Braintree: Public view plans for waste transfer station
4:00pm Saturday 12th January 2013 in News
Worried villagers have had their say on plans for a waste centre that could be built near a notoriously busy road.
Essex County Council wants to build a waste transfer station at Cordons Farm in Long Green, Cressing, off the Galleys Corner roundabout on the A120.
It would mean 110 lorries visiting the site each day, carrying 71,250 tonnes of rubbish a year.
A public exhibition was held last week where about 34 residents quizzed council officers about the plans.
Many also turned out to Cressing Parish Council’s meeting on Thursday, where county council staff answered questions from parish councillors.
