Campaigners fighting plans for a waste incinerator in Desborough are urging people in Harborough to get behind them.
Fresh Air Desborough fear the incinerator - set to be built in Magnetic Park on the town’s outskirts - will cause traffic and health problems as well as being an eyesore.
And they have called on people in Harborough - who they say will be affected by emissions from the plant and its 53m-high chimney - to back their fight.
The incinerator has been designed to convert waste into energy, with the firm behind the plans saying there is no significant health risk.
The scheme was granted planning permission by Northamptonshire County Council in November last year, despite strong protests from town residents.
But the campaign group has submitted an application to a judge in an effort to obtain a judicial review of the decision in a bid to get it overturned.
Chairman of the group Alan Brooks said the scheme, along with plans for a rubbish recovery plant in Corby and an existing anaerobic digester in Rothwell were turning the area into the dustbin of the county.
He added: “It’s time to stop and think about what’s going on in our area. This is a serious issue and we’re concerned what the effect on Harborough will be as well.”
The group launched a bid for a judicial review earlier in the summer after a request for a planning enquiry was refused.
Mr Brooks said the initial stages of the review will cost the group about £11,000.
“We’re getting regular donations from people an we’re very grateful for those but we do need help from people,” he added.
