This week the public consultation on plans to expand London City Airport come to a close. Over the last few weeks Jon Cruddas MP has been contacted by many constituents raising their concerns about impacts on air quality. 

 

Today the Mayor of London added his voice to that of Jon Cruddas MP and called on the government to stop approving the building of ‘archaic’ polluting waste incinerators, outlining his opposition to the proposed Riverside Energy Park in Belvedere, Bexley.

 

Jon Cruddas MP is calling for more petition signatures against proposals to build a mass waste incineration plant opposite Rainham. The local MP has been running a campaign against plans since September 2018 and he has already made several representations on behalf of residents, including a visit to the existing Cory facility in Belvedere last month.

On Thursday 25 April Jon Cruddas MP met with Cory Environmental Holdings Ltd on site at the current waste incineration plant in Belvedere, Bexley to discuss their planning application to build a second mass waste incinerator.

In September 2018 Jon launched a campaign and petition against the proposals as a response to numerous reports highlighting there would be detrimental impacts on human health and biodiversity across the south of his constituency.
