Hundreds protest over waste plant
Waste option goes before public
Waste power plant plan approved
Residents in two north London boroughs have joined together to fight plans to build the largest waste processing centre in the UK.
Residents in Barnet and Haringey said they had not been properly consulted about the plant.
They have raised concerns over noise pollution and health effects.
About 150 residents protested outside the Town Hall in Barnet as councillors met to discuss wider plans for dealing with waste in north London.
Bidesh Sarkar, of residents' pressure group Pinkham Way Alliance, said: 'We are determined to stop this plan in its tracks.
'We know that the north London boroughs have to deal with their waste, but this is the wrong solution in the wrong place.'
Barnet Council sold the site to the North London Waste Authority (NLWA).
A spokesman for the council said the site was currently fenced off because the presence of giant hogweed - a toxic plant which can cause irritation to the skin and blisters - made it 'extremely dangerous'."
