Hatfield mother vows to fight Hertfordshire County Council over incinerator
A MOTHER, whose child attends the special needs school opposite the site of the proposed Hatfield incinerator, has vowed to “fight the county council all the way”.
Dawn Hunt said she and a large number of parents with children at Southfield School in Travellers Lane were planning to stop the county council and Veolia building a 345,000-tonne waste-burning facility at New Barnfield.
Dawn, whose son Jack has been a pupil at the school since 2008, said she was petitioning parents, councillors and the wider community to try and block the development.
“It’s quite disgraceful that they want to put a �200m incinerator beside a special needs school,” she said.
“Hertfordshire County Council can argue all day that the incinerator won’t affect the children, but I know it will.

“I will fight the county council all the way on this, and it isn’t just me - there are many others as well.”
Dawn also praised school staff for the work they have done for Jack.

“It was the best move I ever made for him by putting him into Southfield. The staff have done a great job – they are a Godsend.
“Southfield School is the only school in Hatfield for special needs children and I want it kept the way it is, for children of today and children of the future.”
