Bill Cash meets action group to fight Blythe Park Power Station proposals

Press release 13/08/09       

At a public meeting last night, MP for Cheadle, Bill Cash, reaffirmed his total opposition to the Blythe Park power station, which would be capable of generating 1000 megawatts (MW) of electricity by burning natural gas. He restated his call for Staffordshire Moorlands District Council to object to the proposals. Cash was very much encouraged at the meeting by the forming of the local action group and the use of expertise, as he insisted that he would continue to fight the proposals every step of the way.

Press release 05/08/09       

 
Bill Cash attended and spoke at a public meeting yesterday evening on the proposed Blythe Park Power Station. He expressed his firm opposition to the proposals and demanded a public inquiry.
 
There are many issues, including environmental matters, traffic movement, noise, efficiency and wildlife, landscape, as well as other specific planning questions. The meeting and exhibition was attended by representatives of the company who also spoke and answered questions and there will be further visitors to the exhibition today.
 
Cash said he would be consulting with local District Councillors and County Councillors, including Mike Maryon, Chairman of the Highways for the County Council.


Bill Cash raises flooding and wildlife concerns over Blythe Park power station proposals

 Press release 20/08/10

 
Bill Cash has today raised the problems of flooding and wildlife in relation to the application for the Blythe Park power station.
 
In response to enquiries raised by Mr. Cash with the Chief Executive of the Environment Agency on behalf of his constituents, the Environment Agency report that they have (i) dropped their objection on biodiversity after receiving amended proposals and (ii) report “significant progress has been made by the applicant” with regard to their objection on flood risk. However, the Agency insists that until proper assessments are carried out to meet the flooding objection, they will maintain their objection to the proposals.
 
Bill Cash said:
 
“I welcome the fact that the Environment Agency maintains its objections to the power station proposals but I have serious reservations about the problems posed by flooding and also the concerns over local wildlife.
 
“It may well be that a buffer is created between the development and the river, but will that be enough to protect the wildlife? I have written to Staffordshire Wildlife Trust to ask for their opinion on this.
 
“In terms of flooding, I had warned of this before, in line with the objections of the Villagers Voice Staffordshire Moorlands group. It is not clear however whether a Flood Risk Assessment, which must now be carried out, can simply overcome the flood risks so that the area is safe from flooding.”
