Local Residents Fight Parkwood Landfill Expansion Proposals

04-05-2005 10:55

Proposals are being put before the council this week
for a massive enlargement of the Parkwood Landfill
site, allowing a substantial increase in capacity from
just 266,000 tonnes a year to a staggering 1 million
tonnes. The Parkwood Landfill site is on the edge of
Shirecliffe and overlooks many areas including
Hillsborough, Upperthorpe and Walkley. Local residents
are fighting these proposals and demanding a public
consultation. However, their on going investigation
into the proposals is raising more questions than
answers. Residents are beginning to see a possible
link emerging between the new massive incinerator in
Sheffield, which is nearing completion, and the
proposals for the enlargement of the Parkwood Landfill
Site. If under these proposals the Parkwood landfill
site was to have its suspended special waste licence
reinstated, the expansion of the landfill site would
enable the ash from the new Bernard Roads incinerator
to be dumped there.
