People will be able to discuss the potential health implications of controversial plans to build a new waste disposal plant next month.

The South London Waste Partnership wants to build an energy recovery facility on the landfill site in Beddington Lane on the Sutton/Croydon border.

The company behind the ERF, Viridor, says the plant will convert waste which would go into landfill into energy but opponents have raised concerns about the emissions it will put out.

Croydon Healthwatch Pathfinder and the West Croydon Community Forum have arranged a public meeting to discuss the development and how it will affect neighbours' health on at the CVA Resource centre, London Road, West Croydon on Tuesday, February 5, from 7pm to 8.30pm.
