[Reposted] Clean Power Properties Ltd - Tax-haven company's proposed Birmingham incinerator is further from housing than in Ealing, and has main road (M6!) access

Washwood Heath, Birmingham site:

Somewhat distorted distance to housing
- other parts of site are closer than 400m,
although not dramatically so.

Link above for tax-haven web site.

Willesden Junction site:

Gross distortion of distances to Ealing housing,
since the 350m distance is to the far end of site!

Brent distance is not so distorted - just small!

Washwood Heath, Birmingham site:
  • Ex-industrial site – suits highly mechanised ‘high tech’ industrial process. 
  • Site distant from residential properties – deliveries will not disturb neighbours. 
  • Site is buffered from residential centres – the new plant is not visible from homes, with existing industrial buildings between them and the new site. 
  • Site well connected to national and local highway network. 
  • Site adjacent to rail lines – future uses of rail network available to service site. 
  • Site is visible to the public in passing – plant will be an elegant industrial building. Building can enhance local sense of renewed industrial activity. Public interest in Washwood Heath is welcomed. The building will have an education facility where the processes can be viewed. 
  • The site is Brownfield, and the land will be brought into productive use. 
  • Site has the scope to provide local district heating – future development in the area can take advantage of a plentiful supply of heat. In industrial terms, this can be used for heating or cooling, and may help to attract new uses to redundant sites.

Washwood Heath, Birmingham site:

Cross-section to housing on either side
(split into two, to magnify image)

Willesden Junction site:

Two cross-sections at right-angles
(roughly same scale as B'ham; widths of sites are similar).

Willesden is dramatically closer to housing,
and access road is through the Ealing housing!

(There's no attempt to quantify distances to Travellers' site,
or to the Wesley Estate on North Acton Road.)
