Residents feared the proposed work could spoil air quality
A company says it will appeal against a council decision which halted its plans to decontaminate a dump and build new housing on the site.

The proposal by Michael Shanly Homes to develop the dump was rejected by the Royal Borough of Maidenhead and Windsor in Berkshire on Tuesday.

Residents had gone to the meeting to voice their opposition to the proposals for Badnells Pit on Blackamoor Road.

But the developers now say they plan to fight the council's decision.

The plan by Michael Shanly Homes would have involved the removal of 150,000 cubic metres of poisonous waste.

Residents claimed that moving the waste would be dangerous to their health.
