Micheldever Station action group to meet over plans for power station in village

First published in News

IT hasn’t gone away.

That’s the message from Micheldever Station ahead of a meeting organised by residents angry at plans for a power station in their village.

The controversial scheme from Clear Power Properties would see an ‘energy from waste’ plant built on a former railway sidings.

Hampshire County Council is to have the final say on the scheme which has already been given the thumbs-down by Winchester City Council.

Under the proposals up to 210,000 tonnes of domestic and commercial waste per year could be transported to the site.

It would be enough to produce 7.6 megawatts of electricity and power 8,000 homes, but many residents are unhappy that it would be located just 80-metres away from the nearest homes The meeting, organised by Micheldever Action Group, is to be held at Warren Hall, Micheldever Station, at 11am on Saturday, January 18.

A point of clarification..... The proposed site is NOT on "the former railway sidings" - which form part of the Hants Minerals and Waste Plan. It is on a greenfield site (and a SINC - Site of Importance to Nature Conservation) situated some distance ABOVE the level of the railway, close to road level where unfortunately it will be clearly visible from the railway station, many local houses and further afield.
None of the proposed site forms part of the land identified in the Minerals and Waste Plan although I believe Clean Power Properties tried and failed to have this land included in the plan.

Interestingly, Clean Power seem to have gone to ground......lots of Micheldever residents have emailed them with questions on the proposed development. The mood at the meeting last Saturday was that Clean Power hadn't bothered to respond to anyone ! Do they actually exist or have they retreated back to their Isle of Man tax haven?
