Protestors turned out at the Cardiff council for the executive business meeting, to further voice their concern over the proposed incinerator for Splott.
Although plans for the incinerator were not on the agenda, organisers of Cardiff Against the Incinerator group decided to voice their displeasure at the planned development at the Trident Park site.
Spokesman for the group, Rob Griffiths (pictured above, furthest left) said that the group was going to write to the local ombudsman, he said: “We want them to investigate the whole planning consent practice undertaken by Cardiff council, they are required by law to send out letters of notification to everybody in the surrounding area, but they seem to have only targeted the businesses, no residents.”
Mr Griffiths said that many people don’t realise the extent of what they will have on their doorstep: “You won’t be able to see where the clouds end and the smoke begins.”
The firm behind the plant, Viridor,was granted a permit to process waste at the site on Trident Park, Splott, last November and campaigners took their protests to the Welsh Assembly Government’s petitions committee.
Edmund Schluessel, from the campaign group, said local residents may be forced to take the decision to court to make their point.
