Kearney welcomes report on proposed Hightown Incinerator

28 April, 2018 - by Declan Kearney


Sinn Féin South Antrim MLA, Declan Kearney has welcomed the recent ‘Eunomia Research & Consulting’ report, which poses serious questions about the viability and need for the proposed Hightown incinerator.

Mr Kearney said:

“The recent report into the proposed Hightown incinerator from independent waste consultants, Eunomia , provides damning evidence which contradicts the Arc 21 planning application claims regarding the plant’s viability and need.

“Eunomia’s detailed analysis clearly demonstrates that there would not be sufficient residual waste requiring treatment to meet the capacity of the proposed Arc 21 facility, either currently or in the future.

“The report findings are a vindication of the No Arc 21 campaign position, and raise serious questions for all relevant agencies involved, including Arc 21 councils, the civil service, and the Permanent Secretaries of the infrastructure and environment departments.”
