"One of Europe’s largest waste disposal plants is being proposed at Pinkham Woods, a green space roughly two miles from the heart of Southgate / Winchmore Hill. While it is obvious that neighbourhoods in the immediate vicinity of the site are likely receptors of any smells and emissions, what of residents living further downwind such as those of Southgate / Winchmore Hill and their near neighbours?
" Residents at Lower Edmonton, Chingford East, Ponders End, and Chingford Green, downwind of the [current Edmonton] incinerator, are affected. When the wind direction changes intermittently to the east, then residents as far away as Woodford Green (2½ miles) regularly complain of odour from the incinerator, especially on summer days."
