MOTHERWELL and Bellshill could be affected by the ‘fallout’ from an incinerator due to be built in South Lanarkshire.
Proposals for the base, which will be created at Dovesdale Farm near Stonehouse, attracted over 20,000 objections before being approved by South Lanarkshire Council earlier this month.
Angry local residents formed the Action Group Against Dovesdale Incinerator, and members believe the ‘fallout’ from the site could spread into areas of North Lanarkshire.
A marked map on the group’s website - www.dovesdaleincinerator.info - suggests Motherwell and Bellshill would be within the expected 14-mile radius for the resultant pollution.
