We spent an afternoon in Partington, watching the clouds being formed by SAICA and what we think was the power station, on top of this the gigantic bunsen burner was also extracting stuff, all within a mile of each other and in the middle of this was where Linden and Laurus homes are expected to build their development.
SAICA told us there is nothing to worry about as its steam, having questioned that, does steam vanish in the air? does it leave a nasty paper smell in the air? does it give you a taste of paper? and does steam linger for ages and forms a cloud, then merges into real clouds
What concerned us was the amount of this stuff being pumped into the environment, it was billowing out, at one point during the day it was thought that the factory was on fire!
If people are to move in to the Heath Farm Lane development, they will have to live with this all around them and also those at the Future Carrington development, and we have not even included the increase in Nitrogen Dioxide and Particulates from Manchester Road.
