Many constituents have contacted me to express their dismay with a recent planning committee meeting where a Planning Officer was seen celebrating the vote passing and the planning application being renewed.
I have written to the Head of Planning to express my concern on their behalf-not least because of the climate emergency we face, but due to the apparent lack of impartiality shown by the Planning Officer responsible.
The proposed wood-burning plant is not situated in my constituency of Cardiff North. However, I strongly oppose the development as it is a real cause for environmental concern and will have adverse implications for people living in Cardiff North and the city more widely.
It’s ultimately local residents’ lives, their children and grandchildren’s lives, their homes and communities that will be adversely affected by this development and I believe they deserve an apology.
