Bill Cash MP takes up concerns over proposed Blythe Park power station with new Infrastructure Planning Commission

Press release 28/10/09

In response to a letter introducing the new Infrastructure Planning Commission, Bill Cash said:
 
“I have today written to the Chairman of the Infrastructure Planning Commission making it clear, on behalf of my constituents, that I firmly oppose the proposals for Blythe Park power station and have demanded a public inquiry.
 
“As I have said many times, there are serious issues that need to be considered, including environmental and contamination matters, intensive traffic movement, noise, efficiency, wildlife, landscape, as well as other specific planning concerns. A power station would be completely out of character with this area.
 
“I have also asked the new Infrastructure Planning Commission to confirm that when the Planning Act 2008 is brought into force in March 2010, given that Blythe Park Power Station is a proposed 1000MW capacity station, this will require development consent from them and so this project will be decided by them.”
