Sidcup MP James Brokenshire works with residents over Waste4Fuel issues
Sidcup Community Group is working with MP James Brokenshire and Bexley Council to try and help residents who are effected by the Waste4Fuel plant in Sevenoaks Way, St. Paul’s Cray.
Paul Laundy, secretary for the group, said: "Over the past year, residents of Sidcup have suffered traffic congestion at the Crittalls Corner roundabout and unpleasant smells from the plant.
"Fires have occurred on a regular basis (approximately 15 in the past twelve months) requiring the presence of the emergency services which has caused considerable disruption at this already busy road junction and expense to tax-payers.
"Whilst the site is located in Bromley, the impact on residents in Sidcup has been considerable.
"We have been in regular contact with Bexley Council and Mr Brokenshire who has taken a proactive role in this issue from the beginning."
Mr Brokenshire visited the plant on February 14 to investigate the progress which is being made to reduce the amount of waste on site and installing effective fire breaks to prevent future fires.
