About Us
MuckMentum is a campaign set up by villagers in Knowl Hill and the surrounding area. We are opposing and looking to stop Wokingham Borough Council's (in conjunction with other boroughs in central and south east) new Waste and Mineral Plan,  which includes Grundon’s proposal for a new waste facility at the Star Works site, Knowl Hill.

When Wokingham Borough Council granted the licence extension to Grundon in 2016, they committed to residents that there would be ‘no further extensions’ yet they have included Grundon’s proposal at the Star Works site for a new waste facility within their ‘Waste and Mineral Plan’ which is currently under consultation. This is a clear breach of their pledge to the residents that they supposedly represent.

For many years, villagers, visitors, local wildlife and the environment have suffered as a direct result of the Star Works waste and landfill due to noise, traffic, stench and pollution. This is a site surrounded by residential properties and ancient woodland, used not just by locals (people and wildlife) but families, walkers, cyclists and horse riders. SEE LATEST VIDEO

This site impacts a wide area including Knowl Hill, Wargrave, Crazies Hill, Warren Row and with the substantial increase in traffic that this proposal will bring, also Twyford, Maidenhead and all areas located near the A4. Do not think this will not affect you, it will. Now is the time to act.

We need your support and help. Please join MuckMentum and if you feel you can offer something to our campaign contact us at muckmentum@gmail.com
