Published: Thu Aug 25 2011

A candidate in the forthcoming Gedling by-election has vowed to fight controversial waste incineration plans.

Lee Waters, 30, the UKIP candidate for the Gedling Borough Council by-election, Phoenix Ward, on Thursday, September 15, has said "no" to any incineration of waste at the Gedling Colliery site.

Mr Waters, an active community figure in Gedling, said: "Forget party dogmas – We in UKIP believe in empowering local people by giving them the right to call referenda on local issues.

"If elected, I will oppose any proposals to build an incinerator at the Gedling Colliery site."

He said: "The people of Gedling will not risk the collapse in property values, the risk of pollution, or the risk to their health."
