My wife and I have been thinking of buying a house in Sandymount, but having read about the planned incinerator in Poolbeg, we’re not so sure now.
Ringsend, Irishtown, Sandymount are in immediate proximity to the planned incinerator in Poolbeg. Will this devalue property in these and similar areas?
I watched “Trashed” featuring Jeremy Irons last night and he investigates the problems of waste disposal, including incinerators. personally I would not want to live anywhere near one of those things, no matter how modern or sophisticated they promise the emissions control will be. The release of dioxins and other nasties into the air would seem to have long-lasting and extremely negative consequences for those who are exposed to them, as a result of the burning of waste. More importantly the negative effects are passed onto children.
Some of the articles online also seem to indicate that this will have a negative impact on traffic.
What do you think about the incinerator and the impact it will have on property in the surrounding areas?
