PETITION - TRUMPS GREEN CLINICAL WASTER

It seems development around our Estate, without any joined-up thinking, is never ending. The latest news is that Waste Energy power partners plan to develop a clinical waste treatment facility on the Trumps Farm site located on Kitsmead Lane, KT16 0EF. They are due to submit a planning application to Surrey County Council at end-May 2020.

Their proposal is to develop a site to manage Hospital & Clinical/Medical Waste treating over 16,000 tonnes of waste that comes out of hospitals, GP surgeries, dentists, nursing homes, pharmaceutical companies and tattoo parlours from Surrey and the ‘surrounding counties’. Clinical waste will include swabs, dirty bandages, needles and surgical waste.  

This new site proposes to heat-treat solid clinical waste, reducing it to vapour, gas and steam and creating a residual ash that will need to be transported in skips to a separate recycling site. Site safety and regulation of business activities is a major concern. In terms of site traffic, the proposal outlines that it foresees 5 HGVs and up to 20 smaller vehicles accessing the site daily from 7am-6pm (Mon-Fri) and 9am-1pm (Sat).  Whilst it claims there is ‘no predetermined route’, there is every probability that the roads of Longcross, Lyne, Virginia Water and Trumps Green will be used – especially as the waste will be coming from all parts of Surrey and other counties.

A petition has been started to show local residents’ opposition to this proposal because of the concerns regarding noxious fumes, noise pollution, increased traffic and further damage to local environment and wildlife in and around a residential area with an already stressed infrastructure.  If you wish to participate, then sign the petition here:

Separately, we will be directly challenging this intrusive development on our doorstep.

Kind regards,
Executive Committee
