KCC votes for Sellindge treatment plant
Controversial plans for a waste treatment plant have been approved by Kent County Councillors today (Tuesday, March 15).
The proposed facility will be built on the Otterpool Quarry site in Sellindge, on the A20 near Ashford, if it meets the Environment Agency conditions.
County Councillors voted 14 – 3 in favour of Countrystyle Recycling’s plans, which had been approved by planning officers.
The decision was made following a three hour long debate in county hall, which was witnessed by a large number of the protestors who travelled to Maidstone for the public meeting. read more here
