Vinery neighbour threatening legal action over wood burner

A NEIGHBOUR of a Castel vinery has threatened to seek legal involvement after it has again been allowed to operate an industrial wood-fired boiler.
Helen Litchfield said she would be contacting the Law Officers after a new licence was granted to Whispers Vinery in Rue des Goddards, despite concerns from residents about fumes and noise.
The vinery installed the Schmid Biomass boiler in February last year, but it was shut down four months later following complaints.
At the weekend the director of environmental health and pollution regulation Val Cameron announced that she had granted a new licence to owners B. R. Langlois and Sons Ltd after the boiler had passed various independent tests.
Ms Litchfield, who has written a blog about the burner, raised serious concerns before the meeting about the lack of information or transparency by Environmental Health.
