Don’t want more smells

I WOULD like to thank Jeff Morgan for his letter regarding the serious pollution threat to residents from the proposed incinerator in Penarth (Penarth Times, March 7).
There has been similar problems for years in north Penarth and Cogan.
We have sulphur and grit pollution from Aberthaw Power Station when the wind is blowing from the west, chemical smells sometimes in the early mornings from the area of the Cadoxton chemical works and acrid smells from the sewerage treatment plant in Green Lane below Dinas Powys. When the weather conditions are poor and there is a light breeze from the west there is a problem.
A more recent problem is from the new water treatment plant at Tremorfa Industrial Estate near Rover Way. When the wind is in the east and the weather is depressed we get an acrid smell from this plant and the last thing we want is another problem.
More senior readers of the Penarth Times will remember the serious health issues the population of Lydney had with the fallout from Berkeley Nuclear Power Station years ago.
