Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We are trying to raise funds to support our campaign, currently we have relied on the generosity of the residents supplying signage and leaflets. The community is united and committed to fighting the amendments to the original plans, but in order to continue with our work we need financial support.
Say NO to AD waste being transported through our villages
Residents in Woodmansey, Dunswell and surrounding areas are up in arms over a planning application to significantly change the use of a new Anaerobic digestion (AD) plant before it’s even built. The change of use will mean waste product is brought to the AD plant in Woodmansey by HGVs.
The plant due to be built at Plaxton Bridge, Woodmansey, recently received approval to process waste products from its neighbouring potato factory which has now gone into administration. The applicant now wants to build the new AD plant and have waste products brought on HGVs through the village roads. Estimates put the additional HGVs movements up to 4000 journeys per annum.
Now the potato factory has closed, the company who will build the AD plant want to change the use to allow waste products to be transported into the village by HGVs. This significantly changes its use in our opinion and local residents will fight this. We do not want waste lorries going through Dunswell and Woodmansey where our children walk to and from school, and many cyclists cycle for work and leisure’.
If these amendments are approved and the AD plant goes ahead, the possible smells, pollution and health risks would impact beyond the immediate area.
Thank you for your support.
