Help us Oppose Alfreton Road Incinerator

We - a group of residents, parents and business owners living, working in and caring about the local areas of Derby north - are campaigning against the planned incinerator on Alfreton Road, Derby


On October 12th, Derby City Council passed the application for the ‘Development of facilities to enable the testing of a new technology based on a pyrothermic conversion process utilising SRF (solid recovered fuel) and erection of external 20 metre high chimney stack for a temporary period of 18 months.

In layman’s terms, this equates to the development of a waste incinerator; right next to several densely populated residential areas including Darley Abbey, Breadsall, Oakwood, Chaddesden, Chester Green and Allestree; a World Heritage Site, Darley Park – enjoyed by thousands of people every week – as well as a nature reserve and the River Derwent. (And don’t be comforted by the 18 month temporary nature of this development – it will likely become a permanent ‘test’ site to enable the company behind the technology to make as much money as possible)

The full proposal – now passed by the Council - can be found here:Over 80 concerned people met recently to discuss how we can stop the planned incinerator


Up to date, a small group has been raising awareness and funds to gain legal advice against the proposals. Since permission was granted, a public meeting attended by over 80 local residents showed the concerns of many, and now a committee has been formed to fight this development going ahead.
