A LEADING campaigner opposed to the construction of an incinerator next to a special school has blasted plans to carry out an environmental survey at the site.

Herts County Council has announced it is undertaking an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) at New Barnfield in Travellers Lane, Hatfield.
