CAMPAIGNERS opposed to plans for an asphalt plant have urged people to have their say during an Isle of Wight Council consultation period for the application.
Julia Hill, spokeswoman for Wight Residents against Asphalt Plant (WRAP), which is opposed to plans for an asphalt plant on the River Medina, said: "It is important that people use the opportunity that has been given.
"People have three weeks starting today (Friday) and they can comment on the new information about the proposed plant supplied by the company and the older information contained within the original application too.
"We have concerns that the new information has annexed pages missing and we have raised that with the Isle of Wight Council."
The additional information was requested by the Isle of Wight Council after it said not enough detail was provided in the original application submitted by Eurovia Roadtsone.
If given permission the plant will produce materials for the Vinci Concessions, the company which won the multi-million pound roads Private Finance Initiative 25 year contract from the Isle of Wight Council.
Opponents say the proposed site on the bank of the River Medina, accessed off Arctic Road, is too close to homes and the Isle of Wight should have only one plant — an upgraded Bardon Vectis plant at Shide, for which that company has also submitted a planning application.
Eurovia Roadstone has said the Medina plant would be a modern, low-emission facility.
People have until September 21 to respond to the consultation. To view the plans, click here.
