There have been fires at Waste4Fuel in St Paul's Cray for the last two days.

Two fire engines were at the recycling plant in Cornwall Drive yesterday morning (June 24) tackling several deep-seated pockets of fire.

Meanwhile two engines were also called to the site on Tuesday morning (July 23) to deal with two small pockets of fire.

Several local residents have contacted the News Shopper complaining of the smell of burning in the area.

This comes after the High Court dismissed an Environment Agency (EA) case against Waste4Fuel earlier this month (July 1).

The EA was seeking contempt charges in relation to Waste4Fuel not complying with an undertaking to install appropriate fire breaks and separate areas for new waste at the site.

Since then the EA has served an enforcement notice on Waste4Fuel to stop any further waste being brought into the site.

Fumes caused by the repeated fires at Waste4Fuel have caused significant stress among local residents over the last two years.

Some claim they haven't opened a window in that time, while others say the continuous stench has made them physically sick.

This has led to the suggestion the area around the recycling plant is the worst place to live in Britain.

Can anyone explain to me how this was allowed to be developed in the first place, It's a built up area with a school opposite along with houses and families which should of been taken into consideration.

Surely if the notice which has recently been served states that no further waste is to be delivered means that the huge pile of rotting waste should be shrinking?

What was the reasoning behind the Court case recently failing? Surely is they are taking on waste which is against the rules it would not of failed to stand up? Is this a case of the brown envelope being bigger than the common sense which should be prevailing ?

There is a government E-Petition to have Waste4Fuel cleared and closed.

If Newsshopper can promote this petition, and if everyone shares the petition with friends and family via social networking, it could get 100,000 signatures and pile more pressure on the government to intervene.

Whilst no more waste is being dumped, Waste4fuel said they cannot afford to dispose of what's already there unless they are allowed to take more (cash flow)

There was a dreadful smell of burning that even got into my house. I thought that the woman in the next road who is always burning something must have put something awful on her bonfire.
I have signed and circulated the petitition , although it should be a matter of course that this abominable place be closed down. The E A has no teeth, and no guts! Neither has the High Court it seems. AS I've said before, this would definitely not occur in Central London. IT HAS TO GO !!!!!!!

There's also a separate government E-petition for the Environment Agency to be scrapped and enforcement powers to be given to local council and police. Sacking all the professional tea drinkers on six figure salaries at the E.A should save the taxpayer £millions that could be spent much better elsewhere in the public sector.

The EA have failed and continue to fail in solving this problem, they are not clever enough in relation to the site owners. The owners are very experienced in such matters and know all the tricks.

It is now time for Bromley Council to step up to the plate and use the clear power they definitely possess. I defy LBB to deny that they have this power, it is the DISCONTINUANCE ORDER and it is fully explained below. I am now beginning to think myself there may be some truth in the Brown Envelope theory long spoke about by other readers?

WASTE4FUEL, NINTH FIRE
ATT ROBIN FISK
Dear Mr Fisk, you have run 2 stories on the above, the first on Tuesday 26th Nov, and the second on Weds 27th Nov. Please review the comments in both stories and you will see I have spelt out the way to have the waste4Fuel yard closed down permanently by way of a DISCONTINUANCE ORDER. I obtained this solution from a good friend of mine who is a Planning Barrister from Chambers in the Temple, London.
At the time of writing neither Jo Johnson MP nor Cllr Colin Smith have replied to my posting/s. May I suggest you contact both of these Bromley officials to see if they are taking the DISCONTINUANCE ORDER route seriously and report their response in the NS.

AN OPEN LETTER TO COUNCILLOR COLIN SMITH

Dear Cllr Smith,

You have claimed and stated many things in your comments above, including that you and the Council has gone far beyond what it can control itself, I BEG TO DIFFER. You need have gone no further than your own Bromley Council Legal Department to find the LAW and the weapon in the Council's existing Enforcement Armoury that will deal with the Waste4Fuel fiasco once and for all. It is called a DISCONTINUANCE ORDER and I provide it below.

Discontinuance Orders
Section 102 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 enables a local planning
authority to make an order requiring that any use of land shall be discontinued, or
continued subject to conditions (s102(1)(a)), or that any buildings or works shall be
altered or removed (s102(1)(b)). An order may also grant planning permission for
development subject to conditions specified in the order.
An order under s102 can be made if the local planning authority is satisfied that it is
appropriate in the interests of the proper planning of the area (including the
interests of amenity and any present or future detriment to amenity). The decision
to make a discontinuance order must take account of the development plan and
other material considerations.
Discontinuance orders are made to deal with the use to which land is being put.
An order can discontinue any existing use of land (whether lawful or unlawful) or,
alternatively, can impose conditions on the continuance of a use of land. It may
also require any buildings or works to be altered or removed.
A claim for compensation may be made to the local planning authority under s115
of the Act if it is shown that a person having an interest in the land has suffered
damage in consequence of the order. Other persons may be entitled to
compensation in respect of disturbance in their enjoyment of the land or for
carrying out works in compliance with the order.
Unlike unopposed revocation and modification orders, discontinuance orders need
to be confirmed by the Secretary of State. He has power to modify the submitted
order, including power to grant planning permission or to modify the order’s grant
of planning permission. Before confirming an order, the Secretary of State must
provide an opportunity to be heard to any person on whom the order has been
served.

You now have no excuse whatsoever to bring the DISCONTINUANCE ORDER to the attention of your Legal Dept and report back here that you have done so?

I am dismayed at how slowly this petition is growing. I would urge residents to pass the link (with the spaces removed once they have pasted it into their browser) to all their friends. Too many times people say that matters do not affect them. In this instance, a court order has been breached and somehow the Judge does not find the defendants to be in breach of court. For everyone who thinks it doesn't affect them, next time it may be you who needs help from the wider community.

I similarly asked News Shopper to run an article highlighting this petition. So far as I am aware, they have not done so. It might be worth asking the Daily Mail to do so, as they ran a double page spread on the matter (before the court hearing, and so before the petition came into being).

The News Shopper are probably more concerned about being sued by creditors who might lose their money (they probably will anyway) or might somehow be found to be in contempt of court themselves.

Over 4 hundred signatures are still needed on E Petition s/67005,Clear and Close Waste4Fuel if all the parents in 3 Schools signed this petition it could go forward.During the meeting at Kemnal Manor people attending were mostly Residents and the few parents that were attending spoke of shut windows because of site, children being sick with the smell and being kept in, a boiler blew at school when the water surged back on after being turned off due to massive amounts of water needed to put out the fires,many combi boilers broke down.Parents may have been to busy to attend the meetings but this will take 2 minutes please support the people that are fighting to shut this site for everybodys sake.
