The North Swindon MP has made it known to ORA that the Conservative Council Leader has plans, that he has known about certainly before February 2010, that a pyrolysis incinerator plant will be built at Tadpole Farm/Chapel Farm as part of the proposed development of 1,700 houses on the same site. The Leader has made it clear that the incinerator will be of great benefit to Oakhurst. However, he has omitted to tell ORA and people living in Oakhurst until he sent an email to the MP which was a veiled attack on one of our members.
"As for the plasma pyrolysis technology, we are confident that this will help many of environmental needs including supporting an energy partnership with local businesses and reducing our land fill. At the moment the evidence shows that it will be a great benefit to the whole borough, including Oakhurst".
ORA wonder why this 'great benefit' has been kept so secret when the Conservative Leader attended ORA's public meeting of 120 residents in April this year and made no reference to the jewel in his crown. ORA and the residents of Oakhurst are puzzled why he did not make a grand announcement earlier.
