the good old " let's just burn it " way. That should not be a 1st world response!

205 Mr Edmund de Burgh 54, Keats Close, Horsham, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 5PL Object 04-APR-2018 I have read the majority of the documents and whilst not a Luddite I have very strong and serious concerns about this application. With the permission already granted for the housing and industrial development to the north of Giblets Way, along with associated infrastructure including schools, support services, a new rail station and station parking, the entire basis of the ability of the roads and traffic in the area to support the road movements of lorries to and from the proposed incinerator, as stated in the proposal, is out of date and unsustainable. On the same basis the acceptance of the old land use principles for the site has been overtaken by the housing development approvals and thus the proposal for the incinerator is not acceptable in the light of the new housing plans and the people that will live and work there.
There will be a massive increase in vehicle movements as the new housing development is occupied, and the danger to road users and to pedestrians caused by adding movements of heavy vehicles, both loaded and empty trips, along sections of the A264 is very high and unnecessary. Note particularly the section between Langhurst Wood Road and the Rusper Road Roundabout which will incur particularly heavy traffic; modelling will show it is not safe nor sustainable in terms of capacity or road resilience to wear.
The increase in fumes, dust, odours and pollution would be unacceptable given the proximity to the new housing and industrial development. In addition, the impact of the already failing road infrastructure in the area and in the many towns and villages on the routes the additional lorries would take would be significant and the roads cannot cope now as is clear from the surface deterioration and plethora of major potholes which are in no small part due to the growth in traffic volume and weight.
We were promised that there would be no odour from the Biffa site and no adverse environmental impact. However, it is often impossible to sit in ones garden on hot days, or open windows, as the smell from the Biffa site permeates across the area when the wind is from that direction. In addition it has brought sea gulls which are adversely impacting on the Warnham Nature Reserve and its wildlife. I fear the assurances in the Incinerator application will be equally empty unless there are heavy penalties and compensation rights for citizens included in any approvals and in the contractual matrix. It is clear that the proposal is about money when the way forward should be about smaller sites strategically placed to minimise the unhealthy outputs and road movements, and a far greater move away from landfill and incineration towards recycling and stopping unnecessary use of disposable items.
I am strongly against the building of a chimney that will be both an eyesore and create light pollution in an area that is already suffering from the expansion ambitions of other industries including air traffic.
My final point (although there are many more I could make) is that to approve a pollution emitting development at this site given its proximity to the population centres where occupants of housing, school(s), industrial work places, and recreational units (current and approved) will be to put people and their health at risk of the pollutants and the traffic generated by the proposed incinerator. Risks that are wholly unnecessary and do not need to be taken.
I strongly object to the proposal and to the repeated attempts to represent the proposal by introducing variants. I hope the authorities will support the health and safety of residents of the area and reject the proposal.

206  Mrs Deborah Davidson Faygate, West Sussex Object 04-APR-2018 Dear Sirs

Please note a few objections to the above.

It is not suitable for the area of unspoilt countryside around the site.
There will be dust and fumes which will be blown over Horsham and surrounding areas (I live in Faygate).
The big recycling lorries using small country lanes is very unsuitable. There are already too many heavy plant lorries on our country lanes.
Pollutants in the air and the extra lorries diesel fumes will have a impact on the natural environment.

207 Mrs Carol Trowbridge - Object 04-APR-2018 Sir,
I object strongly to the proposed development of the Britaniacrest site in North Horsham for the following reasons:

The proposed development will be next to a huge, soon to be developed, housing estate and there are many other existing adjacent housing neighbourhoods.  Whatever emissions come out of the 95m stack, they will not be proven to be totally harmless to the local environment, therefore may be detrimental to health in the short or long term.
The light on the top of the stack to warn aircraft will need to be extremely bright, therefore disturbing the dark nature of local rural landscape, to warn aircraft as the Britaniacrest site will at times be directly under the flight path for Gatwick.

2.1.14. How can local residents be assured that any non-compliant waste would be detected and removed before incineration if there are only `frequent inspections¿.  Does frequent mean once a day, week, hour, month?  Surely it should be constant.

2.1.25. This states the waste being processed would be the same as already permitted.  What assurance do residents have that volumes will not increase in years to come.  After all, Britaniacrest want to maximise profit for their investment so therefore will have an incentive to process more waste.  

2.1.38. In future what is to stop Britaniacrest from applying for planning permission to extend the hours of lorry deliveries, store waste in lorries etc.  `Peak hours¿ happen every week day.

Noise.  The site is in a rural area so sound especially at night is very low.  How can we be assured that the existing quiet will not be disturbed by this plan.

To make the new site viable and economical, waste will be brought in from a very wide area which in itself has a high carbon cost with many vehicle movements. There is already overcapacity for waste incineration in Britain and the EU therefore this proposed waste should be taken elsewhere to feed these  other incinerators.  The EU may be delighted with our business.  However, recycling should be the way forward, not burning waste with the attendant pollution hazards.

I could comment much more but generally, I think the plan is severely flawed.

Yours sincerely,
Mrs. Carol Trowbridge

2.  Incineration will increase pollution to the area with increased Co2 levels damaging

3.  More HGVs on our roads to supply the incinerator with waste, again this harms

4.  The current facility is already a local eyesore when viewed from the A24 let alone
     the proposed high rise incinerator building with a 95m chimney potentially adding
     to the already polluted vista.
5.   The proposed development north of the A264 would be heavily affected by this
      application which goes against the advise issued by The World Health
      Organisation.This states incinerated waste should not be near populated areas.
6.    It would appear this proposal is for pure profit ,whereby the question is whether
       we really need another incinerator which is old hat compared to modern recycling

209   Mr Jonathan Gammon 2, Coleridge Close, Horsham, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 5PB Object 04-APR-2018 I am objecting strongly to the current planning application for an incinerator in North Horsham, reference WSCC/015/18/NH.
I am objecting principally on the basis of the incinerator's harmful proximity to existing and proposed residential areas and a wide range of other negative environmental impacts, including the visual blight of a tall chimney and the generation of road-side litter.  With regard to litter, in particular, the District Council's inability to prevent this occurring as a result of the current waste-handling facility indicates that this unacceptable situation can only become worse as a result of deliveries to an incinerator.    
Prior to the establishment of the current facility, and at the time when the brickworks at Warnham were in full operation, we experienced particulate "fall-out" at our home as a result of the prevailing winds driving discharge from the chimneys in our direction. Even with the current operations at Warnham, or thereabouts, we continue to experience "fall-out" and, in the absence of monitoring to show otherwise, we can expect the incinerator to worsen the situation to a possibly harmful level.  The current facilities have already added the nuisance of unpleasant odours on some occasions.

210 Dr Malcolm Hind 7, The Castle, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 5PX Object 04-APR-2018 I object to the siting of this incinerator on a number of points:-

Closeness to a large residential area with very little industry and attractive countryside.

Visibility of a tall chimney and accompanying plume, particularly as plant will be situated on a hillside

Very real possibility of air pollution occurring from such an inland site leading to respiratory problems for local residents

Increased traffic movements and noise on local roads, some of which are narrow country roads

Whilst having no inherent objection to incineration as a means of reducing landfill and (hopefully) production of heat and electricity by means of a CHP plant, the siting of such facilities requires very careful planning and preferably a coastal site where, at least for part of the time, the plume can be dissipated over the sea.

I am writing to voice my objection against the proposed Britaniacrest incinerator Ref: WSCC/15/18/NH.
I live in North Horsham and feel this would be too near to our populated area against the recommendation of the World Health Organisation. It will increase Co2 levels damaging health and the environment. I also feel this is a backwards step in attempting to reduce our use and recycling of plastics and would also encourage more HGV traffic into the area which will cause yet more pollution.

I wrote before to express my severe reservations over this application. Looking at the documents, my main concern remains. This is that the construction and operation of the site will add traffic to Langhurstwood road, which is already a dangerous road. I am the co owner of Pondtail farm which has field entrances along this road and on Mercer road which branches off it. Currently we have sheep and horse on the farm in rotation and need to use the road to move animals between fields, as would be expected on any country road. My sister in law was riding a horse that had to be euthanased after having it's leg badly broken after being hit by a motorcycle that was swerving to avoid a refuse truck on this road, luckily she was not injured. I see that Langhurstwood road is still to remain as the main entry for all this traffic and my concern for safety of other road uses be they animal or human remains.

We strongly object to this second planning application due to the same concerns we raised before. Our serious concerns are captured as listed above.The immediate road network is already inadequate with traffic often at a standstill.In addition to the new house building in the area the additional HGV traffic would create hugh additional problems to the traffic flow as well as additional pollution and noise,not to mention the mess from these normally dirty vehicles.

The size of the building and height of the chimney would be an eyesore and unacceptable to the local environment.

The emmisions from the plant would be totally unacceptable to the local environment and population creating health risks.

217 Mrs Anna Green 118, Rusper Road, Horsham, RH12 4BW Object 05-APR-2018 Dear Sir / Madam,

I would like to record our objection to the proposed plans to build an incinerator so near to large residential populations in Horsham, on the grounds of the significant environmental and public health risks this would pose.

There are a large number of families with young children living in Horsham, and many more continue to come to the area, with many (including ourselves) moving from London to live in a less polluted and generally healthier environment for their kids.

There is well documented research on the negative health effects of pollutants - of which the incinerator is due to generate not only a large quantity of, but also a wide range of poisonous and harmful types of polluntants - especially affecting young children, and vulnerable elderly.

The large new North Horsham development approved by the council last year, is planned to be built right next to the proposed site for the new incinerator. It seems incredible that this is not included as part of the risk assessment, as although it has yet to be built, the plans are in place.

As well as the significant direct impact on environmental and public health, I am also very concerned by the indirect economic impact this will have on the local area. Having recently moved to the North Horsham area, I would certainly not have considered this had I known there was a huge industrial incinerator in the vicinity. Assuming others feel the same way, the knock on effect on house prices and local businesses could be extremely damaging.

I hope you consider these issues in your consultation.

Kind regards,

Anna

We are already re-cycling a lot more in a Horsham than lots of other areas and are going to re-cycle even more now that we have gone to fortnightly bin collections.

Surely there must be a more suitable and remote spot for the incinerator, if it is needed, without it impacting on so many people who live in close proximity.

Re: Planning objection for Reference WSCC/015/18/NH

I am writing to share my formal objection to the above planning application. In light of the plans, I would like to object on the following grounds:

- the size of the site will have a significant impact on the landscape and surrounding areas - it will be seen for miles (given the excessive height of the chimney on the facility)
- noise levels. The site is likely to operate 24 hours per day, which is likely to mean in this quiet/rural setting there will be noise above the ambient noise level (c.35db)
- Non compliance with the West Sussex County Council strategic waste plan. Similar solutions have proven to reduce recycling and waste will be travelling from huge distance to our small town. This contravenes strategic objective 5.
- strategic objective 10 - protecting natural environments. This huge site will destroy the aesthetics of the area, and the increased lorry traffic will have a big impact on traffic flow and pollution which will also have an impact on resources and the environment (not to mention the pollution created by the facility itself)
- Policy W11 - character. The character of the area will be affected by such a large facility and the traffic flows will turn a quiet location into a bustling commercial vehicle hub.
- policy W12 - the proposed designs do not meet the requirements of this policy topography, landscape and skyline aspects for the surrounding areas.
- policy w19 - public health and amenity is likely to be affected by noise pollution, light pollution and noise, dust and emissions which for myself and family is completely unacceptable (the top of the stack is on a flight path and is therefore required to be lit at all times, drawing further attention to this oversized chimney)
- recycling levels are likely to be impacted if it is built. This would in effect be an admission that it¿s ok to create normal waste rather than recycled waste as it will be burnt. The thinly veiled argument that this facility creates energy to return to the grid is not a strong argument in my opinion, as a large proportion of the energy created is likely to be used in the process of generating electricity. The waste/emissions of vehicles transporting the waste will also be exceptionally large, therefore in my opinion, this outweighs any electricity generated comes at a big environmental cost.

(Nb I submitted a much shorter objection notice via the WSCC planning website and would like for this email to supersede/replace that objection please).

Please do let me know if you need any further information.

Many thanks and best regards

I am writing in opposition to the planning application reference WSCC/015/18/NH.

Having successfully fought the same application last year, which was rejected, it seems that the reasons behind objecting to this unwarranted reapplication needs reinforcing.

The incinerator is unwarranted. It is purely for profit by a private developer. The rejection of the 2009 incinerator resulted in the funding of the BIFFA Mechanical Biological Treatment facility, which was funded with taxpayer money. Horsham has not neglected its duty to be part of the waste management but it has done its bit!
Waste to feed the incinerator will be transported by HGV¿s across county borders, resulting in extensive pollution, not to mention additional congestion - wear and tear on roads - resulting in pressure on the budget for road maintenance.
The incinerator increases Co2 levels, damaging health and the environment. This alone should be a flag for rejection.
The reduction of single use plastics should be the priority. Recycling is the answer.The research into the amount of fuel needed to feed incinerators by MPs makes a direct correlation to a reduction in recycling, which cannot be a sustainable answer to the management of waste. are these National issues not seen as important by Horsham District Council?
The incinerator could be necessary before it's even commissioned! An expensive folly for a private developer. This is immoral!
The proposed incinerator is going to dominate the area, blighting the environment with its enormous construction of a 95m chimney on top of an imposing building. A building that is not warranted, needed or beneficial for the residents or environment!
The WHO advises that areas near a waste incinerator should not be populated and yet this facility will be adjacent ti the North Horsham Development with the resulting plume affecting nearby conurbations.

I have lived in Station Road for nearly 30 years, I have seen the Council propose a variety of ¿developments¿ over that time. I am in opposition to this one as it is straight forward- this incinerator is not necessary. I urge you to consider the sustainability and long term effect of this development.

First of all the incinerator is simply not required either in the proposed location or elsewhere. A number of studies bear this out and it clear that the incinerator will be of no real benefit to Horsham or the surrounding area.
The boast that it will provide renewable energy has to be seen in the knowledge that any electricity will be produced using 10 times the carbon footprint than that produced by the power stations that the UK Government propose to close down I accept that the proposed structure is smaller but the towering chimney will still be an eyesore with it's fumes spreading over Horsham and the surrounding area

Former Wealden Brickworks (Site HB), Langhurstwood Road, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 4QD

Application Number:�� WSCC/015/18/NH

Thank you for informing me of yet another attempt to gain permission for an incinerator on the above site.� My objections to this current new submission are the same as noted previously:

1. The site is in the wrong place and is the wrong size for an application that has dubious merits and unknown health consequences.� The size of the plant will require waste to be 'shipped in' from other areas to run it.

2. The site is too small and in the wrong place for such a facility, particularly now that permission has been given by HDC for a further 2500 homes on land adjacent to Langhurstwood Road.

3. The reduction in height and change in profile to the main building is incidental on this new application, it is insufficient to stop the building looking like a misplaced monstrosity in an area of outstanding beauty and with huge numbers of homes nearby.

4. The chimney or stack at 96m high will be more than 3.5 times the existing brickwork stack making it visible from over 20 miles away, completely unacceptable for a market town. This is without taking into account the flume which could be as much as another 400m high approximately 20% of the time if normal weather patterns repeat themselves, potentially this could also cause issues for aircraft and I understand that this has not fully been taken account of in the current modelling.�

5. The stack will cause unacceptable levels of light pollution in the surrounding area.

6. The revised landscaping does nothing to hide the building.� The application fails on your policy W12.

7. The noise levels associated with the operation of such a huge plant are incompatible with its rural location


I hope that your officers consider the objections to this carefully and carry out adequate research to refute the reports put forward. The application has been produced on a tick box basis where the applicant assumes that the weight of paper submitted will influence the committee to say yes.� It is not the weight of paper that matters but the quality of arguments put forward.� Clearly, despite lots of reports the applicant has missed the mark.� Wrong place, wrong size, not consistent with strategic aims.� It should be firmly rejected.

235 Mr Mark Avery The Ashdowns, 2, Leechpool Lane, HORSHAM, West Sussex, RH13 6AD Object 07-APR-2018 A change in the plans is not a change in location. With the planned housing development along this side of the dual carriageway the increase in traffic will already be more than the roads can handle and to then locate a facility which will require access for dozens of HGVs is clearly not sensible. In addition to this the location to such a now densely populated area given the planned incineration of waste is a potential health hazard.

I don't object to this type of facility but given there are miles of countryside surrounding Horsham I do not understand the logic of trying to place it so close to the main town and what are becoming more densely populated areas where the health risks for fumes let alone the potential smell, impact on the local environment and more importantly the impact on the already stretched road systems are not being given due consideration.

243  John & Kim Carter 18, Station Road, Warnham, RH12 3SR Object 07-APR-2018 Dear Sir/Madam,

We would like to submit our objections to WSCC/015/18/NH.

This planning application is to build an incinerator in the beautiful village of Warnham. We are residents of Station Road , Warnham and we will be directly affected by this monstrous building and excessive chimney.

Our objections are listed;

1. This proposal is purely for commercial profit funded by a private company. We, the taxpayer, paid for the existing Biffa Mechanical Biological Treatment Facility in 2009 and rejected proposals for an incinerator. We feel that Horsham has contributed more than enough to the waste issue.

2. Waste to feed the incinerator will be transported by HGV¿s across our county borders, polluting our air with Co2 and Nox emissions. We have more than enough traffic in our county without consenting to industrial pollution.

3. Incineration increases Co2 levels which is damaging to our health and our wonderful environment.

4. We are being encouraged (and forced) to recycle more. Our refuse collection has reduced to fortnightly to limit the amount of waste we have collected. This is in spite of a massive increase to our council tax of 4.95% for 2018. This is disgraceful in itself considering we are paying more money for leas services. The fact that the council is even considering this application is a complete contradiction to the recycling programme. MPs are already considering evidence that there are already too many incinerators in the UK so why on earth would we allow a private company to build something that there is no demand for and conflicts with the recycling goals of our country and our county?

5. The proposed chimney for the incinerator is 95m high. This is same height as Big Ben and 40m higher than Nelson¿s column! According to Britannia Crest, the height of chimney is out of their control and is being depicted by the Environment Agency. This indicates that the Environment Agency is greatly concerned that the fumes and pollution will affect our village of Warnham and Horsham town itself.
The chimney will also be lit 24hrs to ensure that aeroplanes do not hit it. How dreadful is that. The fact it could put air passengers lives at risk and the effect on local residents quality of life should be enough on its own for this proposal to be rejected.
The incinerator building itself will be bigger and taller than Swan Walk. This will also be lit up 24hrs. I cannot object strongly enough to this absurd planning proposal.

6. The World Health Organisation advises that incinerators should NOT be build near populated areas. Horsham District is the 2nd largest Local Authority District in West Sussex and has a total population of 132,900.  This is a populated area and is yet another reason to reject this absurd application.


7. Horsham has regularly been identified as one of the best places to live in the UK. With this monstrous incinerator blighting our landscape and pumping pollution into the air I cannot see that this accolade will last.


This planning application is the wrong plan, on the wrong site, and should not be allowed to proceed.

244  Raquel Adrados Gil - Object 07-APR-2018 Dear Sir or Madam,

I would like to send my objection of the construction of an incinerator in Horsham.
I believe that if the proposal WSCC/015/18/NH goes ahead, the pollution that this will generate, will have a high impact in the air quality and contamination of surrounding land and fields. The large size of the site will also generate more traffic (heavy transport) on the local roads.
We need more schools and a hospital to absorb the increase in Horsham¿s population, due to new building developments, not an incinerator to take refuse for the whole of West Sussex.

Regards,
Raquel Adrados Gil

248 Mrs Sara Pagden 4, Nymans Close, Horsham, RH12 5JR Object 08-APR-2018 I am writing to object to the application by Britaniacrest to build a massive incinerator on land at the Wienenberger Brickworks site off the A264 close to Great Daux roundabout, Horsham.  When the land was bought by Britaniacrest, planning permission for recycling and transfer waste operations was obtained, not to build an incinerator 36 m tall with a 95 m chimney, which will be permanently lit so that aircraft do not hit it.  The existing chimney is 28 m tall, the size of the proposed construction is enormous, massively higher than the existing chimney, and will have a major impact on Horsham and surrounding villages.    The proposed structure will be totally over powering and intrusive day and night as it sits way above the natural tree height canopy and will be permanently lit.  Even more so, when exhaust plumes are being emitted.


This proposal is purely for profit, proposed and funded by a private developer. Waste to feed the incinerator will be transported by HGVs across county borders, polluting our air with CO2 levels, damaging our health and the environment.  Incineration itself increases CO2 levels, causing further damage to our health and environment.  The World Health Organisation advises that areas near a waste incinerator should not be populated and yet this facility will be adjacent to the North Horsham Development with the plume heading over nearby conurbations.  This planning application, if it gains approval, gives grave concern for the health of people living in the locality.

250  Jan Ryan - Object 08-APR-2018 Re planning application for Brittaniacrest incinerator

I wish to object strongly against this application.
Horsham has plans in place to reduce the need for an incinerator. A new Treatment Facility was built for the region. This already involves many large lorries using our roads. If an incinerator is built, to make it financially viable, it will have to rely on large amounts waste being transported in.
The incinerator and chimney will be large ugly buildings. A greater objection is to the waste products which are released. The site for the proposed incinerator is already close to large residential areas, the new North Horsham development will be even closer.
Having lived in Coventry when their incinerator was built, with assurances that it was completely safe, and then closed when dioxins were found to be in the plume, I do not think that there are safe incinerators of waste.
To allow this incinerator to be built next to Horsham would be blighting the lives of everyone, it must be refused,

Yours sincerely,
Jan Ryan

256  Anne Munson - Object 08-APR-2018 As a resident of North Horsham, I wish to register an objection to the planning application to develop an incinerator in this area for the following reasons:

1. The area has an existing waste treatment plant which was developed in conjunction with the local authority and part-funded by the taxpayer. The current facility already generates a significant volume of heavy lorry traffic that impacts on the local road system and increases air pollution. Another waste treatment plant in the same area is not appropriate.
2. The proposed new incinerator site is located adjacent to the anticipated massive North Horsham housing development north of the A264, and close to the already-developed residential area south of the A264. The increase in emissions from the plant itself and the associated heavy lorry traffic (including out-of-county vehicles)  would inevitably impact on the local population. WHO advice is that areas near to waste incinerators should not be populated, yet this site will be very close to the homes of thousands of Horsham residents.
3. The visual impact of the infrastructure on the surrounding area, including a 95m (permanently lit) chimney, is unacceptable.

258  Katherine Holmes 78, Pondtail Road, Horsham, RH12 5HR Object 08-APR-2018 I wish to register a very strong objection to the above proposal on the following grounds:

1. It is purely for profit by a private developer and is not needed by, or of any benefit to local residents, since Horsham already has a Mechanical Biological Treatment facility  funded by the taxpayer.

2.Transport of waste to the site by HGV's would create extra pollution in terms of air pollution and also noise.

3. Incineration is known to damage health (and the environment) and the World Health Organisation advises against a waste incinerator being located near a populated area. I live in North Horsham which is already heavily populated and will be increasingly so in the future with many new houses.The proposal would be of particular concern to me because I suffer from chronic asthma, but I also worry about  the health of the many children in the area. Who can say what the long term effects of pollutants on them could be?

4. It is likely that increased incineration correlates with decreased recycling, which goes against councils' efforts to promote a greener society. We are all being encouraged by our councils to recycle much more so what sort of message does this proposal send out? Dispose responsibly or just chuck out all your rubbish because someone else will burn it for you?

265  D Chapman - Object 09-APR-2018 I write to object to the proposed incinerator on the following grounds:

Road Conditions
The highways surrounding Horsham are often bottlenecks and choke-points for road traffic, which would be further exacerbated by the regular HGV return journeys required to feed the facility. It is vehicles such as these that cause a disproportionate amount of air pollution, noise, and wear to road surfaces, which are all long standing nationwide concerns as it stands.

The unsightly HGVs would increase the visibility of industrial activity in our region, greatly detracting from our attractive rural community.


Air Pollution
The proposed facility would act as an industrial-scale pollution generation plant, releasing vast quantities of harmful CO2 into our atmosphere constantly.

There is now more evidence than ever to help reveal just how important clean air is to our collective health and well-being. To approve a facility such as this would be to knowingly and willingly disregard the known environmental effects of industrial CO2. We should be taking steps to reduce the CO2 and other harmful gases in our air, such as Carbon Capture facilities, rather than contributing to the problems and leaving it to future generations to remedy.


Light Pollution & Appearance
I understand that the stack is of such enormity that it is of interest to Air Traffic. This would be in stark contrast to the rural surroundings. It is easy to point out that obstacles lit for the benefit of aircraft are illuminated for visibility over great distances and therefore would obviously negatively affect the optics and skyline of Horsham and its surroundings, being an obvious and glaring new addition to the local scenery.


Ownership
As motorists we are charged Vehicle Excise Duty based on the CO2 emissions of our cars, whist the proposed incinerators will pollute vast quantities of pollutants on an industrial scale for profit.
We all know that burning waste on such a scale as proposed would contaminate our air, compromising the health of local residents today and for many years into the future until sites such as these are decommissioned and replaced by a genuinely green and sustainable method waste disposal.

It is on these grounds that I add my objection to that of many other concerned residents.

With regard to the above reference about the Horsham Incinerator that a private company want to establish in North Horsham we as a family of three living in Holming End RH12 4UW  Horsham strongly object to the possibility of this being built and used.

Having moved last year from Billingshurst to North Horsham we accepted before we moved the fact that hundreds of houses are to be built half a mile from where we live. We live in a wonderful area that is quiet, the air if fresh and the roads acceptable. We cant afford to move again nor want to, this is the place where my wife and I will spend our last days.

Its seems all about greed and money should this go ahead. It will blight the skyline. Will be fed by lorries constantly and add to the safety on the roads round here mostly the duel carriageway, and indeed will increase Co2 levels badly, affecting the environment and our health.

We as home owners have it seems little voice over the powerful charge of so many houses being built, mostly to help those escaping London who can afford to buy them. However this would be one step too far and you at planning should back with the Horsham Council the total blocking of such a project being passed.

Like many others this is something I will fight with all my might in any legal way I can.

This does not benefit Horsham in anyway whatsoever, unless of course someone has shares in such a project.

Please do not let this happen.

I am writing to submit an objection to the plans for the  proposed incinerator in Horsham as per the above reference number.

I feel very strongly that we should all be taking steps to reduce the amount of waste produced and to recycle more of it. In my opinion it would be a backward step to signal that waste be disposed of by incineration.The idea that we can just burn everything we waste , no matter how much we throw away is irresponsible and not sustainable  in the long term.

An incinerator would emit pollution as would the HGV vehicles necessary to service the incinerator. This would be harmful to both people living in the area and to the environment as a whole.

I believe that the council should  take a robust long term view to the problem of waste generation and management, and should reject this planning application.

Mr J Lewis of 5 Marlborough Place, Rushams Road, Horsham, RH122NR.



Reasons for my objection are below ¿


¿ Non-compliance with West Sussex County Council¿s Waste Local Plan
The size of the construction is excessive large and high and will have a major impact on Horsham and surrounding villages as well as potentially Surrey areas of outstanding natural beauty.
Strategic Objective 5: to make provision for a new transfer, recycling and treatment facilities as close as possible to where waste arises.
The scale of this plant seems to be seeking waste from outside the local area and thus will encourage commercial waste being transferred over great distance to feed a very large incinerator.
Strategic Objective 10: To protect and, where possible, enhance the natural and historic environment and resources of the County. There is no element of the proposals that will protect or enhance the natural environment.
Strategic Objective 11: To protect and, where possible, enhance the natural and historic environment and resources of the County.
There is nothing to suggest that this will enhance the local area in fact it will detract and blight being visible from 15kms away in areas of Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We should question the pollution from the emissions including lead, mercury, dioxins, the increase in road traffic and the impact it will have on business travel in delays and detrimental impact on Horsham as a whole.
Policy W11: Character. Proposals for waste development will be permitted provided that they would not have an unacceptable impact on: (a) the character, distinctiveness, and sense of place of the different areas of the County¿¿
It is questionable if this policy will be met by this proposal, as it will be seen from rural villages and detrimental impact on Horsham and surrounding rural communities.
Policy W12: High Quality Developments. Proposals for waste development will be permitted provided that they are of high quality and, where appropriate, the scale, form, and design (including landscaping) take into account the need to: (a) integrate with and, where possible, enhance adjoining land-uses¿¿ (b) have regard to the local context including: (iii) the topography, landscape, townscape, streetscape and skyline of the surrounding area; (iv) views into and out of the site.
The Britaniacrest proposal does not meet the criteria set out above.
Policy W19: Public Health and Amenity. Proposals for waste development will be permitted provided that: lighting, noise, dust, odours and other emissions ¿ are controlled to the extent that there will not be an unacceptable impact on public health and amenity.
The proposals will require aviation lighting as well as have a night-time noise impact on the neighbouring communities creating light pollution for the area.

Re: Wscc/015/18/nh

I am writing to object regarding Britanicrest plans to build an incinerator plant.

Traffic: Horsham and surrounding areas are being hit after hit with new builds on our beautiful country side. This unsightly proposal will increase HGVs  to our area along a already very dangerously busy A24 or A264.  I can't imagine the increase into Co2 levels but I fear for safety along these roads too.

Our market town: Horsham market town and surrounding areas are  blessed with views of both the south and North downs, to spoil these views of our protected heritage sites and FROM these protected heritage sites is just plain wrong and I have to be honest we will see this site from our house (we currently have a beautiful view of Leith Hill.

Our health: we have a very large landfill site which has an awful smell, increased traffic due to more and more houses being built is causing a rise in Co2 levels which will only increase with the number of HGVs visiting the incinerator.

Please can we just STOP building around our beautiful country side and market town - there is hit after hit with new builds.

PLEASE TREASURE OUR COUNTRY SIDE, HEALTH AND SAFETY.

Health. We in Warnham regularly smell the discharge from the current waste disposal site - therefore an increase in the discharge will be even more detrimental to our health and wellbeing (it is stressful to smell the discharge - let alone wonder what we are breathing in when we cannot smell it)

Infrastructure. The Horsham district is inundated with new housing developments and the population has and is rising dramatically meaning more people on the roads and increased traffic. Add all of the trucks that the new incinerator will bring and the roads will just become more congested, leading to additional noise and air pollution on top of what the new incinerator itself will bring.

Unsightly - Horsham district is well known for its beauty and tranquillity  - to add a huge incinerator building and its associated 90+ metre tower will blight the landscape for miles around our beautiful district

1- Pollution (CO2, Nox etc) levels will increase with the burning of waste.

2- The number of HGVs will increase substantially resulting in further pollution and congestion on already over crowded, poorly maintained roads.

3- The project is located immediately adjacent to the proposed new town to the North of the Horsham by-pass. The WHO advice is that incinerators should be located away from populated areas.

4- Current evidence indicates that with increased recycling there is insufficient material for incineration.

Horsham will become known as the dirty Town in Sussex, with the facility and Chimney being seen from miles around.

292 Me Keiron Palmer - Object 10-APR-2018 Morning,
Please can I lodge my formal rejection to the planning application for the proposed monster chimney chugging out pollution as a massive eyesore into the beauty of the Sussex countryside.

Britania Crest wish to build a tower taller than the Queen Elizabeth tower that houses Big Ben at the Wealden brick works site in Langhurst Road, Horsham, in order to burn tonnes of waste polluting the air for nature and humans.

This beast from the east will also be a huge blot on the landscape as it will be seen from miles around with the company logo spread down the length of the structure which will be visible space according to some Nasa experts.

This part of Sussex is a place of natural beauty with roaming wild Muntjaxk deer, red kites, sparrow hawk's, Barn Owls, Tawney Owls, to name a few all thriving in this area.

These are all under threat when a huge chimney is to be built in Horsham that will go on to pump out clouds of toxic waste into the atmosphere killing the wildlife and ruining the local eco-system.

Local residents will suffer breathing problems and unborn babies maybe be born with extra limbs and lung disease all adding to the NHS burden due to the toxic waste.

Horsham is a historic town that already suffers from Noise pollution from Gatwick as well as the fumes from low flying aircraft.

Please protect this area and the people of Horsham by refusing the planning application, let Horsham be known as a Historic market town, not Horsham.... the town with the massive chimney!!!

Kind regards

The thought of building an incinerator that has been proposed by Britaniacrest is totally unacceptable to right minded people. How this can even be considered is beyond me. With planning permission already approved for 2750 homes adjacent to the proposed site surely approval for such a scheme must be completely rejected.

294 Ms Julia McDermott 7, Tennyson Close, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 5PN Object 10-APR-2018 Dear Sir

I am writing to object to yet another attempt to build a monstrous incinerator adjacent to my home.

The objections I raised last time are still as valid today - namely

- it will impact hugely on the environment.  We already have to look at an enormous hill of rubbish which has been accumulating over recent years and
now dwarfs the defunct brick works factory chimney.  I understand this new chimney will be vastly bigger.  So big, it will need to be lit as a hazard to aircraft landing at Gatwick Airport!

- by allowing such a facility to be built adjacent to existing, and proposed housing, you are acting against the advice of the WHO which warns against the
location of such an incinerator in a populated area.  Why are you choosing to use a site in this populated area with a total disregard of potential health risks to local people?  You cannot incinerate without pollution - this is why the chimney has to be so high!

- the local road system is already overcrowded with traffic, and this is before
the approved 3,000+ houses are built.  There has been a huge increase in traffic since all the new housing at Broadbridge Heath, with enormous lorries now careering along the A24 at hazardous speeds.  More and more building is allowed with no regard to transport links or schooling.  NB how easy to do you think it will be to sell these proposed new properties if they are adjacent to such an environment hazard?!

- with the current research into the effectiveness of incinerating waste material, it appears that you may be proposing to build a "white elephant" which will not be needed in years to come.  Who is going to take it down when the profit dries up and the "owners" decide to move on?

In conclusion, why do WSCC keep agreeing to projects which are against the wishes of the local people? I was not surprised to hear quoted in the media that only two towns in the UK have met their housing planning target, Horsham being one of them.  Please act for the good of the local population.

298  K Young ., Roffey, RH12 Object 10-APR-2018 FAO Mr. Dumbrell

I am writing to register my outright objection to the proposal WSCC/015/18/NH.

As a resident of Horsham and a First Class Geography BSc (Hons) graduate from the University of Sussex, I am extremely concerned at such a non-sustainable proposal in my local area.

My grounds for opposition are:

1. The proposal is not in line with your own West Sussex County Council Waste Local Plan. It is a large-scale plant and will have a detrimental effect on the natural and historic environment and resources of the county.
2. My particular concern is the emissions from the plant and the associated damage to public health. On a personal note, myself and my partner have just purchased our first house in Horsham less than a year ago and are hoping to start a family here - I would be very worried about the harmful effects of breathing in pollutants, particularly on unborn babies and infants. Incinerators should not be sited in populated areas. Increasing carbon dioxide emissions is in direct conflict with all current national and international directives aimed at reducing greenhouses gases in our atmosphere and in turn global warming.
3. Light pollution as the proposal states the stack would need to be illuminated for aircraft. This is likely to have a harmful effect on the natural Circadian rhythms of wildlife in the vicinity.
4. Noise pollution of bringing heavy industry to a rural area.
5. The increase in traffic associated with the development would also raise noise and pollution levels as well as having a negative impact on the local infrastructre e.g. more potholes due to large lorries and congestion and bottlenecks.
6. The visual impact of such an unsightly plant.
7. The environmental impact to wildlife - the construction, noise and pollution will damage fragile local ecosystems.
8. Reduce-reuse-recycle should be being promoted as a sustainable policy, not incineration.

I would hope that as our local authority, West Sussex County Council could surely propose a more viable solution for waste management than allowing a private company to profit from irreversibly damaging our region.

Please don't hesitate to contact me should you require any further information.

Yours Sincerely,

Miss K Young, Roffey, RH12

WSCC/015/18/NH

As a resident of Horsham (12 Pondtail Road, RH12 2NL) I strongly object to the proposed waste incinerator. My objections are based on the following factors:

1              As an engineer I spent over 23 years working for a major company specialising in large utility plant, principle boilers. As such I am thoroughly aware of the problems that will be encountered in reducing pollution from the combustion process. I very much doubt that Britaniacrest will invest in anything but the minimum requirements for pollution control as the technology involved is very expensive.

2              The proposed erection will be an unavoidable eye sore destroying the natural beauty of our area. Its obvious that it will be impossible to disguise a building 38m tall with a 95m chimney.

3              The roads in the local area are already being overloaded due to all the new housing and no additional investment in improving the infrastructure. It is without doubt that the increase in HGV traffic will cause massive disruption, additional wear on the roads and additional risks to the safety of the general public.

4              In the 21st century, with our knowledge of environmental damage caused by pollution and global warming, it seems ludicrous to construct a new facility which will add to the problems, compounded by the additional pollution caused by transporting the waste to it.

300  Jean Johnson - Object 10-APR-2018 Good afternoon

The proposed Britaniacrest incinerator installation for Horsham is inappropriate. A catastrophic decision has already been made in that over 2000 houses are going to be built in the vicinity of this proposed site, please do not add to this severe problem by allowing this incinerator to be installed.

This proposal is proposed and funded by a private developer for profit, not for the benefit of the environment.  Horsham has already done it¿s share in the recycling programme by helping to fund the BIFFA Mechanical Biological Treatment facility.  The Horsham area does not have the infrastructure of accommodate the HGVs which would transport the waste to feed the incinerator. This plant would increase the levels of CO2 which damages both health and the environment. In addition the proposed height of the chimney is unacceptable at 95m - this would be visible from everywhere in Horsham - is this the sight we would like visitors to the area to be greeted with?

Please review the above points and and reconsider.  Horsham is an attractive market town and the residents wish to keep it that way - it is a good place to live and we would like it to remain so.

As a local resident, my objection centres on the following:

This  development does not comply with the West Sussex Local Plan County Council's Waste Local Plan,
demonstrating a deviation from Strategic Objectives and Policies.

Policy W19: Public Health and Amenity.  Proposals for waste development will be permitted provided that:
lighting, noise, dust, odours, and  other emissions are controlled to the extent that there will not be an unacceptable
impact on public health and amenity. The increase in HGV traffic, along with plans to include aviation lighting
will detrimentally impact local residents and the environment.

I consider that this proposed development is in appropriate as it represents a deviation from WSCC waste
management objectives and policies. Furthermore, it will negatively impact the quality of life of local residents
and have a detrimental impact on the local environment.

Why do, we as residents, have to go through this nausea every few years. We have twice rejected having this poluting monstrosity in our countryside, you know the town is going to reject it again and with even more good reason. As I live just inside the A264 bypass I will be looking at it rising above the trees every day spewing out smoke and foul chemicals. Even the WHO supports us, saying incinerators should not be built near housing conurbations and you already have planning for a new Horsham village right next to it.

I objected to the last application and do so again on the same grounds:

1. The increase of heavy construction and refuse vehicles in any area already at road capacity - shortly before the building of thousands of new homes is tantamount to inviting accidents to happen on the A264 and surrounding roads.

2. The new home development will be, at times, downwind of the exhaust from the incinerator. How can this be healthy for residents and their children ?

3. It is in the wrong place and arguably national research is indicating that this type of waste management is extremely damaging to the environment. How could it not be ?

4. Myself and my neighbours often smell diesel fumes from the A264 in North Horsham. How much more do we have to put up with for private company gain ?

5. This waste is going to predominantly NOT from our district. Why are we planning to contaminate what should be green land with fallout from burning waste from Romford, or Lewisham, Luton or Heathrow ? Shouldn't those areas be takling their waste issues themselves ?

This is a rehash of a terrible idea with potentially deadly consequences.

I would like to object strongly to the above application. I live at Warnham Court, Warnham and the proposed incinerator building and chimney will be clearly seen from the grounds and will be an unsightly intrusion on this beautiful part of the countryside. Furthermore the increase in Co2 emissions will be harmful to housing in the vicinity, and without doubt will waft towards Warnham with prevailing winds.
There will be a significant increase in HGV traffic, some of which will inevitably have to travel along the A24 from Surrey. The stretch between Capel r/o and Daux r/o is narrow and winding and totally unsuitable for existing traffic volume let alone any increase. There have been several fatal accidents along this stretch of road.
There is an intensive development of housing in an around Horsham which will also add to the volume of road traffic to the detriment of local communities and the large development of housing scheduled for land to the North of A264 will be too close to the proposed incinerator which will impact on their environment and will affect their values and sale-ability.
Why is there an invasive drive by Britaniacrest to construct this large and unwanted development. They have a large site on the A217 near Reigate which arguably would be suited for an incinerator without impact on surroundings. We already have an incinerator in Newhaven and another being completed near Sunbury. These can service Surrey and Sussex so why do we need this extra capacity.
Please, please turn down this application. We do have the Biffa plant which in its own way is undesirable but we live with it!

We have already lost a large area of the surrounding rural land that we use for walking to another large development which is in progress which will also include a large number of homes even closer to the proposed incinerator.  Our area is doing well with recycling and the rubbish to be incinerated will be from other areas delivered by lorries increasing traffic on an already busy road (also causing increased pollution) when the new housing estate is already set to increase the traffic in this area.  The incinerator is profit based and our health and quality of life should not be compromised in order for a company to make money.  It should be situated in a suitable location a safe distance from homes close to where it is actually needed, the country is trying to reduce incinerators in order to increase recycling, therefore new incinerators should not be needed.

I am writing to you today to strongly object to the planning application for a recycling and renewable energy facility at the former Wealden Brickworks in Warnham, and to urge you to refuse this application in full. I was shocked to get the news that Horsham District council had voted 'in favour' of this application at a recent meeting and I would like to (i) confirm this is correct and (ii) understand the reason for the decision.

I think this facility is in the wrong location, close to populated areas and is certainly not in keeping with the rural area, my objection is based on my points below:

(i) Visual impact
The building and the size of the chimney (95m) is excessive and is way above the tree canopy, it will be seen for miles from areas of outstanding natural beauty (Surrey Hill's)spoiling the views and that of the surrounding conservation areas. It will not fit into its surroundings and be easily visible and completely out of place.

(ii) Increase in traffic
In order for the facility to be used 24/7 vehicles will be required to transport waste, this will lead to an increase in traffic on a road infrastructure which is already struggling to cope with existing traffic volumes.

(iii) Pollution
The fumes from incineration of industrial waste will cause pollution in the area to rise to unacceptable levels. This will have a huge detrimental impact on the local and surrounding communities, both in health and quality of life.  

(iv) Light Pollution
Due to the excessive height of the chimney, it will be required to be visible to Gatwick airport air traffic at night and therefore will require substantial lighting, this will increase light pollution in the area and have a negative impact on the local communities living standards.

(v) Noise
Both the additional traffic and the facility running 24/7 will lead to unacceptable noise levels in an area where there is little back ground noise. This will have a negative impact on the local communities living standards.

(vi) Wildlife
The facility due to size, light pollution, noise and pollution will be detrimental to local wildlife, including Warnham Deer Park and nature reserve.  

(vii) Detrimental to the area
Horsham is a historic town and has many areas of beauty and conservation, its a nice place to live ! this facility will bring a huge negative impact to the area both to live in and visit. Horsham also has a reputation as a very desirable area to live in and if this facility goes ahead this will no longer be the case.

This facility is not part of the WSCC waste plan and is a private venture which is NOT in the interested of the local and wider community and brings no net benefits. I would strongly challenge WSCC motives if this application is successful.

The proposals for an incinerator does not meet WSCC waste plan:

Visual Impact

The chimney of the brickworks is 26.5m high.  The proposed incinerator building will be taller than this chimney some 35.92m in height.

The building will be bigger than Horsham¿s shopping centre, Swan Walk, and taller than the brickworks chimney, 26.5m.

It will be seen from far and wide, including areas of outstanding natural beauty.  By the proposers own submission it will be seen as far as Box Hill.

Noise Pollution

As the site will be 24/7 it will create noise above the ambient noise enjoyed by rural areas of 30-35dB.  This ambient noise levels decrease at night.

Not Needed

It would seem that West Sussex already has given planning permission for an incinerator at Ford in 2014.  With an incinerator already permitted to be built on the coast it is highly questionable why an incinerator is needed on the edge of the county.

320 Mr MJB Davies 3, Capton Road, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 5FJ Object 12-APR-2018 Dear Sir/Madam,
Reference WSCC/015/18/NH
I wish to make an objection to the proposed development referenced above, namely the planned construction of a commercial waste incinerator plant in North Horsham at the site of the former Wealden Brickworks in Langhurstwood Road, Horsham.
As a local resident, my objection centres on the following key areas:
1) This development is not in line with the West Sussex County Council¿s Waste Local Plan, demonstrating a deviation from Strategic Objectives and Policies, specifically:
¿ Strategic Objective 5: to make provision for a new transfer, recycling and treatment facilities as close as possible to where waste arises.  (This is clearly not the case, when the proposal involves transporting commercial and industrial waste from across South East England by road to be processed at this plant).
¿ Strategic Objective 11: To protect and, where possible, enhance the natural and historic environment and resources of the County.  (I'm unclear as to how the construction of such a large edifice and accompanying chimney will enhance the environment.  More significantly, the emissions from the incinerator and the increased HGV traffic required to ship waste to the plant are unlikely to help enhance the local natural environment or quality of life of the residents).
¿ Policy W11: Character. Proposals for waste development will be permitted provided that they would not have an unacceptable impact on: (a) the character, distinctiveness, and sense of place of the different areas of the County.  (The current proposal will have a detrimental impact on the surrounding area, and certainly will not enhance the lives of local residents or the environment).
¿ Policy W19: Public Health and Amenity. Proposals for waste development will be permitted provided that: lighting, noise, dust, odours and other emissions are controlled to the extent that there will not be an unacceptable impact on public health and amenity.  (The aforementioned increased HGV traffic, along with plans to include CAA-mandated aviation lighting will detrimentally impact local residents and the environment).
2)  The potential health and environmental impacts of this proposal have not been elucidated clearly in the public domain.  Given that the plant will process commercial and industrial waste, it is reasonable to expect that projections of the expected constituents (and concentrations) of the emissions should be openly provided to the public - referencing other similar incinerator facilities.  Projections of expected HGV traffic from across the South East might offset any purported environmental benefits of waste incineration versus landfill.  The combined impact of the incinerator and increased HGV emissions will certainly be detrimental to air quality.  Additionally, from an environmental, and even a practical waste management standpoint, the incineration of waste does not complement the drive for increased recycling.  
These are my key concerns, although I am aware that there are several other points of objection which have been raised by other parties separately.  
In conclusion, I consider that this proposed development is inappropriate as it represents a clear deviation from WSCC waste management objectives and policies. Furthermore, it will negatively impact the quality of life of local residents and have a detrimental impact on the local environment.

Planning ref: WSCC/015/18/NH at Wealden Brickworks, Langhurstwood Road, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 4QD

With complicated medical conditions we moved to an area where air quality was better. It would seem that you (the council) are proposing to change this. Does this mean that I either bury a child or have to move yet again!
Be revolutionary not a follower.


The proposals for an incinerator does not meet WSCC waste plan:

Strategic Objective 5: to make provision for a new transfer, recycling and treatment facilities as close as possible to where waste arises. The scale and throughput of the proposed plant is incompatible with the disposal of local waste and will attract material from outside of the county.

It is clear that this proposal goes against the WSCC waste policy to recycle close to origin of waste.  

Strategic Objective 10: To protect and, where possible, enhance the natural and historic environment and resources of the County. There is no element of the proposals that will enhance the natural environment.

Policy W11: Character. Proposals for waste development will be permitted provided that they would not have an unacceptable impact on: (a) the character, distinctiveness, and sense of place of the different areas of the County¿¿

The proposal will have a dramatic effect on the character of Warnham and Horsham and so we believe it does not meet the criteria.

Policy W12: High Quality Developments.  Proposals for waste development will be permitted provided that they are of high quality and, where appropriate, the scale, form, and design (including landscaping) take into account the need to: (a) integrate with and, where possible, enhance adjoining land-uses¿¿  (b) have regard to the local context including: (iii) the topography, landscape, townscape, streetscape and skyline of the surrounding area; (iv) views into and out of the site.
This incinerator clearly does not meet this requirement.

Visual Impact
Light Pollution
Noise Pollution
Air quality

It would seem that West Sussex already has given planning permission for an incinerator at Ford in 2014.  With an incinerator already permitted to be built on the coast it is highly questionable why an incinerator is needed in the middle of a residential town.

I firmly object to the incinerator being built.

I write to strongly object to the proposed incinerator referenced as above.

I live on the edge of Warnham village on School Hill and as such have direct views of not just the tip, the brickyard, their existing chimneys, the bright lights polluting our night sky but what is now proposed is an even bigger blight on this part of the countryside.

My objection is not just because of the visual impact but also the increase in traffic on an already over congested road forcing even more motorists to use our village as a cut through, which is already at a ridiculous level.  The A24 is one of the most dangerous roads in Britain and this proposes to increase the traffic with large goods vehicles without any consideration for the potential increase in traffic accidents, already at an all time record high for one stretch of road. The increase in fumes as traffic sits on the road waiting to get to Great Daux Roundabout, the increase in pollution from the proposed chimney and light pollution at night that is going to be the result of the huge chimney stack having to be lite for aircraft purposes plus the potential 24 hour nature of the plant causing increase in noise pollution.

Enough is enough, Warnham and surrounding countryside in this area has taken its fair share of industrial burden without any additional infrastructure to support it and as such I strongly urge you to turn down this proposal.

Yours faithfully,

It was hugely disappointing to hear that our very council `Horsham Council¿ has approved the application, I strongly urge West Sussex to decline the application for the right reasons, I also hear that the traffic impact hasn¿t been properly considered and therefore the application should be declined.
I¿m write to strongly object to this application.  An incinerator this close to homes most of which are occupied by young families should not be subjected to the pollution this site will cause.  If you look at projected plumes our area (including a number of primary schools) is in a high level of pollution which will effect the health of the inhabitants.  
It will be an eyesore to the area which is currently semi-rural and one of the first sights seen entering Horsham and West Sussex. We have already lost a large area of the surrounding rural land that we use for walking to another large development which is in progress which will also include a large number of homes even closer to the proposed incinerator.
Our area is doing well with recycling and the rubbish to be incinerated will be from other areas delivered by lorries increasing traffic on an already busy road (also causing increased pollution) when the new housing estate is already set to increase the traffic in this area.  
The incinerator is profit based and our health and quality of life should not be compromised in order for a company to make money.
It should be situated in a suitable location a safe distance from homes close to where it is actually needed, the country is trying to reduce incinerators in order to increase recycling, therefore new incinerators should not be needed.

I would like to object to the incinerator proposed by BritaniaCrest for many reasons but my main objections are:

It will be a blot on the landscape for the lovely town of Horsham .
The toxic fumes emanating from the chimney and spreading throughout Horsham and beyond.
By burning certain rubbish it discourages recycling which this government is so keen to promote.
There have been many studies to show no more incinerators are needed.
The increase in traffic which will inevitably add to more pollution.
It could certainly affect many people throughout Horsham who have breathing problems.
In view of the ideas for the future expressed by Secretary of State Mr Gove I am sure it's something he would not approve of.

339 Mrs S Napper Treetops, Pondtail Drive, Horsham, RH12 5HY Object 14-APR-2018 Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to object to the proposed incinerator north of Horsham. It makes no sense for the proposal to build the incinerator to be approved. There is no benefit to Horsham or the surrounding area, yet there are many reasons why it could be detrimental to the town and it's inhabitants.

Horsham is a town popular with young families, and there are several primary schools not too far from the proposed site (as well as a possible new school in the proposed North Horsham development) - do we want our young population growing up here and having to accept the potential health risks that come with additional air pollution? As a fairly affluent town, should we not be trying our best to reduce pollution and encourage recycling - this is not something that can be left to a central government - every local authority has a responsibility to make a difference.

As a town which appears to be keen to expand by means of new home building, the local authority needs to consider what will draw people to live in the town, settle here, and pay their council tax. Having an incinerator on our doorstep is not an inducement to settling in the town, and instead will be a reason to move away from the area.

Please take this objection into consideration when making the decision. I would like to think that WSCC are able tell Britanniacrest that their incinerator is not wanted here today, next year, or any year in the future.

¿
¿ Non-compliance with West Sussex County Council¿s Waste Local Plan
¿ The size of the construction is excessive large and high and will have a major impact on Horsham and surrounding villages as well as potentially Surrey areas of outstanding natural beauty.

¿ The scale of this plant seems to be seeking waste from outside the local area and thus will encourage commercial waste being transferred over great distance to feed a very large incinerator.

¿ There is nothing to suggest that this will enhance the local area in fact it will detract and blight being visible from 15kms away in areas of Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We should question the pollution from the emissions including lead, mercury, dioxins, the increase in road traffic and the impact it will have on business travel in delays and detrimental impact on Horsham as a whole.

341 Mr Philip Smith 1, North Holmes Close, Horsham, RH12 4hb Object 15-APR-2018 As a North Horsham resident for almost 40 years I strongly object to the placement of this waste incinerator so close to a heavily urbanised area. The area has plans to increase the numbers of houses further exacerbating the dangers to a greater number of people. The toxicity of the gums generated is known to be dangerous to health both short term and long term to consider placement so close to a large densely populated are is completely illogical and unnecessary. Adding to the dangers to health caused by the incinerator itself is the increase in waste transportation on the local roads as no doubt other areas would then see Horsham as a safe sight to dump their waste making horshams long standing reputation as a good place to live. The reputation of our whole district will be defined by the waste incinerator not the benefits of the area. Generations to come would suffer the consequences of a rash selfish decision, a decision based on financial considerations only. Y
342 Ms Alison Peters - Object 15-APR-2018 I would like to raise my objection to the proposed incinerator for a number of reasons.
1. The shere scale and size  of the chimney is very shocking. A structure  so tall and so intrusive to views will have an  incredibly negative impact on the area and countryside . This will have a very detrimental impact of the surrounding area and is hardly `acceptable impact of the character,distinctiveness and sense of place ` as stated in policy w11
2. Non compliance with the county council¿s own Local Waste Plan. Strategic Objective 11 is ` to protect and where possible enhance the historic environment ` . This is hardly the case with a chimney of this height.The size of the proposals leads to concerns about this not just being for local waste but waste being brought infrom other areas in the southern counties and transfer to this very large incinerator.
3. Noise and light pollution is also a concern as the low background noise will affect those living closer to the site on 3 locations.
4. Increased levels of pollution. The increased levels of dust and pollution in such a highly populated area  is very concerning and seems a very odd choice of location for such a building.
5. Negative impact on local countryside and wildlife. I should say even more impact on the the natural environment and wildlife. I live in Broadbridge Heath and wildlife and environment  has already had the impact of 2,500 new homes and 250 houses in the remaining fields in this area. I am  seriously concerned that areas of unaffected  countryside for wildlife are becoming increasingly scare and we are changing entirely the character of the surrounding countryside. Whilst appreciating the need for housing the need for an industrial incinerator in addition to this is at best questionable and at worst disastrous.

Overall the scale of this proposal is unacceptable it is detrimental to the character and natural environment of Horsham and the surrounding area. This cannot possibly sit within your own policy W12.¿Proposals for waste development are permitted providing that they are of high quality, and where appropriate , the scale, form and design take in the need to intergrate and where possible enhance adjoining landscapes....¿ . It is extremely difficult to see how this will happen.

Thank you and I do hope you will consider the concerns and objections of so many residents. Please do not ruin the entire skyline and remaining countryside  of Warnham and Horsham as a whole.

The operation is proposed to be 24hrs so fumes would be spread across the district all day everyday again raising concerns about pollution. The traffic increase to feed this site would dramatically increase and I feel the roads would not be able to cope with such heavy duty vehicles. This would also bring an increase in traffic pollution to the area.
The size of the building would also dominate the landscape and would not be a positive addition the a market town.
The light from the site would also blight the area. It¿s in countryside and at present has little light pollution from the industry already present. The noise of the operation would be constant.

The emissions from it wil undoubtedly impact air quality and my daughter alr day has breathing difficulties and suffers from asthma. Furthermore the already gridlocked roads in and around hormahm will bec9me even more Choked with cars and fumes, particularly with the massive increase on lorry traffic. Horsham¿s houses will be devalued by the 24/7 operating of this facility, if it goes ahead. It will not incentivise recycling or promote Horsham as the lovely place to live that it once was. Please please please DO NOT ALLOW this to go ahead. It will not benefit the people in of Horsham in any way and it will cause harm the the unfortunate people living, working and going to school in the shadow of the terrible facility. Y

As a resident of the Warnham/Horsham area I would like to strongly object to the proposed incinerator being built :
Planning ref: WSCC/015/18/NH at Wealden Brickworks, Langhurstwood Road, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 4QD
The proposals for an incinerator does not meet WSCC waste plan:
Strategic Objective 5: to make provision for a new transfer, recycling and treatment facilities as close as possible to where waste arises. The scale and throughput of the proposed plant is incompatible with the disposal of local waste and will attract material from outside of the county.
Strategic Objective 10: To protect and, where possible, enhance the natural and historic environment and resources of the County. There is no element of the proposals that will enhance the natural environment.
Policy W11: Character. Proposals for waste development will be permitted provided that they would not have an unacceptable impact on: (a) the character, distinctiveness, and sense of place of the different areas of the County¿¿
The proposal will have a dramatic effect on the character of Horsham and so believe it does not meet the criteria.

363 Mr Rod Cuming 3, 3, White Horse Road, Horsham, RH12 4UL Object 16-APR-2018 1. This would be a massive industrial building out of character with Horsham as an historic market town.
2. The chimney would have a serious negative visual impact and would convey an image out of character with Horsham.
3. Heavy vehicle movements would increase dramatically from those currently experienced with corresponding impact on noise and emission pollution.
4. This part of the road network where the A24 meets the A264 is already extremely busy and will become more so as housing developments west of Horsham (2000 homes) and north of Horsham (2750 homes)are completed. The huge increase in heavy vehicle traffic arising from an incinerator would both add to the congestion and to road safety concerns.
5. The heavy vehicles would be routed through the planned north of Horsham housing development with associated risks to residents health, safety and quality of life.
6. Given the existing number of incinerators operational in the UK plus applications already approved it has been forecast that by 2020 the UK will have an overcapacity for incineration of residual waste (Eunomia). Therefore, no further expansion of capacity is needed per se. Such approvals could lead to avoidable expense and import of residual waste to support long-term contracts.

365 Mrs Tracy Francis Ashleigh, Dorking Road, Kingsfold, West Sussex, RH123SB Object 16-APR-2018 I wish to lodge my objection to the plans submitted by Britaniacrest for an incinerator just outside Horsham.  I cannot believe that after reading the list of pollutants that this enormous chimney will be spewing out 24/7,  that this application has not been thrown out immediately. Both Horsham District Council and West Sussex County Council MUST act to stop this area becoming a dumping ground for other Counties waste and blighting the lives of everyone who lives here.  How can a huge incinerator be built literally next door to the North Horsham development. Your constituents will  be breathing in a cocktail of chemicals which include greenhouse gases, acidic gases, heavy metals and poisons for the rest of their lives The site is also upwind of one of the County¿s most densely populated areas (Crawley and Horley), and of a number of important drinking water reservoirs (Ardingly, Wierwood and Bewl Water).

CPRE Sussex¿s Dr Roger Smith is warning that the list of substances involved reads like ¿an environmental horror story.¿  They include heavy metals such as arsenic and mercury which are cumulative and could cause irreversible damage to the environment and human health when they come to ground.

¿The cumulative impact of dioxins and of any other persistent pollutants emitted by the facility, after coming to earth, seems not to have been assessed!

¿Mapping, showing where pollutants emitted by the proposed facility would come to earth and the extent of resulting ground fall/downwind-hazard areas ought to have been provided for public scrutiny, as part of the consultation. However, the data submitted with this application was obtained at Charlwood, eight miles to the north, and not from the site of the proposed facility.¿

A full investigation into how and where the pollutants emitted by the facility, individually, collectively, and cumulatively over time, could or would impact on farmland and livestock and the natural environment, including habitats, biodiversity and ecology needs to conducted, before any decision to allow this monstrosity is taken

Britaniacrest¿s plans also include a vast 95m chimney which will have a far reaching visual impact, blighting the countryside for miles around and  the natural beauty of vast areas of rural landscape within Sussex and Surrey.¿

I  believe that to permit such a monstrous industrial incinerator in the heart of Sussex countryside would inflict far reaching environmental damage and should be refused on every level.

We have no infrastructure to deal with the vast amounts of extra lorries trucking this waste into the incinerator on already fast, dangerous roads. Planning permission has already been granted for an incinerator in Ford in Sussex so there is absolutely no need for another facility in Sussex. Let another County take the burden for a change and put your people first. We voted you in and it is your job to stand up for what we want.

369  Mike Nix LLB (Hons) 87, Hazelhurst Crescent, Horsham, RH12 1XB Object 16-APR-2018 Dear Sirs,

I am writing with great concern in regards to the above planning application. It would appear that to give this approval would vastly degrade the allure of Horsham, a town my family have recently moved to for many reasons but mainly it still has that `rural¿ feel about it. Building, what you have described almost paradoxically as a Renewable Energy facility, will surely add to the pollution in the local area due to the vast amounts of waste that will be burnt and the industrial processes that a plant such as this will undertake, including the increased number of HGVs, which will also add to the pothole situation in bad weather conditions, as we have seen recently.

Aesthetically, it will definitely not add anything to Horsham and will more than likely be an eye-saw. You have already had many objections on this issue including from neighbouring councils.

There must be many other sights, in less populated areas that can accommodate Britaniacrest¿s plans, so please take this as my objection to the approval of this application .

Y
370   Mrs Susan Horne 82, Hill Mead, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 2PX Object 16-APR-2018 I objected to this proposal the last time a planning application was made by Brittaniacrest, just a few months ago.

An incinerator of this scale will not only be a huge eyesore for miles around Horsham and leave a scar on the landscape, it will more importantly open our children up to highly toxic and carcinogenic pollutants and irreversibly damage their health, as well as ours.

No one in their right mind, let alone locally, should be supporting such a proposal. Horsham should not be incinerating waste from the South East!

If this incinerator goes ahead, it will unequivocally change our beautiful market town, there will be a mass exodus and slash house prices. Is this what WSCC & HDC want? What are they gaining from this proposal?

374  Alan and Sue Sheridan ., Saykers Faygate Lane Rusper, RH12 4RF Concern Raised 16-APR-2018 Dear WSCC County Planning,

I live with my family at Saykers Faygate Lane Rusper RH12 4RF

We have lived there for 20 years in June.

We suffer from noise from the airport and at times a considerable amount of aircraft exhaust fumes. This increases with taxi and take off noise when the wind is blowing west. We can stand in our garden and smell the fumes, this is not a vague odour, this is the same strength as being at the airport.

There is no dispersion, we live in the dip below Rusper. There is already a very serious air quality problem in the area surrounding the airport caused, I believe, by increased flights and road use. During the 20 years all of the moss and lichen on our fence has died, the post and rail fence is bare wood.

Should the Capel incinerator be granted planning the proposed chimney will clear the exhaust for the very local residents only, the rest of us will suffer from even more pollution.

I think we are already suffering enough pollution from the airport.

In all honesty, it is almost beyond belief the County Council would even consider siting the incinerator so close to the airport.

Yours faithfully

Alan and Sue Sheridan

The fumes, which will NOT be pure, will drift over the proposed north Horsham development on the prevailing wind and over Warnham in the opposite direction if the wind is from the east.
Further to all the above the fact that there will be a huge increase in heavy vehicles destroying our already overcrowded and crumbling roads and the eyesore of the building and ridiculous chimney.

As a resident of Warnham, Horsham, I strongly object to the proposed incinerator being built

The proposals for an incinerator does not meet WSCC waste plan:

Strategic Objective 5: to make provision for a new transfer, recycling and treatment facilities as close as possible to where waste arises. The scale and throughput of the proposed plant is incompatible with the disposal of local waste and will attract material from outside of the county.

Strategic Objective 10: To protect and, where possible, enhance the natural and historic environment and resources of the County. There is no element of the proposals that will enhance the natural environment.

Policy W11: Character. Proposals for waste development will be permitted provided that they would not have an unacceptable impact on: (a) the character, distinctiveness, and sense of place of the different areas of the County¿¿ The proposal will have a dramatic effect on the character of Horsham and so we believe it does not meet the criteria.

Policy W12: High Quality Developments.  Proposals for waste development will be permitted provided that they are of high quality and, where appropriate, the scale, form, and design (including landscaping) take into account the need to: (a) integrate with and, where possible, enhance adjoining land-uses¿¿  (b) have regard to the local context including: (iii) the topography, landscape, townscape, streetscape and skyline of the surrounding area; (iv) views into and out of the site.  This incinerator clearly does not meet this requirement.

Visual Impact

The chimney of the brickworks is 26.5m high.  The proposed incinerator building will be taller than this chimney, at some 35.92m in height.

The building will be bigger than Horsham¿s shopping center, Swan Walk, and taller than the brickwork¿s chimney, 26.5m.

It will be seen from far and wide, including areas of outstanding natural beauty.

Light Pollution

There will be a significant increase in light pollution.

Noise Pollution

As the site will be operating 24/7, it will create noise above the ambient noise enjoyed by rural areas of 30-35dB.  

Air Quality

The air quality is declining in the area due to the congestion surrounding our parish.  Lack of investment in highways means that we are subjected to cut through traffic on our country lanes every day bring car pollution to our rural doorsteps.  WSCC in their recent Connect magazine detailed that 80% of nitrogen dioxide concentration at the roadside is caused by road transport.

This proposal would bring lorries on the dangerous A24, congested A264, A29, M23, and so the list goes on, as waste will be imported into Horsham to burn.

It is clear that the small particles are not captured by the current levels of air quality and thus are seen to be causing breathing issues, especially in the young and old.

380 Mr Peter Raby 18, Willow Road, Horsham Object 17-APR-2018 Britaniacrest have an incinerator on the site so for them the logical thing to do is to rebuild on the site but make it bigger.
The council will probably wAve it though.  Wrong.

Apart from the fact that adults and children live in the vicinity and their health could be affected, no small thing, there is also the fact that rubbish will be brought into the area on more lorries causing traffic problems.

The existing traffic to and from the site is bad enough, you only have to travel on the A264 and have a lorry swing out from the slip road forcing you to either brake or swing out into the outside lane,  an accident waiting to happen.

The proposed North Horsham plan proposes that houses be built near the incinerator but who would want to buy a house there?

If Britaniacrest wishes to build another incinerator why can't they build in another area, Surrey maybe, or do they know that permission will defiantly refused?

It's a bad plan and must be refused.

As the tax payer helped fund the MBT facility, Horsham have done their bit.

There will be heavy toxic and noise pollution caused by HGV transportation.

Incineration will also increase Co2 levels, damaging both our health and the environment.

Increased incineration correlates with decreasing recycling.

The existing chimney you see when driving on the A24 or A264 is 28m tall. The proposed incinerator building will be 36m tall with a 95m chimney. This will be permanently lit so that aircraft do not hit it.

The World Health Organisation advises that areas near a waste incinerator should not be populated and yet this facility will be adjacent to the North Horsham Development with the plume heading over nearby conurbations.

I wish to express my objection in the strongest possible terms to this proposed construction of an incinerator in the North Horsham area.

As per the previously rejected application, I feel that this incinerator is not necessary for the area for the following reasons:
- other ways of waste management are available, and new cleaner technologies are being developed all the time and indeed the Government is starting to take notice of these
- the resultant environmental pollution near residential areas is not acceptable, especially given the number of children living in the greater Horsham area
- the taxpayer has already assisted funding a waste treatment facility in North Horsham (BIFFA Mechanical Biological Treatment Facility)
- if nothing else, it will be a permanent eyesore and blight on our natural environment and views around Horsham

I urge you to reject this application.
Y
387 Mrs Annamarie Stepney n/a, 103, Trafalgar Road, Horsham, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 2QL Object 17-APR-2018 I oppose this application the following grounds:
1-RECYCLING Vs INCINERATION: There is a huge demand for the reduction in use of plastics.  The Government are backing such initiatives.  An incinerator runs 24/7 365 days a year and requires huge amounts of high calorific material - one of the biggest being plastics.  With the current drive to reduce plastic use, what exactly will happen to this Incinerator as plastic use dwindles in time? Inevitably recycling rates and the impetus for WSCC to encourage them will fall if this goes ahead.  This will run at huge cost to the environment with increased levels of pollution, and to the detriment of local people's health. Furthermore, Britanicrest argues that the Incinerator is a better alternative to landfill.  It's been proven time and time again that incinerators do NOT replace the need for landfill.  Incineration reduces recycling (e.g. Case points being S.Wales and Derby Incinerators whereby local recycling collections have been stopped so they can use the high calorific items from waste to keep the incinerators burning at full efficiency! https://insidecroydon.com/2016/09/28/viridor-incinerator-doomed-to-be-our-splott-on-the-landscape/), produces waste (including toxic waste!), and that waste creates more pollution as it is then transported away to landfill.  
2-HEALTH ISSUES: There are no 'safe' levels of pollution.  There are no 'safe' Incinerators.  What is ?safe? as defined by Incinerator companies refers to ?safe? limits of poisons and pollutants that the current legislation allows.  So the measure of ?safe? comes down to the levels that are technically achievable with current technology.  The WHO (World Health Organisation) accepts that dioxins cause cancer.  The current ?safe? level for dioxin emissions is based on what limited studies have established to be a level at which there is no obvious and immediate harm to a fully grown adult. Children and foetuses, however, were discounted in all the government backed research despite being the most vulnerable groups and those most susceptible to toxins and poisons.  As a mother of a young child this is of great concern to me.  Health Protection Scotland, a division of the Scottish NHS, published a report ?Incineration of Waste and Reported Human Health Effects? in 2009 which reviewed the evidence available on the human health risks associated with incinerators. The report acknowledges that ?the lack of conclusive or consistent evidence does not preclude there being some adverse effect ? in other words, the absence of evidence does not equate to evidence of absence.  It is a fact that the Incinerator will emit PMs (particulate matter).  Public Health England state, 'There is no evidence for a threshold below which effects would not be expected. This means that current levels of particulate air pollution in the UK...have a significant impact on life expectancy of the population'.  As the mother of a young child, I am extremely concerned about the potential impact of the PMs to her health.  It is well researched and documented that people who live near to Incinerators experience poorer health and quality of life.  
3-WEST SUSSEX WASTE LOCAL PLAN, LOCATION ISSUES & SUSTAINABILITY: This application contradicts the objectives of the West Sussex Waste Local Plan (April 2014) in relation to various strategic objectives, and also in relation to specific policies too.
Y
388   Mr John Whitton 15 Stanford Orchard, Hollands Way, Warnham, Warnham, West Sussex, rh12 3rf Object 17-APR-2018 For a large number of reasons the proposed development is totally unsuitable for the area.
The appearance and size of the proposed new building in entirely out of keeping with the surrounding area. It is out of scale with the present neighbourhood, even to the extent of dwarfing the existing defunct industrial building. Attempts by the architect (as seen on his or her computer aided drawings) to ameliorate the impact and justify the appearance do not alter the fact that the proposed building is not in character with its surroundings.
This development will not just affect adjoining residents but be a huge blot on the landscape seen from far and wide. The bulk will be gargantuan.
Inevitably there will be great disturbance from increased traffic to and from the site and the congestion on the already overcrowded roads will be exacerbated.
The effect on the landscape is my greatest concern. If it is allowed to proceed it will be irreversible and a permanent blot on this beautiful Wealden landscape, which will be regretted for evermore.

I strongly object to the planning proposal to build an incinerator near Horsham. Britaniacrest propose to burn toxic materials which will emit gases, heavy metals and poisons into the atmosphere near to where my family lives and works. Other densely populated areas - Crawley and Horley - as well as drinking water reservoirs in Ardingly, Wierwood and Bewl Water will be affected too. These pollutants will impact farmland, livestock and our natural environment.

Please do not let this happen. What other options are there for the disposal of toxic materials? Why is an incinerator it being considered for this location? At a time when the detrimental effects of plastic waste is hitting the headlines and responsibility is being - quite rightly - levelled at individuals as well as big corporations - how can such a dangerous, toxic incinerator be contemplated or considered suitable for our district?

Please consider the health of the current and future residents of Sussex and Surrey. We should be protecting our counties at all costs - NOT being persuaded to sell our countryside and health off to Britaniarest or similar companies.

396 Mr Andrew Harvey -, 13, Edwards close, Horsham, RH123PL Object 17-APR-2018 Horsham is a rapidly growing town with many of the new developments located near to the proposed development appealing to young families in particular. The long term health impact particularly on children is impossible to determine even with the best current expertise. There is no demand or need other than commercial gain to have this site so close to a town like horsham.
  As well as the potential impact on local residents' health there will also be a significant risk to the environment. Areas such as Warnham wildlife reserve will likely be impacted by any pollution and the noise and sit created by the additional traffic the site will bring could be significant. The additional HGV traffic will also take a toll on the town's already pot holed roads and will inflict additional costs on local residents through taxation and potential damage to vehicles.
 the impact on local rivers particularly during times of heavy rain must also be considered- a large site like this will likely lead to some contamination of ground water no matter how careful the organisation is.
 In summary the direct health risks are sufficient to object to this application alone however there are also many other implications ( a few mentioned here- I'm sure others will raise more) that need to be considered before the council approves any such proposal. The council should be approving projects which bring real benefits to the local community- this project besides a small number of jobs is unlikely to bring anything for any of us to be proud of in the future.

398 Mrs Elisabeth Hughson 13, Heron Way, Horsham, rh13 6dp Object 17-APR-2018 The haulage company, Britaniacrest wants to build an incinerator to burn toxic materials at Wealden Brickworks near Horsham. The process will emit greenhouse gases, acidic gases, heavy metals and poisons into the atmosphere just west of the Sussex High Weald AONB. The site is also upwind of one of the County¿s most densely populated areas (Crawley and Horley), and of a number of important drinking water reservoirs (Ardingly, Wierwood and Bewl Water).

CPRE Sussex¿s Dr Roger Smith is warning that the list of substances involved reads like ¿an environmental horror story.¿ They include heavy metals such as arsenic and mercury which are cumulative and could cause irreversible damage to the environment and human health when they come to ground.

¿The cumulative impact of dioxins and of any other persistent pollutants emitted by the facility, after coming to earth, seems not to have been assessed,¿ he says.

¿Mapping, showing where pollutants emitted by the proposed facility would come to earth and the extent of resulting ground fall/downwind-hazard areas ought to have been provided for public scrutiny, as part of the consultation. However, the data submitted with this application was obtained at Charlwood, eight miles to the north, and not from the site of the proposed facility.¿

CPRE Sussex is now demanding a full investigation into how and where the pollutants emitted by the facility, individually, collectively, and cumulatively over time, could or would impact on farmland and livestock and the natural environment, including habitats, biodiversity and ecology.

¿We take the air we breathe and the water we drink for granted,¿ adds Dr Smith, ¿but this proposal puts both at risk.¿

Britaniacrest¿s plans also include a vast 95m chimney which, say campaigners would have a far reaching visual impact, blighting the countryside for miles around.

¿By the company¿s own admission the incinerator will be seen for miles around,¿ says CPRE Sussex Director, Kia Trainor. ¿This would blight the natural beauty of vast areas of rural landscape within Sussex and Surrey.¿

¿CPRE Sussex believes that to permit such a monstrous industrial incinerator in the heart of Sussex countryside would inflict far reaching environmental damage and should be refused on every level.¿

As a long-term resident of Horsham, I totally agree. An incinerator of this size and environmental impact must be easy money for HDC - but the cost to health, the environment and the local impact FAR outweighs this.

As a resident of the Horsham area I would like to strongly object to the proposed incinerator being built :
Planning ref: WSCC/015/18/NH at Wealden Brickworks, Langhurstwood Road, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 4QD
The proposals for an incinerator does not meet WSCC waste plan:
Strategic Objective 5: to make provision for a new transfer, recycling and treatment facilities as close as possible to where waste arises. The scale and throughput of the proposed plant is incompatible with the disposal of local waste and will attract material from outside of the county.
Strategic Objective 10: To protect and, where possible, enhance the natural and historic environment and resources of the County. There is no element of the proposals that will enhance the natural environment.

404  Dawn Pope 3, Station Road, Warnham, Horsham, RH12 3SR Object 17-APR-2018 Dear Sir or Madam,

Planning ref: WSCC/015/18/NH at Wealden Brickworks, Langhurstwood Road, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 4QD
I wish to strongly object against this planning application for an incinerator.

Visual Impact
The chimney of the brickworks is 26.5m high.  The proposed incinerator building will be taller than this chimney some 35.92m in height which is taller than the  existing chimney which is already visible above the treeline. Therefore, just the new proposed building itself will tower over the treeline.
The building will be bigger than Horsham¿s shopping centre.
The new proposed chimney will be 95m tall - it will be seen from far and wide, including areas of outstanding natural beauty.  By the proposers own submission it will be seen as far as Box Hill.


Light Pollution
For the CAA to demand middle and top of the stack is lit at night is due to flight paths.  The CAA would not be demanding such comprehensive lighting if the routes did not go over the proposed site.  
The stack will be lit like a Christmas tree producing significant increase in light pollution from the plant and the skyline.

Noise Pollution
As the site will be operating 24/7 it will create noise above the ambient noise enjoyed by rural areas of 30-35dB.  This ambient noise levels decrease at night.

There is no offer of compensation for noise and light pollution to the surrounding communities.

There is no compensation being offered to those whose home will be devalued by the building of an industrial incinerator of this magnitude adjacent to their homes.

Air Quality
The air quality is declining in the area due to the congestion surrounding our parish.  Lack of investment in highways means that we are subjected to cut through traffic on our country lanes everyday bringing car pollution to our rural doorsteps.  WSCC in their recent Connect magazine detailed that vehicles, 80% of nitrogen dioxide concentration at the roadside is caused by road transport.

This proposal would bring lorries on the dangerous A24, congested A264, A29, M23, and as waste will be imported into Horsham to burn.

Recycling
WSCC have shown a 2% increase in recycling and so to burn would captivate the council into long term contracts to keep a hungry incinerator burning.  It is inevitable that recycling will drop, as is the case in London.
The Biffa bio-mechanical digester that taxpayers paid for to deal with household waste will virtually become redundant as the proposer has stated that they intend to burn black sack waste as well as industrial.
Burning waste is short sighted and damaging to the long-term prosperity to the planet on demands for resources.

Not Needed
It would seem that West Sussex already has given planning permission for an incinerator at Ford in 2014.  With an incinerator already permitted to be built on the coast it is highly questionable why an incinerator is needed on the edge of the county.
NB Gatwick already has an incinerator, which burns waste from Manor Royal Business Park.

UK Win are behind the political cross party Early Day Motion (581)* to place a moratorium on new incinerators because there is not enough waste to feed the incinerators currently in use and being built in the UK, but this legislation will come way too late for West Sussex.
Research increasingly shows that incineration decreases the rate of recycling and with the amount of plastic in production set to decrease dramatically in the next few years, what will this Horsham incinerator burn?

Y
405 Mrs J. Aldrich Graylands Farm, 1, Langhurstwood Road, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 4QD Object 17-APR-2018 I strongly object to an incinerator being built on the edge of Horsham.
Britaniacrest has no restriction on their planning permission to allow domestic waste at their site. So while we are sorting our waste at home, washing plastic waste and bottles etc to do our bit, they will be taking other peoples domestic waste from outside the area and burning it. This is not acceptable. There will be more HGV's on the local roads which cause more noise and emissions. BC is not asking for anymore lorries now but if they need to have more in the future they will just apply for planning to increase them and get it, as they increased their tonnage before. We already suffer with the continual increase in lorries on Langhurstwood road. The mud, dust and litter  they cause has got so bad over the last few years, this will only get worse. The litter from these lorries on the A264 is terrible.  
The increase in noise at night will not be acceptable, we already hear the droning from the MBT plant at night with the windows open,  no-one has come to my home to listen to the noise we already have to put up with. We do not want to look at a lit up chimney at night either.
With the new development in North Horsham starting soon, an incinerator is too close to even more homes and schools. There will be green spaces and play areas just metres away from this site. The health implications are not clear. How can you risk any one becoming ill from this?
Horsham should not be taking commercial and domestic waste from miles away, we have the MBT plant, that is enough.
Please listen to the residents of Horsham and the surrounding villages, we don't want this. This does not give any benefits to the environment or the residents of Horsham and the surrounding villages.

406   Mr Glynn Hughes 9, Winterbourne, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 5JW Object 17-APR-2018 This planning application has been rejected before so it is unbelievable britanniacrest have reapplied. It is fact that despite so called guarantees of air quality of emissions the facility will emit toxic gasses and particles. This facility is located close to thousands of houses, schools and businesses and therefore should not  be allowed. In addition more development is planned which will make the proposal more unviable. There are numerous cases of incinerators which have failed and have  had to be closed down because of toxic emissions and proximity to housing.  Furthermore my house will lose value and I will sue Britannicrest and HDC for the loss in value if the proposal is allowed to go ahead. I therefore STRONGLY OBJECT to this proposal. Y

I understand that the plans for an incinerator have been resubmitted (ref WSCC/015/18/NH).

408 Mrs Louise Holt Temple Wood, Temple Lane, Capel, RH5 5HJ Concern Raised 18-APR-2018 Concerned about a massive industrial scale incinerator that will severely impact Warnham, Horsham and the wider area, visually, environmentally and economically - increasing noise, traffic and emissions.  
Traffic generation/access/highway safety; the Warnham area and the A24 are dangerous already, with out additional industrial vehicles.  It is an all too familiar sight to see the remnants of crashed vehicles in the vicinity. It is not uncommon for the A24 from Dorking to Horsham to be shut for serious road traffic accidents. Additional industrial traffic will increase the risk of collisions.
Emissions will include dust/odour/fumes; the site is only a mile away from Wanham Primary and along the direction of prevailing wind to Rusper and it¿s primary school.  The young are particularly at risk from harm by airborne pollutants.
Effect on landscape or character of area; the site will be very visible on the approach to Horsham from the A24.  It will significantly blight the landscape. It will change the character of the outskirts of the town, which would harm other local beneficial economic development.

409 Mr John Terry 10, Thatchers Close, Horsham, RH12 5TL Object 18-APR-2018 Horsham has a Biological Treatment plant and to have an incinerator to dispose of waste from others is not beneficial/fair to residents.  This plant will pollute the environment and cause transport problems. A massive plant/chimney is detrimental to the green belt and Horsham environment. Y
410  Nicola Curtis - Object 18-APR-2018 Dear Sir and Madam

I feel there is enough pressure on the Horsham area development plans to consider including a large incinerator within a close proximity to the resident population.  The fumes will be brought down into the surrounding area by the wind and weather conditions.

When the weather is cold and the wind is coming from the north east we still experience very unpleasant smells of rotting refuse from the tip at Warnham brickworks.  Biffa have been landscaping the huge mound of refuse for many years and efforts have been made to stop the smells coming up the valley to Warnham but it still continues.  

Also I would like the planners to consider the fact that, with the possibility of increased air traffic over our area,  that the aircraft will be flying through the gases from the chimney.  Who knows at this stage what pollution and chemical changes this will cause.

Our ever increasing community do not need a further polluting industry in the area.  

Yours faithfully

411  Jonathan B Smith - Object 18-APR-2018 I would like to register an objection to the Horsham Incinerator planning application ( as above).

This will bring unnecessary large scale industrial development into the Horsham area degrading the local natural environment and particularly increasing road traffic considerably with large waste carrying vehicles. Once established it is only likely to increase this traffic putting pressure on already congested local roads not designed (or likely to be upgraded) to handle this traffic.

412 Mrs Diane Brassington - Object 18-APR-2018 I would like to object to the proposed incinerator for north Horsham for the following reasons

1 -the site is to small for the development proposed. The building will dominate the skyline
2 This works against our recycling plans, and I thought the Mechanical & Biological waste treatment facility was an alternative and much more environmentally friendly.
3 The incinerator would require more rubbish than Horsham district would provide, therefore Lorries will be adding to the pollution levels in the area bringing rubbish in to keep the incinerator going 24 hours a day.
4 Can Horsham Council guarantee that an incinerator is completely safe and absolutely no pollution would be added to the area, I have not read that they are considered safe, and certainly there would be added pollution from Lorries.
5 In view of the north Horsham development, why would anyone propose an incinerator so close to the proposed new schools etc.

I look forward to hearing your decision to reject this proposal

The site is too small for the development proposed.
¿ The building design, size and location will create a view of intense industrialisation
overshadowing and causing long-term damage to the character of Horsham and Warnham
and the local environment. Harmonisation has not been achieved.
¿ The waste source extends significantly beyond West Sussex¿s waste needs and so is contrary
to the West Sussex Waste plan.
¿ West Sussex¿s Waste plan aims to protect, and where possible, enhance the health and
amenity of residents, businesses and visitors. This cannot be guaranteed if the proposal goes
ahead with resultant and cumulative pollution, land contamination, and poor air quality.
¿ Potential impacts of incinerator traffic, sought in advance under planning applications
WSCC/018/14/NH and WSCC/021/15/NH. Sustainable methods of transport are not being
used
¿ Cumulative effects of waste processing on the local area and how this is at odds with the
need to expand the residential footprint in very close proximity
¿ Loss of amenity for residents, including: noise, odour, traffic, light pollution
¿ Inadequate public consultation of Horsham District residents, including input into the design
and sharing of the Environmental Statement
¿ Limited benefit of the energy developed as a by-product of the incineration process
¿ Increased risk of fire and resultant health

417  Tito Sacchi - Object 18-APR-2018 Re: Objection to WSCC/015/18/NH

I would like to record my strong objection to the proposed plan for an incinerator for the following reasons:

1. Environmental. The plant will cause excessive air pollution. Levels have already been on the increase due to the close Gatwick airport and regular traffic increase along the Horsham bypass and A24.

2. Health. The pollution will certainly be detrimental to resident¿s health and quality of life in the area, with a negative effects on asthma, allergies, etc.

3.Traffic. An increased number of hg vehicles will travel to and from the site, with effect on noise levels, damage to country lanes and lead to potential accidents with other vehicles.

4. Noise. Noise from new hgv traffic as well as the waste processing itself will have an impact on the quality of life and the population enjoying the countryside in the area.

5. Scale and location. The size of the plant is not in keeping with other smaller rural operations and facilities in the area. It has the scale of an industrial plant so it should therefore belong to a more industrial area of the region.

I would be grateful to receive assurances that our concerns are being taken into account. Please kept us up to date on the status of this application.

420   Mr Jonathan Light Greystone Quarry, Rancombe Lane, Southerham, Lewes, BN8 6JN Support 19-APR-2018 Please accept the following email in support of the need for the development proposed at Wealden Brickworks Site, Langhurstwood Road, Horsham, West Sussex.

As correctly identified in the non-technical summary: ¿it has been the objective of the UK and Europe for many years to reduce the quantity of waste being sent to landfill. This can only be achieved if there is infrastructure available to allow the waste to be recycled or recovered¿.

There is a need for further landfill alternatives for waste arising in the south east of the UK and more specifically a requirement for new facilities to allow commercial and industrial waste to be treated to a high standard. The proposed facility provides a further quantifiable benefit through the generation of electricity for consumption in the UK.  This is a widely welcomed and efficient practice for waste management; the Defra website states: ¿[w]e support efficient energy recovery from waste¿.

At the present time there is additional need for UK based facilities as historic waste export markets are closing. Furthermore, there is a degree of political uncertainty attached to the sustainability of EU export routes for the treatment of UK waste.

For the above reasons facilities such as the 3Rs proposal by Britaniacrest Ltd are badly needed for the treatment of commercial and industrial waste.

I wish to register my objection to the proposed building of a waste incinerator in North Horsham (WSCC/015/18/NH) on the following grounds:

*   The inevitable increased levels of pollution which will be emitted and drift over built up areas.

*.  Increased traffic caused by HGVs delivering waste to the plant possibly 24hrs a day. The roads around Horsham are already overcrowded due to the large number of houses being built, add in large HGVs and the situation is much worse.

* the size of the proposed buildings and chimney will be an eyesore which will be seen for miles around

*  with the drive to increase recycling, the need for a large incinerator is reduced

*. Horsham already has Biological Treatment facility. This area has done its fair share to deal with waste management

Even though efforts have been described to minimise levels of CO2, NO2 and particulates, it is clear the activity of the incinerator will result in elevations in the surrounding area. This could also under certain environmental conditions mix with pollutants from the greater London area and elevate levels  higher than has been suggested by the proposal.  My concerns are based on relatively recent data suggesting the role for particulates and NO2 in driving airway sensitisation to allergens and increasing the potential  for children in our area to become asthmatic.  With these new findings reported safe level of these gases must be considered with some doubt.  Therefore I think we should try to minimise any increases of these substances into our local environment and hence I would like to strongly object to this proposal.

436 Mrs Ruth Garner 4, Ramsey Close, Horsham, Rh12 5af Object 20-APR-2018 Main objection is not fulfilling WSCC plans for waste as Britannia intend to import their waste from anywhere necessary to make it commercially viable, NOT just West Sussex.
There will be extra costs for West Sussex residents, both in terms of financial impacts such as road infrastructure required and in terms of health as nobody really knows the effect of the stuff coming out of the chimney (and from the exhausts of all the lorries moving through residential areas).
There is no need for any new incinerators in Western Europe as the existing ones need to run at capacity and there is not enough material to supply any more.
Y
437 Mrs Aleda Kay 41, Timms Close, Horsham, RH12 4TN Object 20-APR-2018 Regarding planning application: WSCC/015/18/NH

I wish to strongly object to this and hope the council is strong enough to turn this down.

It is not in the local or national interest. There are thought to be too many incinerator plants for waste already so this could be a horrible white elephant.

The chimney is too tall and will blight the beautiful countryside. It is inappropriate for it to be located right by a whole new community of North Horsham, this is against WHO guidelines. It will destroy any community benefits from that development.

Its ill advised to commit to something that needs to be fed 24 hours a day and can't be turned off.
It encourages the supply of waste that could be avoided with effective policy.

It will create air pollution which will cause health problems that will cause a burden on the health service which will cost the taxpayer.  Easier to tax rubbish at source to reduce usage. Govt need to tax the manufacturers on their packaging (to take a full cost of any disposal into account) to encourage change and a reduction in waste to insist manufacturers turn to more viable products .  Technology in this area is moving fast and supermarkets are under huge pressure now to address the unnecessary packaging. We do not want to see waste being burned when there are better alternatives.

There is a cultural shift at the national level so this proposal is ill advised at this time.  At the national level we are seeing bans on plastic straws and return schemes for plastic bottles by putting a value on rubbish we are reducing waste. Blue planet has inspired this nation to say enough is enough, this proposal only encourages more waste. The plastic bag charging has been a huge success and indicates what can be achieved in a small amount of time. Our council has recently moved over to less bin collections indicating a firm policy of less waste more recycling.

The technology has a bad record worldwide and is not a proven technology-no record of successful operation on an industrial scale, it conflicts with meeting recycling targets which the local authority  and country is committed to. There is not the infrastructure in place to handle vast amounts of waste being transported around the countryside.

The main roads around Horsham's perimeter are already very busy and laden with rubbish from trucks transporting waste to sites/landfill and this would only get worse under this proposal. This transportation of waste by road  is inefficient and causes emissions.

The environment minister Therese Coffey told the Commons: "In environmental terms, it is generally better to bury plastic than to burn it."Greenpeace says we should reduce, reuse, and recycle, in that order.
"When we get to the stage of deciding whether to burn or bury waste, we have already failed, failed some more and then failed again. "However, it is safer to contain that failure than to spread it through the atmosphere in the form of toxic gases."

Will our local government fail this community or opt to help us further reduce waste in the first place?

There will be an increase in heavy haulage to the local roads, increasing congestion and adding further road safety concerns to local road users, pedestrians and cyclists.  i.e. presently no pedestrian crossings or safe bike crossing on the A264.

Thirdly, this facility will increase dust and fumes in the highly populated area of North Horsham, which directly conflicts with the new planned residential areas of North Horsham.

440 Mr Andrew Eggs 1, Pryors Wood, Kingsfold, West Sussex, RH12 3SZ Object 20-APR-2018 Dear Strategic Planning Department,

I am writing as a local resident to object to the planning application to build an incinerator at The Brickworks, Langhurst Road, North Horsham.

My objection is based on the following grounds:

1.            The incinerator is contrary to WSCC Waste Local Plan as transfer, recycling and treatment facilities should be as close as possible to where waste arises. The scale indicates a far wider area beyond will be sought, especially as increased recycling regulations will mean a reduced supply of local waste to fuel the incinerator.
2.            The incinerator will therefore result in a significant increase in HGV traffic, in and around Horsham¿s already congested road network.  
3.            There is already a well-documented surplus incinerator capacity in mainland Northern Europe, with potential decommissioning of incinerators so there is no need to build a new one in Horsham. Planning permission was granted for an incinerator in Ford West Sussex in 2014, so again there is no need for another incinerator in Horsham.  
4.            Emission levels will be detrimental to the local community and countryside. There is no long term understanding of the fumes(toxic) impact to communities, countryside, wildlife and farming.  Also, the location is too close to the local conservation area.  
5.            With Gatwick airport seeking a 2nd runway (recent consideration of using its emergency runway to increase capacity) there is an unknown impact on the spread of emissions with aircraft vortex.  
6.            Given that one tonne of waste burnt gives off one tonne of CO2 it makes no sense to generate electricity so inefficiently when we are trying to decarbonise our energy supplies.    

I hope you will conclude that based on the critical points listed above, the application should be rejected.
Please do contact me by email if you wish to discuss further?  

Regards

441 Mrs Faye Francis 82, Depot Road, Horsham, RH13 5HF Object 21-APR-2018 As I understand, this incinerator will not benefit Horsham in anyway but will give profit to a private company.  Furthermore, the waste transported to the incinerator will come from outside Sussex. The location of this incinerator will impact the air of Horsham, surrounding villages and new developments in a negative way. This area of Sussex needs a new Hospital not a building that will contribute to generations requiring medical help because the air they breathe was severely tainted by a council greedy to please these profiteering developers. Y
442 Mr Andrew Baldwin 5, Dutchells Copse, Horsham, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 5PD Object 21-APR-2018 I am very much opposed to this application. Whilst I have real concerns about the health implications of living close to an incinerator the main reasons for my objection are the enormous size of the place in a rural location, 300 ft chimney and all the vehicle movements. Incinerators need to be constantly fed on waste and in order to do this they will be taking in waste from all over not just West Sussex.  

I also note Members of Parliament are discussing having a ban on all new incinerators.
Y
443 Mrs Maria Heron Ardea, 23, Highdown Way, Horsham, RH125JJ Object 21-APR-2018 The proposed location of this industrial incinerator will lie on the western edge of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Not only that, its location also lies a few miles south of the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a few miles east of the South Downs National Park. That aside, the increased traffic movement, impact on the local roads and the irreversible damage to the landscape will be vast. Not forgetting that in this day and age of reusing, recycling and recovery and the promoting of less pollution and cleaner air, the building of this incinerator would be in conflict with the councils¿ waste management and recycling schemes. Lastly, and most importantly, serious consideration must be taken into what the impact of the emissions of particulates, heavy metals and dioxins from this incinerator would have on our public health and climate change.

446 Mrs Aleda Kay 41, Timms Close, Horsham, RH12 4TN Object 21-APR-2018 Regarding planning application: WSCC/015/18/NH

I wish to strongly object to this and hope the council is strong enough to turn this down.

It is not in the local or national interest. There are thought to be too many incinerator plants for waste already so this could be a horrible white elephant.

The chimney is too tall and will blight the beautiful countryside. It is inappropriate for it to be located right by a whole new community of North Horsham, this is against WHO guidelines. It will destroy any community benefits from that development.

Its ill advised to commit to something that needs to be fed 24 hours a day and can't be turned off.
It encourages the supply of waste that could be avoided with effective policy.

It will create air pollution which will cause health problems that will cause a burden on the health service which will cost the taxpayer.  Easier to tax rubbish at source to reduce usage. Govt need to tax the manufacturers on their packaging (to take a full cost of any disposal into account) to encourage change and a reduction in waste to insist manufacturers turn to more viable products .  Technology in this area is moving fast and supermarkets are under huge pressure now to address the unnecessary packaging. We do not want to see waste being burned when there are better alternatives.

There is a cultural shift at the national level so this proposal is ill advised at this time.  At the national level we are seeing bans on plastic straws and return schemes for plastic bottles by putting a value on rubbish we are reducing waste. Blue planet has inspired this nation to say enough is enough, this proposal only encourages more waste. The plastic bag charging has been a huge success and indicates what can be achieved in a small amount of time. Our council has recently moved over to less bin collections indicating a firm policy of less waste more recycling.

The technology has a bad record worldwide and is not a proven technology-no record of successful operation on an industrial scale, it conflicts with meeting recycling targets which the local authority and country is committed to. There is not the infrastructure in place to handle vast amounts of waste being transported around the countryside.

The main roads around Horsham's perimeter are already laden with rubbish from trucks transporting waste to sites/landfill and this would only get worse under this proposal. This transportation of waste by road is inefficient and causes emissions.

The environment minister Therese Coffey told the Commons: "In environmental terms, it is generally better to bury plastic than to burn it."Greenpeace says we should reduce, reuse, and recycle, in that order.
"When we get to the stage of deciding whether to burn or bury waste, we have already failed, failed some more and then failed again. "However, it is safer to contain that failure than to spread it through the atmosphere in the form of toxic gases."

Will our local government fail this community or opt to help us further reduce waste in the first place?

With fortnightly refuse collections and recycling encouraged as much as possible, why do we even need this? Of it's fur another area then we definitely don't want it dumped here. I worry fit the future of our children and this area. If there's too much waste, stop building so many houses too. Y
456 Mrs Cathryn Uphill 80, Earles Meadow, Horsham, RH12 4HR Object 21-APR-2018 The size of the construction is excessively large and high for the site.
The scale of this plant seems to be seeking waste from outside the local area and thus will encourage commercial waste being transferred over great distance to feed a very large incinerator.
There is nothing to suggest that this will enhance the local area in fact it will detract and blight being visible from 15kms away in areas of Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We should question the pollution from the emissions including lead, mercury, dioxins, the increase in road traffic and the impact it will have on business travel in delays and detrimental impact on Horsham as a whole.
Policy W11:  It is questionable if this policy will be met by this proposal, as it will be seen from rural villages and have a detrimental impact on Horsham and surrounding rural communities.
Policy W12: The Britaniacrest proposal does not meet the criteria of this policy in any way.
Policy W19:  The proposals will require aviation lighting as well as have a night-time noise impact on the neighboring communities creating light pollution for the area.
WSCC have shown a 2% increase in recycling. Burning waste may hold the council in long term contracts to keep a hungry incinerator burning. It is inevitable that recycling will drop, as is the case in London. Government is already beginning to consider compelling evidence that there is over capacity of waste incineration in the UK. The experience of the EU is that they have to import waste in order to feed their incinerators and there is a correlation between increased incineration and decreased recycling.
The proposer has stated that they intend to burn black sack waste as well as industrial waste.  WSCC taxpayers paid for the Biffa biomechanical digester, and visitors to the public exhibition have reported being told by Britaniacrest that the digester would become redundant due to the incinerator. This is an unacceptable waste of taxpayer¿s money.
As the site will operate 24/7 it will create noise above the ambient noise enjoyed by rural areas of 30-35dB.   Ambient noise levels decrease at night and Britaniacrest have admitted that they are struggling to reduce the noise to a level compatible with a rural location.
The proposal does nothing to hide the impact it will have on the rural countryside for which it will sit amongst, being totally over powering and intrusive day and night as it sits above the natural tree height canopy.
The intrusion of the stack will be particularly intimidating at times when exhaust plumes are being emitted. The application documents state that the plume height could range from 6m to over 400m from the top of the 96m chimney.
At the operational stage it is acknowledged in the application that at night, with low background noise levels, the noise exposure would be increased by 6dB at three locations. This is intolerable for local residents.
Incineration plants in the EU are already being decommissioned because reduced availability of suitable waste has significantly reduced the amount of material available to fuel the burners.  Many countries are now having to import material to incinerate.
With the increased push in the UK to reduce our reliance on plastics and recycle more, many experts predict that within 5 years we will have solved the plastics issue. Industry is changing and will no longer rely on plastic packaging.
Lastly, I must say that I love living in Horsham but will definitely consider moving my family away from this pollution monster if it is built.  We have enough pollution to breathe already from aircraft overhead and the current amount of traffic on our roads.  This building will damage the reputation of our fine town and damage the value of our properties.

I would like to object to the above planning application for the new ¿recycling¿ facility in North Horsham.

My reasons are as follows:-
1. There is already a recycling facility run by BIFFA at the site which is already detrimental to the area.This already has enough giant Virador type lorries entering the area.

2.This new facility  will only be for built for financial gain for Brittanicrest and its agents and will be of no benefit to the residents of Horsham nor WSSC.

3.The facility will have waste transported from a wide area so HGV¿s will be arriving at the site from all the A roads feeding the area at all times of day so introducing further traffic and wear and tear on the already busy roads.The vehicles are large,dirty and polluting.

4. This type of facility should not be sited anywhere near to a residential area so how can anybody agree to such an application.

Please reject this application unanimously, it is not required, it has no benefit to the Horsham Community. It is not wanted.

Yours Faithfully,

As a resident of the Horsham area I would like to strongly object to the proposed incinerator being built :

Planning ref: WSCC/015/18/NH at Wealden Brickworks, Langhurstwood Road, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 4QD

The proposals for an incinerator do not comply with WSCC waste plan:

Strategic Objective 5: to make provision for a new transfer, recycling and treatment facilities as close as possible to where waste arises. The scale and throughput of the proposed plant is incompatible with the disposal of local waste and will attract material from outside of the county.

Strategic Objective 10: To protect and, where possible, enhance the natural and historic environment and resources of the County. There is no element of the proposals that will enhance the natural environment.

Policy W11: Character. Proposals for waste development will be permitted provided that they would not have an unacceptable impact on: (a) the character, distinctiveness, and sense of place of the different areas of the County¿¿

The proposal will have a dramatic effect on the character of Horsham without counting the air pollution which is going to be generated

So I believe it does not meet the criteria.

464 Mr Peter Edwards 6, Foxwood, Kingsfold, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 3ST Object 21-APR-2018 WSCC must find an alternative location for the waste incinerator. Kingsfold often used to get smoke and fumes from the old brickworks where the proposed incinerator would be located. We are about 70m higher than that site and in direct line of fire for any fumes when the wind is in that direction. There re too many residents living in the surrounding area. Find a less populated area for the build.

In addition the incinerator is contrary to WSCC Waste Local Plan as transfer, recycling and treatment facilities should be as close as possible to where waste arises. The scale indicates a far wider area beyond will be sought, especially as increased recycling regulations will mean a reduced supply of local waste to fuel the incinerator. This will result in a significant increase in HGV traffic, in and around Horsham¿s already congested road network.

here is already a well-documented surplus incinerator capacity in mainland Northern Europe, with potential decommissioning of incinerators so there is no need to build a new one in Horsham. Planning permission was granted for an incinerator in Ford, West Sussex in 2014, (Which we understand has not yet been built) so again there is no need for another incinerator in Horsham.  

Emission levels will be detrimental to the local community and countryside. There is no long term understanding of the fumes(toxic) impact to communities, countryside, wildlife and farming.  The location is too close to the local conservation area.

With Gatwick airport seeking a 2nd runway (recent consideration of using its emergency runway to increase capacity) there is an unknown impact on the spread of emissions with aircraft vortex.

As 1 tonne of waste burnt gives off one tonne of CO2 it makes no sense to generate electricity so inefficiently when we are trying to decarbonise our energy supplies.

I object to the application and progress of an incinerator in Horsham,  it is not safe carrying waste across county borders polluting our air with CO2 and Nox emissions in order to feed the incinerator.

With regard to the planning application of the Horsham incinerator,  I reject the plans as taxpayers from Horsham have already helped fund the BIFFA Mechanical biological treatment facility in North Horsham, as already said,  Horsham have already done their bit!

I believe it is a private business which wants to profit from this and not the council and therefore is unnecessary.

We do not need a 36m building permanently lit (to avoid aircraft).

Down with the planning application.

469 Mrs Lorna Dimmock 37, 37, Barleycroft, Cowfold, West Sussex, RH13 8DP Object 22-APR-2018 Highways England are cutting down trees, Networkrail are removing trees from their railway lines,building projects around Horsham are removing mature trees;all these provide us with oxygen to breathe. One mature tree provides enough oxygen in a year for 10 adults. The trees purify the air we breathe and so are vital what with all the pollutants being added to it by Gatwick, increased road traffic caused by lorries bringing waste to us from the south east and the toxic particles emitted from the 95m chimney (which needs to be that high to disperse the toxins higher into the atmosphere).

We are discouraged from having bonfires & open fires due to polluting the air; this project will pollute the air with the toxic fallout from the waste disposal. It will affect the health of a huge number of Sussex population's health resulting in an increase of respiratory problems.

In addition, the infertility report/study carried out by Dr Marilyn Glenville, on the effect of toxins on the fertility & menstruation of girls highlights this and makes a direct correlation to the air we breathe and the damage to the female reproductive system. You can be sure that more academic research will be done in the future and could prove to make this project even more controversial should you choose to continue with this application.

Horsham is an area that is already having an enormous amount of homes built thus increasing the local population. It will increase demand disproportionately on the NHS due to respiratory illnesses and fertility problems caused by this project. There maybe other effects to health that I am not aware of but I hope you would commission studies by unbiased agencies to appraise you of the consequences.

There will be the increase of heavy vehicles on country roads that the council cannot maintain now.
Waste is a problem but it needs addressing back at source not just at end point.

Please think again, really seriously. It could be your family members whose lives will be shortened due to poor air quality, or your daughters/granddaughters who find they are unable to conceive through breathing poisoned air as a result of this incinerator being built. Real people to you and to me, not just unknown people who are nothing but numbers to the people in power.

It beggars belief that any such plan should be countenanced that is adjacent to residential development in North Horsham and the Horsham/Crawley connurbation against the advice of the World Health Organisation.

The size of the construction is excessive large & high. It will have a major impact on Horsham & surrounding villages and potentially Surrey areas of outstanding natural beauty.

Strategic Objective 5: The scale of this plant seems to be seeking waste from outside the local area & will encourage commercial waste being transferred over great distance to feed a very large incinerator.

Strategic Objective 10: There is no element of the proposals that will protect or enhance the natural environment.

Strategic Objective 11: This will enhance the local area, it will detract & blight being visible from 15kms away in areas of Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The pollution from the emissions including lead, mercury, dioxins, the increase in road traffic and the impact it will have on business travel in delays & detrimental impact on Horsham as a whole.

Policy W12: High Quality Developments. The Britaniacrest proposal does not meet the criteria set out in this policy.

Policy W19: Public Health and Amenity. The proposals will require aviation lighting as well as have a night-time noise impact on the neighbouring communities creating light pollution for the area.

Light Pollution
For the CAA to demand middle and top of the stack is lit at night is due to flight paths. The CAA would not be demanding such comprehensive lighting if the routes did not go over the proposed site.

The mapping of routes included by the proposers does not include the departure route that flies over North Horsham. The mapping does not show arrivals.  The stack will be lit like a Christmas tree producing significant increase in light pollution from the plant and the skyline.

Recycling
The proposer has stated that they intend to burn black sack waste as well as industrial.WSCC taxpayers paid for the Biffa biomechanical digester, and visitors to the public exhibition have reported being told by Britaniacrest that the digester would become redundant due to the incinerator. This is an unacceptable waste of taxpayers money.

Burning waste is short sighted and damaging to the long-term prosperity and well-being of the environment.

Noise Pollution
As the site will operate 24/7 it will create noise above the ambient noise enjoyed by rural areas of 30-35dB.

Ambient noise levels decrease at night and Britaniacrest have admitted that they are struggling to reduce the noise to a level compatible with a rural location.

Visual Impact of the development
The proposal does nothing to hide the impact it will have on the rural countryside for which it will sit amongst, being totally over powering and intrusive day and night as it sits above the natural tree height canopy.

The intrusion of the stack will be particularly intimidating at times when exhaust plumes are being emitted. The application documents state that the plume height could range from 6m to over 400m from the top of the 96m chimney.

Noise intrusion
At the operational stage it is acknowledge in the application that at night, with low background noise levels, the noise exposure would be increased by 6dB at three locations. This would seem a significant increase in noise that local residents would have to tolerate.

The Environmental Arguments
Research increasingly indicates that incineration reduces recycling. Incineration plants in the EU are already being decommissioned because reduced availability of suitable waste has significantly reduced the amount of material available to fuel the burners. Many countries are now having to import material to incinerate.

There is absolutely no requirement for an incinerator in this area and a number of studies have already shown that to provide sufficient fuel for the incinerator it would have to be imported into Horsham from other parts of the country. Given the location of the proposed site and the negative impact of increased traffic, emissions, visual impact of the exceptionally tall chimney etc this is the wrong site for such a development.

The site proposed is too small for such an incinerator, access would be through a substantially residential area, the visual, noise and health impact would be necessarily negative, and all to provide a facility which is not required in this area.  I therefore object strenuously to this application.

I can only assume the proposed plan will have a similar detrimental and further reaching effect.

Having read the request from CPRE Sussex for clarification on the toxicity of the proposed incinerator, and read reports of the similar facility built in Newhaven, I am very concerned for the environmental damage to the surrounding area, including Sussex High Weald AONB and to the local Water Reservoirs.

Also of concern will be the increased traffic pollution from heavy vehicles bring waste in from around the country to fuel the incinerator.

Finally, studies are showing increased incineration has an effect on recycling.
The current headlines and publicity on plastic pollution worries me that and ¿easy fix¿ will be incineration, moving the pollution to another form and location.

478  Norman Campbell - Object 22-APR-2018 I wish to object to the planning application for an incinerator at North Horsham (planning ref: WSCC/015/18/NH)

1. The World Health Organisation advises that areas close to a waste incinerator should not be populated and this application would site the incinerator in the north Horsham area populated by housing.
2. The existing chimney is 28m tall, the new building would be 36m tall and the chimney 95m tall. This would be an eye sore and totally out of character for the area and the planned North Horsham development.
3. Waste to feed the incinerator would be brought into the area using large HGVs adding to pollution and damage to the surrounding roads.
4. The incinerator would add to CO2 and noxious gas levels in the area damaging health.
5. The proposal is purely for profit, proposed and funded by a private developer.

479 The Murphy Family - Object 22-APR-2018 I am writing with concern's regarding the Britaniacrest incinerator.
I am also not writing this email with a not in my back yard approach.
I fully understand and am not ignorant to the fact that waste has to be disposed of.

I cannot however understand the economical sense from Horsham district council thinking that going ahead with this incinerator is going to help and encourage people to purchase new properties going to be built in the surrounding area.


Recycling should be top priority regarding waste not burning rubbish that should be reused. Two weeks ago following a waste lorry heading for the treatment centre rubbish was spilling from the lorry into the road and grass verges.  I could not take the lorries registration due driving. I can only see this happening even more with increased lorry deliveries.

Horsham is doing its bit with regard to waste disposal, there will be more HGV pollutants in the air with all the traffic coming and going due to the New housing developments.

The A24 looks like a rubbish dump with the waste on grass verges.  The wildlife in the surrounding areas are affected with all this rubbish effecting their habitats.
And the health of Horsham residents and wildlife is at stake.  

How do you expect us to trust you and Britainiacrest when they can't keep a simple act of transporting rubbish without it falling into the surrounding environment and trust them with a serious waste disposal chimney .

The U.K. Is one of five countries contravening European air pollution.  If the U.K. does not show Brussels how it intends to comply with EU law a court hearing with the power to impose heavy fines could begin later this year , a penalty payment and a five figure fine daily if the country does not comply.  West Sussex is one of the areas failing to address repeated breaches of legal pollution limits.

I ask you on behalf of my family, local wildlife and the environment do not go ahead with this environmental disaster, it will be your legacy to Horsham.

480  Judith Edward 12, Lemmington Way, RH12 5JG Object 22-APR-2018 Dear Sir,

I am writing to OBJECT to the proposed planning application by Britaniacrest (ref: WSCC/015/18/NH).  I object for the following reasons:

1) Air quality, dust and fumes.

From your own environmental health report, the planning application does not meet the air quality critera, with excesses in heavy metals. Air quality is a serious, under-reported issue. It has a long term effect on health.  For this alone the application should be rejected.

2) Visual impact

The height of the tower is too great. The exisiting chimney is 28m tall, this will now go to 95m. This will detrimentally impact the visual environment.

3) Over supply of incineration facilities.  There is no need for the facility for the waste that is generated in W.Sussex, there is the risk that WSCC get tied to a facility that has not economic value, and to feed it waste is travelling many road miles, again another air quality issue. MPs are considering the evidence that there are too many incineration plants.  In this situation to reject the application and keep thes status quo, is the best economic case.


Yours sincerely

481 Mr Deryck & Mrs June Thomson Petworth  Drive, Horsham Object 22-APR-2018 From Deryck & June Thomson  Petworth  Drive  Horsham
We wish to raise the following objections to Britaniacrest building a huge
waste Incinerator on the Former Wealden Brickworks (Site HB),
Langhurstwood Road, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 4QD
This proposed development is not in keeping with overall approved changes
for Horsham area. This is a very detrimental development that will spoil areas of outstanding natural beauty, the chimney will be seen for miles around and also
the whole development will cause numerous other problems, see below.
This area north of the Horsham bypass is already scheduled for housing development,
a new school and industrial units. Any waste recycling scheme is too close to these
new developments. Surly that cannot be healthy for the teachers, pupils, parents, the people who move into the new houses or are employed or visit the new industrial units!
It is also too close to the rest of Horsham a very short distance away from the old brick works as the crow flies.  
Pollution for the incinerator will be spread all across Horsham residents depending on the wind direction. We have had the land fill smell/traffic for many many years, let some other area have the waste smell, pollution etc. The land fill traffic is 7 days a week, saw lorries going up there today, Sunday 22/04. The existing land fill is further away for housing than the proposed development and North Horsham residents can very often smell the land fill site.
We do not want Horsham `residents¿ health damaged by pollution from this incinerator and the increase in air pollution that is sure to result, should the plans go ahead, from the many lorries visiting the site to deposit waste. Diesel fumes from lorries and cars are now considered very dangerous to health, we thought the Government had plans to cut this pollution not increase it!  
What about site security, how can Horsham Residents be guaranteed that no harmful substances or liquids will not be disposed of in the incinerator. Can Britannia guaranteed the site to be secure 24 x 7 and that nothing `illegal¿ will be disposed of, either through the books or as a favour when staff will be under great pressure to accept bribes to dispose of substances at the risk of residents becoming ill or even dying from fumes and emissions from the chimney. You only have to look at Salisbury to know how easy it is to pollute an area with such devastating consequences to all around!  
The chimney is also in our opinion a potential danger to aircraft, too close to Gatwick airport flight paths! Will any of the burnt waste get into aircraft engines!!! Can this be guaranteed not to happen! The risk must be too great!!
Roads around Horsham are already very busy at all times of the day/night, without                   a significant increase in traffic from the Waste lorries transporting stuff in for                         burning. Further traffic problems will be experienced when all the proposed housing in the North Horsham area is completed, our roads cannot cope with current levels of traffic and definitely not cope with any further traffic increases!
Locate the incinerator in a less densely populated area if it does have to be built in Southern England!
We also still believe that some of this proposal does not meet current `planning¿
regulations from this country and recommendations from European Commission.
IT MUST NOT GO AHEAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

484  Emily Sacchi - Object 22-APR-2018 Re: Objection to WSCC/015/18/NH

I would like to record my strong objection to the proposed plan for an incinerator for the following reasons:

1. Environmental. The plant will cause excessive air pollution. Levels have already been on the increase due to the close Gatwick airport and regular traffic increase along the Horsham bypass and A24.

2. Health. The pollution will certainly be detrimental to resident¿s health and quality of life in the area, with a negative effects on asthma, allergies, etc.

3.Traffic. An increased number of hg vehicles will travel to and from the site, with effect on noise levels, damage to country lanes and lead to potential accidents with other vehicles.

4. Noise. Noise from new hgv traffic as well as the waste processing itself will have an impact on the quality of life and the population enjoying the countryside in the area.

5. Scale and location. The size of the plant is not in keeping with other smaller rural operations and facilities in the area. It has the scale of an industrial plant so it should therefore belong to a more industrial area of the region.

I would be grateful to receive assurances that our concerns are being taken into account. Please kept us up to date on the status of this application.

487 Mr & Mrs Salter North, Horsham Object 23-APR-2018 I write to confirm our objection to the Incinerator proposed for North Horsham

Reference WSCC/015/18/NH

As a resident of North Horsham area i wish to state that we moved to this location from further afield to enjoy the good things that Horsham had to offer and enjoy some of the Greenbelt and delightful countryside around us. That is slowly being destroyed with ridiculous levels of new housing and now a potential proposal for this increased size chimney and incinerator.

We do not wish to live near such a blot on the landscape but also the potential exposures it poses of increased Co2 levels and increased transportation to feed this incinerator nor do I wish to pose any risks to my two small children in what I had hoped would be a long term plan to reside here.

The idea of the chimney size increasing to 36m tall will not only be ugly but Im sure take a huge negative impact on house pricing and desirability for the area, as why would anyone chose to live near this..

The WHO advise that areas near an incinerator should not be populated - therefore how is this proposal even being considered as it will clearly create plumes that will head over to nearby conurbations.

Please note our objections

488 Mrs Jane Nash 18, 18, Sandeman Way, Horsham, RH136EL Object 23-APR-2018 Please note my objection to the planning application WSCC/015/18/NH for an incinerator in North Horsham.
Horsham sits in a valley, the polluted air will sink into this valley with disastrous consequences for the people living here.  My grandchildren live in north Horsham, and it may be best to leave the area, having lived here for 55 years it would be a shame.  Horsham is a lovely town, do you really want it blighted after having done so much to make it such a sought after place to live.



Also, I really hope this is not financially motivated on the part of the council.  We are all trying so hard to reduce waste, and will continue to do so, this is not the way to motivate the community.  There is nothing at all to commend this proposal, it must be decisively rejected and not ever considered again.  Please ask Britanniacrest to give up.
Y
489 Mrs Sarah Scott -, 9, Lakeside, Horsham, RH12 2LS Object 23-APR-2018 The proposals for an incinerator does not meet WSCC waste plan:

Strategic Objective 5: to make provision for a new transfer, recycling and treatment facilities as close as possible to where waste arises. The scale and throughput of the proposed plant is incompatible with the disposal of local waste and will attract material from outside of the county.

Strategic Objective 10: To protect and, where possible, enhance the natural and historic environment and resources of the County. There is no element of the proposals that will enhance the natural environment.

Policy W11: Character. Proposals for waste development will be permitted provided that they would not have an unacceptable impact on: (a) the character, distinctiveness, and sense of place of the different areas of the County??

The proposal will have a dramatic effect on the character of Horsham and so we believe it does not meet the criteria.

Policy W12: High Quality Developments.  Proposals for waste development will be permitted provided that they are of high quality and, where appropriate, the scale, form, and design (including landscaping). This incinerator clearly does not meet this requirement.

Visual Impact

The chimney of the brickworks is 26.5m high.  The proposed incinerator building will be taller than this chimney some 35.92m in height, bugger than the shopping centre and impose across an AONB.


Light Pollution

For the CAA to demand middle and top of the stack is lit at night is due to flight paths.  The CAA would not be demanding such comprehensive lighting if the routes did not go over the proposed site.  The site would become a permanent hazard for all aircraft and significantly increase light pollution in the area.


Recycle

WSCC have shown a 2% increase in recycling and so to burn would captivate the council into long term contracts to keep a hungry incinerator burning.  It is inevitable that recycling will drop, as is the case in London.

The Biffa bio-mechanical digester that taxpayers paid for to deal with household waste will virtually become redundant as the proposer has stated that they intend to burn black sack waste as well as industrial.

Burning waste is short sighted and damaging to the long-term prosperity to the planet on demands for resources.

Noise Pollution

As the site will be 24/7 it will create noise above the ambient noise enjoyed by rural areas of 30-35dB.  This ambient noise levels decrease at night

Flue Stack

At the Britaniacrest exhibition the organisers detailed that the stack will be similar to a plant in Cornwall.  This plant has two larger chimneys and so what is proposed seems to be questionable to its final proportions and subsequently visual impact as it is suggested that the chimney will be far bigger than illustrated by the proposer.

Not Needed

It would seem that West Sussex already has given planning permission for an incinerator at Ford in 2014.  With an incinerator already permitted to be built on the coast it is highly questionable why an incinerator is needed on the edge of the county.

Air Quality

The air quality is declining in the area due to the congestion surrounding our parish.  Lack of investment in highways means that we are subjected to cut through traffic on our country lanes every day bring car pollution to our rural doorsteps. This proposal would bring lorries on the dangerous A24, congested A264, A29, M23, and so the list goes on, as waste will be imported into Horsham to burn.


Operations

Britaniacrest have made it clear that they do not intend to run the site and so we are very concerned about the on going operation of an incinerator as previously experienced with the landfill site before Biffa took over.

490 Mrs Joanna Stone 18, Cambridge Road, Horsham, RH13 5ED Object 23-APR-2018 I would like to object to the planning application WSCC/015/18/NH for in incinerator on the site of the Wealden Brickworks in Horsham.
I'm objecting (aagain, this time to the second application) on the grounds that:
a) the proposal is still going to be emitting pollutants over Horsham and the surrounding area, including Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, new housing developments and existing settlements and drinking water reservoirs.
b) there will still be an increase in traffic transporting waste to be incinerated, which will have a detrimental affect on the area.
c) The proposed chimney and building is very tall and large and will be noticeable for many miles.
d) there are recognised concerns about this method of rubbish disposal for its environmental impact, and it goes against the reduce, recycle and reuse approach encouraged by many environmental groups.
Therefore I object to this proposal in the strongest terms. It is not an appropriate site, or indeed, waste disposal solution.

491 Mr Peter Turley 17, 17, Heron Close, Langley Green, Crawley, RH11 7QX Object 23-APR-2018 This planning application has only come to my attention thanks to a letter from the Sussex section of CPRE in the April 18 "Crawley Observer." There is no point plagiarising the eloquent, informed narrative of this letter, there is nothing I can add. Suffice to say that everyone I have spoken to is appalled at the prospect that as Crawley residents we are where all this dangerous poison will make groundfall. Living as I do, less than 80 yards downwind from Crawley by-pass we are already exposed to all the traffic pollution, as residents we do not need this adding to with this incinerator. I object in the strongest possible terms. Y
492 Mrs Helena Wicks 77, Ropeland Way, Horsham, RH12 5NZ Object 23-APR-2018 I confirm that I object to the proposed development on the grounds of non-compliance with a number of existing policies and concerns regarding the adverse impact related to the proposed development.  I believe that the proposed development does not comply with policies related to the West Sussex Waste Local Plan 2014:

Policy W16 as it will not have an unacceptable impact on Air Quality. There will be an increase in emissions compared with the current baseline and there is significant potential for the proposed development to impact on the adjacent North Horsham Approved Development comprising residential properties and school which will place children and families in extremely close proximity for prolonged and continual periods of time.

Policy W18 as it will not minimise lorry movements and the use of local roads
for the movement of waste. When asked at the Public Exhibition about the assertion that the proposed development would result in a reduction in transport emissions it was acknowledged that there may be a region wide reduction but in the local area there may actually be an increase.  WSCC Highways have requested more details on transport movements and for local residents any increase over the existing can be seen as adverse and detrimental to their health.  Notwithstanding the fact that the proposed access road for which vehicles would access the site is due to be re-routed through the North Horsham Approved Development and therefore through the mixed use development.
 
Policy W19 as it will harm the health and amenity of existing and proposed
local residents, businesses and visitors-see above for comments.

Moving onto the design there may have been a re-design however the height of the stack remains at 95m due to the need for plume dispersion. This in itself shows that air quality requirements can not be maintained without a large stack.  Having viewed the photomontages and spoken to the Landscape Architect from RPS it was acknowledged that it would be visible and ugly (not my words but their own consultant's). Arguably this is an understatement as the proposed building and specifically the stack will be considerably higher than any of the existing buildings.  The ES does not appear to include a large amount of information on plume visibility which previously was likely to be up to 400m and now appears to be dismissed as not being significant.

With regard to the wider requirement for incinerators as a whole I am concerned that research increasingly appears to indicate that incineration reduces recycling. Incineration plants in Europe are already being decommissioned because reduced availability of suitable waste has significantly reduced the amount of material available to fuel the burners. Many countries are now having to import material to incinerate.

In the news we are seeing increased pressure from Central Government for the reduction in the use and reliance on plastics and aiming to recycle more.  With this change then large facilities such as this will be redundant.  More information on wider policies for waste facility requirements (more recent than the West Sussex Waste Local Plan 2014) should be considered before determining that this proposed development, which will take time to be built, will not be surplus to requirements before it has been commissioned.

I am contacting your office objecting to the proposed planning of an Incinerator
to be erected at the Biffa Mechanical Biological Treatment facility North Horsham the chimney is to be on a building 36m tall plus the chimney an extra 95m.

The existing site has already defaced the country side with a massive mound, the fumes from this site in the summer is a total disgrace without all the large flies which come into the house and gardens, Gateford Drive is a very short distance from this site.

Then there is all the litter and rubbish left along the road side of the A24 & A264. The whole town and surrounding area is a total mess with rubbish left all over the district. Tesco's being one of the worst offenders along with the Biffa trucks dropping waste.

It has become apparent that there is no environmental inspection on this site to monitor its operation, spraying scented chemicals on the waste does not work.

The council need to clean its act up with these companies and start to take into account the opinions of the residents.

Planning ref: WSCC/015/18/NH at Wealden Brickworks, Langhurstwood Road, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 4QD
I wish to strongly object against this planning application for an incinerator.

Visual Impact
The chimney of the brickworks is 26.5m high.  The proposed incinerator building will be taller than this chimney some 35.92m in height which is taller than the  existing chimney which is already visible above the treeline. Therefore, just the new proposed building itself will tower over the treeline.
The building will be bigger than Horsham¿s shopping centre.
The new proposed chimney will be 95m tall - it will be seen from far and wide, including areas of outstanding natural beauty.  By the proposers own submission it will be seen as far as Box Hill.

Air Quality
The air quality is declining in the area due to the congestion surrounding our parish.  Lack of investment in highways means that we are subjected to cut through traffic on our country lanes everyday bringing car pollution to our rural doorsteps.  WSCC in their recent Connect magazine detailed that vehicles, 80% of nitrogen dioxide concentration at the roadside is caused by road transport.

This proposal would bring 140 lorries a day on the dangerous A24, congested A264, A29, M23, and as waste will be imported into Horsham to burn.

Light Pollution
For the CAA to demand middle and top of the stack is lit at night is due to flight paths.  The CAA would not be demanding such comprehensive lighting if the routes did not go over the proposed site.  
The stack will be lit like a Christmas tree producing significant increase in light pollution from the plant and the skyline.

Noise Pollution
As the site will be operating 24/7 it will create noise above the ambient noise enjoyed by rural areas of 30-35dB.  This ambient noise levels decrease at night.

There is no offer of compensation for noise and light pollution to the surrounding communities.

There is no compensation being offered to those whose home will be devalued by the building of an industrial incinerator of this magnitude adjacent to their homes.
Recycling
WSCC have shown a 2% increase in recycling and so to burn would captivate the council into long term contracts to keep a hungry incinerator burning.  It is inevitable that recycling will drop, as is the case in London.
The Biffa bio-mechanical digester that taxpayers paid for to deal with household waste will virtually become redundant as the proposer has stated that they intend to burn black sack waste as well as industrial.
Burning waste is short sighted and damaging to the long-term prosperity to the planet on demands for resources.

Not Needed
It would seem that West Sussex already has given planning permission for an incinerator at Ford in 2014.  With an incinerator already permitted to be built on the coast it is highly questionable why an incinerator is needed on the edge of the county.
NB Gatwick already has an incinerator, which burns waste from Manor Royal Business Park.

UK Win are behind the political cross party Early Day Motion (581)* to place a moratorium on new incinerators because there is not enough waste to feed the incinerators currently in use and being built in the UK, but this legislation will come way too late for West Sussex.
Research increasingly shows that incineration decreases the rate of recycling and with the amount of plastic in production set to decrease dramatically in the next few years, what will this Horsham incinerator burn

I am writing to object to repeat plans for a Briattaniacrest incinerator at the  old Wealden Brickworks on Langhurstwood Road.  I find it very difficult to understand why we are back to a point where we are again having to object to this.  Apart from the very obvious eyesore that such a structure would represent there are countless reasons why this is not something that would benefit any of the community in Horsham.

The roads surrounding the area are already badly in need of repair without the added traffic this plant would create. The pollution associated with the increased vehicles as well as the  CO2,  dioxins, NOx and ultrafine particles that would be produced by the site itself represent a very real human health (and environmental) danger  and are a real worry particularly to those of us with vulnerable young children. Surely,  Horsham Council won't would agree to such a harmful planning application when there are no less than twelve schools in under a five mile radius of this site ? The World Health Organisation advises that areas near a waste incinerator should not be populated; what would they make on the positioning of this tower in relation to the 50,000 odd people that live in this area let alone the schools?

Horsham is already doing enough in with BIFFA Mechanical Treatment facility. We are also surrounded with new residential developments on all sides. I feel it would be truly hypocritical of Horsham Council to sanction all these new residential developments on the one hand and then promptly allow a development so obviously harmful to human health on the other. Please don't allow this to happen.

I am writing to object to the possible incinerator proposed for Horsham. I believe this is a harmful and inappropriate option that would damage the local environment and have a negative impact on health, and is an outdated mode of waste disposal. I am also concerned about the increase in traffic volume that would accompany such a facility when the local roads are already a challenge at many times of the day and this will only get worse when the new development north of the A264 begins.

It is totally inappropriate for a highly populated area and the emissions will result in high CO2 and NOX  gasses being dispersed.  The increased HGV traffic supplying the plant would also be a huge problem.

This ghastly proposal should be thrown out!

Y
507  LJ Daniels 49, Broadwood Close, Horsham Object 23-APR-2018 I object to the above planning application on the following grounds:


1)    It is environmentally bad, since it would encourage more plastic waste, create more CO2 and NOX emissions.

2)    It is an unacceptable advance in the degradation of rural countryside.

3)    HGV traffic movements would be hugely increased on local roads, which are already seriously congested.

4)    The health of residents far and wide would be seriously affected by even more emissions into the atmosphere.

5)    I am an asthma sufferer and I already have huge problems with aircraft emissions due to the increase of air traffic at Gatwick.  An incinerator, however                'clean',  would be extremely bad for my health and no doubt for that of many other people.

508 Mr Graham Atkins 5, Fivens Place, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 5AS Object 23-APR-2018 Attention:  County Planning, West Sussex County Council, County Hall, Chichester PO19 1RH

I am writing to object to the planning application WSCC/015/18/NH the location of which will be adjacent to the Daux roundabout off the A24 / A264.

The proposed site is too close to heavily populated areas and soon to be the location of new housing estates, local schools, the Warnham deer park, and the Warnham Local Nature Reserve.

I have particular concern on the pollution caused by emissions into the air that will enter the soil, surface water and groundwater and eventually the food chain that will pose a major risk to human health. We are talking about dust, nitrogen oxides, sulphur dioxide, hydrogen chloride, hydrogen fluoride, heavy metals and dioxins and furan. Furan is a colourless, flammable, highly volatile liquid that is toxic and may be carcinogenic in humans.
Britaniacrest propose to squeeze a massive incinerator (180,000Te per annum) capacity onto the site named above to take the industrial waste materials from many of the southern counties of England. The chimney will be 96 metres high.
The size of the construction is very large, the chimney very high and they will have a major impact on Horsham and surrounding villages as well as potentially areas of outstanding natural beauty in Surrey.
The proposed incinerator is non-compliant with West Sussex County Council¿s Waste Local Plan in the following respects:
Strategic Objective 5: to make provision for a new transfer, recycling and treatment facilities as close as possible to where waste arises.
Observation: The facility is so large it must be designed to accept waste from all over the South East of England.
Strategic Objective 10: To protect and, where possible, enhance the natural and historic environment and resources of the County.
Observation: There is no element of the proposal that will protect or enhance the natural environment.
Strategic Objective 11: To protect and, where possible, enhance the natural and historic environment and resources of the County.
Observation: Far from enhancing the environment, it will detract and blight it. The chimney will be visible from 15kms away in areas of Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Policy W11: Character. Proposals for waste development will be permitted provided that they would not have an unacceptable impact on: the character, distinctiveness, and sense of place of the different areas of the County.
Observation: It will have a major detrimental impact on local rural villages, Horsham and surrounding communities.
Policy W12: High Quality Developments. Proposals for waste development will be permitted provided that they are of high quality and, where appropriate, the scale, form, and design (including landscaping) take into account the need to: (a) integrate with and, where possible, enhance adjoining land-uses¿¿ (b) have regard to the local context including: the topography, landscape, townscape, streetscape and skyline of the surrounding area site.
Observation: The Britaniacrest proposal does not meet any of the criteria set out above in W12.
Policy W19: Public Health and Amenity. Proposals for waste development will be permitted provided that: lighting, noise, dust, odours and other emissions ¿ are controlled to the extent that there will not be an unacceptable impact on public health and amenity.
Observation: Such a large facility must necessarily produce such emissions that it must make an unacceptable impact upon public health and amenity.
Observation: Light pollution will be significant. The CAA have demanded middle and top of the stack is lit at night. The stack will increase in light pollution from the plant and the skyline

509 Mr John Cooban 109, Hazelwick Road, Three Bridges, Crawley, West Sussex, RH10 1NQ Object 23-APR-2018 I object to this application on the grounds that pollution and fallout from an incinerator of a scale so huge - and most significantly a chimney so high - that it would impact on views from heavily populated areas and protected landscapes for miles around, will be bad for the long term health and wellbeing of people ¿ particularly in Crawley, downwind from the site.

510 Mrs Angela Meredith 13, Earles Meadow, Horsham, RH12 4HP Object 23-APR-2018 I am writing to object to the planning application from Britaniacrest:
1. Non-compliance with West Sussex County Council?s Waste Local Plan
The size of the construction is excessively large and high and will have a major impact on Horsham and surrounding villages as well as AONB.
Strategic Objective 5: to make provision for a new transfer, recycling and treatment facilities as close as possible to where waste arises.
To feed a plant of this scale waste will have to come from outside the local area and thus will encourage commercial waste being transferred over long distances to feed this incinerator.
Strategic Objective 10: to protect and, where possible, enhance the natural and historic environment and resources of the County.
There is no element of the proposals that will protect or enhance the natural environment.
Strategic Objective 11: To protect and, where possible, enhance the natural and historic environment and resources of the County.
A large and unsightly incinerator will not enhance the local area but blight this area and be visible from kms away in areas of AONB. There are also unanswered questions about the pollution resulting from emissions, increase in road traffic and impact it will have on business travel due to congestion and detrimental impact on Horsham as a whole.
Policy W11: Character. Proposals for waste development will be permitted provided that they would not have an unacceptable impact on: (a) the character, distinctiveness, and sense of place of the different areas of the County.
It is questionable if this policy will be met by this proposal, as it will be seen from rural villages and have a detrimental impact on Horsham and surrounding rural communities.
Policy W12: High Quality Developments. Proposals for waste development will be permitted provided that they are of high quality etc.
This proposal does not meet these criteria.
Policy W19: Public Health and Amenity. Proposals for waste development will be permitted provided that: lighting, noise, dust, odours and other emissions are controlled etc.
The proposals will require aviation lighting as well as have a night-time noise impact on the neighbouring communities creating light pollution for the area.
2. Visual Impact of the development
The proposal does nothing to hide the intrusive visible impact it will have on the rural countryside. The stack will be particularly overpowering at times when exhaust plumes are being emitted. The application documents state that the plume height could range from 6m to over 400m from the top of the 95m chimney. This is still the same even though the building height is now lower.
3. Noise intrusion
At the operational stage it is acknowledge in the application that at night, with low background noise levels, the noise exposure would be increased by 6dB at three locations. This would seem a significant increase in noise that residents would have to tolerate.
4. The Environmental Arguments
With the current push for greater recycling and for reducing the use of plastics especially for packaging the availability of suitable waste to feed the incinerator will be impacted. This will mean waste having to be imported from further afield than West Sussex. This will mean greater emissions in terms of road vehicle movements as well as the emissions from the incinerator.
In fact there was the Parliament Early Day motion 581 in November 2017 stated ?That this House notes in the UK there is now more waste incineration capacity built and under construction than it is forecast there will be genuinely residual combustible waste to burn; further notes that incineration overcapacity can be a barrier to achieving the recycling society?.
For this reason and the others outlined above I object to the Britaniacrest incinerator application.

512 Mr Clive Phillips 44, Cissbury Close, Horsham, RH12 5JT Object 23-APR-2018 WSCC Waste Local Plan. Size excessively large and high. Major impact on Horsham and villages and potentially on Surrey AONBs.
Strategic Objective 5: Scale of plant signals waste import from outside local area, with long-distance transfer of commercial waste to feed outsize incinerator.
SO 10: Nothing in proposal protects or enhances natural environment.
Re SO 11: Nothing in proposal enhances local area. Detracts and blights it, visible from 15km in AONBs. Pollution from emissions including lead, mercury and dioxins, road traffic increase and detrimental impact on Horsham.
Policy W11: Character. Not met, as stack will be seen from villages and have a detrimental impact on Horsham and surroundings.
Policy W12: High Quality Developments. Does not meet criteria.
Policy W19: Public Health and Amenity. Will require aviation lighting and exert night-time noise and light pollution impact on local communities.
Light Pollution. CAA requires stack to be lit at night. The CAA would not demand such comprehensive lighting if flight paths did not go over the proposed site. Mapping of routes in the proposal does not include the departure route over North Horsham. Flight paths are not lines on the ground but in fact have an impact some 3-5nm either side of the line. Mapping does not show arrival paths. Stack will be lit like a Christmas tree producing significant increase in light pollution on the skyline.
Recycling. WSCC have shown a 2% increase in recycling. Burning waste will tie Council into long term contracts to keep incinerator burning. Recycling will consequently drop, as in London. Government is already considering compelling evidence that there is overcapacity of waste incineration in UK. EU countries have to import waste to feed incinerators. There is correlation between increased incineration and decreased recycling.
Proposer intends to burn residential waste and industrial waste. WSCC taxpayers paid for Biffa biomechanical digester, and Britaniacrest representatives say the digester would become redundant if the incinerator is built. Unacceptable waste of taxpayers' money. Burning waste is short sighted and damaging to long-term prosperity and well-being of the environment.
Noise Pollution. As site will operate 24/7 it will create noise above the ambient noise experienced by rural areas of 30-35dB.
Ambient noise levels decrease at night and Britaniacrest have admitted they are struggling to reduce the noise to a level compatible with a rural location.
Visual Impact of the development. Proposal does nothing to hide impact on countryside, being totally overpowering and intrusive day and night as it protrudes and projects above the tree canopy.
Intrusion of the stack will be particularly intimidating at times when exhaust plumes are emitted. Plume height could range from 6m to over 400m from the top of the 96m stack.
Noise intrusion. Proposal acknowledges that at night, with low background noise levels, the noise exposure would be increased by 6dB at three locations. Significant increase in noise confronting local residents.
Environmental Arguments. Research indicates incineration reduces recycling.
Incineration plants in EU countries are already being decommissioned because reduced availability of suitable waste has significantly reduced the amount of material available to fuel the burners. Many are now having to import material to incinerate.
As we reduce our reliance on plastics and recycle more, experts predict that within 5 years we will have solved the plastics issue. Industry is changing and will no longer rely on plastic packaging. Government ministers are starting to push for a moratorium on incineration facilities because we already have surplus capacity for burning waste in the UK. If the proposal is granted planning consent, West Sussex be left with a harmful white elephant.

513 Mr David Searle 7, Earles Meadow, Horsham, RH12 4HP Object 23-APR-2018 The size of the construction is excessive large and high and will have a major impact on the Market Town of Horsham and surrounding villages as well as potentially Surrey areas of outstanding natural beauty.  If this proposal goes ahead Horsham will become an Industrial Town.

Strategic Objective 5: States that provision should be made for a new transfer, recycling and treatment facilities as close as possible to where waste arises.  Britaniacrest have said waste will come form anywhere.  This may be from abroad. This proposal does not meet the criteria.

Waste will come from outside the local area and thus will encourage commercial waste being transferred over great distance to feed a very large incinerator.  This will bring addition litter to our roads and verges.  Roads and verges are already littered from the actives in Langhurstwood Road and such a facility will only make the problem worst.

Strategic Objective 10: To protect and, where possible, enhance the natural and historic environment and resources of the County. There is no element of the proposals that will protect or enhance the natural environment.

Strategic Objective 11: To protect and, where possible, enhance the natural and historic environment and resources of the County.  There is nothing to suggest that this will enhance the local area in fact it will detract and blight being visible from 15kms away in areas of Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We should question the pollution from the emissions including lead, mercury, dioxins, the increase in road traffic and the impact it will have on business travel in delays and detrimental impact on Horsham as a whole.

Policy W11: Character. Proposals for waste development will be permitted provided that they would not have an unacceptable impact on: (a) the character, distinctiveness, and sense of place of the different areas of the County¿¿

It is questionable if this policy will be met by this proposal, as it will be seen from rural villages and detrimental impact on Horsham and surrounding rural communities.

515 Mrs K Fisher - Object 23-APR-2018 Hello
REF: WSCC/015/15/NH
I would like to register my objections to the proposed planning application of the incinerator in Horsham with the above reference.

I believe the we do not have the proper road infrastructure to cope with the extra lorries. I travel on that part of the bypass twice a day and it is already very dangerous and difficult with flow of traffic trying to join anymore would be an accident waiting to happen.
I also think the size of the chimney will be unsightly and does not fit in with the area.
I think more time need to be taken to look into  if another incinerator is need if UK MP¿s are already looking into the fact we may already have too many!
I also believe this will have an effect on air pollution with the incinerator itself and the additional traffic.
Please do not allow this to happen!

Kind regards

516 Mrs Anna Lancaster ., Wagtail Close Object 23-APR-2018 I am writing again to object to the Horsham Incinerator.

We moved from London to a quiet town with plenty of green areas for walks and peace and quiet, and fresh air.

We live near the proposed site and do not want the Incinerator for a number of reasons.

Our daughter has daily medication for asthma, and I do not want to air quality to be poorer, due to the incinerator. (We live on Wagtail Close) Also due to increased heavy duty lorries bringing in waste to be burnt, from across the County.
I do not want the light quality to be affected due to 24hr lighting - affecting our lives but also near by Warnham Nature reserve, where we frequently watch the birds.

I would also like to see the County reduce packaging and recycle more, but not burning more waste. Also consider food waste management, like they do in London.

Therefore I am opposing the incinerator and hope you will reconsider its application and location.

517 Mr Philip Dee 6, Freeman Road, Warnham, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 3RQ Object 23-APR-2018 Hi there,

I am writing to protest against the revised proposals for an Incinerator at Langhustwoord Road, Horsham.

The reason for there being so much objection to the first proposal is that this is absolutely the wrong site for an Incinerator. Tweeking the detail of the plans and re-submitting them does not change this fact. Horsham is STILL NOT the right place for an incinerator.

The amount of traffic on Langhurstwood Road is already unbearable. This is a quiet county lane and should not have heavy industrial LGV¿s travelling up and down it. The litter from the trucks is also a massive problem at the moment as this spreads all over the A264. It¿s always a bit of a joke to me when I see the council putting up signs in the area about not littering when the fact is it¿s the lorry¿s servicing the rubbish tip that are causing the problem.

This wasn¿t the right sight for a landfill and it¿s even less of an appropriate sight for an incinerator which is going to be an ugly blot on the lovely landscape. I really think that Warnham has suffered enough, what with the increased in air traffic flying over the area, the demand for new houses. The Warnham area with its quiet country side lines and rural appeal really shouldn¿t be the dumping ground for everyone else. Enough is enough! There are plenty of brownfield sites with good road connections that are not in tranquil areas, so one of these sites should be chosen for any incinerator.

Can we we please, please, please put a stop to this rather than just inviting further revised proposals. This is the wrong site and always will be.
Thankyou, Philip Dee.

522  Fiona Hamilton Broome Close, North Horsham Object 24-APR-2018 Dear Sir/Madam
I am writing in objection to the proposed development and erection of the Horsham Incinerator.

Horsham is steeped in family history for me, my Great Grandfather was Earle Turnbull, dairy farmer to the town and who Earle's Meadow was named after. My other Great Grandparents lived in both Moated farm and Rapelands farm with much of our family's memorabilia being held and displayed at Horsham Museum.


Despite moving out of Horsham when I was a student, I chose to come back and start a family of my own in this town, just far enough away from London to breathe fresh country air but also forward thinking in continuing to develop and provide all the amenities a modern family require.


It has taken my husband and I nine years to finally get on the housing ladder and buy our first home in Broome Close, North Horsham. I am extremely concerned about the proposal of the incinerator and cannot believe that this is even being considered so close to town.


The wind already carries the smell of gases from the landfill on Langhurstwood Road to North Horsham, I don't see how the council proposes to steer the pollution caused by this incinerator away from the town. Surely the council is aware of how dangerous incinerators can be when in close proximity to developed areas as referenced by the World Health Organisation, BBC news, British Society for Ecological Medicine as well as several other UK councils.


Even if the proposed incinerator has an air pollution control device, there is still a real risk of nanoparticles and toxic fly ash reaching our homes and effecting the health of our children. I truly am baffled by the application of this archaic monstrosity and believe that money can be saved if we are more savvy with our recycling and stop taking money for taking other towns' waste. The UK are so behind in our efforts towards sustainability, it's embarrassing. Please help focus local councils on improving individual carbon footprints instead of leaving a giant one where a beautiful town called Horsham used to be.
Yours sincerely

523 Mr R L Lawes Rusty Grackle, Langhurst Wood Road, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 4QD Object 24-APR-2018 Dear Sirs

I wish to place my objection to the planning application ¿ WSCC/015/18/NH for an Incinerator Plant at the former Wealden Brickworks on Langhurstwood Road in North Horsham.

My reasons for rejection of this application are:-

1. The site today is immediately adjacent to the high density residential area of North Horsham and will be surrounded by new residential housing estates as the area north of the A264 is developed over the next 5 years. Placing an industrial complex with some polluting exhaust is putting the health of a large population at risk.
2. The road system surrounding the site is extremely busy at all times and suffers significant congestion at peak times every day. Adding more HGV traffic will further aggravate an already difficult traffic congestion situation.
3. The site is at the lower side of rising high ground which places many houses and the villages of Rusper and Kingsfold directly in line with the output of the chimney as the prevailing winds blow directly ¿up the hill¿ from the site.
Yours Sincerely

Y
524 Ms Catherine Pinder ., Old Holbrook Object 24-APR-2018 Dear Sir/Madam

I¿m writing to object to the application to build the Britaniacrest Incinerator in North Horsham.

I live on Old Holbrook, in close proximity to the site of the proposal. This is an area that already has a significant number of residents, and many more planned with the North of Horsham development, therefore I believe it to be an unsuitable location for the incinerator. This is based on the World Health Organisation advice that areas near a waste incinerator should not be populated. The CO2 emissions that the incinerator will give off are damaging to our health therefore locating it in a residential area, which has 12 schools in a 5 mile radius, is irresponsible.

In addition the incinerator will be bad for the environment. As already mentioned the CO2 emissions from the incinerator itself will damage the environment, as will the increased CO2 and Nox emissions coming from the huge increase in HGV traffic transporting waste to the site. Additionally, the towering chimney will be a blot on the landscape, not just because of its height but also by the fact it will have to be permanently lit to ensure it isn¿t hit by aircraft.

Yours sincerely,

525  Irene Leverett - Object 24-APR-2018 I do not see that this incinerator is suitable for the area for the following reasons:

North Horsham suffered for 2 years with smells coming night and morning friends at Rusper say they still get them from the incinerator that is already installed.  The impact on the wildlife, Warnham Sanctuary trees and hedgerows will be devastating.  Traffic will get worse and the fact that houses and schools are to be built near it is wrong.  I consider we have already done our bit by having 1 incinerator and the hill full of animal carcases.  This area will be totally destroyed.

I wish to object to the above planning application by Britaniacrest in the strongest terms, for the following reasons.
I understand an incinerator built at this location does not comply with WSCC own planning objectives on many grounds., all existing rules must be met.
The incinerator will rely on waste being trucked in from out of the county from all over the country.
The state of the art MBT unit has already been paid for out of our tax's, recycles and doesn't create pollution.
An industrial factory of this enormity is out of keeping with the surrounding rural area.
The  near by villages of Rusper and Kingsfold are at a higher sea level and in the line of the prevailing winds, of the proposed incinerator site , creating an unacceptable risk of smoke and pollution.

Planning ref: WSCC/015/18/NH at Wealden Brickworks, Langhurstwood Road, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 4QD
I wish to strongly object against this planning application for an incinerator.
Visual Impact
The chimney of the brickworks is 26.5m high.  The proposed incinerator building will be taller than this chimney some 35.92m in height which is taller than the  existing chimney which is already visible above the treeline. Therefore, just the new proposed building itself will tower over the treeline.
The building will be bigger than Horsham¿s shopping centre.
The new proposed chimney will be 95m tall - it will be seen from far and wide, including areas of outstanding natural beauty.  By the proposers own submission it will be seen as far as Box Hill.
Air Quality
The air quality is declining in the area due to the congestion surrounding our parish.  Lack of investment in highways means that we are subjected to cut through traffic on our country lanes everyday bringing car pollution to our rural doorsteps.  WSCC in their recent Connect magazine detailed that vehicles, 80% of nitrogen dioxide concentration at the roadside is caused by road transport.
This proposal would bring 140 lorries a day on the dangerous A24, congested A264, A29, M23, and as waste will be imported into Horsham to burn.
Light Pollution
For the CAA to demand middle and top of the stack is lit at night is due to flight paths.  The CAA would not be demanding such comprehensive lighting if the routes did not go over the proposed site.  
The stack will be lit like a Christmas tree producing significant increase in light pollution from the plant and the skyline.
Noise Pollution
As the site will be operating 24/7 it will create noise above the ambient noise enjoyed by rural areas of 30-35dB.  This ambient noise levels decrease at night.
There is no offer of compensation for noise and light pollution to the surrounding communities.
There is no compensation being offered to those whose home will be devalued by the building of an industrial incinerator of this magnitude adjacent to their homes.
Recycling
WSCC have shown a 2% increase in recycling and so to burn would captivate the council into long term contracts to keep a hungry incinerator burning.  It is inevitable that recycling will drop, as is the case in London.
The Biffa bio-mechanical digester that taxpayers paid for to deal with household waste will virtually become redundant as the proposer has stated that they intend to burn black sack waste as well as industrial.
Burning waste is short sighted and damaging to the long-term prosperity to the planet on demands for resources.
Not Needed
It would seem that West Sussex already has given planning permission for an incinerator at Ford in 2014.  With an incinerator already permitted to be built on the coast it is highly questionable why an incinerator is needed on the edge of the county.
NB Gatwick already has an incinerator, which burns waste from Manor Royal Business Park.

UK Win are behind the political cross party Early Day Motion (581)* to place a moratorium on new incinerators because there is not enough waste to feed the incinerators currently in use and being built in the UK, but this legislation will come way too late for West Sussex.
Research increasingly shows that incineration decreases the rate of recycling and with the amount of plastic in production set to decrease dramatically in the next few years, what will this Horsham incinerator burn?

531  Anna Davison - Object 24-APR-2018 Dear Sir/Madam,

I do understand why the council are considering placing this incinerator close to where they have approved a development of hundreds of homes in North Horsham. Not only will this impact the existing residents, it will greatly impact the new residences. In addition:

¿ The A264/A24 will have the double impact of increased traffic for the incinerator AND the new housing development - greatly impact noise, traffic build ups and pollution
¿ As Horsham does not need this - why place it near our homes - we are working on reducing our waste, not burning it
¿ The Britaniacrest site is already and eyesore when driving / walking in the area - the increase in size will be huge, and further reduce the desirability of Horsham
¿ The plume from this incinerator will impact the houses - and this is against WHO advice - it is too close to residential areas
¿ We should be reducing our waste - not creating more and burning it

Regards,

Anna Davison

532  Nick Paxton 137, Cootes Avenue, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 2AF Object 24-APR-2018 Dear Sir or Madam,
Planning ref: WSCC/015/18/NH at Wealden Brickworks, Langhurstwood Road, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 4QD
I wish to strongly object against this planning application for an incinerator.

Visual Impact
The chimney of the brickworks is 26.5m high.  The proposed incinerator building will be taller than this chimney some 35.92m in height which is taller than the  existing chimney which is already visible above the treeline. Therefore, just the new proposed building itself will tower over the treeline.
The building will be bigger than Horsham¿s shopping centre.
The new proposed chimney will be 95m tall - it will be seen from far and wide, including areas of outstanding natural beauty.  By the proposers own submission it will be seen as far as Box Hill.

Air Quality
The air quality is declining in the area due to the congestion surrounding our parish. Lack of investment in highways means that we are subjected to cut through traffic on our country lanes everyday bringing car pollution to our rural doorsteps.  WSCC in their recent Connect magazine detailed that vehicles, 80% of nitrogen dioxide concentration at the roadside is caused by road transport.

This proposal would bring 140 lorries a day on the dangerous A24, congested A264, A29, M23, and as waste will be imported into Horsham to burn.

Light Pollution
For the CAA to demand middle and top of the stack is lit at night is due to flight paths. The CAA would not be demanding such comprehensive lighting if the routes did not go over the proposed site.  
The stack will be lit like a Christmas tree producing significant increase in light pollution from the plant and the skyline.

Noise Pollution
As the site will be operating 24/7 it will create noise above the ambient noise enjoyed by rural areas of 30-35dB.  This ambient noise levels decrease at night.

There is no offer of compensation for noise and light pollution to the surrounding communities.

There is no compensation being offered to those whose home will be devalued by the building of an industrial incinerator of this magnitude adjacent to their homes.
Recycling
WSCC have shown a 2% increase in recycling and so to burn would captivate the council into long term contracts to keep a hungry incinerator burning.  It is inevitable that recycling will drop, as is the case in London.

533  Jean & Keith Haynes 48, April Close, Horsham Object 24-APR-2018 We wish to register our objections to the proposed incinerator in North Horsham for the following reasons:

1. Incineration damages our health & the environment.

2. The World Health Organisation recommends that incinerators should not be placed near populated  areas and yet the proposed facility would be adjacent to one of the most populated areas of the town ie the North Horsham development.

3.Plans for an incinerator in Horsham were withdrawn last year after a recommendation by planning officers to reject the plans. Surely the objections raised then are still valid for this application by a private company for their own profit.

4.Taxpayers contributed to the BIFFA  Biological treatment facility in North Horsham on the understanding that there would be no incinerator.


We urge that these plans be rejected forthwith.
Y
534 Ms Monica Collins 71, Earles Meadow, Horsham, RH12 4HR Object 24-APR-2018 The size of the construction is excessively large and high and will have a major impact on Horsham and surrounding villages, as well as potentially Surrey areas of outstanding natural beauty.There is nothing to suggest that this will enhance the local area in fact it will detract and blight being visible from 15kms away in areas of Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The pollution from the emissions including lead, mercury, dioxins, would add to that caused by the increase in road traffic and impact on business travel resulting in delays.  It would also have a detrimental impact on Horsham as a whole.
Burning waste may hold the council in long term contracts to keep a hungry incinerator burning. The proposer has stated that they intend to burn black sack waste as well as industrial. WSCC taxpayers paid for the Biffa biomechanical digester, and visitors to the public exhibition have reported being told by Britaniacrest that the digester would become redundant due to the incinerator. This is an unacceptable waste of taxpayers money.
Burning waste is short sighted and damaging to the long-term prosperity and well-being of the environment.
As the site will operate 24/7 it will create noise above the ambient noise enjoyed by rural areas of 30-35dB.
Government ministers are starting to push for a moratorium on incineration facilities because we already have surplus capacity for burning waste in the UK. Will West Sussex be left with a white elephant?

536 Mrs Janet Sidey 14, Blake Close, Crawley, West Sussex, RH105LN Object 24-APR-2018 I am very concerned over the proposed building of an Incinerator by Britaniacrest near Horsham, which would release a cocktail of harmful substances into the atmosphere. These include greenhouse gases, acidic gases and heavy metals.The site would be downwind of Crawley and Horsham,which is one of the County's most populated areas,and important drinking water reservoirs and farmland would be affected.Many of the heavy metals are cumulative,causing Environmental damage.Crawley is already polluted from Gatwick Airport,and the incinerator would only exacerbate the problem. Many of the inhabitants, including my two Grandsons,suffer from Asthma and breathing problems.Please reject this proposal. Y
537 Miss Tracey Hodgkiss Jordans, Partridge Lane, Rusper, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 4RW Object 24-APR-2018 I would like to strongly object to this development due to the increase traffic, noise and pollution this will cause. There are residential houses in this area and schools close by.  I understand the world health organisation advises that areas near waste  incinerators should not be populated so why is this even being considered again?
This development would be of huge detriment to the area.
Y
538 Mr Craig Birch Lower Chickens Farm, Dorking Road, Warnham, Horsham, RH12 3RY Object 24-APR-2018 I strongly object to this planning application and urge WSCC to refuse this application in its entirely.

The facility is excessive in size with the chimney reaching 95m, this can not be hidden in the natural tree canopy and will be seen for miles obscuring views of outstanding natural beauty (Surrey Hills, South Downs National Park and local conservation areas). It is not in keeping with the surrounding enviroment  and will do nothing to enhance the local area. In fact it will be a hugely determental visually.
The omission from the chimney is a huge worry, and will cause unacceptable pollution levels in the local and surrounding areas. This conserns myself and my family a great deal due to the massive negative impacts on health which have been documented, with the safety of these facilities yet to be opined on by central Government, further there is no need for additional incinerators, this is just a for profit making venture for corporate gain.
The road traffic will increase due to the amount of HGV needed to take rubbish which is NOT local, but from areas far and wide, further increasing pollution and putting a strain on a road infrastructure which is already not fit for the current level of traffic . This I strongly object to... bringing rubbish to Horsham to burn, how can this be in the interest of Horsham communities, given that its not part of the WSCC waste plan. Burning rubbish will hamper recycling rates and is not the correct message to send to companies who manufacture packaging.
The noise and lighting from the facility will severely decrease quality of life to the local communities and the facility will run 24/7 with excessive lighting due to the proximity to Gatwick Airport.
Local wildlife will suffer due to the noise, lighting and pollution that this facility will bring to a highly desirable area devaluing the area for ever. There is absolutely no benefit to the area if this facility goes ahead, Horsham is a desirable historic market town, visited by people all over the country and a good family town. If this facility goes ahead this will no longer be the case and the local economy will suffer negatively as a result. I appeal to WSCC to decline this application in full and NOT allow this facility to go ahead at this site.

Y
539 Mrs Hannah Paxton 137, Cootes Avenue, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 Object 24-APR-2018 I am really concerned about the detrimental effect within the Horsham area regarding large lorries trundling through our lovely surrounding countryside.

Also to have a chimney of a 95 metre stature which has to be lit due to the airport ( one of the busiest in Europe!!!) vicinity.

The residents of Station Road are already effected with the stress of what is to be for their future when they have invested life savings in living in a once beautiful area which is now going to be the opposite.

Why don't they relocate this idea to the edge of Kent as we have enough to put up with in this area given the effects we have living next to a major airport.
Y
540 Mr Thomas Shadbolt 7, Oaks Close, Horsham, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 4TZ Object 24-APR-2018 There is absolutely no need for an industrial sized incinerator on the outskirts of Horsham. This would be of no benefit to us, only for lining the pockets of external companies who won't even be based in the local area or contributing to Horsham residents actual needs.  How will the increased heavy vehicle traffic on our already busy roads benefit us?  More pot holes which take months to fix, more fumes for my children to breathe in and zero gain to our countryside.
How about Britanniacrest build the incinerator on the outskirts of Chichester? With an increased population perhaps you might actually gain from it and reap the wonderful rewards of under performing Counsils all over the South of England ferrying large trucks full of excess waste to your location instead.
For once instead of helping to make people who don't even live locally or pay into the local economy richer wouldn't it be nice if Horsham District Council or WSCC in Chichester made a GOOD difference in the local area?

A life-long Horsham resident.

Our recycling collections have been reduced- so we are told- to force us to recycle more. So why do we now want to go polluting the environment by burning more?
No doubt Brittania Crest will get a juicy council contract and make lots of money whilst filling the air with toxins and our health will deteriorate. This will put extra strain on local- overstretched- NHS services in the long run.
There is no need for a ?jobs for the boys? public enquiry. It is clear in the modern and CIVILISED world that this proposal is anachronistic at best and has no place in modern society. Do what my industry is doing- be less polluting, NOT MORE.

545 Mrs Anne Jack 16, 16, Petworth Drive, Horsham, RH12 5JH Object 24-APR-2018 This is an unnecessary development to have near a residential area.

546 Mr Rod Kitchin 3, Trefoil Close, Horsham, RH12 5FQ Object 24-APR-2018 In summary; wrong location; wrong time and wrong solution.

Wrong location

The proposed development of an incinerator by Britaniacrest would be right next to a housing development with a housing capacity of 5000 to 10000 people. The impact of emissions from such a facility are still unknown and therefore a very cautious approach should be taken to the siting of such facilities. Transportation by road will introduce pollution from vehicles as well as the depositing of waste in bushes and hedgerows which is already very evident around the roads of North Horsham. It is clearly not just coffee cups and the like thrown from cars by inconsiderate drivers and passengers but extends to more commercial waste that comes from lorries, probably on their way to the current facilities

Wrong time

There is significant change coming in the near future to alter the way we package items and therefore reduce in particular the amount of plastic used in the supply chain. Public opinion will continue to press for change to a more sustainable economy as a result of recent publicity about the effects of pollution on the worlds seas and environment in general. There is likely to be an over capacity of incineration facilities in the UK which will lead to a reduction of recycling rates which cannot be a good thing. West Sussex is currently well behind the recycling rates of the best councils in the UK and facilities to increase recycling should be introduced in preference to burning.

Wrong solution

A far better use of the site would be to extend the recycling capabilities of the site and perhaps develop transportation by rail of the sorted waste to recovery facilities. Burning waste will be equivalent to introducing a power plant running on fossil fuels.

Horsham is a lovely market town with green fields and clean fresh air.  I want my family and I to continue to live in this clean environment and the plan for an incinerator will not support this.  I believe that a more suitable location should be found away from Horsham especially with the ever growing population.  If you want to support the thousands of houses bring built then a school would be more appropriate.

549 Mrs AC Morris 13, TENNYSON CLOSE, HORSHAM, WEST SUSSEX, RH12 5PN Object 24-APR-2018 1. The proposal does not comply with WSCC Waste Local Plan
Strategic Objective 5 - The size of facility and proposed throughput are way in excess of local needs and will require waste to be transported into the site from other counties - bringing increased road traffic and associated pollution.

Strategic Objective 10 - There would be no enhancement of the natural environment, quite the contrary.

Policy W11 - The scale of the proposal would have a significant adverse effect on the character of the area.

Policy 12 - The scale, form and design are such that the plant will not integrate with let alone enhance adjoining land uses; the proposal has no regard for local context, topography, landscape or skyline of the surrounding area.

2. Environmental Pollution
Before any consideration is given to the Application a full report should be provided detailing what pollutants could be emitted by the facility, how and where; detailing individually, collectively, and cumulatively over time; the impact on residents and visitors, farmland, livestock and the natural environment.  In addition, an assessment should be made of the pollution generated by vehicles bringing waste from outside the area of local need.

3. Scale, location and visibility
The proposed main building structure is vast compared to existing structures.  In addition the horizontal dimensions of the chimney have not been specified but are likely to be many times that implied in the scale drawings.  The whole structure constitutes a major adverse visual impact across a wide area of the District and beyond.

4. Lighting
Multiple aviation lights on the chimney and building, and general buildlng lighting, will cause significant light-pollution across a wide area.

5. Noise
Operation of the plant, especially at night, will cause noise pollution to nearby residents. The undisclosed horizontal dimensions and design characteristics of the chimney could generate noise intrusions during different wind conditions. Increased noise will be generated by the large vehicles required to transport waste to the plant.

6. Chimney
The planning application should not be given any consideration until both the vertical and horizontal dimensions and the design characteristics of the proposed chimney have been stated in the Application.

7. Other matters
The European Commission in describing the Role of Waste-to-Energy in the Circular Economy, 26/01/2017, warned that incineration would hamper the circular waste economy. They recommend investment in more recycling capacity and anaerobic digestion instead - a local tax-payer funded facility we have already invested in.

In addition, DEFRA chief scientific adviser, Ian Boyd, has said that incineration extinguishes innovation and is worse than landfill because it destroys value.

Furthermore, developments in technology now present us with useful alternatives to incineration and there is a sea-change taking place in terms of a reduction in plastic products.

Incineration is an outmoded waste of valuable resources a well as directly and indirectly introducing environmental pollution. The Application has no merit and the proposal would have a significant adverse environmental impact.

552 Mrs Emily Reynolds 25, 25, Crawley Road, Horsham, Horsham, West Sussex, Rh12 4ds Object 24-APR-2018 I am writing to raise my objection to the proposed Horsham Incinerator.

As a mother to three young children residing in Horsham, I am extremely concerned by the health implications of having an incinerator so close to home. There is no 'safe pollution' and it is unthinkable that this application could be considered, let alone passed. How does this benefit anyone living in the locality, when our health and quality of life is at risk?

Aside from the plume of noxious gases that will be emitted into the atmosphere, there is the increased traffic to the incinerator site that will in turn create further pollution.  Then there is the factor of increased noise that would undoubtedly cause a disturbance for people living nearby.

The incinerator is totally unsuitable for the site at the Wealden Brickworks, given its close proximity to residential areas. This goes directly against the advice of The World Health Organisation! What about the thousands of homes that the council has already decided are to be built in this area?

The impact that an incinerator would have upon the environment would be immeasurable. We should be seeking ways to preserve our countryside and wildlife for the future generations, not destroying and poisoning it. The scale and size of the chimney that is proposed, will create a permanent blot on the landscape that would be visible for miles around. The fact that it would need to be permanently lit due to being on a flight path, further shows how intrusive the chimney is upon the environment around it.

Please dismiss this application and protect the wellbeing of everyone living in the area

I live within a mile of this proposed site in Durfold Road RH12 5HZ. I have 2 children ages 8 and 3 who will be exposed to the waste that will reach our property from the chimney. They will also breathe in the increased Co2 emissions from the HGVs that will be accessing the site.

Over the last 7 years of living in Horsham we have suffered the increase in traffic noise from the A264 due to ever rising housing developments and the extremely unpleasant smell from the waste already processed at Langhurst. Further applications such as this one and the North Horsham Housing development (as it is) are decreasing the desirability of living in North Horsham, not just for those of us already there, but for new buyers also.

Please do not approve the new application thus prioritising your Horsham residents' health and quality of living over a profit making developers plans and let's put our energy into increased recycling instead.

556  Rev Mike Nelson - Object 24-APR-2018 Hello,

I wish to register my objection to the planning application WSCC/015/18/NH to build an incinerator in North Horsham.

My objections are:

1. Quality of air and quality of life ¿ it is likely that particulates from the incinerator will be in the air over Horsham and in the surrounding areas. It is quite obvious from research that even with quality filtration this will still have an impact on air quality around the area and across the town.
2. Location ¿ the site of the incinerator is likely to be on the doorsteps of the local authority housing in the new liberty property development coming to the North of Horsham. There are people who have such little choice over where they live and the accommodation available to them, that to then place them next to something that could have considerable impact on their health and quality of life seems completely unjustifiable.

Please register my objection based on the above reasons.

Yours in Christ,

1. I have a young family and believe the new plant will be a risk to their health: citing the World Health Organisation, a waste incinerator should not be placed near a populated area
2. The proposal is planned by a private company just for profit, the roads will be clogged up with large HGV's shipping waste in from other counties, causing further pollution and damaging the local roads
3. The new building and especially the revised chimney of 95m will be an eye sore
A few years ago Horsham was high up on a poll of best places to live in the UK, an incinerator polluting our air with carbon dioxide and Nox emissions will make this a laughable proposition!

I strongly object to the proposed plans to build an incinerator in the Horsham area as outlined in reference WSCC/015/18/NH.

I have just signed a petition to support the local objection of the proposed plans at www.change.org which has generated almost 2,500 signatures already.

This is my objection:

Building an incinerator in Horsham would not only be an eyesore on the horizon, but it could eventually contribute to health defects in the local population, and transform our beautiful natural landscape into an industrial wasteland. In addition to the extra traffic, noise and light pollution, it would degrade air, soil and water quality with its enormous towering chimney, that would be churning out tonnes of poisonous fumes into our atmosphere.

There is still a strong agricultural presence in the area, so this pollution would affect our cultivated crops, livestock, and food production. This incinerator is unsafe and unsuitable for Horsham.

Consideration should be given to relocate the proposed development to an already established industrial site away from densely populated areas, nature reserves, and agricultural food production.

Moving forward, we need to address society¿s insatiable throw-away consumer culture. We need to be more conscious about the materials we use, recycle more, and send less non-biodegradable waste to landfill.

I would be grateful if you could please acknowledge receipt of my objection.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours faithfully

1) The incinerator is a purely commercial undertaking by the company Britanniacrest and is not part of WSCC waste management plan. At this moment in time a taxpayer funded BIFFA operated Mechanical Biological Treatment facility is in operation at the same site where the incinerator would be build. An incinerator would make a mockery of recycling targets set by the government and already in Westminster politicians move away from building of incinerators in favor of recycling.

2) The proposed incinerator is a stand alone unit, whereby the heat generated is not converted into electricity or heating for houses. This is happening with the operation of incinerators in Europe particularly in Germany, which result in highly efficient incinerator plants that allows the operators to bid for waste from the UK to be incinerated in Germany.
This will led to an under utilization of the plant to built in Horsham and this in turn will make the operation uneconomical and continuous operation in order keep  extremely byproducts from the incineration process such as dioxins at the lowest possible levels rather unlikely.

3) The proposed plant needs feeding with large amounts of waste from outside the county that will lead to enormous amounts of HGV traffics in  particular the A264 and makes the single carriage part of the A24 between Capel  and  Horsham a highly dangerous road to drive on. Judging by the WSCC and HDC often underwhelming  efforts to keep these and other roads in good state repair to date, potholes and broken road surfaces will be the result of this unsustainable increase of HGV traffic.

4)) Another area of concern are environmental and health implications with increasing CO2 release in the atmosphere highly toxic byproducts from the incineration process.

5) What has changed from the previous to the current application in our opinion nothing. The proposer Brittanniacrest has made no effort to address the facts above and will try with well paid consultants and high calibre legal experts to scare those in WSCC responsible for the planning into submission.

Please remember the application has no benefit for West Sussex and the Horsham area. You are representatives of the West Sussex electorate and not bound to the commercial interests of companies such as  Britanniacrest.

Yours sincerely

563   Mr Gary Heron Ardea, 23, Highdown Way, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 5JJ Object 25-APR-2018 At a time when the Council is increasing taxation on the grounds of being a less polluting couincil and on environmental grounds, it is beyond the highest hypocrisy should this be granted.
Our recycling collections have been reduced- so we are told- to force us to recycle more. So why do we now want to go polluting the environment by burning more?
No doubt Brittania Crest will get a juicy council contract and make lots of money whilst filling the air with toxins and our health will deteriorate. This will put extra strain on local- overstretched- NHS services in the long run.
There is no need for a ?jobs for the boys? public enquiry. It is clear in the modern and CIVILISED world that this proposal is anachronistic at best and has no place in modern society. Do what my industry is doing- be less polluting, NOT MORE.

567 Mr & Mrs Brandon & Jill Pleasant 103, Ropeland Way, Horsham, RH12 5NZ Object 25-APR-2018 Dear West Sussex Planning Applications

This email is in response to the consultation on the Britaniacrest revised planning application.

Objection.
We continue to strongly oppose this application on numerous grounds.

The application remains at odds with the West Sussex Local Plan to protect the health and amenity of local residents. In addition Britaniacrest have provided little or no information on toxicity data, the detail of the resultant pollution or the possible impact on air quality. The fact that the Environment Agency has decreed the chimney must be 95 metres high must say something about ensuring the plume and undefined pollutants are kept as far away as possible. The visual impact of a chimney this size that will be permanently lit cannot be underestimated.

The generation of any electrical power has to have the infrastructure in place along with specific customers in mind in order to be of any value, there remains little detail on either of these key points.

The proposal far exceeds the requirements for West Sussex, if the anticipated waste source is a combination of domestic, commercial and industrial waste from outside the county then a site more suitable to this volume in an existing industrial area should be considered rather than a site that is on the edge of an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Britaniacrest have failed to demonstrate any recognition of the impact HGV traffic will have on the local roads that are unsuitable for the transport of such a large volume of waste materials and the associated noise pollution.

The recent approval of the local building plan to allow at least 2 thousand homes to be built on land to the north of the A264 will site these homes in close proximity of the proposed incinerator, who is going to want to purchase a home downwind of a plume of unknown toxicity and pollutants?

Horsham District Council has a recycling target to reach 50% by 2020, this is the national target which it is hoped will be supported by the recent change in bin collections to fortnightly instead of weekly to encourage local residents to recycle more. It is claimed that 57% of the waste we currently throw away can be recycled so what is the incentive to recycle more when this proposal will only encourage more waste to justify it¿s existence?
Furthermore some incinerators in Europe are struggling to find sufficient waste to be fed enough to keep going and are therefore facing decommissioning as a consequence.

In summary this proposal represents nothing more than further industrialisation of our rural landscape and a profit centre for what is an outdated method of handling a dwindling supply of waste and is the wrong solution in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Please make the right and only decision and reject outright this proposal.

I object to this application on the grounds that pollution and fallout from an incinerator of a scale so huge - and most significantly requiring a chimney so high - that it would impact on views from heavily populated areas and protected landscapes for miles around, will be bad for the long term health and wellbeing of people ¿ particularly in Crawley, downwind from the site.

574  Ann Swain 18, Shottermill, Horsham, RH12 5HG Object 25-APR-2018 Dear Sir

I would like to object to this application on the following grounds:

Safety:   The height of the tower, closeness to Gatwick Airport routes  and the need already identified  for it to be permanently lit indicates that a clear safety risk has already been identified.

Pollution:  Waste incinerators should not be built near populated areas but this site is adjacent to the North Horsham site which is only separated from Horsham built up area by  a by-pass.

Recycling v Incineration: It is clear Government  policy to encourage recycling instead of  disposal for landfill or incineration.  This application is in opposition to that policy.

Existing treatment facilities:  We already have a Mechanical Biological Treatment Facility in North Horsham.

We do not want Horsham to become the known as the town where other towns send their waste.  This role must be shared around and we have already taken our share.  

Where  are other treatment facilities located in West Sussex?

Even if they clean the waste gases being emitted from the tower they are going to contain higher levels of CO2 which is now recognised as being harmful to health.

It is not clear about access to this site  - the local roads are not suitable for more HGVs let alone the increased pollution they will bring.

The North Horsham site includes  a primary as well as a secondary school.  It is totally unacceptable for an incineration plant to be built near these.

578 Mr M I Darby 78, Comptons Lane, Horsham, RH13 6BJ Object 25-APR-2018 Dear Sir/Madam

I oppose the Application to build an industrial incinerator in Warnham.

The need for such a very tall chimney stack (95m) shows there are substantial potential health risks to the large number of residents of the nearby towns and villages.  There must be of order 100,000 people living within a 6 mile radius of the proposed site, and this number will rise by at least 20,000 by the time the present house building plans are completed.

The modelling of air quality in Section 7 uses a particle emission rate from the stack of 0.5 grams per second (table 7.8).  In 24 hours the stack  would therefore emit 43kg of particulates.  For short periods this could rise to 129kg.   Where does this go?  The Application should show how this mass is distributed  on the ground for the area around the site, at least within a 3 mile radius. Only then would it be possible to see how different districts would be affected.

The wind-rose (fig.5.1.1) shows a prevailing wind from the SW, which suggests that the proposed North Horsham housing development, Faygate, and the nearest Crawley estates would be most affected.  There is also a high frequency of winds from the NE suggesting Warnham, Broadbridge Heath and Southwater would also be affected.   However, no account seems to have been taken of climate change and of the possibility of future changes to the wind patterns.  The worse case scenario is that all the emission is deposited in Horsham.

A 95m stack would be a blot on the landscape, made even worse if it emits a plume.  The diagram of the modelled plume, fig5.1.2, looks wrong.  Because of the high efflux velocity of the gases and the buoyancy effect due to their high temperature (140C), the `effective height¿ of the stack in the modelling should be greater than 95m.  The plume will be higher than shown and hence more visible.

Yours faithfully

580  G Gough 9, St Chistophers Close, Horsham, RH12 2EH Object 25-APR-2018 There are so many reasons to object to the proposed plan. and I fully support all the reasons listed at ni4H.com.

It is of particular concern to me that the plan will not enhance the rural area in any way. It will impinge on the area both local and more distant.
The height of the chimney is visually inappropriate.

This plan is a totally commercial venture and does not have the interests of the residents of West Sussex or Surrey at heart. In all probability the A264 and the A24 will require extra maintenance as out-of-county waste will be transferred in and toxic residues will be transferred out.

There is a rapidly changing approach to the use of plastics across the country and there is growing support to address more effective recycling. A parliamentary motion is being prepared to address a moratorium on incineration facilities. because we already have surplus capacity for burning waste in the UK.

It seems possible that the technology proposed for this site may be out of date in just a few years.

I would ask the planning committee to adhere to its existing local waste plan and reject the proposal in the best interests of Horsham, and West Sussex.

Y
581  Robert Dawson 43, Brook Road, Horsham, RH12 5FS Object 25-APR-2018 Dear Sirs,

I feel that the proposed incinerator is just too large and would have such a negative impact on the environment, both directly and indirectly through increased traffic during construction and operation.

Not only would this affect existing residents, further homes are proposed in the area.

This is at a time when there is a sensible push to increase the extent of recycling, which has made considerable progress recently.

Although I would prefer that the incinerator is not built at all, at the very least WSCC should have a full council meeting to properly debate the matter.

Yours faithfully

This is for the following reasons

1 Outlandish and over powering look on the landscape. If you can refuse simple housing requests like dormer windows to the front of my house, this makes a mockery of any future planning decisions you make! This will look unsightly from miles away.
2 Unhealthy development. The smoke from this will impact on future generations. Please consider the increase in cases of asthma etc that will be caused by this.
3 Devaluation of homes in the surrounding area.
4 Rubbish already litters the A264 and other West Sussex Roads. This will probably increase.
5. Over development of North Horsham. This  has already been earmarked for housing and development. Please look for development plans further South.
6. Local schools are existing and to be built nearby. The children¿s health and well being should be considered.

-independent reports suggest that by 2023 the UK will be at over capacity. This incinerator is simply not needed.

http://www.eunomia.co.uk/uk-2030-recycling-already-limited-to-66-and-falling/

- incineration involves a relatively long comittment of 20-25 years. In that time, what improvements could be made to the recycling industry that negate the use of incineration? Horsham council would be expected to sign a contract to reduce a certain amount of waste every year for incineration. Other councils have been fined for notmeeying this. As a council your focus should be on reducing waste and increasing recycling.

- areas where incineration is introduced see a fall in recycling rates.

- there will be toxins, however small. There¿s not been enough long term research into the environmental and physical harm it may cause.

I therefore would like to object to this proposal.

I would like to object to the above planning application for the new ¿recycling¿ facility in North Horsham.

My reasons are as follows:-
1. There is already a recycling facility run by BIFFA at the site which is already detrimental to the area.This already has enough a considerable number of Virador  lorries entering the area.

2.This new facility  will only be for built for financial gain for Brittanicrest and its agents and will be of no benefit to the residents of Horsham nor WSSC.

3.The facility will have waste transported from a wide area so HGV¿s will be arriving at the site from all the A roads feeding the area at all times of day so introducing further traffic and wear and tear on the already busy roads.The vehicles are large,dirty and polluting.

4. This type of facility should not be sited anywhere near to a residential area so how can anybody agree to such an application.

Please reject this application unanimously, it is not required, it has no benefit to the Horsham Community. It is not wanted.

588 Mr Matt Simons 6, Gordon Road, Horsham, RH12 2EF Object 25-APR-2018 I wish to object to this application. An incinerator so near a populated area will be detrimental to the residents health and the environment of our district.

589 Mrs Rebecca Struthers 1A, Guildford Road, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 1LU Object 25-APR-2018 I strongly object to the proposal from Britaniacrest to develop a waste incinerator on the edge of our town.  I fail to understand how we are encouraging waste to be disposed of in this way with all the associated risks of increased traffic and pollution to name a few. Investment should be made on environmentally friendly waste disposal and encouraging a much better rate if recycling - money should be being spent specially in this area.  From the west side of Horsham we can already smell fumes from the current incinerator and I can't begin to imagine how horrendous this would be with a new processing plant.  Please think of our younger generations, we should be encouraging outdoor play in safe and healthy environments but passing this application would prevent this. Y
590   Gatwick Diamond Business 14, Basepoint, Unit 14, Metcalf Way, Crawley, Crawley, RH11 7XX Support 25-APR-2018 We are writing in support of the above Planning Application for the Recycling, Recovery and Renewable Energy Facility and Ancillary Infrastructure.

Gatwick Diamond Business is one of the largest business organisations in the Coast to Capital region with just under 450 members across the region.  We work to bring economic prosperity to those members and to the wider region.

We support the development of this Facility as it will
¿ Provide the opportunity to generate electricity from waste that would be taken to landfill
¿ Provide the opportunity to recycle materials that otherwise might go to landfill
¿ Create around 35 jobs
¿ The developer (Britaniacrest) are an experienced and approved waste recycler and processing company
¿ The site is already handling industrial and commercial waste so there will be no change of use to the site and traffic already accommodates up to 230,000 tonnes of waste per annum
¿ Provides micro-generation of electricity & an opportunity to use waste heat from the facility, possibly in the proposed housing developments nearby.

The concept of incinerating waste (with or without energy generation) is an established, if slightly old fashioned, one. While this development does not address the longer term issue of resource management (where a circular economy makes best use of existing materials rather than simply disposing of them), it is the duty of the County Council to develop its own strategic Waste Plan taking into account alternative waste management options.

With rising costs of energy, lack of availability of landfill, along with the environmental impact of waste, this Facility will contribute positively to the Gatwick Diamond region as well as address the disposal of locally generated waste.

Proposed building is substantially larger than anything in the area and new design will not make it fit in any better into the local environment which is predominantly residential.
Chimney height, requirement to be lit and plume will make it visible for miles around, round the clock.
With the national move against plastic use and similar incinerators already not working at capacity, the long term business case does not appear to be viable.
Currently no incineration plume exists so the impact of the gases emitted will be detrimental to the health of those in the local area irrespective of any filtration.
Additional HGV traffic required to supply the facility will stretch capacity on local roads which are already increasingly congested from current and future approved developments further increasing pollution from extra volume and more frequent queues.

Dear Mr Dumbrell
WSCC/015/18/NH; Recycling, Recovery and Renewable Energy Facility and Ancillary Infrastructure,
former Wealden Brickworks, Langhurst Wood Road, RH12 4QD

I write in astonishment and appalled at the proposed planning application as headed above.    As a Crawley resident I would be downwind of the proposed incinerator and like other residents be subjected to varying degrees of toxic waste depending on wind direction and strength.  

Speaking from the perspective of someone very concerned for the preservation of our shared environment and a huge supporter of generation of energy by renewable means I feel the proposed project is being misrepresented as being of benefit by generation of energy by a renewable method.  At best and putting it politely, it is a wolf in sheep's clothing.  True renewable energy is generated by non toxic wind, solar and tidal means.

Simply having a tall, 95metre, chimney stack will not negate the emitted  pollutants but instead ensure further dispersal.  No filtration system will ensure 100% extraction of toxic heavy metals, such as arsenic and mercury, which are known to be cumulative causing ill health to both humans and other animals (farm livestock included) through pollution of air, soil, water and plant life.  

Whilst the income created by revenue received from Britaniacrest (or any other subsequent contractor) and employment generated by the incinerator may seem compelling, the long term and knock on costs in terms of healthcare and lowering of quality of life to thousands will far outweigh the benefits of short term income.

Strong regulation is frequently cited as an insurance against any damage caused but, in truth, such regulation in this country does not exist.  Nor is legal representation accessible to those likely to be affected due to its prohibitive cost.

Passing the application, would at best, be totally irresponsible and it therefore, for the wellbeing of the environment and health MUST  THEREFORE  BE  REJECTED.

Yours sincerely

595   Mrs Katherine Risley Hazel Cottage, Worthing Road, Horsham, Dial Post, West Sussex, RH13 8NH Object 26-APR-2018 I object in the strongest possible terms.  The chimney will be a local eyesore (higher than the Statue of Liberty and nowhere near as symbolic) that is  in no way in keeping  with the local area of beauty.  It is completely unsympathetic to nearby growing areas of population and those planned for the next few decades  In terms of the high levels of pollution created  by burning waste  will be added to by pollution from exhaust emissions from vehicles accessing the site from throughout  the south-east of England. It has been suggested in reports that the levels of pollution may become higher than government targets, indicating that to locate  such a plant so near residential areas is irresponsible to those who live there. Whatismore, roads are already heavily congested with local traffic, and to add more heavy goods vehicles into the mix is likely to exacerbate this at peak times. it is important to realise that  the idea of approving and allowing the construction of incinerators is in direct opposition to government policies for all plastics and packaging to be either recyclable or biodegradable by 2025. A 7 year programme such as this suggests that it is highly feasible to achieve and thus an incinerator of this size should not be on the regional waste management agenda.. Y

I wish to object to the proposed development of a large scale recycling, recovery and renewable energy facility to be located the former Wealden Brickworks site.

The reasons for my objection are based on the need for such a large scale development in the North Horsham Area is unproven and it's long term viability is also unproven.

Significant change is taking place in our attitude to waste and it's disposal, that the inclusion of a large scale incinerator at this facility will in the medium term be economically unviable.

This application relies on waste being brought into the area for commercial gain, the residents of the area will not directly benefit and to the contrary will suffer all the downsides in terms of pollution of the atmosphere, noise from plant operations and vehicle movements, congestion and damage to public highways by heavy commercial vehicles, detrimental health implications for the local population from airborne particulates and loss of view of the green landscape.

This application should not receive consent bearing in mind the close proximity of the proposed North Horsham Development with it's high density of housing and thousands of new residents looking for somewhere safe and clean to live in an attractive environment and bringing direct economic benefit to the area and paying local taxes.

These developments have a history of unreliability and when things go wrong the operators simply deny culpability leaving the local authorities the expense of remedial work.

I sincerely hope this is not the case, please listen to the people of Horsham who will  have to live with this for ever and our children and grandchildren.  I have lived here for 55 years, my children and grandchildren live here and it breaks my heart that such a thing could be allowed to happen.  I can move, but others can't.

What is the motivation to allow such a thing I wonder.?

There are reports that the emissions from this facility have been seriously underestimated.  This is a terrible legacy, how can you, in all conscience, recommend it.

Please be absolutely assured that I, and everyone I know, will not vote for  your party ever again.  You will not be in power next year after this.  You were elected by the people of this area and must take notice of us, not walk roughshod over our wishes.

Please please listen to all the objections, you cannot believe that this is good for the area, there is no justification for such a travesty.

I don't want a reply,just action to stop this before it is too late.

608   Mrs Kathleen Woodward 19, Keats Close, North Horsham, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 5PL Object 26-APR-2018 My husband and I think this proposal is inappropriate visually and that pollution from the stack and from increased road movements is unacceptable.  The roads are already congested and smells have not gone unnoticed.  An investment has to make financial sense so even if waste produced in Horsham itself reduces all efforts will be made to find sources from further afield.  This planning application must be refused.

609   Mr Paul Bellringer 1, Quarry Close,, Rusper Road, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 5QN Object 26-APR-2018 Until we can incinerate waste that cannot be otherwise recycled without harmful emissions being released into the air this is not the way to deal with rubbish.
I strongly object to this particular application on grounds of the above comment and that it is,in any event, the wrong location. The North Horsham development scheme with 2,750 new homes plus infrastructure is scheduled to be built adjacent to the proposed site It would increase pollution levels and exacerbate traffic problems to an intolerable level by increasing lorry movements from the existing very high level due to the MBT facility in Langhurstwood road. Added to which it has the potential to adversely affect road surfaces with additional lorry movements and disfigure verges with more litter.

611 Mr Tim Kimber 78, Lambs Farm Road, Horsham, RH124DG Object 26-APR-2018
I STRONGLY object to the proposed construction of an incinerator in Langhurst Road, Warnham near Horsham. The fumes, which will NOT be pure, will drift over the proposed north Horsham development on the prevailing wind and over Warnham in the opposite direction if the wind is from the east.

Further to all the above the fact that there will be a huge increase in heavy vehicles destroying our already overcrowded and crumbling roads and the eyesore of the building and ridiculous chimney.
I trust you will reject this proposal.
Y
612 Mrs Olga Prudits -, 31, Arundale walk, Horsham, RH121QW Object 26-APR-2018 I put a lot of thought into this response so I hope you find it useful.

There is no question about the fact that we as society have to find a sustainable solution to deal with waste. A solution that is sustainable environmentally and sustainable in long term without causing harm to anyone.

I think we need to ask the question whether we are solving the right problem with this proposed facility. It may be a quick fix to get rid of the waste that would otherwise go to landfill but this will not solve the problem of waste existing that can't be recycled. The aim would be a cradle to cradle system where there is no waste as everything is used to be recycled.

The reason that we have materials e.g packaging that can't be recycled is that it is being produced and sold by e.g supermarkets. Why should the people living around the incinerator suffer for the fact that manufacturers and retail are not being responsible?
We as a family will go through a great deal of effort to buy produce without packaging, recycle everything we can, compost green waste in our garden. And why do we do this if we have to breathe in the air with toxins from a nearby incinerator because others are not so conscious? I CAN CHOOSE THE MATERIALS I BUY NAD TO RECYCLE BUT I CAN NOT CHOOSE THE AIR I BREATHE.

I do understand that the output gases will be filtered, but what if there is a leak, what if there is a malfunction, what if the filters are not cleaned? And at the end of the day there are toxins produced even if it is within the limit, it is produced.

Packaging that can not be recycled is just one part of the problem. What about food waste? The county does not collect and recycle food waste, and while some of it can be composted there is a substantial amount of organic waste that could be managed sustainable way. The food waste would be burned while it could have been recycled.
The Swedish are famous for their waste to energy programme and facilities (incinerators) but they but a GREAT effort into recycle EVERYTHING they can including food.

And lastly, what will encourage us, the manufacturers and retailers to be more sustainable if it is easier to burn and than it is out of sight out of mind.

I hope I can trust the council to make a decision that will be taking in consideration the long term wellbeing of the people they are representing.

613 Miss Emily Robins Rose Cottage, 5, Station Rd, Horsham, Warnham, West Sussex, RH123SR Object 26-APR-2018 I live very close to this proposed incinerator and do not want to grow up in Horsham living by something of this magnitude. As a young Horsham resident I am sad to say I will be looking to move away from the area if this is approved. If I am thinking this what would other young residents of Horsham think! also no young families will want to move into the Horsham area either especially the North Horsham Development. This could have a far reaching impact on Horsham and must not be approved. Furthermore I have the following comments:-
1) The proposal does not meet WSCC waste plan
2) The visual impact of the structure and more importantly the chimney will have a hugh impact on Horsham and the surrounding areas and will be visible from as far as Box Hill!!!
3) Light pollution will increase resulting from the high level lighting on the chimney to alert overhead planes
4) Recycling should be the key driver from WSCC not incineration as currently being considered by the government on the political cross party Early Day Motion (581) as there is insufficient waste in the UK to operate these facilities so waste would have to be imported from other EU countries like Germany!!!!!!!!!!!! how is this going to save our planet!!!!!
5) Horsham is already a very high risk area in terms of air pollution. If you were to add such a facility these levels would potentially become dangerous
6) Although there are no official government facts relating to risks associated with incineration there are independent assessments that show them as being directly associated with increases in child mortality rates and other general health issues with people living close to incinerators. These potential risks cannot be ignored. Lets face it we were all told that Diesel cars were better for the environment until recently!!!!! so what could future reports on incinerators throw up!!!!!!!!
7) This is purely a private enterprise and a money making scheme for Britaniacrest as we understand that they will not be building and running the facility they merely want to achieve planning to sell of to the highest bidder

615 Mr Christopher Wilmott 56 Cook Way, Cook Way, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 3US Object 26-APR-2018 As I see it, this incinerator will not benefit Horsham or Sussex, as the waste is coming from outside the county, but it will provide profit for a private company at our expense. This Incinerator would have an impact on our local infrastructure. Our roads within the North Horsham boundary are heaving with the current amount of traffic and most of them are in a poor condition and in need of repair. It would pollute our local land, air and have a huge impact on the health and well-being of residents. Horsham already has a Biological Waste Plant, we do not need this monstrosity! Y

618 Mr & Mrs Ken & Sue Howlett The Glebe, Church Street, Warnham, RH12 3QW Object 26-APR-2018 Dear Sir
We wish to object to the planning application Planning ref: WSCC/015/18/NH at Wealden Brickworks, Langhurstwood Road, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 4QD.

There is no justification for the building of a massive waste incinerator in this area and the proposed location will be an eyesore in a beautiful area of natural beauty. It is not the place for a 26.5 m high chimney that will be visible from miles around in all directions. It clearly fails to meet most of the objectives of the WSCC waste plan and as West Sussex has already given planning permission for an incinerator at Ford it is very difficult to understand why another should be built close to the county boundary.

As Council Tax payers we have already contributed to the cost of the Biffa biomechanical digester, which is a more environmentally friendly way to dispose of waste than incineration. Britanniacrest has confirmed that if the incinerator is built it will burn black sack waste and the biomechanical digester will become redundant. We strongly object to this waste of our money and shifting to incineration is simply going against the tide of improving policy on recycling and waste management.

We urge WSCC planning committee to issue an unequivocal rejection of this application.

As an established Waste management company located in West Sussex we, Rabbit Waste Management Ltd, would like to lend our support in favour of the above referenced planning application relating to Britaniacrest¿s vision for a Recycling, Recovery and Renewable Energy Facility in Horsham.

Having been operating in the Waste Management sector in West Sussex for the last 30 years and specifically within the Renewable Energy sector for the last 10 years we can only support the necessity for this type of local facility to sustainably dealing with local waste arising¿s and contributing to Central Government targets for increasing and implementing waste recycling, recovery and decentralised power generation, whilst minimising reliance on landfill and fossil fuel derived fuels.

There is a lot of adverse misinformation irresponsibly circulated about this type of facility which is in no one¿s best interests. The fact that waste will continue to be generated has to be accepted and even at reduced levels reliance on landfill can no longer continue and correctly designed and operated built waste facilities of this nature should be encouraged and indeed local populations should become proud of these facilities rather than scared through misinformed opinions.

Yours faithfully

Mick Adams

Non compliance with many of the policies of WSCC's Waste Local Plan
Scale, location and visibility of the development. The waste plant would be an immense industrial building in an essentially rural area. The chimney would dominate the local countryside.

This application seems to have some very wide and long lasting implications.  So I would like to know under what circumstances the plant will be shut down if-
(a) Doubts about the health consequences arise, or
(b)  Traffic and noise is a problem for local residents.
I would like the final decision whether or not to approve the application to be taken by councillors who live in the Horsham area.

625 Mr John Crockford 5, The Marches, Kingsfold, Horsham, RH12 3SY Object 26-APR-2018 Dear Sirs,

My wife & I have lived at our current address for almost 19 years. During that period, we have suffered from various problems from the land fill site at Langhurstwood Road Horsham. These include periodic objectionable smells, particularly when cloud cover was low, litter on the A24 through our village and pollution, caused by many heavy lorries delivering to the landfill site from many destinations further afield than just the local area.
We understand that an application for an incinerator at that site is being consider by WSCC - application no, WSCC/015/18/NH We strongly object to these plans for the following reasons:

1. The scale of the proposed incinerator suggests that contrary to WSCC guidelines that recycling & treatment facilities should be as close as possible to where waste arises, in this case, a far wider area will be sought.

2. This will result in a significant increase in HGV traffic on our already congested local road network (particularly the A24).

3. We understand that planning permission was given in 2014 for an incinerator to be built in Ford West Sussex. We also understand that this has not yet been built. Why, therefore, do we need another incinerator in Horsham?

4.Emission levels will be detrimental to the local community & countryside, The location is very close to the local conservation area.

5.Apparently 1 tonne of waste burnt, gives off 1 tonne of CO2. Is it sensible to generate electricity so inefficiently, when we are attempting to de-carbonise our energy supplies.

Yours sincerely, Mr J & Mrs C Crockford
Y
626 Mrs Yota Crouch 2, 2, Park Farm close, Horsham, Rh125eu Object 26-APR-2018 I object to the above planning application for the following reasons

Horsham would effectively become the waste dump for the southeast which will not benefit us that live in Horsham or our future generations who will have to deal with the fall out of such an industrial plant.

The incinerator would have a chimney as tall as Big Ben, 95m, with buildings towering above any native UK trees pumping out a concentration of fumes towards highly populated areas of North Horsham, Kilnwood Vale, Crawley and Horley whilst the local residents suffer a decline in value of rural Horsham areas.

There are no guarantees that our local authorities will actually use the Britaniacrest incinerator.  If planning is permitted this commercial incinerator owners would have to negotiate waste tonnage prices with anyone wanting them to burn their waste so it may be cheap for WSCC to transport waste out of the county as it does currently

The planned incinerator would have adverse affects of visual amenity and noise pollution of the proposed Noth horsham development by Liberty. Liberty have also claimed that mitigating measures such as planting of trees will take 15 years to fully establish, too long a time to provide adequate reduction in the severe impact local residents will experience.

Members of the Friends of Warnham Local Nature Reserve have expressed concerns over the application. In particular, they are worried about the environmental effects of discharges from the proposed incinerator on the Nature Reserve.

Ford already has planning for an incinerator (planning obtained in 2014 by Grundon) and Gatwick Airport has recently built one, so there is no need for another incinerator in West Sussex.

Lastly this site would add to the misery of our potholed roads, adding just under 300 of non-green HGV trucks movements¿ everyday as waste is transported to the Wealden Brickworks site from surrounding counties.

East of the the proposed site, in a natural valley down wind, there is going to be a significant housing development.
The prevailing wind and the channelling effect of the valley will mean that emissions will directly affect the residents. This appears to be an oversight by somebody, as the effect on an urban population is patently obvious.

I have lived in an area where a chemical plant was allowed to be built upwind of a village. The average life span dropped by 10 years.

We object to the Britaniacrest application. This ludicrous proposal is purely for profit. We don't waste the Horsham area becoming a waste dumping ground as it will be transported across the county's borders by HGVs who will be further polluting the atmosphere with their Co2 and Nox emissions. The roads are dangerous and clogged up enough without further traffic and noise pollution.
We need to encourage more recycling by burning the waste people wont bother.
The chimney is not only a blight on the landscape but dangerous due to aircraft  and it will cause light pollution and produce cariogenic smoke with long term effects on members of the public. Our children will be breathing this in. If you allow this to happen you are putting lives at risk. The world health organisation advises that no waste incinerators should be built in a populated area and yet this is next to the North Horsham Development.
If this is allowed to happen you should be held responsible for any ill effects to individuals health in the future.
We urge you to object this proposal please show some responsibility to the people that live in the Horsham area.

636  Mark Graham - Object 26-APR-2018 Dear Sir / Madam

I wish to register my objection to the proposed incinerator subject of the above application.

1. The existence of incinerators does not encourage recycling which is where we should all focus our efforts.

2. Recent developments in the recycling of plastics, plus the Government drive on the subject, will lead to more plastic recycling. Incinerators merely burn plastic releasing all kinds of toxins to the atmosphere.

3.  Whatever claims are made about the filtering of particulates from the incinerator chimney stack, fine particulates are released to the atmosphere.

4.  There will never be sufficient sorting of material brought to the incinerator to take out articles such as batteries, chemicals and various polyvinyls - they will end up in the incinerator.

5. For an incinerator in Horsham to be profitable the company will need to import considerable waste from surrounding counties - including London, this of course produces further pollution from traffic as well as considerable traffic movements.

6.  The welcome development of housing in North Horsham will be adversely affected by traffic and pollution, the two developments simply do not belong together.


Please reject this application.

640  Russell Lacey 3, Bricklayer Lane, Faygate, Horsham, RH12 0AA Object 27-APR-2018 Hi

I would like to share with you my objections to the proposed new incinerator in the Horsham area.

¿I strongly object to this new incinerator being built within then this proposed area.

This building will be a visual monstrosity to the surrounding beautiful countryside that resides around this proposed area. The building will be considerably large and will be very noticeable from afar and ruin the landscape of Horsham and immediate areas.

This incinerator will increase the air quality in the immediate area and if strong winds were to prevail then this would go further. We already have a large polluter in the form of Gatwick airport and having this will surely mean Horsham will be putting many lives at risk with such pollutants in the air.

With many new housing developments occurring within the local area, more and more green lands are being consumed, and this will yet be another large site that will do the same. Horsham is slowly losing its precious country lands and green areas for such monstrosities such as this. Horsham will soon lose its appeal to many as the green and rural town that it is.

The site will be 24/7 and will severely impact local and wider traffic with large lorries traversing the local roads and lanes to deliver their load. This again will further impact the air quality and health of local residents, along with potential increase to road accidents.

Such consumption of our green lands must stop and this site be considered for a more suitable location.¿

I will join the growing local support for this new incinerator to be stopped from being built in our lovely town and scaring our beautiful countryside for ever.

Regards

Russell Lacey

641  Georgy Mason - Object 27-APR-2018 Dear Councillors

I feel compelled to write to you as I am extremely disappointed that you plan to support the incinerator planning application


This project is a travesty for so many reasons.  Not only will it reduce recycling rates locally such a shame given your huge investment and achievements in this area- and I believe it will do this given previously examples across the country and Europe have done so It will also billow fumes into our air these fumes are proven to cause asthma and have demonstrable links to infertility in girls.
Now let me share with you what infertility treatment looks like for those of you that are parents to girls!!

If you have Daughter¿s nieces sisters living in the area spare a moment for what infertility treatment will look like:

* it will cost between £6,000 - 10,000 a round
* that's after the 2 year of humiliating tests you will have to endure
* each cycle will last about 6 weeks
* where you will be injecting yourself 2-3 times a day, taking 1-3 tablets a day more thank likely about 10-16 supplements at day
* You will be travelling for scans every 3/4 days
* You will do all of this not knowing if you will get a positive outcome
* Only 1-6 cycles is succesful
* If you do get pregnant having gone through all of this you will be constantly worried about miscarriage which occurs in normal pregnancy in 1 in 3 and 1 in 5 for fertility patients

so before you decide to support this project please consider if this is a risk you are willing to put your girls through.

On a more practical and less emotive level this will increase traffic congestion and will cause our already damaged roads to be more so.
the single carriage way section of the A24 is already woefully unsuitable to the size of the town growth but adding this to our existing planning is ridiculous.

I appreciate many people want to move to this wonderful town and that is a great thing for our community and a reflection of what a special please we have here but I feel as our Councillors you have lost sight of why people are moving here in the first place.  Country air, wonderfully community etc.. .

In Europe these incinerators are being decommissioned due to lack of rubbish  following increased recycling, therefore why can the council not see this technology is outdated.

I cannot express the extent to which I object to this outrageous project, and I would hope as my representatives in the council you will head my concerns.

644   Mrs Anne Sedlmayr 5, Langhurst Close, Horsham, RH12 4QB Object 27-APR-2018 I am objecting to this proposed application, on the basis that not only will the proposed incinerator be a blot on the landscape of this rural area, but will omit gases and substances that are a danger to health.  The UK Without Incineration Network has noted in their assessment of the Carbon Assessment submitted by the applicant that this is fundamentally flawed by virtue of not meeting the requirements set out by government in assessing such things. It noted that ¿¿the incineration facility would be 16,479 tcO2e per annum WORSE than sending that same waste directly to landfill. This therefore does not meet local and national plans and policies in relation to carbon emissions and climate change¿. It also notes that the ¿..applicants proposed worse case scenarios could be significantly underestimating the potential permitted emissions from the plant".

Furthermore, the roads in this area cannot sustain any more heavy goods vehicles.

I appreciate that these sorts of applications get through by way of monetary gain for certain parties, and 'backhanders' are common but HDC MUST think of its residents in this instance before it is too late.

645   Mr John Stace 32A, North Road, Crawley, RH10 1JX Object 27-APR-2018 Plant to be built in rural (AONB)and densely populated urban areas.
Will disfigure landscape with height of chimney - would be seen for miles.
Crawley and Horley (densely populated towns and will be even more densely populated as new housing continues non-stop) will be the main beneficiaries of the polluted air.
An environment danger and hazard to people, animals and facilities for a very large area.

646 Ms Penny Groome 10, Greenfinch Way, Horsham, RH12 5HB Object 27-APR-2018 Dear Sirs

In connection with the above proposal I would like to set out below my objections to be considered by the Planning Committee:-

1. The BIFFA Mechanical Biological Treatment facility which has been in situ for some time has already been doing the appropriate refuse treatment for Horsham and surrounding areas.
2. We understand that waste to feed the proposed incinerator will be transported from some far away places across borders by HGVs, polluting our air with Co2 and Noxious emissions, and will also cause traffic problems with the number of vehicles involved in this connection on a regular basis, which is not acceptable.
3. We understand that incineration increases Co2 levels, damaging our health and the environment, again which is not acceptable.
4. We understand the proposed incinerator chimney will be some 95metres high and will be a blight on the landscape, including light and noise pollution to the area, again which is not acceptable.
5. We understand the WHO advises that areas near a waste incinerator should not be populated and yet this facility will be adjacent to the North Horsham Development with the plume heading over nearby conurbations.  This cannot be allowed to happen.

I hope these objections will be added to those previously sent to the Council and considered in an effort to refuse the present application and any future application for an incinerator in this area.,

Yours faithfully,

Penelope Groome

649  Sandra Czaban 15, Bailey Close, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 5QR Object 27-APR-2018 To whom it may concern, I would like to object to the above planning application on the following grounds:

The size of this building will have a detrimental impact on Horsham and surrounding villages, it is not in keeping with the beautiful countryside in which it is situated. My property is in the area where the incinerator is planned and I specifically moved here to enjoy the countryside.

The scale of this plant and its operations will require substantial amounts of waste being shipped in from any area within the M25. West Sussex does not produce enough waste to keep this facility viable and indeed other incinerators are being scaled down because they cannot feed enough waste into the on a 24/7 basis.

I do not believe the local roads will be able to support the huge increase in traffic, the noise is also a problem for local residents. From 4am in the morning traffic noise increases immensely, to feed the incinerator waste vehicles will be in transit all night and day.

I have audited several incinerators in my role as Facilities and waste manager for a large pharmaceutical company, all audits have found major issues with emissions, storage, security and procedures not followed. There is nothing to make me believe that this facility will be any different.

Britaniacrest have a massive site between Gatwick and Reigate, why can they build it there?

Please refuse permission for this monstrosity to built in Horsham. We don't need or want it.

Whether an incinerator is safe or not depends on many factors including very precise operation. There are no details as to who will operate the system.

In addition they need a constant supply of fuel, in this case waste, to perform safely. The Local supply will not be enough and waste supplies will have to come progressively from a great distance including from other countries.  Brittaniacrest say there will be no increase in lorry movements, but this is inevitable adding to an already large number.

Incinerators are already becoming irrelevant to waste disposal systems and the future is lees waste and recycling. Such an application should be refused as it will delay or even reduce recycling processes.

Inevitably, emissions from this facility would have serious detrimental effect on the population in the development expected in North Horsham. Relatively small quantities of toxins are now understood to cause permanent injury to human and other animal systems. The damage to the ecology of the area around the facility, both during the building and later operation, could not be repaired.
I do not need to expand the above comments as the detailed and scientific reasons for the claims have been given by other objectors, for example Liberty Property Trust and the Council for the Preservation of Rural England.
May sound judgement with recognition of future effects result in the rejection of the application.

694  Christine Le Penuizic 2, Little Hatch, Horsham, RH12 4BF Object 27-APR-2018 OBJECTION to the proposal for Planning Ref. WSCC/015/18/NH ¿ Planned Incinerator at Wealden Brickworks, Horsham, West Sussex

I¿m objecting to this latest WSCC planning application submitted by Britaniacrest on the following grounds.

1.     I moved to Horsham as it was such a clean town surrounded by fields with a clean air environment. This was essential to maintaining a healthier balance, given my medical conditions. If we have an incinerator in Horsham it will pollute the surrounding area and would impact my medical condition. WSCC should be looking after it citizens and not allow such pollution to invade the homes of the residents of Horsham and surrounding areas with toxic fallout from the 24/7 burning of waste from all over the South of England. This is totally unacceptable!!!!
2.     There is already surplus capacity in Northern Europe, so why not send our waste there? They would only be too happy to accept our waste!
3.     This is totally against the WSCC waste policy, whose Strategic Objective is ¿to protect and, where possible, enhance the natural and historic environments and resources of the County¿. It is also not compliant with it¿s Policy W11: Character, which states ¿Proposal for Waste Development will be permitted PROVIDED that it WOULD NOT have an unacceptable impact on the character, distinctiveness, and sense of place of the different areas of the County¿.¿. There is no possible way that this monstrosity of an industrial incinerator will `enhance the natural and historic environment¿ of Horsham.
4.     The plant is planned to recycle all the waste destined to be burnt from all over South East England. This will lead to lorries arriving all day long from all parts of SE England, adding to the already bad congestion Horsham and surrounding areas are experiencing in peak traffic times, and these vehicles will further add to the rising problem of traffic pollution. This is not acceptable!!
5.     What has happened to the WSCC push on recycling when now it seems they have performed a `U¿ Turn on that policy? The plant will demand a significant waste stream if it is to provide electricity by burning waste, so this pull will encourage people to think they  no longer need to recycle and can throw away valuable materials that we are currently pushing hard to recycle.
6.     Not only that, an incinerator is the least efficient method of generating electricity, as for each tonne burnt it produces a tonne of CO2, which will fall on Horsham and the surrounding areas, GIVING RISE TO INCREASE IN RESPIRATORY AND OTHER HEALTH CONDITIONS and burn a bigger hole in our already depleted Ozone Layer. THIS IS ABSOLUTE MADNESS AND MUST BE STOPPED!!!!
7.     The Nation as a whole is slowly moving away from incineration to recycling, so why build such a polluting plant on our very doorstep, just to generate a wealthy income for the Shareholders of Britanniacrest who no doubt live far away from Horsham.
8.     Finally, if this planning application is approved it will also reduce the value of all properties in Horsham and the surrounding area.  It will become difficult to sell a property, as nobody in their right mind will want to come to live in a town and brin-up heir family in an area that is under the shadow of a 95m tall chimney belching toxins 24/7.

              I consider my comments on the previous application to still be relevant and therefore please take these into account.
             However I would like to reinforce the following points:

1.The visual impact of the proposed chimney on the adjacent  High Weald AONB and surrounding countryside,as well as the town of Horsham will be massive.
2.The dispersal of the plume from the chimney will  aided by the planned height.However it will  also be very dependent on prevailing weather conditions so the amount of pollution locally will vary and is really an unknown.It can be envisaged that in periods of still weather this could be a serious problem in the local area.
The approval of the North Horsham housing development make this consideration  even more important and this application ignores  the advice of  WHO  that  areas  near an incinerator should not be populated

697 Mrs Nicola Palmer Richmond House, 13, Carfax, Horsham, RH12 1AQ Object 27-APR-2018 The size of the construction is excessively large and high and will have a major impact on Horsham and surrounding villages as well as areas of outstanding natural beauty. It will be an eyesore from miles away and is hardly going to be a great welcome to the Horsham area. It will be a deterrent to visitors. The whole character of Horsham and its surrounding villages will be damaged by such an intrusive structure.

The fact that waste will be travelling over great distances (outside of this area) is unacceptable in an age when we should be reducing carbon footprints. The whole concept of an incinerator should not even exist anymore, as we should be reducing waste and recycling more. The increase in heavy goods vehicles will add to the already stretched road infrastructure in the area, as well as further pollution.

The lighting, noise, dust, odours and other emissions will have a negative impact on the health and wellbeing of members of the local area and further afield, when the pollution travels with the wind. Also, I question what impact the plumes of pollution will have on visibility/engines in relation to flights to and from Gatwick. This area is already under pressure environmentally from Gatwick; we don't need to further poison ourselves!

Quite frankly, I cannot believe that in an age when the council is telling us to reduce and recycle, it would even entertain the idea of accommodating such a monstrosity in this beautiful area. Find other ways to deal with the problem please, for the sake of all of our futures.

Having just submitted my online response, I am copying it to yourselves in the hope that you will take on board the strength of local residents objections to this application.  I really do view this as a major factor when it comes to casting my vote at the next elections

There are many grounds on which this application should be rejected:

1. Non-compliance with many of the polices of WSCC¿s Waste Local Plan 2. Scale, location and visibility of the development 3. Aviation lights and site illumination 4. Night time noise intrusion 5. Lack of flue stack details.

The strongly worded objection from Liberty (on the planning website) goes into great depth as to the specifics of the planning policies that would be contravened if this application is approved.

I have huge concerns relating to the health impacts that the plume from the 95m high chimney would have on the people living in the area.  My children will be playing in their playground at Warnham Primary school with the plume particulates falling onto them and being inhaled on a daily basis.

There are simply far too many residential premises for this to be a suitable site.

It is extremely disturbing that such a facility is being considered so close to the proposed new building of 2750 homes. Any prevailing wind blowing from the West or South West, is likely to blow fumes over the proposed development area - potentially affecting the health of the inhabitants and spoiling the appeal of the new community.

707  Caroline Smith - Object 27-APR-2018 I am objecting as there seems to be a total lack of research into this project which is worrying.

I would like to object as I think it goes against Policy W19: Public Health and Amenity and it would be would be seen for miles, from Leith Hill and all of the surrounding area.
The number one important question in a project like this is, is it going to be safe and how much more is this going to effect global warming, could this get into the water and the ecosystems?
The air quality controls had been done which appear to be very far from site.
I was surprised at the fact no air quality reports had been done, no experts contacted.  The only research that they are using is the web based data from a website (plume plotter).
All research has been obtained from Plume Plotter which is a free website aimed at producing data on pollution level of current incinerators and models for prospective ones.  
The problem with this is that it is based on the American (AERMOD) and does not take account on the varying topography or the ground, and so places higher up might be more affected.
This has website has been criticized by the
-National Specialist Centre for Radiation
-Chemicals and Environmental Hazards
-The Environment Agency
-Halton Borough Council

The European NGO recently conduted a study (`Air Pollution from Waste Disposal: Not for Public Breath¿ ¿ was carried out by Spanish consultancy ENT on behalf of Zero Waste Europe) warns that emission limits of hazardous air pollutants as designated by EU Air Quality Directives are ¿significantly higher¿.   These are also significantly higher than recommended safety limits by the World Health Organization (WHO) (https://www.airqualitynews.com/2015/12/09/air-pollution-waste-incineration-significant-report-warns/)

The Sita site in Teesside caught fire in August, 2009. Edmonton¿s incinerator did the same in November 2008, and the Byker incinerator in Newcastle managed it in May, 2001.
The Kirklees incinerator exploded and leaked poisonous gas in September, 2006. Dundee¿s incinerator caught fire in September 1999. It did it again in January 2002. The council has had to buy the plant and pay off its losses to keep it running.

Other facts
Plastics, which are extremely stable. They don't break down in landfill, so don't emit greenhouse gases burning them not only releases toxins but add to greenhouse gases.

The consultancy Eunomia says plastics burned in incinerators set up to generate only electricity create heat at 25% efficiency. This is much lower than the 55% efficiency for new gas-fired power stations.

I see tons of offices putting recycling in waste bins. So much can be done between manufacturers and supermarkets.
Burning waste is just transferring a problem that we don't want to deal with because it's easier to burn it and passing on the problems to future generations.  What kind of world are we passing onto our kids,

708  Stephen Ford - Object 27-APR-2018 Dear Horsham Planners,
RE: Proposed Horsham Incinerator, Application Number: WSCC/062/16/NH
I am writing to express my concerns regarding the application to build a new waste incineration plant in North Horsham. For the following reasons I would like to submit my objections to the application.
The proposed application does not comply with West Sussex County Council¿s Waste Local Plan.  The size of the construction is excessively large, and the height of the chimney stack will have a major negative impact on the surrounding villages, countryside and areas of outstanding natural beauty.
Commercial waste from businesses across the south east region will be transported to the site to be dealt with, which is not in accordance with strategic objective 5, to make provision for waste to be recycled as close to its source as possible.
Contrary to Strategic Objective 11, protect and where possible enhance the natural and historic environment, the proposed plant will be visible from as far as 15km away causing a blight on the countryside and doing the opposite of enhancing the natural environment.
Policy 26 of the Horsham District planning framework states that any proposal must be of a scale appropriate to it countryside character and location.  I believe the proposed incineration plant is not of an appropriate scale and it does not enhance, conserve or protect any key features of its surrounding area, in direct contravention of policy 26. Furthermore, the policy states any proposed development should not increase the overall level of activity in the countryside, which would be the case with waste from across the south east being transported to the site.
A major concern of ours that has not been properly considered, is that incineration does not remove waste. It simply converts it into another form (gas, particulates, ash) and these new forms are typically more hazardous, though less visible, than in the original form.  As residents living less than a mile from the proposed site, this is a serious concern to us.  Many large studies have been conducted which have shown significant increases in cancers, heart disease and birth defects around incinerators, with a real possibility that genetic changes will occur and be passed on to succeeding generations. Therefore, waste incineration is prohibitively expensive when health costs are taken into account.
There has been insufficient analysis of the effects of incineration specifically relating to the North Horsham area, rather just a general argument for incineration versus landfill. For a fair assessment to be carried out the local area needs to be taken into account, the fact that there is a planned school development in the North Horsham Strategic Development directly adjacent to the site, demonstrates the need for a detailed environmental and health study on the impact of the incinerator specifically within the area of construction. Any such development should not be seriously considered without full consideration of the potential health impact to local residents.
On a personal note, I have been looking to self-build for several years now in the Horsham area and would find it a travesty if this proposal went ahead given its severely negative impact on the countryside when I have been told that it¿s not possible to self-build a small family dwelling outside the town boundary as it would not positively enhance the countryside or its surroundings, while having far less impact than a 50m chimney stack emitting dangerous chemicals.
The proposed incinerator contravenes the United Nations Commission on Human Rights, the European Human Rights Convention (the Right to Life), and the Stockholm Convention, and violates the Environmental Protection Act of 1990 which states that the UK must prevent emissions from harming human health.
Yours sincerely,
Stephen Ford

My reason for this - is because Horsham District council has already approved plans to build 2750 new homes immediately to the East of the proposed incinerator, along with a secondary school, two primary schools a sports hub and a business park. Building an incinerator so close to an area of future population density is extremely unwise. The prevailing wind, blowing from the West or South West, is likely to distribute fumes over the proposed development area ¿ potentially affecting the health of the inhabitants and spoiling the appeal of the new community.  

I therefore urge you to reject the proposal ¿ as the plans for the incinerator are wholly incompatible with the proposed North Horsham housing & community development.

723  Angela Maguire - Object 27-APR-2018 In respect of the above planning application my Husband and I strongly object to the Horsham Incinerator.

Firstly our son suffers from asthma and the increase of Co2 levels from the HGVs and the Incinerator will only make him suffer with this more.  When choosing to buy a home we looked very closely into air quality for this very reason, and Horsham was a good option.  However, should this go ahead we would feel very cheated and fear for our sons health.  Our sons both go to school in Warnham which will be in very close proximity to the incinerator.  Surely there are areas less inhabited that could be used for such plans.

We also cannot see that if a similar application was turned down last time, how this has even been allowed to be applied for.  What a waste of time and money, when such efforts would be much better off being put into Schools and doctors surgery so which are much needed in this town, and promised by developers who are building house upon house but never actually being done.

Come on West Sussex CC, let's look after the town we have and start to value the people's opinions, health and education, rather than yet another corporate business make a profit.

We trust that you will take my views into account.

Yours faithfully

724 Ms Ann Marchant 15, Weald Close, Horsham, West Sussex, RH13 6HE Object 27-APR-2018 To Strategic Planning, West Sussex County Council, County Hall, Chichester, West Sussex PO19 1RH

I would like to register my total objection to the Planning Application WSCC/015/18 for a Recycling, Recovery and Renewable Energy Facility by Britaniacrest.  I think allowing a company to build and operate this facility would be detrimental to the local inhabitants, the environment and to the surrounding area as a whole for the following reasons:  

Public Health: The necessity of building a 95m tall chimney makes it obvious the emissions aren¿t going to be harmless and will in fact spread out over a wide area. There doesn¿t appear to be any information as to what all the emissions will be or where harmful particles will go.  The CO2 emissions alone should be considered unacceptable and as the results of other emissions aren¿t known, the potential risk is too great.  

WSCC Waste Local Plan: It would not fulfil the Strategic Objective 5 of the Waste Local Plan as the scale of the incinerator would mean waste would also need to be transported in, as local waste won¿t be enough to keep it working.  This in turn would add significantly more heavy traffic to the area.

Strategic Objective 11 of the Waste Local Plan would not be complied with as this application would not protect or enhance the natural environment in anyway whatsoever.  It isn¿t environmentally friendly to be emitting such vast amounts of CO2 plus other unknown substances.

Visability: The emission plume could be up to 400m high and the building will be seen over a wide area. The scale is totally out of proportion given its location so close to housing developments

Noise and Light Pollution: As it would be working 24/7 the noise, increased traffic and light pollution should not be inflicted on local residents.

Recycling: I don¿t believe incineration of waste is a long term solution to the problem of waste. There is quickly growing public and corporate commitments to reducing the production of plastic waste and increasing the recyclability of what is produced.  I therefore think this incinerator will have a detrimental effect on recycling as it will need vast amounts of waste to operate 24/7.  There is growing pressure for the Government to push for a moratorium on incinerator facilities as there is already over capacity in this country - in light of this no new applications should be considered.

I sincerely hope that this application will be refused.

Yours sincerely

731 Mr Angus McGougan Nursery House, The Arboretum, Broadbridge Heath Road, Warnham, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 3UX Object 27-APR-2018 Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing as a Warnham resident with a young family to strenuously object to Britannia's proposed development.

First, it is not compliant with WSCC's waste local plan as the size of this proposed construction is excessively large and will have a major impact on HORSHAM and surrounding villages.  

Second, it directly goes against one of WSCC's key strategic objectves: to protect and enhance the natural and historic environment of the County.

A development of this scale with its 95m flue bellowing toxic fumes 24 hours a day, seven days per week will be a horrifying intrusion into the rural countryside, the locality and the growing local residential community. The building itself will be visible from much of Warnham village including our own house which sits in historical parkland, as well as many surrounding rural houses. The flue stack will be visible from most locations in the parish and as far away as Box Hill. It is unacceptable that any industrial development in the rural countryside should have a visual exposure over such an extensive rural area and impact residential communities.

Third, the Britanniacrest application omits any details about the emission of greenhouse gases, dioxins and other toxic materials that will be emitted.  This could have a very serious effect on public health at a time when Horsham is expanding and it is hardly likely to attract new families to the area.  From a legal perspective, it could also open WSCC to lawsuits arising from poor air quality and ill-health.

In summary, the proposed development goes against many of WSCC's own strategic objectives, will have a hugely negative impact on our beautiful countryside and adversely affect residents in the surrounding area with noise and air pollution.  I can't think why WSCC would even consider it as nothing about it is in the interests of local residents.  

Please add my strong objection to this application and please use my contact details in any correspondence.

It noted that ¿¿the incineration facility would be 16,479 tcO2e per annum WORSE than sending that same waste directly to landfill. This therefore does not meet local and national plans and policies in relation to carbon emissions and climate change¿. It also notes that the ¿..applicants proposed worse case scenarios could be significantly underestimating the potential permitted emissions from the plant¿

I understand the need to improve recycling and treatment of waste but it is not fair that some of this waste will be transported from other locations around the country - surely the transfer over a great distance is worse off for the environment on its journey and whilst at the proposed location. The pollution that will come from both the incinerator and the emissions from the increased road traffic will cause environmental damage and health issues for residents in Horsham and the surrounding villages. Where has it been explained how the current natural and historic environment is going to be protected? The increase of traffic will also cause delays for drivers.
Noise and light pollution will increase, causing potential disturbance to sleep for local residents, as well as the operational noise during the day.
We live in a beautiful area of the country and you are simply ruining it with this plan. I moved away from living in outer London to this part of the country in order to provide a healthier, quieter and more peaceful way of life for my husband and young son.

751 Mr Russell Lacey 3, Bricklayer Lane, Faygate, RH12 0AA Object 27-APR-2018 I strongly object to this new incinerator being built within then this proposed area.

This building will be a visual monstrosity the surrounding beautiful countryside that resides around this proposed area. The building will be very large and will be very noticeable from afar and ruin the landscape of Horsham and immediate areas.

This incinerator will increase the air quality in the immediate area and if strong winds were to prevail then this would go further. We already have a large polluter in the form of Gatwick airport and having this will surely mean Horsham will be putting many lives at risk with such pollutants in the air.

With many new housing developments occurring within the local area, more and more green lands are being consumed, and this will yet be another large site that will do the same. Horsham is slowly losing its precious country lands and green areas for such monstrosities such as this. Horsham will soon lose its appeal to many as the green and rural town that it is.

The site will be 24/7 and will severely impact local and wider traffic with large lorries traversing the local roads and lanes to deliver their load. This again will further impact the air quality and health of local residents, along with potential increase to road accidents.

Such consumption of our green lands must stop and this site be considered for a more suitable location.

There is no need for further incinerators and to commit to decades of burning waste seems contrary to this national agenda.

Incinerators that have been built throughout Northern Europe have not had sufficient supply of waste materials to burn and are having to import waste to validate their own existence.

Horsham is currently undergoing new housing developments which are already starting to put pressure on the local road network without all the extra traffic caused by this. My children go to school in this area.  It is disgraceful to try to push something so unhealthy onto a community. This is going to ruin our beautiful area we live in - why is it even necessary, no one other than unscrupulous money makers want it!!!!

This will adversely affect the quality of life for Horsham residents and visitors.

753  Andrew Tompolski 2, Little Hatch, Horsham, RH12 4BF Object 27-APR-2018 OBJECTION to the proposal for Planning Ref. WSCC/015/18/NH ¿ Planned Incinerator at Wealden Brickworks, Horsham, West Sussex

I¿m objecting to this latest WSCC planning application submitted by Britaniacrest on the following grounds.

1.     I¿m of ill health, suffering from Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia (CLL), breathing problems, and now treated cancer of the prostrate and also Pulmory Embolism. I moved to Horsham as it was such a clean town surrounded by fields with a clean air environment. This was essential to maintaining a healthier balance, given my medical conditions. If we have an incinerator in Horsham it will pollute the surrounding area and would contribute to my early demise; which is NOT something I am willing to accept. WSCC should be looking after it citizens and not allow such pollution to invade the homes of the residents of Horsham and surrounding areas with toxic fallout from the 24/7 burning of waste from all over the South of England. This is totally unacceptable!!!!
2.     There is already surplus capacity in Northern Europe, so why not send our waste there? They would only be too happy to accept our waste!
3.     This is totally against the WSCC waste policy, whose Strategic Objective is ¿to protect and, where possible, enhance the natural and historic environments and resources of the County¿. It is also not compliant with it¿s Policy W11: Character, which states ¿Proposal for Waste Development will be permitted PROVIDED that it WOULD NOT have an unacceptable impact on the character, distinctiveness, and sense of place of the different areas of the County¿.¿. There is no possible way that this monstrosity of an industrial incinerator will `enhance the natural and historic environment¿ of Horsham.
4.     The plant is planned to recycle all the waste destined to be burnt from all over South East England. This will lead to lorries arriving all day long from all parts of SE England, adding to the already bad congestion Horsham and surrounding areas are experiencing in peak traffic times, and these vehicles will further add to the rising problem of traffic pollution. This is not acceptable!!
5.     What has happened to the WSCC push on recycling when now it seems they have performed a `U¿ Turn on that policy? The plant will demand a significant waste stream if it is to provide electricity by burning waste, so this pull will encourage people to think they  no longer need to recycle and can throw away valuable materials that we are currently pushing hard to recycle.
6.     Not only that, an incinerator is the least efficient method of generating electricity, as for each tonne burnt it produces a tonne of CO2, which will fall on Horsham and the surrounding areas, GIVING RISE TO INCREASE IN RESPIRATORY AND OTHER HEALTH CONDITIONS and burn a bigger hole in our already depleted Ozone Layer. THIS IS ABSOLUTE MADNESS AND MUST BE STOPPED!!!!
7.     The Nation as a whole is slowly moving away from incineration to recycling, so why build such a polluting plant on our very doorstep, just to generate a wealthy income for the Shareholders of Britanniacrest who no doubt live far away from Horsham.
8.     Finally, if this planning application is approved it will also reduce the value of all properties in Horsham and the surrounding area.  It will become difficult to sell a property, as nobody in their right mind will want to come to live in a town and brin-up heir family in an area that is under the shadow of a 95m tall chimney belching toxins 24/7.

There will be pollution from toxins, light and noise. Local residents fear for the health of their children and grandchildren as invisible toxins cloud the air. They are concerned that the visual impact of this huge building will blight the landscape destroying the character of Horsham and surrounding historic villages. The local nature reserve is worried about the impact to the delicate ecological infrastructure they have worked so hard to protect.

Y
756 Mr Martin Cutler 132, Timber Mill, Southwater, RH13 9SR Object 27-APR-2018 Dear Sirs

I wish to lodge my objection to this planning application on the basis that the local roads will suffer additional congestion, there will be more litter at the roadsides and an increased health risk from pollution to local residents.

I believe increased litter will result from the additional waste vehicles heading to the site many of whom currently do not secure the waste they carry so that as I have seen with my own eyes loose debris is lost in transit and deposited on the roads locally.

yours faithfully

760 Mr Luke Berry 12, Wickhurst Lane, Horsham, Horsham, RH12 3LX Object 27-APR-2018 We moved to Horsham in February. Recently we were visited by some friends from Egham, our previous home town. "What's that smell?" their children asked. "That's not a smell" their mother replied, "that's fresh air".

The air quality in Horsham is indeed incredibly good. My family and I know what it's like to live in a place with poor air quality, so we know that Horsham's air quality is its most precious resource. We should never take it for granted.

While I recognise the need for recycling facilities, having an incinerator as well is too big a price to pay. As other objectors have noted,  There is no long term understanding of the fumes(toxic) impact to communities, countryside, wildlife and farming. The incinerator is a bad fit for Horsham's young families and conservation areas.
I also object because it is too large. Recycling and treatment facilities should be as close as possible to where waste arises. But the scale of the proposed facility indicates that it will be importing waste from a wide area. Supporters of the application note that Horsham's waste currently travels miles to be processed. Is it really preferable for waste from other areas to travel miles to Horsham?

Recycling should happen as close as possible to the place where waste arises, but incineration - if it happens at all - should happen far from population centres and wildlife conservation areas.
I would like to see a smaller facility whose focus is on recycling rather than incineration.

I have looked at the plume projections and they will cover the whole of Horsham town. I am also deeply concerned about the carcinogenic effects of this plume to the residents of Horsham. Additionally, this is a grave environmental risk. In view of the serious public health implications, I would like to object to this on the strongest possible terms. Y

I also fail to see how this can be a safe judgement with the new houses and school to be built in North Horsham. I wouldn't want to live close to this eyesore with its environmental impact or expect any children to attend a school that could be affected by the down draft. This includes people already living, working and attending local schools in the locality.
I am a keen wildlife photographer and I am also concerned about the impact that this will have on the local wildlife including Warnham nature reserve.
We have the air traffic from Gatwick to take into account which will stir up the airstream affecting the plumage model of the exhaust fumes of the chimney.
I do not think all of the environmental issues have been taken into account and urge the council to reject the planning permission in the interest of Health & Safety.

784  Janina and Jim Stromfield 2, Station Road, Warnham, RH12 3SR Object 27-APR-2018 We are writing to lodge our objection to the planned incinerator by Britaniacrest on the following grounds.

1 - We are appalled by the prospect of Horsham (or anywhere) committing to build an incinerator when the national agenda is more focussed than ever on increasing recycling and reducing needless waste. There is no need for further incinerators and to commit to decades of burning waste seems contrary to this national agenda.
2 - Incinerators that have been built throughout Northern Europe have not had sufficient supply of waste materials to burn and are having to import waste to validate their own existence. The thought of Horsham becoming a beacon for waste from Sussex and beyond is not an encouraging one.
3 - Horsham is currently undergoing a great deal of change with all the new housing developments which is already starting to put strain on the local road network and significantly increasing the number of HGV's in the area will add unnecessary congestion and pollution which will adversely affect the quality of life for Horsham residents and visitors.
4 - The proposal for the tower at 95m will be a blot on the landscape and will dominate the skyline for miles around as one of the tallest features in Sussex. This is out of keeping with the proposed location and will be made even worse by the proposal to keep it illuminated at all times and with the dangerous fumes it will be emitting.

We implore the planning committee to reject this proposal for the good of all Horsham residents and in the interests of a more sustainable society.

Y
785   Mr Morgan Ryan -, 21, Beeches Way, Faygate, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 0AB Object 27-APR-2018 The prevailing winds will result in the smoke and incineration products from the incinerator being blown over Kilnwood Vale, where I live. Not only will this decrease residents' quality of life, there are potential short- and long-term health implications for the residents; particularly children and the elderly. In reality the situation is even worse; it is not only the residents of the 2,500+ dwellings (current and future) of Kilnwood Vale who will be affected, but also the future school planned for the development. There are also several West Sussex schools and thousands of homes that fall under Crawley Borough Council, that will also be affected during the approximately 70% of the time that the wind blows in an easterly direction. In my opinion, allowing the construction of this facility would be irresponsible and I urge you to reject this proposal (WSCC/015/18/NH). Y
786 Mrs Linda Slattery 35, Greenfileds Way, Horsham, RH12 4LF Object 27-APR-2018 This development is inappropriate both in purpose and scale within a rural area on the outskirts of a market town with a high proportion of residential properties and a relatively low proportion of industrialisation.

The height of both the chimney and the main building is excessive compared to any other local development.

The development would be very close to a proposed, large new housing development with associated primary and secondary schools and recreation areas, and also to a popular local nature reserve which is home to a large number of species of potentially sensitive animal and plant life.

In 2017 the Chief Medical Officer expressed concerns about the possibility of long-term effects on public health from low levels of pollution, which have yet to be understood.

- potential health risk to local residents (including a large new housing development very close to the site)
- potential comtamination of surrounding countryside (which includes a sensitive nature reserve) which could adversely effect local fauna and flora
- increase in HGV traffic in the area
- visual impact of building and chimney, both of which massively larger than anything else in the area.

- Noise pollution
- Additional traffic movements
- Visual impact
- Residual health risks from increased pollutant levels

Living just south of the A264 we will be one of the closest receptors to this site and cannot believe that no formal consultation has been undertaken with people living in this area. Leaving aside all the technical arguments and flaws in their plan, just think about what this proposal is in very base terms;

Bringing rubbish from all over the country, to our town, to be set on fire so all the residents can breathe the smoke.

How can that possibly be in the best interests of Horsham..?

I am writing to object regarding the application for the incineration plant. I live on Kilnwood Vale and have concerns around the dunes that will come from the plant. I am 6 months pregnant, moved to this area for the benefits of the countryside, access to the seaside, given the prices in this area we were restricted on where we could afford. Kilnwood vale has the community feel, with some lovely little parks. I feel that with the road a23 noise and pollution, the airport not being far with its pollution and noise to add an incineration plant would be too much and impact the health of those around it.

792  Michael Gordon - Object 27-APR-2018 Dear HDC,

I am writing to object to the proposal, again, of an incinerator being located in North Horsham, as I would hope any sane person would object to this monstrosity.

My objections are many, but here's a few:
The size of the construction is excessive large and high and will have a major impact on Horsham and surrounding villages as well as potentially Surrey areas of outstanding natural beauty.
The scale of this plant seems to be seeking waste from outside the local area and thus will encourage commercial waste being transferred over great distance to feed a very large incinerator.

The proposal conflicts with and is non-compliant  West Sussex County Council's waste local plan on many levels.

Places like Warnham Nature Reserve is already affected by the huge landfill site situated near to where this incinerator is planned. The wardens there deal with gulls who have waste, plastic and like caught around their feet, as just one example of poor waste management. The impact from additional lorries and the fumes emitting from the incinerator will be untold..

We are already blighted by some of the worst littering along the A264 and A24 and the surrounding roads that I have seen since I moved here 20 years ago. The waste being transported from far and wide to this proposed site will increase this littering a hundred fold, despite all the assurances Britaniacrest can give you. Most of this 'litter' is of course commercial waste falling off the back of lorries, vans, etc as you can see on virtually every main road you care to drive along in West Sussex.
If we value Horsham's location, and surrounding natural beauty then you should reject this plan.

Yours sincerely

795  Ceri Turner - Object 27-APR-2018 Dear Sirs

I am writing to you to object to your planning application for the incinerator as referenced above.

Having just moved to West Sussex I am bitterly disappointed to hear that you are considering an application which in my opinion would be detrimental to the county.

Primarily I am concerned about air pollution caused by the incinerator itself and by the pollution caused by the additional transfer of material to the site. What we love about Horsham is how much of a family town it is. To congest the roads with transport and traffic and pollute the air with additional fumes will surely be off putting to more families moving to the town.

I am also concerned about the recent assessment of the accompanying carbon assessment for the incinerator (Ni4H). It found the assessment fundamentally flawed and noted that the facility would be 16,479 tcO2e per annum which I read is worse than sending the same waste directly to landfill. In such not meeting local and national policies for carbon emissions and climate change.

Finally I am also concerned about the potential damage to the surrounding area including Sussex High Weald AONB and local reservoirs.

Your faithfully

My two children attend Warnham CEP - a mere stones throw from the site - which we specifically chose for it countryside location. My daughter suffers from asthma and it concerns me terribly that she will be adversely affected by the emissions spewing out put this site.

Furthermore, having lived in Horsham  all my life, I believe this will change Horsham forever, it will not be a sussex market town and will no longer be a desirable location to move to. This will have a knock on effect on the economy, when we are already struggle to attract businesses to the office space and retail units? This will diminish the appeal of Horsham Further.

The already choked roads around Horsham will become gridlocked. Have to ever tried getting out of Horsham at 8am on a weekday? It is difficult enough now without the extra heavy lorry traffic that this will cause.

How will this affect the north of Horsham development? Surely building a housing estate right next to this facility will mean the housing does not sell?

Please please please put the health, wellbeing and concerns of the people of Horsham first, do the right thing and reject this application.

Yours

I do not believe in burning value resources and I feel it will discourage recycling, and encourage futher a throw away society.
The building itself would be an imposing blot on the landscape, that would be seen from far and wide affecting the character of horsham.
Waste from outside the area would be brought in to feed the incinerator, increasing hgv trafffic on our already congested roads (A24 A264 and A29)thus leading to more pollution.

801  Hayley Webb - Object 28-APR-2018 I am writing in response to the planning application WSCC/015/18/NH.

I object to this planning application at  Wealden Brickworks, Langhurstwood Road, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 4QD and ask that permission be refused because I am worried about the health impact. Incinerators emit a variety of toxic substances, such as dioxins, heavy metals and fine particulates, which will increase the levels of toxic substances present in the environment and have well documented negative health impacts. For example, dioxins are known carcinogens, and can also give rise to a range of other health impacts. Although promoters of incineration point to studies that claim incinerators do not pose a health hazard, it remains the case that the UK Health Protection Agency has commissioned a new study into ¿birth outcomes¿ around incinerators in the wake of research showing increased child deaths near incinerators, and in response to demands to reassess its current advice that incinerators are ¿not a significant risk to public health¿. The Human Health Risk Assessment in Appendix 14.1 of the Planning Application shows that the cadmium exposure predictions for local children is above the health threshold. The fear of negative health impact will itself have an impact on the health and well-being of residents in the area.

A UK report entitled ¿The Health Effects of Waste Incinerators¿ by the British Society for Ecological Medicine was conducted in 2005 and then updated in 2008. http://www.bsem.org.uk/uploads/IncineratorReport_v3.pdf.
This report states ¿.... fine particulate pollution plays an important role in both cardiovascular and cerebrovascular mortality (see section 3.1) and demonstrating that the danger is greater than previously realised. More data has also been released on the dangers to health of ultrafine particulates and about the risks of other pollutants released from incinerators (see section 3.4). With each publication, the hazards of incineration are becoming more obvious and more difficult to ignore¿ They go on to state that¿ ...Large studies have shown higher rates of adult and childhood cancer and birth defects around municipal waste incinerators: the results are consistent with the associations being causal. Several smaller epidemiological studies support this interpretation and suggest that the range of illnesses produced by incinerators may be much wider¿
West Sussex county council would be failing in its duty to the environment and to the people of Horsham  and surrounding areas by allowing a permit to operate to be granted. We trust you will take our concerns with the sincerity intended and we look forward to your response.
Yours sincerely

I would like my objection to the proposed incinerator at North Horsham to be recorded.

803  Debbie Pickles - Object 28-APR-2018 Sirs,

I have been a resident of North Horsham for 23 years.  I attended the meeting last Friday evening at the Tythe Barn, Pondtail Road.   I was horrified to hear about the proposals of waste management firm Britianniacrest to build an industrial sized incinerator, the height of Big Ben, which will tower above the rural skyline.  This will clearly damage the beauty of North Horsham and the surrounding villages and area and the visual impact of his monstrosity will destroy the character of our market town and decrease house prices.  

My objection is also because of the discharge from this incinerator on the Warnham Nature Reserve which will affect the flora and fauna and wildlife in that area, as well as our beautiful woodlands.

The increase of the harmful CO2 level emissions over a highly populated region will affect our health, and we have many nurseries and schools nearby which will be affected.  Governments around the world are attempting to reduce the CO2 levels!!

There is already so much more congestion and rubbish alongside the roadways with all the extra traffic coming into Horsham.  There have been increased accidents which are reported daily in the local press and media and with all the waste lorries travelling into Langhurstwood Road, this will be compounded.  Our roads simply will not be able to sustain such volumes of traffic.

Finally, the size and scale of the building as well as light and noise pollution and the impact on the current recycling facility is why I most definitely wish to add my objection to the proposed incinerator being built here.  I cannot believe that you are planning on allowing this to go ahead, alongside the 2,700 dwellings which Liberty Property Trust are building !  It is ludicrous.

Yours faithfully

I wish to register my objection to the plan to the building of an incinerator in Horsham.

We already have alternative methods of waste handling and energy production with an anaerobic digester.

This incinerator will be run by private company that wishes to import commercial and industrial waste from all over the south of England, purely for financial gain.

The building will be eyesore visible for miles in the beautiful landscape of rural West Sussex destroying the character of Horsham and surrounding historic villages. Also there will be pollution from toxins, light and noise. All of which will affect health of the local population, putting more pressure on already stretched services

Also it will impact the delicate ecological infrastructure that the Nature Reserve have worked so hard to protect.

We must recycle waste not burn it!

806  Mark Wood - Object 28-APR-2018 To whom it may concern

I am writing to inform you that I am objecting to the planning application reference WSCC/015/018/NH relating to the Britaniacrest incinerator for the following reasons.

1.  The incinerator will be next to the North Horsham Development, potentially adjacent to the site proposed for a school.  The World Health Organisation advises that areas near a waste incinerator should not be populated and as such you have a duty of care to ensure that this does not happen.

2.  Transport to and from the incinerator will increase pollution by adding more Co2 and Nox emissions.  Additional HGV's will put more pressure on already heavily congested roads in and out of Horsham making it even more difficult to access Horsham than it already is.

3.  More analysis needs to be undertaken to understand if there is really a demand for additional incinerators and if they are in fact counter productive by leading to lower recycling.  What is the basis for building this incinerator?  Demand or to make a profit?  What benefit will the local economy derive if the incinerator is built?  Who will have to pay for the maintenance of roads that are damaged by high volumes of HGV'S?

4. Horsham has seen some major redevelopments over the past few years and will see even more in the future and whilst I see the need to provide housing I don't understand the rationale for building the incinerator.  Also I have a concern that allowing such a tall structure to be built may set a precedent and lead to more high rise structures being built in and around Horsham spoiling (even more) the look and feel of the town and surrounding countryside.  I would not like to see high rise structures appearing anywhere.

Yours sincerely

I'm sure you will all have received a number of objections against the Incinerator in Horsham recently and I do not intend to repeat these as I would like to think the message is clear by now.  

Instead, I would like to simply ask you to consider what this proposal is really about in the most simple of terms:

Bringing rubbish from all over the country, to our town, to be set on fire so all the residents can breathe the smoke.

How can that possibly be in the best interests of Horsham..?

There can be no political pressure, weighted balance of need or financial gain, that can possibly outweigh condemning our children to live under a cloud of burning waste.

I urge you all to represent your constituents and fight to save this town and its inhabitants.

808  Georgy Mason - Object 28-APR-2018 Dear Councillors

I feel compelled to write to you as I am extremely disappointed that you plan to support the incinerator planning application


This project is a travesty for so many reasons.  Not only will it reduce recycling rates locally such a shame given your huge investment and achievements in this area- and I believe it will do this given previously examples across the country and Europe have done so It will also billow fumes into our air these fumes are proven to cause asthma and have demonstrable links to infertility in girls.
Now let me share with you what infertility treatment looks like for those of you that are parents to girls!!

If you have Daughter¿s nieces sisters living in the area spare a moment for what infertility treatment will look like:

* it will cost between £6,000 - 10,000 a round
* that's after the 2 year of humiliating tests you will have to endure
* each cycle will last about 6 weeks
* where you will be injecting yourself 2-3 times a day, taking 1-3 tablets a day more thank likely about 10-16 supplements at day
* You will be travelling for scans every 3/4 days
* You will do all of this not knowing if you will get a positive outcome
* Only 1-6 cycles is succesful
* If you do get pregnant having gone through all of this you will be constantly worried about miscarriage which occurs in normal pregnancy in 1 in 3 and 1 in 5 for fertility patients

so before you decide to support this project please consider if this is a risk you are willing to put your girls through.

On a more practical and less emotive level this will increase traffic congestion and will cause our already damaged roads to be more so.
the single carriage way section of the A24 is already woefully unsuitable to the size of the town growth but adding this to our existing planning is ridiculous.

I appreciate many people want to move to this wonderful town and that is a great thing for our community and a reflection of what a special please we have here but I feel as our Councillors you have lost sight of why people are moving here in the first place.  Country air, wonderfully community etc.. .

In Europe these incinerators are being decommissioned due to lack of rubbish  following increased recycling, therefore why can the council not see this technology is outdated.

I cannot express the extent to which I object to this outrageous project, and I would hope as my representatives in the council you will head my concerns.

Location:                     Former Wealden Brickworks (Site HB), Langhurstwood Road, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 4QD
Applicant:                   Britaniacrest Recycling Ltd
I am writing to express my support for Britaniacrest Recycling Ltd on their application for the Renewable Energy Facility.  It is such an important and exciting facility, and it is vital that it goes ahead.
I strongly believe that the Facility will not in any way detract from the surroundings, rather it will enhance the area. Over the years in my recycling career I have had the opportunity to view many Renewable Energy Facility¿s, and have witnessed the positive contribution they play in generating renewable energy ultimately helping the environment.
We are a highly respected fourth-generation family business and our success is based on highly professional, innovative and customer-focused approach and I have been lucky to trade with Britaniacrest for over 10 years and their professionalism towards the environment, people and safety is outstanding.
One major advantage of renewable energy is that it sustainable and will never run out. They provide clean energy because they are non-pollutant and non-contributor to greenhouse effects and global warming. Another benefit for having the facility in the area it will generate numerous jobs.

815  Andrew Trevett - Object 28-APR-2018 Dear all,
I wish to submit an objection to planning application WSCC/015/18/NH.
Considering all of the objections which can be lodged: impact on recycling, environmental impact of more combustion of waste, air quality, more through traffic and vehicle fumes, more noise and disruption, light pollution, visible impact on the area, environmental impact of construction to name but a few this appears something which is highly detrimental to the local area, with no identifiable benefit to Horsham or its residents, the only possible upside being the commercial benefit to the company constructing it.
A similar request was rejected last year but we find ourselves back with something which is to many intents and purposes the same thing and it is hard to shake the feeling this is an attempt to get this previously rejected project approved through persistence alone, despite its damaging nature.
I strongly urge you to consider the wellbeing of local residents and reject this request.
¿ This does nothing to promote recycling and in fact may have the opposite effect offering disposal of waste in a non-environmentally friendly way.    In Horsham we have recently been moved to non-recycling waste collection every other week, ostensibly to promote recycling.  A move to construct a huge incinerator would seem utterly incongruent with this.
Doing anything to encourage burning over recycling will be detrimental to the environment.

¿ With air quality being an increasingly recognised factor in people¿s health this runs the risk of severely impacting local residents.  While mitigation may be claimed, high volumes of ongoing combustion cannot reasonably be argued to be something which should be allowed within a close distance to large areas of housing.

¿ The operation of this facility will increase noise in the local area and be detrimental to local residents.

¿ The size of this installation would seem to suggest it will be seeking waste from across a wide area ¿ this fails the test for dealing with waste as close as possible to source as outlined in West Sussex County Council¿s Waste Local Plan: To make provision for new transfer, recycling and treatment facilities as close as possible to where the waste arises.
This would likely lead to increased traffic flow through Horsham¿s already congested roads leading to more gridlock for locals and increased traffic pollution.

¿ This proposal does nothing to protect local environment and wildlife and also will do nothing to protect or enhance the natural and historic environment.  Again, the sight and sound of this ill-considered application will have the opposite effect.
As such this fails strategic objective 10 of West Sussex County Council¿s Waste Local Plan: To protect and, where possible, enhance the natural and historic environment and resources of the County.

¿ Requirements to have the chimney stack lit at night will lead to significant light pollution in the surrounding area which will be way above anything that would normally be expected of the rural land outside a small market town.

¿ Visual impact.  This is unsightly and with a very high chimney will be visible from miles away.  This is totally out of keeping with the picturesque local area.

¿ This represents significant an unneeded over development of the area.

Yours faithfully and sincerely,
Andrew

821   Ms Melanie James Overmarl, NA, Dorking Road, Kingsfold, RH12 3SA Object 28-APR-2018 The incinerator is contrary to WSCC Waste Local Plan as transfer, recycling and treatment facilities should be as close as possible to where waste arises. The scale indicates a far wider area beyond will be sought, especially as increased recycling regulations will mean a reduced supply of local waste to fuel the incinerator.

This will result in a significant increase in HGV traffic, in and around Horsham¿s already congested road network.

There is already a well-documented surplus incinerator capacity in mainland Northern Europe, with potential decommissioning of incinerators so there is no need to build a new one in Horsham. Planning permission was granted for an incinerator in Ford, West Sussex in 2014, (Which we understand has not yet been built) so again there is no need for another incinerator in Horsham.  

Emission levels will be detrimental to the local community and countryside. There is no long term understanding of the fumes(toxic) impact to communities, countryside, wildlife and farming.  The location is too close to the local conservation area.  

With Gatwick airport seeking a 2nd runway (recent consideration of using its emergency runway to increase capacity) there is an unknown impact on the spread of emissions with aircraft vortex.

As 1 tonne of waste burnt gives off one tonne of CO2 it makes no sense to generate electricity so inefficiently when we are trying to decarbonise our energy supplies.

This proposal is a massive blot on the landscape which will be intrusive to views from my property, plus the fumes & emmitions which will be created. WSCC have given permission for 2,750 of new homes to be built nearby, how can they also give permission for this when so many lives will be affected.
The proposed proportions of the build are not acceptable for this area. There will be massive vehicle movement & noise, therefore pollution to man & wildlife. What surveys have been undertaken to discover the effect on great- crested- newts which have always been in residence? Not to mention other wildlife,& nightingales which I have heard this week.
Lighting of the project will also be intrusive to the area, causing disturbance to all & may impact on aircraft.
Roads can not cope with existing traffic, the extra amount of traffic movement/pollution from this project will be a burden on our services & affect our quality of life.

In what detail has the environmental and health impact of burnt particles being released into the air been researched?  This is a short term solution to a big problem, excessive waste, but putting a ¿band aid¿ over it, isn¿t the right fix.  Unrecyclable and excessive packaging is the problem.  Not providing better education on recycling and composting is the problem.  Please WSCC don¿t be short-sighted, be an innovator, a catalyst for change and approach this issue of waste disposal with the future of our region/country/planet in mind.  This proposal isn¿t and shouldn¿t be the future.

It is adjacent to the current waste site, easily accessible and the plans demonstrate a moderate, tidy, and unobtrusive structure. If I have any misgivings, it might be that it is not big enough to support the surrounding areas growing housing scheme. This centre would be located on a site already used for waste management, a location that is central to the needs of the communities it will serve, and it will have to conform to government environmental policies to keep the air and natural surroundings protected.
Perhaps some good people of the community would prefer their waste sent a hundred miles from where they created it or shipped abroad, to be managed in a developing country.

831 Mr Stephen Morris 2, Spinney Close, Roffey, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 4PL Object 28-APR-2018 When this application was initially issued in 2017, I sent a letter of objection and now note a further application so my points of objection remain the same as in principle, this remains a vast industrial waste processing plant, that should not be sited upwind of a large residential town / further area of new residential development. It is totally out of keeping with the objectives of the local plan and is in addition to the previously approved and constructed recycling and energy recovery facility.

The scale of this plant requires waste collection from outside of the county, needing thousands of truck movements plus the incineration plume, burning whatever waste matter is fed into the plant, will create pollutants detrimental to the people of Horsham with no benefit to our environment. In my professional career I have had design experience of various types of waste plants and whilst small scale incineration for a local area, with good control of waste matter is morally acceptable to a community in that they have control of what they produce in terms of residual fractions and how disposed of / nuisance caused, the imposition of this facility for primarily profit is totally unacceptable.

There will be no particular controls as to the type of waste burned \n the pollution it produces, notwithstanding additional vehicle movements and diesel particulates involved.

Therefore as the waste collection and incineration will be carried out by the same company Brittaniacrest, I am very concerned that any notion of a comparable specification of an SRF rather than a RDF will not be an aspiration of this process. Moreover at any point in time hereafter this blend could vary considerably and higher toxicity components may arise that could only be detected by local monitoring of the likely deposition area  preferably by an accredited independent body, but the higher pollution would have already occurred!
Accordingly noting that my response is limited by a character cap, I am unable to comment in detail so in summary the matters of concern are;
1) Vehicle movement and diesel and noise pollution. [Interesting to also note from recent TV documentary, that some transport companies are now by-passing Adblue systems required to be fitted to all diesel trucks negating their pollution reduction].
2) Size and scale of plant is out of all proportion to the local community needs
3) 95 m chimney and plume will not disperse the particulates enough leaving a nuisance to the 50,000 local people detrimental to their health.
4) It will also smell, noting that we can sometimes smell the sulphurous output of the existing plant at our home over in Roffey some 2 miles distant! Can we all have a justifiable rate reduction if this development goes ahead,
5) Chimney is likely to be in flight path of any expanded Gatwick Airport and have a large red light on top plus those on the plant.
6) Cable stayed chimney will create wind howl as a further nuisance to those living nearby.
7) There will be noise created by this plant / traffic and if at 6DBA is a factor of four times louder, so again totally unacceptable to locals.

Therefore please reject this on behalf of the local population as of no benefit and of high nuisance value, with an unquantifiable risk to our health.

Yours faithfully

832 Mr Stephen Morris 2, Spinney Close, Roffey, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 4PL Object 28-APR-2018 I objected to this in 2017 and my points of objection remain as before for a vast industrial waste plant, that should not be sited upwind of our residential town & new housing area. It is an addition to the existing waste plant. The proposed plant needs waste collection beyond the county, needing thousands of truck movements plus the incineration plume, burning whatever waste matter is fed into the plant, will create pollution affecting the people of Horsham & our environment. In my professional career I have had design experience of many types of such plants. Small scale incineration for a local area, with good control of waste matter is morally acceptable to a community in that they control what they produce in terms of residual fractions and how disposed of however the imposition of this plant for primarily profit is unacceptable.
In my previous letter I included an article, dated 26 May 2016 from the Waste Industries publication 'Resource';"As incineration becomes increasingly popular, Geert Cuperus from the European Recovered Fuel Organisation outlines the difference between SRF and RDF and the need for standardisation. Since the early nineties, producing waste derived fuels for energy recovery has been a popular waste management option. Many waste fractions which cannot be easily reused or recycled, particularly if they are composed of materials that are difficult to properly sort or separate, may have a high caloric value that can be used in a fuel for energy recovery.  This requires waste companies to produce dedicated fuels that comply with the requirements of clients (i.e. those operating combustion facilities). This is made difficult by the fact that that, in daily practice, many calorific wastes are referred to as refuse-derived fuel (RDF). But as there is no official definition of RDF, the content and quality of this may vary.. This poses a risk for producers and users of these fuels as human health and equipment may suffer from certain, sometime hazardous, components in the fuel. So while an RDF, whatever that may be, might have a good calorific value and low chlorine content, clients can never be sure of its composition because it is not tested and evaluated in an appropriate and standardized way.. it is important to note that EN15359 and its underlying standards do not require any quality level. The required quality of SRF is therefore defined by the client, meaning that SRF quality can vary." Therefore as the waste collection and incineration will be carried out by the same company Brittaniacrest, I am very concerned that any notion of a comparable specification of an SRF rather than a RDF will not be an aspiration of this process.
In summary my matters of concern are;
Vehicle movement and diesel and noise pollution/Size and scale of plant is out of all proportion to the local community needs/95 m chimney and plume will not disperse the particulates enough leaving a health risk to the 50,000 local people/It will also smell, noting that we can sometimes smell the sulphurous output of the existing plant at our home over in Roffey some 2 miles distant! Can we all have a justifiable rate reduction if this development goes ahead?/Chimney is likely to be in flight path of any expanded Gatwick Airport/Cable stayed chimney will create wind howl plus significant plant & traffic noise totally unacceptable to locals.

I am deeply concerned about the potential pollution from the emissions including lead, mercury and dioxins.

If the application is successful there could be an increase in road traffic leading to a negative impact on the Horsham
district.

835 Mr Malcolm Brierley 22, Great Lime Kilns, Southwater, West Sussex, RH13 9JL Object 28-APR-2018 Having added 1000s of unwanted homes to Horsham District and approved the destruction of wildlife habitats for a further 2500 homes in the north horsham development, it is proposterious to consider building an incinerator to tower over horsham.  The known carcinogens and pathogens released into the air will cause health problems for all residents. I will not allow my children to be gased by Britania Crests greed. This cannot be allowed to happen. Y
836 Ms Sue Chapman 7, Quinta Mews, Pease Pottage, West Sussex, RH11 9FZ Object 28-APR-2018 Allowing such a huge and ugly incinerator would be devastating for and ruin the beautiful town of Horsham and local area.  It would ruin the environment, both in appearance and of course in the huge increase in pollution levels, with the obvious affect and impact it would have on everyone's health.  Not to mention the effect of all the extra traffic and large vehicles bringing vast amounts of rubbish from all over. It should not be sited so close and it should not be allowed to ruin our town.  Or our health. Y
837 Mrs Stephanie Charman 7, Steele Close, West Chiltington, West Sussex, RH20 2LL Object 28-APR-2018 I grew up in Horsham and still work there. The impact on this area will be devastating. The pollution generated both by the incinerator and the lorries bringing rubbish there will damage the local area. A large development has recently been approved nearby-who is going to want to buy one of those homes with this environmental monstrosity next door.? The pollution generated will spread into the atmosphere and pollute Horsham and the green areas surrounding the town. Areas of outstanding natural beauty will be ruined, damaged forever. Horsham will change beyond recognition. This burning of waste will encourage people to generate waste rather than recycle so it is counter-productive. The operation will be carried out 24/7 with noise, light pollution, traffic congestion. How can this possibly be good for anyone? Please listen to the voices of the people who voted you to represent them. This is not wanted. Y

840 Mrs Lucy Dunn 42, Charlock Way, Horsham, RH13 9GZ Object 28-APR-2018 I am very concerned about the many kinds of pollution this will cause for Horsham and the surrounding areas - air, noise, light to name but a few. We chose Horsham as the market town to settle and raise our children and these plans are concerning. Why can¿t it be built somewhere else where the disruption will be less/minimal? Y

842 Mr Peter Everett Forestview, Leechpool Lane, Horsham, RH13 6AG Object 28-APR-2018 This has too great a risk level to be approved.  It will be next to a major housing development; the chimney stack effluent residuals (dust, odour, bio-aerosols) have not been identified nor their effects on humans and other organisms; the toxic and hazardous incoming waste levels have not been assessed; the HGV movements (1 every 2 minutes on average) are too great for the roads to accommodate without serious risk of accidents - why not use rail as the site is next to a line with low usage.  If this is a national facility other sites should be explored. Y
843 Mr Paul Falvey Mid Summer Barn, 7, Langhurst Wood Road, Horsham, West Sussex, RH124QD Object 28-APR-2018 As with the first application, we strongly object to this revised planning application. As you can see from our address, we live within 1/4 of a mile from the site and have major concerns over the size of the site, increase in traffic and most importantly of all the pollution.

I have a young family and a son with historical asthma and chest problems. The thought of plumes of smoke above us scares us greatly and we are completely opposed to this new application. We have a beautiful view at the moment and this will be ruined by this new development.

As with the last one, we understand there are still unanswered questions about infrastructure, traffic levels and increases etc.

I also can't believe this is even being considered based on the recent approval of new homes almost opposite. I understand the new developers have submitted a document.

The location of the site is completely wrong and won't just affect us but the entire town of Horsham and the surrounding villages and their residents.

844 Mr Andy Gillett 4, Station Road, Warnham, Horsham, West Sussex, RH12 3SR Object 28-APR-2018 I object to the proposal on the following grounds.

1. The visual impact.
I live in Station Road and currently we cannot see the buildings on the proposed site or it's immediate neighbours. The proposed incinerator would dwarf the other buildings and be directly visible from our house. This is a mainly rural area but this development would change that completely. The character of Horsham will be affected too.

2. The noise and lighting.
The incinerator must be run 24/7. There will be a constant noise and light pollution after dark. We will have no respite from the noise in the evenings, late at night or at weekends.
