    Copied from the City Council Planning Portal.

    Application Details
    Application Number08F/2279
    Site Address Land adjacent to Stalbridge Dock Dock Road Liverpool Application Type Full Planning Permission
    Development Type new building/structure(s)
    Proposal To construct resource recovery park to deal with 300,000 tonnes of municipal, commercial and industrial waste; to erect waste processing building (max height of 30 metres); 4 no. digestrate storage tanks (25m high) and 1 no. gas holder (17m high); external plant; ancillary site buildings; weighbridges; balancing pond and layout associated parking, servicing and landscaping
    Current Status REGISTERED
    Applicant Jack Alllen Holdings Ltd

    A quick search of Google indicates that a resource recovery park is just another name for a waste recycyling site and that 300,000 tonnes means it is going to be very big. The actual site seems to be between the Garston Village by-pass and the docks.

    There is a public meeting arranged by local people tonight at the Garston Urban Village Hall, Banks Road, starting at 7.00 pm. There is also a petition against the proposal being organised by the people who run the small garden centre on St Marys Road just down from the Dealers Pub.

    I think this is something Garston can do without, I live here and have to say that St Mary's Road is a virtual dump any way. No doubt they will tell us the money obtained will be reinvested locally and used to upgrade the surrounding area. However I feel that this is a step too far and other sources of funds should be found for an area which is rapidly deteriorating. Are we paying for having elected none ruling local party councillors?

    As a Garston resident I wonder if any forum users are going to this meeting tonight. I am working the late shift and unable to attend. If anybody does go could they let the forum know how it goes.

    Ta muchly.

    RESIDENTS fear hundreds of lorries will rumble through their community every day if a massive new waste plant is built.

    The processing site, earmarked for land close to Garston?s Stalbridge Dock, would handle about 300,000 tonnes of industrial and residential rubbish a year.

    It would also have huge reprocessing silos and gas holders up to 30 metres high.

    Locals claim it will be a blot on the landscape and cause a huge increase in traffic, with 260 HGVs passing their houses every day.

    Bosses at Jack Allen Holdings, which has applied for permission to build the plant, say they hope to transport some of the waste by rail and river.

    But residents fear their house prices will be affected and future developments hampered.

    Cressington councillor Peter Millea, who lives close to the site, said he expected a large number of objections to the plans.

    He said: ?They have sent out around 4,000 letters to homes in the area, which gives some indication of the scale of it.

    ?They are saying there could be 264 additional lorries going to the site for 11 hours a day, which is around 24 an hour. This is an unacceptable increase in the volume of traffic at the junction of Dock Road and Garston Way, which is already an accident blackspot.?

    Cllr Millea, Liverpool council?s executive member for regeneration, also said plans to redevelop nearby land for housing could be compromised.

    He added: ?We have plans to regenerate that area, but not many people are going to want to buy a house next to a recycling plant.?

    Resident Lyn Fitzpatrick said: ?I feel the building of this factory will ruin all the good things happening in Garston.

    ?My friend and I live close to the site and we are appalled by the idea of it being built. It will not improve the area in any way and we are not alone in that opinion.?

    Peter Coe, spokesman for Jack Allen Holdings, said the predicted volume of traffic was a ?worst-case scenario?.

    He added: ?The absolute maximum number of vehicles would be 264.?

    I guess one of the most crucial issues to be resolved is that of identifying who actually owns the land on which this blot on the landscape is proposed to be built. Pressure could be applied in that direction in terms of identifying a more suitable use for the land. Anybody with links to the land registry?

    Hi I only joined this forum to reply to this topic. I hasten to add i will be staying

    I live right next to this site and will be attending this meeting tonight myself and all my neighbours are fuming over this proposal how dare they dump this on us.

    As for who owns the land it belongs to British Associated Ports who have a very interesting enviromental policy!!!!! If this is the case and they are leasing the land they will be going against their own policy. If you search Garston docks on google you will find maps of the dock and an area marked out for redevelopment which we were told a while ago was to be housing.

    Putting this waste plant next to Stalbridge Dock is a joke,. It is massive. There have been new developments around Garston and all will be blighted by this monster. Garston Docks have little time left as commercial docks and the idea was to move residential homes to the quays of the docks - naturally, as water is an attraction for all.

    This plant would preclude any residential expansion. The whole area should be earmarked as residential when the docks cease to be commercial.

    This plant can be put in the fields with landscaping and trees around to hide it.

    No one wants a waste plant on their doorstep, and the council should not put these plants near people either - or even consider doing so. Especially in a location that offers so much for future residential homes.

    This plants was planned for Helsby, though their residents finally got rid of it, but not before they had gone through a number of Public Enquiries, which Peel Holdings raised. The last inquiry was in May this year, which ties in why they are considering Garston.

    It needs some joined up thinking.

    • Large housing projects have been built around there.
    • Garston Docks will remain, but for how long will they remain viable?
    • There is talk of housing around the docks eventually, which is the best usage for them when the big ships stop entering the docks.
    • The commercial estate at the old airport site next door is being considered by Royal Mail. A good site as they say rail lines will be run in - from where I don't know. From Garston Docks on the foreshore? From EFCs training ground around the back of JLA through fields and along the Speke foreshore?
    • The air-sea freight terminal next door at John Lennon airport, which may be a bonus to Royal Mail.
    • The proposals of a Maglev from Manchester airport to JLA.
    • Will this massive complex hinder the progress of the area? Prevent rail connectivity and hinder future housing? Probably.

    What about those people who bought new developments thinking the whole area was to be residential? The have been conned. If this plant goes ahead then residential homes will drop in price and any new homes difficult to sell.
