What’s the problem
Ecotricity applied in 2015 to build an Industrial sized Anaerobic Digester in Fiddington, Nr. Tewkesbury. The proposals include 18 metre high domes, gas flares whenever the system requires day or night and will result in 13,800 movements of the heaviest tractors and artic units allowed on any roads (let alone our lanes) 7 days a week, All year round. Tewkesbury Borough Council has twice refused the applications due to the impact they will have not only on Fiddington, but the surrounding area. Now Ecotricity have appealed these decisions, with the Governments Planning Inspectorate, despite additional objections from Tewkesbury Green Party, our MP, effected Parish Councils, the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) and hundreds of members of the public , Defending this application is expensive and we need your support to pay the professionals. See our website below.
How does this affect you and why should you help.
IT WILL AFFECT US ALL. If you live on, or use the lanes and roads within a 15km radius of Fiddington the transport requirements will affect you, either through the increased volume of very large vehicles going past your home 7 days a week, or the risks that are associated with 25mph tractors and associated overtaking! Movements in and out of the site are limited to 07.00 to 20.00 but they ARE 7 days a week and WILL be earlier and later everywhere else in order to maximise the use of that window. Sadly the offsite locations aren’t yet known as they don’t have to be disclosed as part of the applications despite the direct effects that they will have on the routes used, but these giant units could be coming past you. The known routes to date are along the A46 over Hoare Bridge, through Tewkesbury or from Toddington via Aston Cross.
We now need the resources to show the planning Inspector what schemes like this will mean to every community.
The Environmental Justification
No carbon footprint justification has been submitted with the proposals. It is only economically justifiable due to the huge government subsidies
