Campaigners fighting plans to install an incinerator in Harlesden turned out in force once again on Saturday.
Residents held a protest against the proposals by Clean Power Properties for a four chimney ‘energy recovery centre’ in Channel Gate Road.
Critics have held a number of demonstrations in the past claiming the incinerator will increase air pollution and traffic volume.
Ealing Council had initially recommended the plans were approved, subject to conditions, even though a report for planning officers by their own regulatory services stated the application should be refused.
However the decision was deferred in August and is due to be made on November 6.

Ian Britton, one of the campaigners, said: “We can only hope that the planning committee can see that there are huge question marks over the safety of the proposed facility.
“We are asking residents from Brent, Hammersmith and Fulham and also Ealing to turn out in force on November 2 when Ealing’s planning committee come to view the site.”
