Cash pursues toxic waste ‘hot potato’ with Staffordshire Moorlands District Council

Press release 17/12/09

“The developers have allegedly said the toxic waste concerns had nothing to do with them. When they were asked, in one scenario, who would be responsible when the piles are driven in from the Power Station construction, which may cause the seal to break and toxic waste to leak, they insisted they had no control over the toxic waste. 
 
“The developers have also said they have put three monitoring wells in and so far nothing has been detected, but this may not be enough considering the extent of the toxic waste in the area.
 
“Officers in the Council also insist that it is not their responsibility but the person who bought the land, and so it seems, the toxic waste has become a real hot potato in which nobody seems to want to take any responsibility.”
 
“I have therefore urged Staffordshire Moorlands District Council, to take the necessary action to ensure public confidence in this serious issue.”
