Weʼre raising £26,500 to fund Save Honey Hill Group to prevent Cambridge's waste treatment plant being moved at great cost to the environment and the taxpayer
Don't have time to donate right now?
***Update 1/8/22: HALFWAY THERE! Our overall target is £50,000. Thanks to £23,500 of donations directly to our bank account, our JustGiving fundraising goal is now £26,500 to reach our overall fundraising target.
To find out more about the proposed relocation visit our website.
Right under our noses, a crime against our planet is taking place.
Save Honey Hill will challenge Anglian Water’s application and for this it will need legal advice in its preparation and legal representation for when the Planning Inspectorate holds a hearing.
A target of £50,000 has been set to cover the cost of the required legal expertise.
Anglian Water is preparing an application to move a fully-functioning sewage works less than a mile to a new location on arable farmland in the Green Belt at Honey Hill between the villages of Fen Ditton, Horningsea and Quy.
Our world-renowned City of Cambridge is being shamed by Anglian Water (AW) and Cambridge City and South Cambs District Councils which, AW says, are requiring the move to make way for housing – housing which conversely the councils say can be achieved elsewhere.
This Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP) is the first of its kind! Never before has this process been used to build new waste water treatment plant been built where a fully operational (and recently future-proofed) one already exists.
In this time of Climate Emergency, it is shameful that a carbon heavy project on this scale should be happening anywhere let alone in Cambridge with its world-leading reputation for education and innovative science and technology, and in a city that can claim the most severe level of water scarcity, arguably contributed to by climate change.
In this time of threats to food security, it is equally shameful to contemplate building on agricultural land.
Anglian Water will submit its application later this year to the Planning Inspectorate. Provided the application is accepted, interested parties will have 28 days to prepare their objections.
IT IS NOT A DONE DEAL!
This is our last chance to stop the relocation. Please donate whatever you can (no amount is too small)
