Deptford/New Cross Chemical Waste Plant Update May 2013 . Labour Ignore residents Concerns to support application.
Whilst huge numbers expressed concerns about yet another toxic time bomb being dumped on Deptford & New Cross Residents, Labour have yet again ignored local residents, pointing to the fact it seems that during the resent by election People Before Profit Campaigned opposing the plans.
However local residents had a choice and voted Labour who have said they do not object.
You the Voter have the power .. you just need to use it .
part of our joint regulatory work in the Deptford Cluster, we committed to
providing you with regular updates on issues that you might want more
information on or that may have an impact on your local community.
1.Hinkcroft Transport Ltd- Environmental Permit
original consultation period for the variation application from Hinkcroft
Transport Ltd ended on 14 March 2013. As you may be aware during the
consultation period we jointly (with London Borough of Lewisham Environmental
Health) met with the local residents of Greenland Mews and arranged a
subsequent site visit to Landmann Way to address their concerns and allow the
operator to give more information on how the site operates.
listened to the community and, worked with the operator to address their
concerns raised through the consultation, we have taken the decision to
grant the permit variation to Hinkcroft Transport Ltd.
variation will allow Hinkcroft Transport Ltd to process sterilised clinical
waste (combustible waste) and interior material (frag) from cars. However,
this variation will not increase the waste tonnage that can be accepted at the
site and the operator has reduced the amount of food waste stored in light of
previous amenity complaints from odour from this source of waste.
this consolidated permit we have included a number of time limited improvement
conditions (Table S1.3 in the consolidated permit attachment) which will
require Hinkcroft Transport Ltd to improve site infrastructure and pest control
measures e.g. from birds.
have attached all the relevant documents relating to this variation application
for your information (the consolidated permit, the decision document and the
amenity management summary).

2.Mobile Plant Deployment- The Silwood Triangle, Railway
you may also be aware, a change of use planning permission has been granted for
the development of a railway sidings on the Silwood Triangle land.
we had no direct role as a statutory consultee in the planning process or
determination, Dunton Environmental Ltd have recently applied to us for a
mobile plant environmental permit deployment.
is a mobile plant permit? Operators who want to treat contaminated soil
and/ or contaminated waters, so it can be
safely used again, need an environmental permit. This type of
environmental permit is called a mobile plant permit and to have one of these
permits at a particular site the operator must submit a site-specific
deployment application (a deployment form and supporting information).
deployment application form details site specific information and potential
impacts from the proposed use of the mobile plant. Via the supporting
information the operator must demonstrate that the activity will not cause
pollution of the environment, harm to human health or serious detriment to the
amenities of the locality.
have reviewed this deployment application form and the supporting information
and are satisfied with the content of both. The operator has sufficiently
documented procedures for the site contractors/operatives and has installed
electronic monitoring equipment (for dust, odour and noise) and dust control
equipment in the form of plastic sheeting for soil stockpiles, a wheel wash and
a sprinkler system.
duration of the permit for this development is estimated to be 5 months (up to
September 2013). During this period we will carry out regular inspections to
monitor site operations and ensure that procedures detailed via the supporting
information are being followed. A copy of the mobile plant permit that Dunton
Environmental Ltd hold is also attached.
you have any specific questions on these permits or would like to meet to
discuss our wider work in the Deptford cluster please let me know.
if you wish to report an amenity complaint, please call our Incident Hotline on
0800 80 70 60, which is available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.

discussed and detailed below the permit variation application proposes to allow
Hinkcroft Transport Ltd to process sterilised clinical wasteand interior material (frag) from cars.
However, as this variation will not increase the waste tonnage that can be
accepted at the sitethe operator will be
actively looking to reduce the amount of food waste stored, which has caused
amenity complaints in the past.
these two additional waste streams a request was made on Tuesday night for
additional information on the combustible waste (sterilised clinical waste).
can confirm that this waste is from human or animal healthcare and/or research
and will be transferred to SRCL (an Environment Agency waste permitted site)
for treatment. When at SRCL this waste will go through an auto-clave treatment
process (high pressured saturated steaming) to sterilise it.
incoming waste to SRCL may consist of wastes such as dressings, bandages,
swabs, gloves and clothing. The sterilisation process changes the properties of
this waste from a clinical waste to a combustible waste.
part of the variation application Hinkcroft Transport Ltd propose to accept
this combustible waste and shred it within their waste transfer building to
produce Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF). Hinkcroft Transport Ltd’s contract with SCRL
requires them to have a secondary tipping point for this combustible waste. As
part of this variation application Hinkcroft Transport Ltd propose that the
site on Landman Way to be this secondary tipping point. The primary tipping
point will another Environment Agency permitted site in Kent.
