The list of positive impacts identified in the Health Impact assessment is very short and it could be argued, somewhat tenuous. The positive impacts include:

  • Increase in physical activity of manual site workers,
  • Buildings will have ground level access and disabled parking,
  • The site is unlikely to attract crime,
  • Some jobs will be created,
  • Processing incinerator bottom ash in the worked out quarry is potentially lower impact than quarrying,
  • The site facilitates waste management,
  • Staff could arrive by bus.
