Controversial waste site bulldozed through

A new waste transfer station will be built in Bury St Edmunds despite strong opposition from Labour councillors and local residents. This is as a result of a decision made at Suffolk County Council’s Development Control Committee on the 17th October.


Even a request for a site visit on this controversial issue was denied by the Conservative controlled committee. This will be the only waste transfer station in the county that is not sited on an industrial estate, and is yet another example of this conservative administration ignoring the views of the local community.

Committee member Cllr Peter Byatt said, “I was very disappointed that what I consider to be a reasonable request was denied. Many of the committee members were not familiar with this site but still voted in favour of this ill-judged development.”
