A health risk is obviously a bad investment for the people of the Cynon Valley!
DO THESE PEOPLE THINK THAT THEY ARE PUTTING THIS PLANT HERE BECAUSE THE PEOPLE OF HIRWAUN ARE A PUSH OVER? .WHAT ARE JOBS? ,IF THEY ARE GOING TO EFFECT OUR HEALTH OR IN YEARS TO COME OUR CHILDREN HEALTH. IT WILL BE TO LATE WHEN ALL THE BIRTH DEFECTS AND OTHER ILLNESSES, ARE A PROJECT AND THEY ARE WONDERING WHY!!!
THEY DIDN'T WANT THIS PLANT IN CANADA AND A FEW OTHER PLACES . HAVE YOU SEEN THE FILM " ERIN BROCKAVICH " WELL THIS PUTS ME IN MIND OF IT. WOULD THEY LET THEIR CHILDREN DRINK THE WATER THAT IS STORED NEXT TO THE PLANT.I DONT THINK SO.!!!
It has to be looked into after all we are producing the waste in the first place and are duty bound to manage it.
It would be wrong to dump it on someone else on dump it in a hole in the ground.
To recycle is the only way but it must be done in safe way and the people of Hirwaun must be convinced of that.
Just remember the incinerator in Swansea everyone said that would be dirty smelly but it is not. So lets see what they have got to offer.
Proposed development on existing Tower Colliery, a dust bowl for the area, and setting a president for further opencast development as far down as Cwmdare.
proposed wind farm continuous noise level day and night for very little energy gain. and damage to the existing enviroment
proposed enviroparks development which will allow waste to be brought in from as away as Newport to Pembroke dock through the Cynon valley via the railway- thus allowing all kinds of waste from abroad to be brought in, with the proposed Tower Colliery development will the waste from enviropark be then put into the cavity left by the removal of all the coal etc., the fumes from the proposed enviroparks will ensure that the top end of the Cynon Valley will be a blighted area, it seems that Hirwaun is the dumping ground for everything the rest of the Borough won`t except. This is going to be a blight on the top end of Cynon Valley and pollute the resovair that so many Cynon Valley people drink from for generations to come. Who would want to bring any investment into this area with the industrial waste being left.
