A giant chimney at a controversial incinerator in Plymouth is expected to be craned into position today.
Residents of the Devonport area have expressed concern about the incinerator as they say it will affect house prices. The new chimney comes in four parts and will stand ninety five metres high once it's in place.
Residents living on a Plymouth estate say they're trapped in homes nobody wants, next to the controversial incinerator site at Devonport. The waste to energy plant is already taking shape and is due to open at the end of next year.
As our Plymouth Correspondent Jonathan Gibson reports, MVV - the firm behind the project - is also preparing for more opposition at a public inquiry in Buckfastleigh, over it's appeal to recycle ash at a nearby quarry.
Work will resume today on the building of a multi-million pound incinerator in St Dennis. It comes after a legal campaign by local residents to halt its construction was thrown out by the Supreme Court last month.
Cornwall Council says a waste-burning incinerator is needed to reduce the amount of rubbish that goes to landfill.
Campaigners fighting plans to build an incinerator at Devonport have received a setback with their legal challenge. 'PlymWIN's' case against the development has been refused a judicial review by the Court of Appeal.
Planning permission for the plant was granted last year and building work is due to start soon. The incinerator will burn 250,000 tonnes of waste a year - some residents are worried about health risks. Campaigners plan to continue their battle.
The decision overturns a hearing last year by a High Court judge which threw out the scheme. Cornwall Council says a waste-burning incinerator is needed to reduce landfill. Residents campaigning against it say they'll continue their fight.
