    Story

    Any amount you can donate to help us will be much welcomed as we continue to fight for the communities of Portland, Wyke, Weymouth, Osmington and beyond, to stop this proposal to build a huge waste incinerator plant on the north-east coast of the iconic Isle of Portland.

    The proposed plant is so large it will have to import waste from far beyond Dorset for it's lifetime of 30 years. It will emit totally unacceptable amounts of Greenhouse Gases and pollutants whilst generating an additional 80 lorry journeys a day through our streets and consume 56,000,000 litres of clean water every year. The 15MW electricity it would generate could be provided by ONE WIND TURBINE connected via the National Grid, at 1/16 th of the build cost and no ongoing emissions !!

    The South West already has surplus capacity in waste incineration and a new plant is finishing construction in Bridgwater. Government Waste data 2019 records all Dorset Landfill is small quantities of inert rubble. Dorset is a County leader for recycling, which all gets remade into new products. Wales has stopped all new incinerators from being built.

    Please donate as much as you can so that we can commission specialists to help us fight against this proposed Incinerator. Thank you.

      On 24th March 2023, Dorset Council unanimously voted "NO" for a waste incinerator on Portland. However, Powerfuel have indicated they will appeal. If so we will need yet more funds for legal costs to fight our case. Thank you so much to all who have supporter our campaign to date.

      WIth Just Giving and bank donations we have now spent £70,000 on professional reports. We need another £30, 000 for possibly more consultants advice, if there is another Planning Reg 25 Notice and/or to fight any appeal made by Powerfuel at a judicial review. It is now looking like May 2022 when the Dorset Council will make a decision. The generosity of the people on Portland, Weymouth and the surrounding areas have touched our hearts 💕 . THANK YOU SO MUCH.

      For so many reasons - biodiversity, proximity to a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty & quality of life for Portland residents this cannot be allowed to go ahead.
