Dovesdale plans dropped

Commenting on the news that Viridor will not be developing an incinerator at Dovesdale, Lanark and Hamilton East MP Angela Crawley said:

“I was delighted to hear this morning that Viridor have ended their interest in building an incinerator at Dovesdale.

“Developing an incinerator at this site would not have been beneficial for the local community and it would only hinder in reaching and surpassing the Scottish Government’s climate change targets.

“This is a victory for the local community who has campaigned tirelessly to ensure that this proposal did not go ahead and I would like to thank and congratulate them on their efforts.”
