Campaigners gather to fight plans for waste plant

Nearly 250 campaigners gathered in Lincoln last night to oppose plans for a new waste processing plant in the city.

The company Veolia has submitted a planning application to the county council for the waste transfer plant on Long Leys Road.

Contractors say they expect it to take them between two and three weeks to completely flatten the site, before a new modern bus station is built and a multi-storey car park with a thousand spaces.

There will also be a new pedestrian plaza linking the new facilities with the train station.
