Slyfield Waste Incinerator

The Slyfield Waste Incinerator is one of three incinerators earmarked for Surrey. Surrey County Council has a contract for waste disposal with French Company SITA, which includes incineration of waste. SITA wish to build two incinerators at Redhill and Capel. Thames Waste Management (owned by Thames Water) wish to build a waste incinerator at Slyfield on the edge of Guildford.

An operational licence is required from the Environment Agency (environment and health). Surrey are the planning authority. Waste disposal and minerals are handled at the County level because they have regional implications.

The plant will be visually intrusive, on the edge of Green Belt, put the local residents at risk with dioxins and heavy metals, generate heavy traffic flows.

The deadlines for objections to the TWM Slyfield Incinerator are 13 October 2000 for Surrey County Council (late objections will be considered up to the planning meeting), end of October 2000 for Environment Agency.
