Update on the Incinerator

I have been made aware that the proposed incinerator on Langhurstwood Road has been given planning permission by the Planning Inspector.

I know this will be a huge disappointment to many residents and the campaign group No Incinerator 4 Horsham, who worked tirelessly on this issue.

As detailed in my previous statement https://www.jeremyquin.com/news/statement-regarding-proposed-incinerator, I formally asked the Secretary of State to “recover” the application, on behalf of my constituents. Unfortunately, this was not successful on the grounds that the proposal did not hit the “high threshold” for a recovery. Whilst this is also disappointing, it was without doubt right to make the request.

I note that the Inspector has attached conditions to his ruling, and I will continue to follow the issue closely.
