SADDLEBOW: Councillor in gas plant pollution plea
Residents will have their first chance to look at plans for a new power plant at a Lynn factory at a public exhibition tomorrow.
And developers behind the plan for the Palm Paper site at Saddlebow have pledged to look at concerns over potential pollution in the area raised by the area’s county councillor.
As first reported in the Lynn News on Friday, the company have confirmed they plan to press ahead with an application to build a combined cycle gas turbine, which would generate electricity and steam to be used in the mill’s paper-making processes.
But Clenchwarton and Lynn South councillor Alexandra Kemp has urged the firm to look at current levels of emissions of substances including nitrogen oxides and some particles which are thought to be linked with the development of some cancers from the site.
She has also urged the firm to conduct a wider public consultation with residents in nearby West Lynn.
David Harvey, an associate of DHA Planning who are acting for Palm Paper on the application, said yesterday that they were already looking into Mrs Kemp’s concerns.
Tomorrow’s exhibition is at the South Lynn community centre between 1pm and 9pm. See Friday’s Lynn News for a full report.
