Sellindge Residents Oppose Sludge Plant

Residents in a Kent village have vowed to continue their fight over plans for an industrial sludge processing plant.

Kent County Council has backed the scheme in Otterpool Quarry, Sellindge, near Folkestone, with the unit also handling kitchen and garden waste.

Villagers have expressed concern about the smell and 170 trucks a day bringing 95,000 tonnes of waste a year.

The plans were first announced three years ago, and councillors are due to make a decision on 15 March.
