Hyndburn councillor’s fly-tip pollution fears

2:21pm Wednesday 18th July 2012 in Hyndburn

A COUNCILLOR has spoken out about his concern that waste tipping may be polluting a watercourse.

County and borough councillor Peter Britcliffe said he had been contacted by many concerned residents over tipping of waste at the former NIPA Laboratories site at Nook Lane.

Coun Britcliffe said he and residents were concerned about the long-term environmental impact. He said: “I am calling on the Environment Agency to check out Lottice Brook in Oswaldtwistle to ensure that whatever is going on at Nipa has not polluted the Water Course. People are very concerned about this.”

Lancashire County Council said there was no planning permission in place to tip waste at the site and the Environment Agency said it was investigating reports of activity in the last few weeks.

It’s already polluted. Every time it rains you can smell the chemicals in the brook. I think the rain must raise the level of the chemical wells or holding tanks under all the Cocker’s concrete enough for some overflow into the watercourse and then the brook. Perhaps this is by design?
The new waste is hardly fly-tipping. Hundreds of very large plastic bags (think hay bale size) were brought in on convoys of articulated lorries. I thought naively that it must have something to do with neutralizing the site, preparing it for new owners. Apparently it is waste. It was a large scale operation and someone must have seen it and remembered the names of the lorries.
