Carnbroe pyrolysis plant
The legal battle over the proposed Carnbroe pyrolysis plant goes to the Court of Session once again next Tuesday.
North Lanarkshire Council officials are appealing against decisions by both Scottish Government reporters and the Court of Session to overturn the local authority’s refusal of planning permission for Shore Energy’s waste treatment facility.
Campaigners from protest group Monklands Residents Against Pyrolysis Plant plan to be in attendance at the three-day Inner House hearing, having also attended last year’s proceedings in the court’s Outer House.
Leading protester Maggie Proctor said: “We’re pretty confident there’s a chance we could win this and we’re keeping our focus on that.
“Now we’re asking people to come and join us for any time they can next week, to support us and the council.
“It will show that support for the campaign hasn’t wavered at all – people are still very upset about this proposal so we’re hoping there will be a good turnout.”
