Local Labour councillors and activists are continuing to campaign alongside residents to stop the extension of Bletchley Landfill.
In Milton Keynes, the Labour-led Council has invested in treating the city’s waste in the greenest way possible and don’t use the landfill. Instead, the waste going to Bletchley landfill is imported from across the area and as far away as London.
The smells, flies, truck exhaust and noise are a blight on our communities in Bletchley and Newton Leys. It is for this reason that the landfill application was declined by Milton Keynes Council. The private operators, FCC, have appealed this decision.
If the appeal by FCC is successful, local communities would have to live with importing other people’s waste until 2038.
Instead, Labour want to turn the landfill site into an extension of the Blue Lagoon park and to create a country park in the South of the city, like we are doing in the East and to complement Emberton Park in the North.
Say no to another 16 years of up to 250 lorry movements a day, with their 1 ton of CO2.
Say no to flies and smells.
Say yes to a beautiful park for wildlife and residents to enjoy.
We have until 5 May to get as many objections as possible.
