FEARS that the site of Gloucestershire's incinerator plans is at risk of flooding have been raised.
Part of the site at Javelin Park, where the £500million waste-to-energy plant would be built, is under water this week after the heavy downpours.
Neighbour Rob Gaffney says the area is prone to severe flooding, having already had to leave his home twice in recent years.
But Gloucestershire County Council bosses and the incinerator firm Urbaser Balfour Beatty are confident they've got their flood plans spot on.
Javier Peiro, project manager at UBB, said: "UBB is aware of the current surface water on the Consi access road and can confirm that a thorough flood risk assessment has been undertaken and that surface water management is incorporated into the design."
He added that the Environment Agency was 'satisfied' with the plans.
