Dear Tracey,
I am writing to inform you of my objections to the above named proposed power station. As a local resident I am strongly opposed to this and feel many statements made by Wrexham Power are false. My opposition is listed below:-
The intended gas power station plan for Wrexham Industrial Estate has changed its plans as they struggled to get the first option through. They have just completed the public consultation process and planning applications are due to go in during the coming months. Very worringly there images in their brochure/publication have obviously been altered/distorted (size of surrounding building made smaller to make power station look not as big and straight road made to look like a junction-again distorting the size of the power station). Obviously, as local residents we are strongly opposed to this and I am wondering if you could help.
I am writing to inform you of my objections to the above named proposed power station. As a local resident I am strongly opposed to this and feel many statements made by Wrexham Power are false. My opposition is listed below:-
1. Very worryingly-images obviously altered/distorted in brochure/publication to make Power Station seem smaller. (this has to be a black mark against them, I would call it fraud).
2. The land has a small wood which is the only one in the near vacinity.
3. This wood has various wildlife which would be destroyed or move away. (newts, otters and badgers to name but a few).
4. The areas visual enjoyment would be spoilt.
5. This wood also provides the only area where local school children can play safely.
6. Local residents use this wood to walk their dogs.
7. Wrexham Power say Wrexham requires more power. Not true-Wales already produces more power than it uses.
8. There are many recently closed facilities around the UK that would make alot more sense to use.
9. Wrexham Power claims this facility will provide jobs for local people. Once the plant is built there will only be 30 specialist jobs so workers will be brought in from outside the area.
10. The risk of pollution (noise, smell and smoke) affecting the local villages.
12. This area is not a part of Wrexham Industrial Estate.
13. There are numerous other areas within Wrexham Industrial Estate that are more suitable that would not spoil our environment.
Thank you very much
Richard Williams
