As you will be aware there is a proposal for a large waste management plant at the Rothesay Dock, just past Yoker on the way to Clydebank. The North Clyde Recycling Centre (NCRC) will process 250,000 tonnes of waste a year,

The NCRC development forms part of a sister development in Shieldhall (the South Clyde Energy Centre (SCEC)), which will also process 250,000 tonnes of waste and which we have already submitted an objection to Glasgow City Council.

We have been meeting with several other local organisations who are concerned about the NCRC developments. We have drafted a letter of objection ( NCRC_ObjectionLetter_Sep12). If you wish to submit a letter then please download and edit the letter to add your personal details and also add any additional comments that you have and email it to: buildingandplanning@west-dunbarton.gov.uk

Other Waste Management Development in and around Glasgow

There are several other large waste management developments proposed in and around the Glasgow area including:

Polmadie – a proposed development by Viridor for the Glasgow Recycling and Renewable Energy Centre gasification plant to handle 200,000 tonnes of waste per year. Campaign against this is being coordinated by Glasgow Alternatives to Incineration group (Facebook page). You can still object to this development and here is a standard objection letter Polmadie Gasification Objection Letter

Carnbroe – a proposed development by Shore Energy to build a pyrolysis plant dealing with 200,000 tonnes of waste per year. The campaign against this is being lead by Monklands Residents Against Pyrolysis Plant (MRAPP), who have a website and Facebook page. It was announced yesterday that the legal challenge against this development had been unsuccessful

Lifetime Recycling Village, Newton Mearns – this development will process 900,000 tonnes of waste per year. Campaign against this is being lead by East Renfrewshire Against the Incinerator.

Stonehouse, South Lanarkshire – this proposal by ScotGen will process 100,000 tonnes of waste. The campaign against it is being lead by the Action Group Against Dovedale Incinerator. It was announced yesterday that ScotGen have withdrawn their application.

Green Alternatives to Incineration in Scotland – this group covers all proposed developments in Scotland – a really useful source of information.
